Taaaa-Daaa~~~~~!

Well....My fall themed tree has come together~~~Finally!! I just had to show you how great this beautiful exchange piece from Berit looks on my tree....I can hang it on a cupboard door knob or have it showcased in my tree......LOVE IT!
Here is the full length view of the four foot decorated tree...... I still have room for a few more ornies, so I may work on a couple more fall-ish goodies....
I did end up putting the La~D~Da Letters & Leaves ditty bag at the top of the tree...I like how the foliage pops out of the top of the bag as my tree topper....
You know Homespun Elegance is one of my all time favorite designers so I had to put my new little "Boo" ornie front and center!!
Then at the foot of the tree, I have placed several goodies that needed a flat surface.... I think these fill the space quite well....

And, then next to my tree is a basket filled with a few more things that make me smile.... Do you know I have a thing for birds??? Ironically there is a bird on each item in this basket~~

So, there you have it.....It is a glimpse of my corner of the world...I sit in my craft room "Happy Chair", stitch and gaze up at my tree when I get in from work.......At night, with the clear lights glowing on the tree, it is really quite relaxing....
I hope everyone has a great day....We are headed to Chapel Hill for a big-time football game between North Carolina and Georgia Tech.... The men left out at 545 this morning to get the grills and tents set up...........We feed a crowd!!~~~ So, go Tarheels and hope you have a super great day~~~
Faye

It looks really nice and all the ornies are so pretty. I can understand how relaxing and fulfilling it must be to sit and see your gorgeous tree. Happy Fall.

Oh and I have to say, I love birds too...will really pull me in, if a design has at least one bird on it!

LOVE your tree. Everything looks just beautiful. I know what you mean about coming home for work and going to your stitching chair and then everything just seems right with the world.

Faye, oh my gosh! That is SOOOOOOOOO pretty!! I am in awe. Wow. I have been feeling rather blah-ish about stitching lately and seeing your pics has really given me a kick up the backside. Thanks! Great job!

Mary said...

Beautiful tree, Faye. Everything is unique and special for the season. Lucky you to sit in your "happy corner" and admire your lovely work and the kind treats from others too.
I especially like your tree topper in the bag:)
GREAT JOB!!

staci said...

I just love your seasonal tree...and this one is no exception! Now if only I stitched and finished things as quickly, beautifully and creatively as you!

Berit said...

Oh, how gorgeous! :o My favorite part of Christmas is just hanging out with the lighted tree--they are so relaxing with their warm lights! I'm loath to put it away each year.

I did not know that you are a particular Homespun Elegance fan--but I am so happy that you are, too!

I think my favorite part of this tree might be the Jenny Bean and other goodies laid out beneath--just wonderful, Faye!

PegC said...

Faye it seems this is the first year I've gotten plugged into the fall theme--your tree and arrangements are so lovely--thanks for giving me such wonderful ideas.

Patti said...

What a great idea having a Fall tree! Why didn't I think of that? Because I'm not as smart as you that's why. The exchange you received from Berit is just gorgeous and looks stunning on your Fall Tree.
Lots of Love
