Here are some photos of the pencil pine tree we have up at our cottage in the north of Holland. Since the cottage's garden borders on the edge of the national forest, I wanted a tree there that looked very natural like its surroundings. I used birds, walnuts and cranberries. My mother gave me the cardinals to remember my home state of Ohio and the birdhouse for a tree top. I made a tree skirt by simply making a single quilt block and cutting it open and cutting out a center hole. Unfortunately, these photos does not do the tree justice. I need to research taking photos of Christmas trees but I hope you enjoy seeing this tree.
I am working on our decorations here at the house now too and will be posting photos of the tree here very soon.
