Tree Top Decor. . .

Working through the seasonal changes 
of our 1970's Ranch Style homes decor, I always begin at the top!

Today, On Crooked Creektt, was true of my convictions. . .

thus the Dining Room has the added touch of Tree Top Decor.

I began by simply winding a twiggy faux branch 
through the arms of the chandelier.

I positioned a few branches streaming upwards to the ceiling. . .

and a few downwards towards the tabletop.

I added one sprig of faux greenery
which I separated into three individual pieces
and tucked it in at even intervals around the base of the chandelier.

With my feet firmly planted on the top step of my ladder,
I felt as if I were reminiscing the tree climbing days of my youth.

One of the joys of tree climbing is of the unseen treasures one finds. . .

My favorite Spring through Autumn decor accessory
is this faux bird's nest on a twiggy branch.

Our feathered friends 
that frequent the feeders On Crooked Creektt
have been supplying "Mr. Ed" and I 
with harmonious melodies all season through.

So~o~o. . .
whether viewed from above. . .

or from below. . . 

I'm bringing a touch of the out~of~doors
to our Dining Room On Crooked Creektt for our dining pleasure!

OK Pat I'm in love with this, hope you don't mind if I copy the heck out of this for my house. Thanks for sharing.

A good idea, I like especially the little nest. That adds a lot! Hope you are doing well, you sound like you are keeping busy in your "retirement!"
