    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marty! Yes, that blue tree is my favorite;)

  5. Lora, your arrangement is so precious! I love that you added the cardinals and white pom poms. I wish I had thought of something like that for my box, too. Thanks for the good ideas! I’ll bet that handyman had no idea how pretty his tool caddy could be! I really enjoyed your photography, too.

      I don’t have any vintage bottle brush trees, but I sure do enjoy the new ones:)

  10. Great tip on using the poly to seal the old wood and it really gives it more character. Love the arrangement with bottle brush trees and Cardinals. What a pretty combination!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Michelle! I really like how the combination of textures turned out:)

    Lora, your bottle brush Christmas trees are a perfect twist to the wooden ones in the inspiration photo! Love your ‘tool’ crate too! Perfect for this Pinterest Challenge!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Julie!

  12. What a cool crate! I can picture a guy hauling around with all sorts of tools inside it. I wonder what stories it could tell! Adding the cardinal to your greenery is the perfect pop of color! I love what you did this month.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Paula:) Adding a little bird is the cherry on top. But I was thinking some twinkle lights might be nice, too…

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laura! I love seeing them outside the window, too. Better fill my feeder:)
