Were It All Began For me. . . Mary Carol Garrity's Trees
When I first saw her book and then found out she held a fall and winter open house for free I begged my husband to take me. Not only did I go once but twice to Mary Carol's home.
If by now you don't know who she is just take a look at her blog, or follow her on facebook or pinterest of order any or all of her books. www.nellhillsblog.com
After seeing her two small trees lifted up in massive urns on a tabletop I was a fan for life.
Just look at these trees above. One is in her dinning room and the other in her living room. You might think because they are smaller in scale they are not as elegant as a larger tree, well I have to say that I find them to be even more stunning and jaw dropping. Don't ask me why but lifting the tree up unto a table gives it a wow factor. As we all walked through her home that November and marveled at these trees, everyone who walked by them stood mesmerized at their beauty.
Mary Carol's open house is the weekend of Nov 8 & 9. If you can make sure to go. It is a wonderful experience.
As October comes to an end I can't help but think about the holiday season and my mind begins to plan ways to make my trees a little different and more exciting.
