Festival of Trees

The Boise Festival of Trees opens today!  For a complete list of events; visit  http://www.saintalphonsus.org/Foundation-FOT-tree-details.html

This year I decided to donate a wreath; made of squiggly copper--upcycled from the scrap yard.  It was a bit of a chore to polish it up again, but well work the effort in the end.
Light & airy, accents include snowflake shaped crystals, pearls in white, cream, & burgundy, organza ribbons, & a vintage rhinestone bauble...
I'm not sure how it all works, as this is my first year, but I think you can vote for your fav. wreath (hint hint)And they will all be auctioned off, with the proceeds benefiting St Alphonsus.  So, put in a bid & take this crazy copper sparkly-ness home with you for the holidays :)
The Festival opens today at the Boise Center on the Grove & runs through the 28th (Sunday).
Events include live music, a fashion show, magic show, and of course visiting with Santa; you can even bring the kids down for breakfast with Santa :)  Check out the link above for all the details.

Grab a hot cup of coffee at Tully's right across the street--and see some of my other sculptures, btw--and join the festivities: sound like lots more fun the Black Friday shopping to me :)
