Christmas trees

I just made these new trees. Remember spending hours putting a fake tree together? All those branches are color coded and then you have to put them on the base in a certain order. These trees are made out of antique tin. The tin comes from the roof of an old family barn. The barn was built in 1912 by my Great-Great Grandfather and was struck by lightening in 2008. With almost 100 years of weathering the tin has a beautiful and unique appearance. The trees stand about 27 inches tall with a 10 inch base. They don't need watering and you don't have to put them together. A perfect little tree!! Check them out at
