Drumroll please.........

The find of the 127 Sale is......

This gorgeous vintage bottle brush Christmas tree -- pink Pink PINK!
Lots of shimmery flocking, pink Christmas balls, on fluffy pink branches......
and it's about two feet tall.....


I have been looking at these for years on eBay; they go for around $100 or more (in fact, one exactly like it just sold a few days ago for $103 plus shipping). And now I have one!!

And did I mention it's PINK?
Is it Christmas yet?

I'm so glad you enjoyed seeing all my finds; I certainly enjoyed sharing them with you!! I bought a couple of things at my favorite shabby shoppe yesterday; so I'll be posting those soon too.

I am attending a tea today with two dear friends. Hope you are having a happy Friday!

Oh Becca, *faints* I LOVE your Christmas tree! It is simply gorgeous! A perfect pink addition to your Christmas decor; problem is, it's so pretty, one would want to leave it out all year round. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

That is so pretty! How great is that that you have been trying to find one on Ebay and then you find one at the garage sale? I hope you got a good deal!

I love that pink tree. I can't believe they sell for that much. You should have bought a few, kept one and sold the rest.
I think you have inspired me to do more of a pink Christmas theme this year.

Hello, Becca,
