The Snowmen Again And Wire Tree

OK I know I've already posted photos of some of these snowmen on my blog. What I really want to show is the cool wire tree I got this weekend. I have been looking and looking for a way to display these snowmen, what I wanted was a vintage wire tree. But I was willing to compromise and use a wire tier basket, if I could fine one. I set my price in my mind and prayed, while looking at antique stores, I found a wire tree. However it was their display and they wouldn't sell it. I looked for vintage wire 3 tired baskets. I found some BIG ones, but I wanted one that would sit on a tabletop. Anyway they were out of my price range. We went back to the motel and changed for the event we were attending that evening. On the way, we passed another antique store that was going out of business. So we pulled into the parking lot, good thing we were running early. We went in and looked around, they were letting things go cheap. It was full of shoppers and they were buying lots of stuff. So while we were waiting to ask about a price on something else, there it was sitting on the counter!!!! A wire tree, I asked is that for sale, yes!!! How much, $15.00, I'll take it!!! I holds lots, so I've got to get busy and fill it up with handmade ornaments. I'm having a booth at a craft show in Dec. So if you are in Waller, Texas Dec.3rd come look for me, Morning Glory Craft Cottage.
