Well knock me over with a feather!

If you're willing to put in some time crawling around specialty stores to comb their off- (off-off-OFF) season shelves (or dusty boxes) you could find something perfectly fancy for 72 cents, like this fabulous black Halloween feather tree...


The other lady of the house seems to approve of the purchase, too. (Either that or she sees a bird outside.)

Is it Halloween yet?

Laura, LOL! What a cute post, and I am hoping that Halloween is far, far away as I don't think I've recuperated from last Christmas yet, and if it were Halloween, it would mean Christmas would be nearby. So don't enourage it because I've got to have some down time after this last one. LOL!

Love your tree, friend! And really loved the price! :-)

XO,

Sheila

LOL... I love these pic!! They say the eyes are to the soul- She must have saw an ole soul floating around!!

Your little tree is not a steal, but high robbery!! LOL.. If you are going to climb, crawl and roll around in dusty bunnies you so deserve it!

Sweet dreams! xoxo

72 cents?! What a great find! And might I say the other lady of the house has a *beautiful* profile... ;)

P.S. I fell in love with the story of the My-T-fine butterscotch pudding. That's the best one yet.;)
