  1. The chippy wood trees are awesome. And after the holidays you can leave them up for the winter. And the tin look trees are a really easy and unique way to get the look of “real tin”. And the button ornaments! Well. Let’s say it’s right up my alley! Love it. ❤️ Thanks Donna for again hosting a fabulous party.
