Second Americana Tree Reveal

Good morning everyone.
It's a cloudy one here.
I took the day off today for
therapy and dr appts.
I am currently back to 80% with my shoulder.
Later have to have a dentist appt.
Have to take care of a cavity .

So whilst I have some time to kill,
I will work on some Fall goodies...
but first will show you the second tree.

I wanted to make some firecrackers.
With Bob's assistance, he cut a wood dowel for me
into 3 1/4 inch lengths.
I then cut fabric to wrap around the dowel,
and glued to the dowel using Eileen's Tacky Glue.
Bob also drilled a tiny hole at one end, 
which I then glued a piece of twine for the fuse.

The fireworks fit perfectly
 into these antique silver candle holders.

Being it is June, I also made these red juicy strawberries.

My latest teddy sitting watch playing with his yo yo.
Another scrpit crock in back.

One of my dollies made from a 
Cat Nap Primitives pattern.
She proudly sits on top watching the parade....
the parade of folks coming in and out of the house.
Plus the kitties running around.

Did you notice I also added some more
vintage silver ornaments?

I hope you all have a fabulous day today!

Tuesday Tree Blessings To All!
