My new feather tree



Well I’ll be a lucky girl!

Last week at the goodwill I found this awesome Feather Tree for $9.99.

How’s that for a deal?

Then mom came over and made me a bunch of cinnamon and applesauce ornaments.

Interesting side note… To much cinnamon in the air makes my chest squeeze shut and I can’t breathe. Strange random allergies… I’m also allergic to Eucalyptus and Vitamin B in overpowering smelly form. O.O  All three cause me severe breathing stopage. Weird!

But in finished form the ornies and tree turned out sooooo cute!  Now it just needs some dehydrated orange slices to finish it off!

I made those ornaments about 18 years ago and I got so short of breath from them it took weeks to get the smell out the house and for me to feel better. To this day I hardly use cinnamon because of that. Although, I'm allergic to alot of things and cats are #1, so if anyone want's to kill me they should bring me to your house! lol

Oh, ps, the tree is awesome!

That is a nice sized feather tree for $10. Awesome find! I agree, orange slices are the perfect finishing touch.

I can not believe someone would NOT WANT THAT TREE! What's wrong with them...and I think GW knew it was a hot item to put that price on it - it was a good price for sure but normally they go way low...even though to us THIS WAS WAYYYY
I think you know what I mean.

Love the ornaments...what a nice Mom!!!
