Festival of Trees

Th 6th Annual Festival of Trees took place today at a local interpretation centre. This was the first time I was able to attend. There were lots of trees and a few gingerbread houses and several Christmas quilts too. Thought I would share some of my favourites. The trees are voted on and it'll be interesting to see which ones wins!

This was my favourite! It was completely trimmed with old vintage Christmas cards that my Aunt  Mildred and Uncle Harry had received in the early to mid 1900s.

This one was from my paternal grandparents! Love it! Very sentimental!

This was a nice one, all hand made country ornaments!


Wouldn't be Christmas without the Grinch! Loved this one!

 Log Cabin quilt and teddy bear tree

This one was done by the Highschool. 
Black tree with lots of gold trimmings, the school colours!

This was another favourite for me. It was done by my cousin and his wife. 
He's a plumber! Check out his ornaments!

Valve handles! Love it!

4H Tree

 This one was all done with natural trimmings. Rose hips, pine cones, dried flowers, vines. 
It was really lovely!

A couple more quilts! 

And a couple gingerbread houses!
