Spring Branches

The trees have slept all winter and now their branches are beginning to sprout sweet flowers and tiny green leaves. To celebrate the coming of Spring, I created an Etsy Treasury titled Spring Branches to showcase accessories for those who hail the coming of the season. Adorn yourself with a beautiful crafted branch!

The artist who inspired this Treasury is Mai McKemy, of Woodland Belle whose Tiny Twig Hair Pins are beautiful, clever and cute! She describes her work as "innovative, nature-inspired jewelry and hair accessories" and her Branch Collection focuses "on the beauty of the tree". She makes tiny branch (and antler!) shaped bobby pins, as well as tiny terrarium necklaces and other woodland accessories! Check out all of her wonderful creations!

The trees are finally blooming here in Hippyland, Oregon ~ especially the pink flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida 'rubra' ) "America's favorite flowering Tree" according to the Arbor Day Foundation.
