For the place settings, I decided to use an element from my tree. I love the feathers and buttons with a little sparkle. I wanted to have a little bit of a rustic feel, so I burned the edges of some paper (from an old book). I used it underneath the embellishments and for the place card. When I finished the first one, I thought it looked liked a turkey. Can you see it? I've got about a third of them done, so I'll post more pictures once they are all completed.

Wood-n't ya Know?
I have a secret obsession with wood. The cull lumber cart is my weakness. I can't go to Home Depot with out taking a walk through the 'woods'. My last project was so satisfying, that I've decided to make a bunch for my Etsy shop (that I've talked about opening for the last six months). I'm shooting for the end of this month! I would make a big push to get it open by Thanksgiving, but I am hosting this year and I've got a lot to get done before then.
