Fourth Annual Festival of Trees

56 trees decorated for the holiday season–WOW! Both groups and individuals offer up a fabulous array of specially designed trees for the historic Turner Dodge House in Old Town.  I am showing a Zentangle-inspired tabletop tree with tangled star paper ornaments.
Trees are displayed (and some are for sale!) until January 3, 2016.  All sales of trees benefits the House, 100 East North Street, Lansing, Michigan.    Admission is $5.00 and kids under 12 are free.  Call 517.483.4220 for more information.

Found by a Friend...

Just sharing...

Once upon a time,
When women were birds,
There was the simple understanding 
That to sing at dawn
And to sing at dusk
Was to heal the world through joy.
The birds still remember what we have forgotten, 
That the world is meant to be celebrated.

- Terry Tempest Williams, When Women Were Birds
