Gathered up some supplies, of course my morning cup of coffee and started taking the Valentine tree apart.
Prepared a storage box for the things that were just Valentine so they would be handy to find for the tree next year.
I love Midori ribbon and had this beautiful dark hunter green that I thought coordinated beautifully with my top hat.
Changed out the red mini-colander for this white one and put a few lucky Irish coins inside to cover the burlap.
I think this top hat is just amazing - it looks like a silk top hat but it is a lovely graphic from the Graphic's Fairy printed out on card stock with my inkjet printer - regular printing - all I did was print it out and cut around the graphic (getting rid of the areas I did not want) and then make a hole for the tree to go through.
I added this sweet little Annalee St. Paddy's Day mouse with his lucky horseshoe.
