Winter twig tree

On Friday Natasha and I decided to make a winter twig tree while Zoia napped. First we gathered the twigs outside.

Then we put them into an empty wine carafe alone with a string of pearl beads that didn't make it onto the Christmas tree.  I think we needed more beads, though.  Then Natasha hung some ornaments on it.  We used old glass ornaments that it would not break my heart to lose; however, I wanted to give them a fighting chance, so the tree's home is the top of our bookshelf.

My poor jet-lagged girl staring at her finished creation.  When Papa came home, she pointed excitedly and yelled "A dih da!"  (Translation: "I did that!")
