Last week in my newsletter I asked for your help in identifying new colors to create my vintage style bottle brush Christmas trees in to list in my shop. I added 7 new colors in response to the great ideas I received:

  • Teal/Turquoise
  • Wedgewood/Country Blue
  • Holly Berry Red
  • Holiday Silver
  • Yukon Gold (was an interesting experiment…not sure if I will list these or not)
  • Lavender/Hydrangea
  • Deep Royal Purple
And I have five new colors of my own:
  • Olive Green 
  • Cantaloupe (one set only)
  • Fuchsia Wine
  • Perfect Pink
  • Bubblegum Pink

Thanks so much everyone for your help with the new colors!! I really appreciate it. I also promised to draw one winner and send them a set of trees in the color they recommended. And the winner is………………………………


I would love to see red Bottle brush trees, I just Love them!!!  They remind me of Christmas's past with my Grandparents!!!
Happy Holidays!
