It looks like what I am looking for but it says in the description it has green and brown branches. I thought German Twig Trees had all brown branches. Does anyone out there use this kind of tree at Christmas? Do you know of a better site to purchase these trees from maybe? The 5 foot tree is $59.99 and the 6 foot tree is $84.99. I am wanting one of each size. This was the most reasonably priced site I found for these trees. My vision is to adorn my trees with the brown cord lights, popcorn and berry garland (which is another item I am searching for at a discount price) and dried fruits (again another needed item).
Let me know what you think about this tree and if you have any suggestions for where I might look further. I believe the shipping was free on this site but I will look that over better if I order from there.
Have a fabulous day everyone and I am praying that all my blogging friends are safe after all the storms that have been hitting everywhere.
*** I FORGOT TO ADD THAT I WILL BE HANGING MY CINNAMON ICICLES THAT I BOTH WON AND PURCHASED FROM MELISSA AT FARM FIELD PRIMITIVE GOODS ON MY TREE AS WELL. THEY ARE FABULOUS!!

Well a few weeks back I won a giveaway from Linda at http://parkersparadise.blogspot.com/. My prize was to be some past issues of Country Sampler Magazine. Linda asked me if I was a subscriber to the magazine and since I was, she adjusted my winnings. That was the most thoughtful gesture ever. Linda I need to apologize for this picture though. My camera is not working so I chopped one of the pictures from your blog to show my cinnamon corn bowl fillers. You really need to see them in person to take in all the detail of them. I also received a cookbook. Sorry no picture of it. I have an addiction to cookbooks and this one was fabulous. I love down home recipes and this cookbook fit the bill. Thank you Linda for hosting this giveaway and for drawing my name.
On to my next win. Melissa from http://farmfieldprimitives.blogspot.com/, hosted this next giveaway and she had two prizes to win. I was the lucky recipient of this fabulous prize.
Again I had to borrow this picture from Melissa's site. I hope no one minds me doing this. I have never owned a prim Santa and this little guy is just so precious. I'm anxious to add him to my Christmas decor this year. The second gift I received were these cinnamon icicles to hang on my tree. I was so impressed with them that I had to order three more sets from Melissa from her selling blog http://www.farmfieldprimitivegoods.blogspot.com/.
I want to thank both of these ladies for being so generous with their talents and their giving. Please stop and visit both of their blogs and sign on to be followers if you aren't already. They both have such wonderful things to write about and I know you will be glad you did.
Blessings to all,
