It's always sad to see a tree be taken down, especially one that symbolizes one of my children.  But due to damage one of our five Bradford Pear trees had to be removed.  I asked hubby if he would save some of the branches so I could use them in our home decor. 

This centerpeice for Thanksgiving will be disassembled and my candle logs will be used in another vignette for Christmas.  But I couldn't help but have one last look at how awesome a tree branch can look in a home.
