March 2, 2008: Tree jewelry

So much is given. So little is asked.

When was the last time your favorite tree demanded anything from you? Attention? Conversation? Compliments?

Surprise that oak, that maple, that honey locust. Drape a gleaming stainless
steel necklace around your precious. Fitted on indestructible marine line,
finished with marine hardware. Lasts forever.

I'll admit to buying jewelry, to get a little bush for my wood, but this is crazy. You'd probably need 24 hour security, too.

Wonder if they know that will eventually kill the tree.

xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Mar 2 11:36 AM

They appear to be pretty loose, but eventually they would be covered over.

Gravdigr  Sunday Mar 2 11:53 AM

'Shopped. And, I think I'll pass. My old oak tree will have to be happy with a yellow ribbon.

Cloud  Sunday Mar 2 12:53 PM

the pics don't seem 'shopped to me--the reflections look right. Or do they?

Wouldn't it take an awfully long time for there to be adverse consequences to the tree? Seems like people would remove the "jewelry" before then.

I prefer the tree sweater:

The next time someone mentions that I spend too much time in the Cellar, I'll direct them to the Chicago and Seatle areas, where folks put jewelry and sweaters on their trees. My life seems much more productive now. Thanks, tree huggers.

Bling for a birch - what won't they think of next?

deek  Monday Mar 3 05:35 PM

I think I'll give my favorite tree a pearl necklace!

I pity the fool that mess with Mr. Tree!

Welcome to the Cellar, deek & Buckrogers47.

runswithknives  Tuesday Mar 4 12:46 PM

Hell, i gave my birch a pearl necklace this morning!

Shawnee123  Tuesday Mar 4 01:49 PM

Stupidest thing ever, and I am so jealous that I didn't come up with the idea!

Cloud  Tuesday Mar 4 02:01 PM

for you guys: isn't there a tree fetishist board somewhere you can go to? (squick)

richlevy  Wednesday Mar 5 08:11 PM

I wish I'd thought of it. Instead I hooked up my tree with cable. Now all it does is stand around all day watching Knots Landing.

TheMercenary  Thursday Mar 6 12:58 PM

talk about getting wood.

xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Apr 16 11:18 AM

Of course you could also, really dress it up.

Razzmatazz13  Wednesday Apr 16 11:44 AM

Bruce has just given me my next project.

I think Plastic Man is hiding in that tree.

Better get some help.

Razzmatazz13  Thursday Apr 17 12:19 AM

Nah, I'll do it like the sweater from the other link, just a ton of em all the way up the tree. Don't worry, I already have a plan.

richlevy  Thursday Apr 17 09:40 PM

Just go out and buy one of these.

Shawnee123  Friday Apr 18 09:59 AM

Buy a potholder loom and cover the tree in potholders. Oh, and I guess this is a good place to ask: is anyone else bothered by wet yarn? It's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

Tree Fae  Sunday May 11 12:59 AM

Okay, this might be an old thread but I just had to comment.
As a Tree Fae I must say we all enjoy being decorated up. This just reminded me that I haven't done anything for the trees at my new home. My other house the trees all were prettied up. I love the bracelets/necklaces and will be looking to see what I can create for my sweet gum to wear.
