Each bell has the most charming ring to them. Each is handpainted with a few shamrocks.
I found a vintage linen table topper amongst my linens.
I began to add the ornaments. Each bell is so graceful in itself that I didn't want to detract from them by adding additional decorations to the tree.
Of course, I couldn't leave the tree with all that fine china sitting precariously on a chair, so I moved her.
Here, she holds court on the majestic marble topped sewing base table(yet, another blog) in the Great Room.
At night, when lit, the tree sends forth the glow of ancestors long ago.
