More about my little Tatting Tree

Thank you so much for all the nice things said about my little tree.

Would you believe that I was just watching Gardener's World on the BBC tonight, and they were talking about the history of the Christmas tree, real and artificial.

What did I see but my tree! It was one of the early artificial trees, made in the 1930's from dyed Goose feathers. I always thought they were Chicken feathers. So now I know.

Confirmation of it's age makes me feel even worse as it loses more of it's feathers and becomes even more 'tatty'!
