Favorite Things: Branch Inspired

This book is on my list of must reads.  

The movie version of "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" is one of my favorites.  It is a beautiful portrayal of a young girl's life growing up in poverty with an alcoholic father (whom she loves) and a seemingly hard mother who is desperately striving to keep bread in her childrens' mouths.  Little Francie Noland's only desire is to be educated, to "know everything in the world."  I understand her desire.  She is like a tree growing in the concrete.  It finds a way.  This is the main metaphor of the book and movie.

Why not celebrate the beauty of the bare branches of winter?  These sculptural items for your home do just that-- as well as that sweet little twig ring--!
