A gumdrop tree repurposed into an earring tree.
Close up view.  I like how the silver looks with it.
Really, really close up view.

I got this at the Habitat Restore.  I didn't even know what it was.  My friend has since told me it is a gumdrop tree (confirmed it on Google).  But I like it better as an earring tree

Great way to repurpose!

BTW-when you're a kid and your grandmother kept the tree always full of gumdrops it wasn't bad either. lol I probably have hers buried someone with all my junk. Posted: 10:45 pm on February 1st
