Storm "Elsa" came in and froze our little corner of the world with a vengeance, but that hasn't stopped us from thinking about all of our Spring inventory!

... News from the Forge ...
Beautiful use of our "Tripods" - for Outdoor Christmas Tree Decorations!
Use all of our sizes for different heights. They are weather resistant, sturdy and just the perfect sizes for Christmas trees! These lights were simply attached with "zip ties" - EasyPeasy to put on and to take off when the season is over.
The tripods fold out as wide or as narrow as you need them for your trees, and fold up when taken down.
During the day they blend in as wonderful garden pieces and at night they shine bright as trees!
The garden Onyx towers (pictured in front with white lights) also makes a sparkling outdoor decoration! These towers can stay out all winter season!
