HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR FEATHER TREE
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
54" Alpine Feather Tree - 7 rows - Made with Stiff Feathers
Feather trees should be stored in a closet or climate controlled location, not in a basement or attic.
Heat will burst the berries, and dampness will damage the tree.
Cover with a pillow case or paper bag with cedar blocks, rather than storing in an airtight container.
Display in indirect sunlight, so not to fade the paper wrapping on the trunk.
With proper care, your feather tree will last for years and years.
Darryl Moland began his design career as a graphic designer at Southern Living magazine. He then applied his creativity to art direction at several magazines, including Cooking Light and Atlanta. Darryl—an avid collector of ornaments and props—put his life experiences and imagination to work by creating a blog at www.thedecoratedtree.blogspot.com which included original photography of the trees he created which illustrate stories relating to his life.
The popularity of the blog lead to The Decorated Tree: Celebrating the Seasons—a book infused with beautiful decor and soulful memories of the people who taught him that holiday magic can be a part of every season. The book is holiday fantasy intertwined with the rich symbolism of nature. A time-honored Yuletide ritual has become a modern tradition any time of year.
This large 12" x 12" 144-page, hardbound and dust-jacketed coffee table book contains the best of the blog's informative stories. Accompanied by 183 inspiring full-color images, this book will become your decorating resource for every holiday, every year. Order yours today at www.blurb.com/b/3433522-the-decorated-tree.
