 Now for two more of the “collected trees ” at Chestnut Cottage!

Although my precious Westie, “Bentley Greeley” has been gone for two years, I still put up his little tree in my kitchen. This tree was positioned beside Bentley’s bowls and he often would stare up at the tree, in what seemed to me to be amazement! Each year since he passed away, it brings me comfort to have his tree in the kitchen. The tree naming “committee” at Kathryn Greeley Designs decided this tree should be “A Pampered Westie”. I thought perhaps “the angel tree” , but they won out in the end, as they thought An Angel Tree didn’t make sense to them…however, it certainly did to me!!

Bentley was such a gentleman and a very gentle dog. In my eyes, he was certainly the “World’s Best Dog”. I think each of us who have had a dog we adored would call their dog the “World’s Best Dog”!!

Bentley Greeley was certainly my “angel boy”!

Husbands, much like adored pets must have their own trees and Wells always loves doing up his little tree in the wine cellar at Chestnut Cottage!

A fun wine fairy tops the wine cellar tree…all ready to have a glass of wine.

And a wine Santa relaxes on the antique wine bottle corker.

Wells carefully made a “cork garland” for his tree. I think with all the wine cellar ornaments, we will be forced to get a larger tree next year…at which time we will certainly need more “cork garland”. That would mean we will need to drink lots of good wine in 2015!

Cheers!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the “In the Garden” tree and the “Buildings by Design” tree.

    such beautiful trees, I love Bentley’s tree, I lost my beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniel last year, and when I put his ornaments on the tree this year, it did make me smile, although miss him even more. Pets are such a treasured gift. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

    We too have had our special angel, aka most wonderful dog in the universe. I do love your special tree. And the wine tree, well that is pretty cool also. I have made ornaments out of special corks and this year made reindeer out of corks! My only tip that I learned this year, steam those corks first, then they are easy to work with! Merry Christmas and thank you for all the enjoyment you have brought us this year. It’s been a wonderful journey. xo Marlis

    Thanks you Marlis, and I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas! Glad you have a special angel in your family also!

    Yes Cindy , I cry for my Bentley almost every day. Yesterday morning I came in to my kitchen and a little ornament had fallen off Bentley’s tree. I thought that perhaps he had made a little visit overnight to make sure his tree was up. They are such treasured gifts. Merry Christmas to you and your family also Cindy!
