Textured Tuesday: Bead on a Wire

Most of the time, the yard ornaments I see 
are the usual plaster rabbits, gnomes, and deer 
available at any home supply store between 
Speedway and Hanoi. 
Every once in a while, though, I see 
something that charms me and this little tree
was one of them. Apparently, someone wound 
heavy gauge wire around a broom stick and stretched
it out to create the branches for the tree.
They then threaded various sizes and colors of 
glass beads on lighter gauge wire to attach it to the tree. 
The result is a pretty, simple ornament 
that glints in the sunlight.

Sweet! I bet that makes nice coloured shadows when the sun hits it.

Great idea for a colorful yet simple decoration that beats the heck out of pink flamingos and deer!
