Tree adopters brave the chill

IF EVER there was a day to dress Warwick's trees in a layer of warmth, yesterday was it.

Tree adopters braved icy conditions to put up their Jumpers and Jazz designs with pride, colouring the CBD with their quirky designs.

Between Lee Volk Jewellery and Etre Boutique, a tree continued to grow with decorative ornaments after designer Megan James first put the jumper on.

She is asking people to read the theme – “life is hectic, so stop and remember the simple things in life that bring you joy” – before writing down what makes them happy, on yellow placards.

Ms James will then laminate them and add them to the tree.

“I want to get everyone involved in it,” she said.

“I have three young kids and in previous Jumpers and Jazz festivals when we walked around, they said they wanted to make one.

“So I thought this was a good way to allow others to join in.”

Ms James hopes to fill the entire tree with yellow comments.

 

People's choice nominations available at Bryson's Place, Mussels, Classic Dimensions, DL Coffee, Wattle Doo Crafts, Lorraine's, Just Because, Warwick Credit Union and the art gallery.
