Marble, Snakeskin + Mini Trees

is already trending and only growing in strength, at least in my part of the world, but have you seen snakeskin making an appearance? I just noticed it being used as a pattern on pillows and tea cosies over at and was impressed. I REALLY like it which surprised me because snake isn't usually on my radar. I also like the appearance of mini trees again or at least, smallish ones vs. the massive standard American version I grew up around. Seems a smaller tree just may be a big holiday decoration trend again for 2014 as it was last year (remember this post?). What do you think, does marble, snakeskin and mini trees do it for ya? How about pine branches in vases? Thoughts?
