I look so forward to seeing
what all my new friends have selected
to share with us for this
of white posts.
I would like to share with you
something I had made
for the Christmas Open House.
This little tree in it's own whitewashed sleigh.
For many years now,
I have been collecting the extra crystal drops that come with the chandy's we get in at the store
and those that arrive with the chandeliers I have here at home.
I also have picked up some of these drops at garage sales and flea markets.
I never really had any idea what I wanted to do with them...Just knew I liked them.
Well, It finally hit me as I was getting things ready for this Open House. I would use these wonderments to decorate a small scale tree!
Some of the crystals are really old...
Some are not real crystals at all..
Most are lovely in their own right!
All together they made a precious little treasure!
I also found some tiny tree ornaments made from glass, crystals and tiny paper roses...
added a antique battenburg lace collar as a tree skirt... the little sleigh I found this summer at a garage sale...It was a funky gold and red!
And well...as you can see it's quite charming!
And it now...
has a new home somewhere other than the store!
I only hope that it is loved and well cared for.
(So often the things that I make become a part of me somehow...you want to know that they are well loved)
Happy White Wednesday to one and all!
