The tree is finally up and sparkling! One day before Santa comes he he :)
This year I put some of my soldered Christmas ornaments on the tree and really like the nostalgic look of it!
View through my Advent chandelier (as always you can enlarge all the photos if you'd like to see more details by simply clicking on them):
There is never enough sparkle at Christmas, wouldn't you agree?
A dear friend has made me the fabric skate boot in the background 2 years ago:
There is mixture of new but nostalgic, old-Vintage and self made ornaments on my tree, but I used only my silver ornaments, no red ones this year:
The reflector baubles are very old and belong to my faves for many years now:
I was so lucky to find 8 more oval shaped huge glasses which are old stock and very rare to find over here and I used them to make 4 new nostalgic ornaments for my tree, like this one:
The sweet Tilda bird in the next photo is a Christmas present from my dear friend Anita, she actually made me 5 new birds which came in a very pretty rose box, I really love the snow flakes fabric, so sweet!
Anita has also made me this gorgeous fabric Toile de Jouy heart which I decorated on my antique armoire along with a beautiful quilted heart she made for me last year. She knows how much I love Toile de Jouy and when she asked me about the size, shape etc. I would like the heart in, I asked her if she could sew beads around the heart the way I saw it on the pretty fabric hearts from Julie Collings and the sweet heart she is she fullfilled my wish and I just love it! I got even more presents from her, enchanting fabric tags, more sweet hearts, an awesome inspiration board with toile too and a wonderful fabric bunting rose garland, but I'll have post these treasures in another post.
I leave you with another view of the whole tree in all its candle light glory (click to enlarge) and once again I like to wish y'all a very merry and peaceful Christmas surrounded by your loved ones!
