...hello dear girlie's!
i hope all of your christmas's were divine!
can you believe that
in a few short hours,
it will be 2012??
i trust you have your fairy slippers and tutu's on
and your wands ready to ring in the new year?!
2012 is sure to be a year full of inspiration
here in blog land!
awhile back i was inspired by
Dore's post about her fairy theatres...
see here ~ Burlap Luxe ~
i had also been fascinated by Anita's fairy theatres on her side bar
see here ~ Castles Crowns and Cottages ~
i sooo wished for one of my very own....
so i set out collecting pretty materials
for creating a little theatre of my own
i envisioned an ethereal, "once upon a time" theatre...
i made a mirror by spray painting a piece of glass
with "mirror" spray paint by krylon
i then distressed it to look old with a little rubbing alcohol,
and etched the front of it with the words
"once upon a time" and the flourish wreath around it
i LOVE how it turned out!
i made the tiniest strand of my "fairy lights"
and fashioned a fairy out of paper clay,
dressing her in a most beauteous tutu...
is actually a secondhand jewelry box
that i transformed with my Annie Sloan paints:)
i sewed silvery, sparkle tulle
along with more of the fabric i used on my fairies tutu
for my theatre's curtains...
and here in the land of odds,
a crown is simply a must!!
i am so delighted with how it all came together
and now i have a fairy theatre of my very own:)
wouldn't it be fabulous to attend a fairy theatre convention??!!
this will be my last post of the year
so i wish all of my dear readers
a happiest new year!!
