...my fairytale theatre

...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
and creativity
here in blog land!

awhile back i was inspired by
Dore's post about her fairy theatres...

i had also been fascinated by Anita's fairy theatres on her side bar

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...

the theatre
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!!

...an angel at my christmas table

...hello dear hearts!

it will be christmas eve

this week,
 i have been preparing a most elegant table,
for my little family's christmas week...

this angel resides at our table this year...
i can almost hear her sing:


see her tiny crystal crown?!

and her beautiful silver glittered wings??

she was a christmas gift from my dear mia...
the color of her skirt
matched my chair bows...

~ serendipity ~

she was meant to be here!

beautiful paperwhites and white tulips in bloom...

a "snowflake" themed table
full of delights...

it is my most favorite table
i have put together at christmas time...

i adore the crochet snowflake tablecloth
given to me long ago from my mom...

all of my pretties have been lovingly placed
at each individual place setting...

using the best of what i have
for this most joyous time of year

these are my favorite bavarian dishes
with ruffled, silver edges...

white linen napkins with a rose pattern

and for each place setting ~
i made one of these mary plaques
and dusted them with clear glass glitter...

this year,
my daughter took a "woods" class
and made me a tool box!

i painted it with my annie sloan paint
and added a stenciled wreath to each side

then i planted my flower bulbs in it...

she received an A+ for this project
from her teacher,
and a giant hug from me:)

a treasure for years to come...

lovely silk wrapped candles

and the most loveliest shade of blue crystal glasses
for a cup of christmas cheer!

and these beautifully etched glasses
for sparkling water...

i sprinkled the entire table with these diamond gems
for even more glam!
(you know how i adore more sparkle!)

and even adorned our chairs
with these fabulous bows...

 also wrapping white felt snowflake garlands
around the tops...

and added a twinkling white star...

i wanted luxury,
so each chair has a faux fur pillow
added to them...

i found them at target
and removed 2/3rds of their stuffing
now they are "just right"


 crochet snowflakes dangle from the chandelier...

and look lovely ~

as well as at the slider door windows...
this snowflake bunting flutters all around
when the heater turns on

~ magical ~

i have so enjoyed putting this table together
for my beloveds this year

and anticipate the moments we create together
all weekend long,
as we celebrate the birth of our Lord...

Happy Birthday Jesus!!

what a celebration it will be:)

...oh christmas tree ~ oh christmas tree ~ how lovely are your branches!

...hello, hello dear ones!!

i'm taking a short break from making
my christmas "soul cakes"
to share,  my snow dusted tree this year...

as i have lots o' pictures
i won't be saying much
mostly just sharing a few links...

i sooo wanted a flocked tree this year
but most of the trees out there were
#1 ~ too big and tooo large
and #2 ~ ahh, $300 is a bit much!

my christmas trees are different
each and every year.
i figure,
we only have so many christmases in our lifetime,
so why make every tree the same year after year??!

so, i set out to find some white tree flocking...
i wanted a snow dusted look.
and that is exactly what i got!
here is where i found my tree flocking

don't be intimidated!!
YOU can do this too!

i used 1 pound of white bonding flock
and two Martha Stewart glitter jars of iridescent glitter...

LOVE how it turned out!!

now, for the embellishing...

a rhinestone pretty from Michelle

to which i added the most exquisite lace ruffle around...
it has tiny beads and sequins and silver threads
so ethereal

and a paper ruffle frill to this one...
(also from petite michelle louise)

and this one...


 ~ sigh ~


these next few pretties are from Rhonda
of A Little Bit French at
 ~ Paris Gal 56 ~

all three of us kindred hearts
were drawn to this lovely image this year...


so pretty hanging on the branches....


doves that carry iridescent bubbles of wishes...




vintage blue velvet flower lights.
i was sad they didn't fit in the light strand sockets on this tree
but they are still very blu-eautiful...



i'm blamin' those "drunken sour cherries"
 in the "soul cakes"!!


tiny glass bells
as one can never
 have too many sets of angel wings
 in this wonderful life:)


satin covered ones...

there are delicate strands of angel hair on my tree too.
did you know that it is actually spun glass??
i never realized that until this year!!


and  Mother Mary with baby Jesus...


the reason for the season in our home

and that is my snow dusted christmas tree!


thanks for dropping by!
i hope you are having lots of merriement in your hearts!

i really must get back to making those cakes:)
