...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!!

  12. I saw you on 2805 Potpourri Friday and the photo just drew me here. I LOVE your blog. I am mesmerized by it. I love white and ethereal and bright and beautiful. This blog is all of that. I signed up to be a follower and I am going to sign up for your blog to be emailed to me. I too have fairies in my life and in January I will be introducing them. I am a new blogger of only 6 weeks and I'm trying to decide on my focus. Thankyou for such a great blog. Love it!

  13. I have to say this is just absolutely darling. I love every little detail and I can't even pick a favorite part, just so creative. I have to tell you I picked up a simple Santos ornament at Pottery Barn and I can not wait to pretty it up like I have seen you do with your dolls. Have a happy New Year.

  23. Hi dear! Just to say I absolutely looove your space and all your creations. I follow everything here already for a long time and I find it very beautiful and delicate, but I was not commenting a lot lately because my time became very, very short because of a serious illness of a beloved person in my family. I even mentioned you in two posts on my blog. Take this opportunity to wish you and your dear family a wonderful New Year! May your New Year can be a source of love and blessings to you and all yours! And thank you so much for all the wonderful inspirations you share with all of us! Thousand kisses,dear, Rachel :)))

    If you want to see the links I've mentionated you, here they are:



  24. This is truley beautiful i have a old little cabinet in my garden shed which would be perfect for something like this. Would there be a possibility of one day there being a tutorial of how you transform a box into a little theater xxx
