This is my tree topper. The theme of my tree is VINTAGE WOMEN, feminine items such as hats, hat boxes, signs saying Chapeaux(which is French for HAT), shoes, buttons & other wonderful girlie things. The tree topper starts with a fabulous metallic blue/silver WIDE ribbon that makes a HUGE bow. The ends of this then wind down through the entire tree. Stuck in the HUGE bow is a feathered fan, a snowflake and a black velvet shoe with beautiful silk ribbon roses. Also found through out the tree are little black velvet & ribbon rose heart & square shaped pillows. One of those is also stuck up in the topper. Coming further down you will see a blue satin beaded shoe, a cameo photo of a vintage lady, a clock face & right next to it is one of my paper dolls that I got from Marietta (I was lucky enough to win one set of 3 & ordered the other 3 from her) Sorry the paper dolls are not easier to see. To see a better photo of them got HERE
Below is another one of the black velvet shoes & a close up of a button card & button ornament.
And above you can see one of the pretty glistening snowflakes, to the left of that is a large button ornament & part of a blue hat. More button cards & in the left lower part of the photo is another little velvet pillow with ribbon embroidery flowers. And the blue bead garland runs through out the tree.
The above photo shows a closer shot of the vintage cameo ornaments of the beautiful women. At the bottom of each of those ornaments is a mother of pearl button that dangles so daintily. A better photo of one of the paper dolls, the clock & the gold & pearl button ornament.
Two more paper dolls, a large section of the ribbon shinning at you & at the top of the photo is part of a hat box.
There's that blue hat on the left.
And this IS a handmade ornament(just not made by me). I bought this pattern piece paper flower when I went to the Open House at Winnie & Tallula's in Athens TX. I just loved it so I bought one LARGE one & a smaller one which is shown below. I thought of Dawn at The Feathered Nest when I saw these.
I hope you could see some of the things I tried to describe. Again, I am sorry the photos were not better. The tree is sitting in a kind of dark corner & the room was dark due to cloudy skies so..... we had to do with what we got. Be sure & go visit the other girls playing.
I HOPE YOU WILL LOOK AT THE PREVIOUS POST IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT, TO SEE SOME OF MY OTHER DECOR. ALSO, I WILL GET THOSE OTHER ITEMS I'M WORKING ON DONE SO COME BACK SOON & SEE WHAT ELSE I WILL SHARE.
ENJOY THIS BEAUTIFUL SEASON!
