A Tiny Magic Forest...

Christmas for me is a time to play
a time to build glittery dreams...

(click photos to enlarge)

A time when a small shelf
of tiny demitasse teacups
can be turned into a magical forest...


Where bottle brush trees sprout from teacups
adorned in glittering snow....


Birds perch in nests built of gossamer threads...


A few treasured vintage pink Christmas balls
with their time worn scars
add just the right amount of charm....


Where the snow flakes dancing on the walls
are the shadows of crocheted lace
dripping from the edges on the small shelf...


A magical place
where the roses are porcelain
and last through all the seasons :-)


Tonight I will be joining

Beverly for Pink Saturday
and
 Hakan for Saturday Show Off

Come look for the magic...

Thanks for Stopping by today,

Hi Bella,
Love all the pretty Christmas pinks! I love bottlebrush trees so much! It looks like a dreamy pink fairy forest on your darling shelf. Really neat photo of the crocheted lace making snowflake shadows on the wall too! Very cool!

I was thinking of you today, attended a Victorian Christmas at an antique barn and there were so many vintage holiday things.

Hello Bella... my first visit to your blog and it is so lovely!... I found you from my friend Tracie's blog at My Petite Maison... your little winter wonderland is just beautiful, right out of a fairytale... each tiny detail is so enchanting... I love to decorate with vintage treasures... your home in the Puyallup valley sounds and looks wonderful... I love it up there, I have not been there in years, but my memories stay with me...
