This year, I decided to create my version of a Victorian Christmas tree. You may remember that last year I posted about the fun of decorating a tree with travel souvenirs, here. Then, as the holiday season drew to a close, I walked into an antique store comprised of many dealers and noticed — going from stall to stall — that there were lots of antique glass pine cone ornaments. I couldn't resist starting another collection, above!
I decided to complement the antique ornaments with new colored ones, and to alternate those colors from year to year.
If that isn't enough, I'll add colored ribbon to match the complementary color scheme and . . .
. . . strands of pearls or perhaps colored beads.
And here's the finished tree (with room for the glass pine cone collection to grow).
