Ballerinas In My Downstairs

I got started dragging out boxes and you know how that is a big mess but it is so rewarding after it's done. In some of my pictures you can see boxes I didn't get moved out of the way. But you understand. I didn't know what I was going to put on this silver  tree I found last year at an antique store. I really bought it for one of my sisters who wanted it. But she changed her mind . So I kept it.


I decided to hang my doll prom dress with all the pink
I bought this little ballerina  tu tu at my neighbors yard sale her little girl had grown out of it but I hadn't. I wanted a tu tu

I think I have showed about every angle So now need to start on the kitchen tree , however I am having second thought about a tree in my dining room because it is so  small in there and I have several girls coming over maybe I better rethink this and put the tree in my office where the rooms meet they could see it from the kitchen if they peek in my office I will make sure they look. LOL                                                             


OK better get another box of ornaments out. I have a closet downstairs under my steps full of Christmas decorations. Why do I change every year my ideas I need to just use the same deco every year and it would be so easy. I use to only use Hallmark metal ornaments now not sure where they are all at.

These 3 glass trees are downstairs in the studio. I really love them and had them upstairs in the kitchen last year . I just have so much up now they wouldn't be noticed so they can stay where they are.

      I really like this old purple glass tree topper but would never put it on any of my trees but had to keep it so I stuck it in a cubby hole shelf with other things       

    I like 3 dimensional cards and this is Anna Griffin from last year, I have several boxes of cards that I just love the paper some of them I reuse for altered art
    Here is a few pieces of my pearl handled silverware I am looking for forks I always find knives everywhere but I guess the forks are rare I need spoons to match also. I just like the vintage ones

When I had all my silver spoons out showing them these littlesilver  guys got left out of the picture




  1. I have a 3 foot silver tree and would love to find a 5 foot at a reasonable price but some of them are really dear. We had one when my children were small and I hung just bright blue balls on it. I love what you did with yours. Let me know if you ever want to sell just the care.

  2. Looks like your decorating is in full swing. I love how you incoporated other items into your ballerina tree. Very pretty!
