Being Together…

…is the best gift of all.

I made this altered tin (an old Altoids box) as another addition to our constantly expanding Christmas collection.

I’ve had this sewing pattern sitting on my desk for months. The original image has the girls playing pin the tail on the donkey, and I thought their poses were just perfect for holding ornaments while they decorate the tree.

I gussied up their outfits with glitter and gave them each a beautiful ornament to hang on the tree.

I bleached, dyed, and glittered a bottle brush tree. I added ornaments of jewelry beads and vintage mercury glass beads. The little girls remind me of my sister and me when we were young.

I also made a set of gift tags to go inside.

    OMGosh! You are SO creative, Erica! This is stunning, and seriously brilliant, too! I absolutely love your bleached, dyed bottle brush tree. And having those adorable girls hang ornaments instead of pinning the tail is just genius!
