Have come over all "minimal" this year & when I saw this little LED cherry tree in a local discount store, thought why not give it a try. OK, so my peg doll fairy can't perch on top, but I have tried to style it as a fairytale tree using some of my favourite vintage decorations. In the spirit of feng shui, yin and yang, whatever, there are a couple of pairs of decorations - two little doves and two little bauble people which belonged to my maternal grandmother. A man in the moon I remember from Christmas trees back in the 60s, a few stars and a couple of planet-like painted glass baubles.
My peg doll fairy wears a dress made from vintage 30s silk saved from a torn dress and antique lace. She has Tilda hair and a pair of large pink feather butterfly wings. A large sequin & beaded butterfly and dragonfly flutter through the scene, as well as a fancy candelabra confection I received a few years ago as a gift (probably by Gisela Graham). OK, maybe not exactly minimalist, but we are really enjoying this little alternative festive scene.
