Vintage Tree Topper Swap

I think some of you may have participated in the vintage tree topper swap by Donna at Under the Redroof. I'm sure everyone had a great time creating, well I sure did. My swap partner was Priscilla from Sweet Remembrance .Here's what I received from her. Thank you so much Priscilla, I love it! It's been snowing pink foam around here eversince I opened the package,She had it beautifully wrapped and covered in it :) She made this gorgeous topper covered in vintage paper, trimmed it with doyley and sprinkled a whole lot of girly charm onto it.I'm sure the pictures speak for themselves, it's very pretty! As I don't celebrate Christmas, I don't have a Christmas tree.However, I've turned this topper into a little tree of it's own .Perched it on a wooden stand and voila what do you know, it's turned into my very own Wish Tree.It now stands tall on top of my creative shelf
To see what I made for Priscilla, hop on to FleaMarketQueen.
Till next time , Much Blogging Love,

I don't know why the French get ALL the credit. You Australians are so very romantic! And, you Adla are so skillfully shabby chic in every way.

Hi Adla! I LOVE your Wish Tree! Not only is it adorable, but the idea of a "Wish Tree" is really inspiring to me. I don't really celebrate Christmas either. Not in the literal sense anyways but I love the idea of being able to keep some of my family traditions but adapting them to my personal beliefs. A Wish Tree, what a delightful idea! No matter which holidays we may be celebrating this time of year, we are all celebrating peace and love. So, I wish you much Peace and Love this holiday season Adla!

MelsRosePlace said...

Sweet Remembrance said...

Thanks Adla, you were a wonderful swap partner.
Happy New Year...
Priscilla

Missing you

Ahhhh....very lovely. I also love the tree you made for Priscilla. I think I did a good job matching the two of you even if I do say so myself!
