Putting on the Glitz.....

The other night we went to David Jones, a department store in town that has the most magical Christmas window display.
My camera died on my me but I managed to get these two photos. The boys were mesmerized by the moving puppets, the music and beautiful christmas scenes.



This is a handmade ornament that I made last night that is heading out to Daisy Lupin in the UK, as part of the society of secret fairies handmade christmas swap.
I covered a boxboard square with vintage piano music and a bird image, some tiny vintage paper flowers, a sheer ribbon and lots of glitter. I think I overdid the glitter haha. The back is also covered, pale blue rose paper and an image of snow angels.
I hope she likes it!

Im also getting ready a parcel to send to the lovely Lisa-Gabrielle my partner for the Vintage christmas swap - Ive got a couple of cute retro things which is just her style and on saturday Im heading out to Rozelle Flea Market as I need one more thing - dont you just love thrifting?!!! any excuse to thrift!
