A Victorian Christmas Tree ~ Merry Christmas

I decorated a Victorian Christmas tree
with ornaments I made many yrs. ago.
I added some fruit that I dried this year.

A vintage angel at the top

From the 1990's.
Some Victorian parasols I made with vintage lace,
tapestry fabric and embellishments.

Potpourri Bags
made with tapestry fabric and lace.
filled with potpourri.
This year I added some cloves and 
allspice in the lace ones,
a nice healthy scent. 

Victorian Cones filled with dried flowers.

 I painted white doilies with gold paint.
We didn't have the craft stores or
 Dollarstores, back then.

Some got squashed in packing.
They need refreshing. 

Covered styrofoam balls with fabric

In the cones, dried painted tansy.
I dipped the tansy in paint and let it drip.
Tansy grows wild in my region. 

A dried lime slice and a vintage victorian ornament.
In the Victorian era, dried fruit was hung on the tree.

A souvenir from London

Dried orange,  nice with a light shining through.

A pink grapefruit.

The bottom of the tree.

It's hard to get a full photo of the tree 
because it's in a corner.

Merry Christmas!
Stay home, stay cozy and stay well.💖
