My first Christmas decoration and will not be the last *

I wanted to make a Christmas decoration for my daughter as it will the first one in her new home with her children after leaving a right sod of a partner.  

I visited my fave pound shop and bought a flat wall hanging tree made of twig and had some awfully tacky bits stuck to it... first thing was to rip them off.  Yes I forgot to take the initial picture but did manage to take one with the initial lick of white paint. 
I basically decorated it using lace, trim, ribbon, bells, old pearl necklaces, pine cones, roses, lots of pearl/diamante trinkets and bells (and they jingle/jangle too)

Now for the pics of my shabby chic Christmas decoration - hope you (and my daughter) like it as much as I do

That's it for today

Much love to you all
