TOPPING OUT FOR CHRISTMAS!

I am a bit "over the top" with my collection of
antique tree toppers


I usually display them on brass candlesticks with 
a string of white lights and greenery.


This year...I put them ALL in a tree to
light up a corner in a dark hallway.

I began by wrapping the branches to hold
the toppers in place



 and added my collection of Faeries


and butterflies


This obsession began with this 50s 
red tree topper stuffed with white fiber and little bells
 It belonged to my mother-in-law, June Murphy


Let me share a few more of my faves!
Look closely this blue topper has a gold scene
of Bethlehem and the Wisemen on their Camels



My BFF Shirley, gave me this antique Santa...
(and I still can't believe it because she collects
SANTAS and TOPPERS)
Look at that face!


Shirley and I were antiquing when I found
this gold harp topper...wrestling match ensured
...it's on my tree!  


This glass topper, newer in age, was a gift,
but oh how it glistens


This red topper reminds me of one we had
when I was a little girl


I wonder what this faerie is thinking?


My Christmas Bargello Wall Hanging 
makes a nice addition to the corner.



 Next time you see a beautiful tree topper...
I hope you think of me!

  1. What a unique and beautiful tree. I liked the showing on the table too.
    But I don't think you can top this display. No pun intended.
    If I don't visit again before Christmas Have a blessed and safe
    Christmas.
