Doily Christmas Tree

I made my door tree with six vintage crochet doilies. The rest came from Dollar Tree, shhhh! My husband and I were walking our dog, Bailey, to the post office this past sunday (you can see Bailey peeking out the door, under the tree above:) Half way up the street, one of my neighbors had a lawn full of goodies with a sign FREE! We stopped to take a look, and just then the owner came out and said, "take what you like, my wife didn't want the bother of a yard sale!" We stopped by on our way back, and I picked up the strips of white pompom fringe you see in my door tree, along with some thread and lace.  
I just love freebies!!!!!
My inspiration came from a photo I'd pinned and  been admiring for weeks. After researching photo credits, I found out the original photo was a shop window in Paris!

I've never been to Paris, but I think I'd love it!

  9. The doilies look so pretty! I love that your turned them into a tree. It reminds me of the paper snowflakes I used to put in the window at college. I hope you’ll link this up today (or anytime this weekend) at One Creative Weekend on OneCreativeMommy.com.
