  1. Great minds think alike! Yours is so cute - I made mine bigger because I figured I'd be too frustrated with a little one. So cute!! Might just have to make a few minis for the tree this year. :)

  2. Oh mu gosh this is so gorgeous. I love the little pearls and the hanging dohicky. Gorgeous!!!

  3. This would be pretty on the Christmas trees and I love the colors in yours. Very nice!
