Santa Loves the Ballet



I worked some Christmas magic on this white cabinet that is in the entry way.  The other two walls in the entry way are decorated in a Nutcracker theme...but, sadly... I've used all my Nutcrackers in other vignettes.    So....I will have to make do with what I already have!

I hung some ballet stockings on the front of the cabinet....This stocking is pretty large....
but the other two....

are much smaller!

I have had this lighted rag garland on the cabinet for quite awhile and I still love it ....so, all I did was add a ....

rose garland and some ballet slippers....
and a bunch of dried babies breath.
 Since the ballerina's get a bouquet of roses after the performance, I placed some dried roses on the cabinet shelves.
I decorated one of the shelves with this vintage ballerina that belonged to my mother...she stored small earrings in it.

On the other shelf I put this vintage lidded earring holder that also belonged to my mother.

 I thought some musical instruments from the orchestra would make a nice addition to the vignette.



And H was sweet enough to give them a fresh coat of cream paint!

Here is a photo of the wall across from the cabinet.   To see more click  .......http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2013/11/nutcracker-christmas-tree.html

This vignette is also in the entry way.....Click here to view more of this post......http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2013/11/nutcracker-ballet.html


                                                           

                                                               Merry Christmas!
