O Christmas Tree

A Christmas Tree Wish...
in a shadow box sparkles with neutral colored ephemera. 
Ephemera (plural): paper items (posters, tickets), that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles. 

Shades of soothing cream, beige, and black along with the velvety texture of vintage wallpaper sit behind a glass frame. Can be hung on the wall, or free standing on a table.

"O Christmas Tree,  O Christmas Tree....."
A few new items are finding their way into my shop.

I am also adding a few supplies, such as paper posies, so that you can use them on your own creations. Currently Lollishops shopping cart is not working, so if you want anything from my store, just e-mail me.
