Show & Tell Friday!!! The Fairy Arch...

My sisters & I have a Christmas tradition that
we call "Sisettes". We go to Christmas tea and
exchange very girly & Christmasy gifts....
VERY FUN!
We always end up giving each other tea themed
treats and angel/fairies/ballerinas....sometimes
the line is blurred, but we try for angels!!!
(We actually end up giving each other THE SAME
thing a lot...and have to ban each other from
certain catalogues and stores!! :)



Needless to say, after all these years, we have
quite a few angels!!! So, Bee has taken to arranging
them in a garland that she hangs around her HUGE
archway!!!!





Every inch an angel.....






plus, some other treats too!





It just makes sugar plum fairies dance in your head!!!!


Dance over to
THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME

for more angelic treats!
