Unconventional Christmas Decorations...30 second Pointe Shoe Bling

I'm leaning towards less conventional Christmas decorations these days.
Santas been done to death here, and frankly in this house, we all know that he's a bus driver in Norway. True story. I've seen it on Pinterest ;-)
So we're glittering Reindeer silhouettes, and making miniature cameo ornaments (that's those ladies in profile, not the machine thingo), and finding other ways to bling up Chez Mimi.
Speaking of that time waster of all time wasters, Pinterest....this idea popped up there before I was addicted. You know, when we all first started Pinteresting, and we kidded ourselves we could walk away from the screen whenever we wanted?
Even back then, I knew it was a dead certainty for this household as we have thrice worn Pointe and Demi Pointe shoes up to the wahoo as they say.
Diamante neckwear was obtained from an Asian man in the centre of the local shopparama for three lousy dollars well over a year ago. But despite having the shoettes, and the bling, I just haven't found time to stitch the darned things decoratively where they're meant to go.
Tonight I just dragged it all out, wrapped both vintage and new rhinestones around thrice worn pointe shoes, and popped them under an upturned Hurricane Lamp.
I'm rather chuffed.
I think it might stay there well beyond the Silly Season.
What do you think?

  2. Doesn't it just Nanna Chel :) As lovers of all things 'Ballet', it's more of a reflection of what our home should display at this time of the year too. And let's not forget the Christmas Ballet of all Christmas Ballets....The Nutcracker...that's on our must watch list for the Festive season as well. Thanks for your
