This is an altered Christmas tree i created using a tomato cage found at the flea market. i also found the doll at the flea market too. i thought the cage would make a great body, so i decided to decorate it as a tree with vintage ornaments and added the doll. then i created a halo and wings for her with rebar. Since then (this pic was in Sept.) her ornaments and lights have increased by many! she's quite a lively display.

This is beautiful! It also have given me an idea that I've
been trying to come up with. I wanted something simple to display ornaments from my tree in the '50's.
