Christmas Light Box

I was mesmerized.  And then speechless.  And then jealous.

Look at this gorgeous framed masterpiece that my friend's Aunt Pam made.  She told me that years ago, she and her friends all worked on a project like this.  One that uses plywood, electric Christmas lights, and black velvet to highlight small objects.

Pam made this sparkling tree with a collection of costume jewelry from a dear relative.  Here we have earrings, buttons, brooches and bracelets artfully arranged into the most sentimental Christmas tree of all time.

I just love it and hope to make one for myself someday.  This is the epitome of beautiful and interesting.  Are you inspired too?
