Wow, all those little fill-in ornaments make a huge difference.
Good job!


Looks like your Magpie Ethel magic did wonders for this light up Christmas tree! Love how you give broken or hurt vintage things a second life.
This tree gets to shine for another Christmas now :-)

Junque Magnet

OH my that is a beauty! I would have to have that out every day.Enjoy.


It's all sparkly and happy now - love it!

Musings from Kim K.

What a beautiful transformation!! Your Magpie Ethel magic did it again!


You did a terrific job on it!

Mary Ann

Oh, how pretty!


You did it again!! That is an amazing transformation!! That tree is gorgeous.

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

You definitely brought that tree back to life! It looks spectacular, and it makes me want to just skip decorating for Thanksgiving, and moving right on to the main event! Oh, and good luck at your show this weekend!

Maria (Magia Mia)

You are a gifted magician.....:)


Oh, I'm glad you gave it more happy days!


Oh fabulosity of vintage wonderfulness! I totally love it! I'm so glad you repaired it instead of cannibalizing it.


It turned out gorgeous Laurie!! Enjoy it!


Into Vintage

Wow!! (I say that a lot here!) Such an improvement. Another item on your vintage crafting resume!


Oh my goodness.....Magic! I love it. Please tell me it is something we can recreate too......It belongs in a gilded frame. Lovely...I have to pin it....smiles...Renee My though on these sales is you need a nifty Mending-esque apron! You know so that I can join you sort of! I know you probably have plenty but I could gussy up a cute holiday one just for you...no charge!


OMG, That is Awesome!!! Good job on rescuing a fantastic vintage treasure!


Wowza, it turned out perfect! Who doesn't love sparkly stuff!

Lisa W.

You did a wonerful job ( as always ! ) Love it !

Tammy Soave

Oh I am SO glad you saved it! It is to die for! I'll bet it is even better now than it was orignal. I may have to try to dupilicate a modern version of this! Love, love, love it that much!
