I like it! And then we finally got a purpose for all those Swarovski crystals lying around. They look really nice in between the lights, especially when they move.

Yesterday I went with Lolo, Miki and her husband to see Madame Oshima in the Marais. She had invited us for tea at her workshop there. I had seen photos of her dolls online before, but wow they are amazing. Especially the portraits of her daughter (who was there as well). She makes these incredibly detailed puppets from fabric. Last time we saw her she said the larger ones take 6 months to complete! And she is so sweet as well. There's an article about her here if you want to know more: Kayuzo Oshima

&& here are a few more snaps of our wonderful tree :)

Nice ! I like the classy look of that Christmas tree, mine doesn't look that good :)

I like it too!

So jealous of your swarovski crystals. I have lame plastic looking crystally things that we put on ours. I love anything that sparkles/resembles gems.

I'm sure they are nice too ^^

The lighting makes it look so festive!

I haven't felt all that Christmassy so far this year but I'm really starting to now ...

Beautiful tree. I love the smell of a fresh pine tree for Christmas.

Now you're making me second guess my decision not to put a tree up this year. Normally I host our Christmas Eve gathering so I decorate but my sister wanted to do it this year so I decided not to do anything since I'm the only one who would see it.

I don't feel like I need one, but I can appreciate when we have :)

Wow great tree, looks like a magical place, and your friend dolls look awesome, so much talent...

Thanks :D

Aw, you gave me a bit of a Christmas feeling there. :)

I usually don't get into any kind of Christmas mood, so that was a nice change. Thanks for lovely photos :D

What on earth were you doing with dozens of Swarovski crystals just lying around your apartment? Aren't those expensive??

that's how we roll

You were just too cute to ignore in the prior Christmas tree photo from your childhood. Christmas card is on its way! I hope you like it but will warn you in advance it is a bit strange.

Oooh great! Thanks!
