Miniature Christmas Tree

I was hoping to post the tree inside my first room box but because I was working with my first miniature porcelain doll, I was not able to finish the room although I am still working on it. I have hope that I will be able to post the room's picture before Christmas but I am not sure. I don't want to rush my self as I am enjoying making this room so very much .Yesterday I had all the wood frames cut on my table saw and today is painting day. I still have to run all the electric wiring and finish making my sconces then I will be ready to set up.
Here is the tree. I bought this tree plain and in a natural color. I dyed few times to get to the color I wanted. The color was very important to me. I did not want to look like a artificial tree like but rather a *real* tree. It is a large tree also measuring 8" total with the ornament. I wanted to be this big because my room has high ceilings ( 11 1/2" tall) and any other size would look silly.I have to make the skirt too.... lots to do on real and mini life!*grin*

All the ornaments are hand made. The tiny details are of course the most important ones. The painted ornaments are the most favorite among the children... they seems fascinated specially at night when one is allowed to turn on the 36 colors mini lights.
I should be posting my first doll soon. She is all ready just patiently sitting and waiting for her pictures. *smiles*
