*The Christmas Collection*

As you probably have guessed I have been working
really hard on the Christmas Collection.
And I finally managed to get the photos taken too.
So - here´s what I have been working on....

paper crackers
old paper, fabric, lace, black string and buttons

old cloth pins and wooden spools
decorated with lace and sweet french *NOEL* ribbon

tiny cones
with a little touch of silver glitter

decorated bottles

with old curtain clips
and sweet vintage children

some lace and old paper too

more vintage children
scalloped edges
added to a string

to become this vintage inspired Christmas Garland.
coming to a shop near you very soon.
now there only to wish you....
wait a minut
what are you doing in her....
you are not supposed to be in here
you don´t even have any arms and legs...

what do you say.... hmmmm
okay - okay
I got it..
She came in here to tell me she didn´t had any arms and legs
and she so wanted some
and she had to come here to tell me
becourse I´m in here all the time - hmmm
better go make those arms and legs
and a boby too
I would guess...
have a beautiful day

Everything looks sooooo wonderful Tina, except that I feel sorry for the poor bear! But I know he will be much happier when he is complete and he will be beautiful!

Beautiful creations, what a clever idea using the curtain clips to hold the photos on the bottles!!

Lynn said...

Ohhhhh your poor little bear with the cute little face, I hope Tina has some time to make the rest of you, she has just been so busy creating sweet little things for her shop, but they are soooooo beautiful and very inspiring :)

You make such beautiful things! I get blue to. When I feel blue I borrow one of my grandkids for the day. I get my most enjoyment from the babies. My daughter lives next door so that makes it easier. You can always email me if you need to. I am BiPolar and the blues do come.
