Just a Few Christmas Projects

Christmas will be here before you know.
and I´ve been working on a few Christmas Projects

still using the lace stash
big surprice - lol

I made up a few cones
decorated with old paper too
and sweet images

and while sorting in the studio I found these twig swings
I bough some years ago. They have just been laying there
for a project to turn up.
And here they are with paper dolls made from a vintage photo
and a little bit a lace.
I think they turned out quite cute.

another cone
with doll and a little bit of bling.

This is the latest creation.
A bell shaped cardboard ornament
(the half of it actually)
Decorated inside with bits and pieces of vintage
lace, cheeseclothes and a doily.

and with a sweet image on top of the lace,
some vintage buttons
and a piece of junk a beatiful rusty
broken jewelry.
The 'bell' decoration is hanging in a piece of old lace.

You just can´t be to early with those
Christmas Decorations
can you....

Wishing you all a wonderful day
Tina ♥♥♥

The little twig swings are gorgeous! They'll look great hanging on a Christmas tree or in the window, or across the mantlepiece, anywhere really, lol.

I love all your christmas decorations. Love the cone with the lace and vintage images. You always make everything look so tattered,torn and beautiful. I adore lace too. You always have great ideas how to use it. Love the swings too. Thanks for sharing. You really are an inspiration. Have a lovely weekend.
