Ornament #3 – Vintage Snowflakes {30 Days of Christmas Ornaments}

30 Days Christmas OrnamentsOrnament #3 – 01cb3f254bdd17258843a8badc124f3b436103e76bVintage Snowflakes

With this ornament, I was able to re-purpose a couple of vintage rose boughs as well as some tiny pearl Christmas decorations and tinsel.  I also raided my stash of dried roses.  I spotted the snowflakes at my local Dollar store and loved them just the way they were, but knew I wanted to jazz them up for this project.

Using my trusty glue gun, I just arranged my materials over 5 snowflakes and here’s the result.  They make me think of a vintage English Christmas.  Not sure why ;-).

I first discovered Fairy Gardens on Pinterest.  (In fact, I have a board dedicated to Fairy Gardens)  I love how tiny everything is and the whimsy associated with creating a make believe Fairy Garden Yarn Basketnook in the corner of the garden.  I love doll houses and all things miniature, so it’s no surprise that I’m really taken with these gardens.  Eek! It’s a yarn basket made from a walnut shell.   —->

When you finish this Fairy Garden thing, can I sit next to the door and wait for the fairies to come out?  I won’t bother anything, I’ll just sit and wait.  I’ve never seen a fairy before.  Is it kind of like a butterfly?  Or a hummingbird?  I’m so excited, I can’t wait.

    It used to be peppermint ice cream because the holidays was they only time it was available until I learned Leatherbee’s has it year round… Next best thing is probably my party mix,
    because I only make it at the holidays.

  8. Kathy Ryan says:

    PS… I like the vintage snowflake ornaments a lot! Probably show my friend who does a Shriner’s Christmas tree each year – I think she would have a winner with a bunch of these.

      Wow that sounds really good. Many years ago, my family and I were in London at Christmas time and bought chestnuts from a street vendor who was cooking them in foil in a metal bin. They were really good!

I look forward to your thoughts
