White Wednesday

One of my most favorite things to do to prepare for the Christmas Season is to make my own ornaments.


There are so many beautiful religious images that truly speak to my soul.

Painted metal tags and glitter ....

...are all one needs to create these beauties.

Hand rolled clay.....

....glitter and beads....

...and some vintage holy medals....

....gently pressed into the clay.....

...leave a soulful imprint.

Metal bezels...

...painted creamy white.....

...and adorned with Holy images....
(sold)

...and German Glass glitter...

...add a lovely sparkle to the tree.




Plain white coasters....

....adorned with images of statuary I photographed at my beloved seaside burial ground...

.....a little glitter.....

...a little sparkle....

.....creamy pearl beads....

...and vintage seam binding.....

....make even the simplest of ornaments....


...look just heavenly!"



Found objects....

...like old watch cases....
(O Marie is sold)

...and vintage rhinestone brooches...
(rhinestone one is sold)
...all send a blessed message of love and hope this Christmas Season.
(some....soon for sale in my ETSY shop)


Happy White Wednesday mes amies!
I'm heading over to Kathleen's Faded Charm Cottage for where I am sure I will find an inspirational offering of white lovelies!

Your previous WW was gorgeous as well with your beautiful mantle decor. I know if I ever came over, I would never be able to sit down because I would be going from one thing to the next asking where you got this and that.
    I love your special touch. It speaks to me!
    Thank you dear friend for sharing your beautiful life.
