This week I have had great fun making christmas decorations and some jewellery. I cant show you the jewellery as I dont seem to be able to get any more photos on this post without making others disappear, very strange! I am now high on soldering fumes and my fingers are black from the flux but is it worth it what do you all think??
It has all made me feel very christmassy and nostalgic, I remember as a child we always seemed to have snow in the winter, staying out to long till your fingers and toes froze in wet mittens and wellies then rushing in to thaw your hands out under the hot tap, the burning warmth as feeling returned in them. I love snow and now we live in the least likely place to get snow in the UK, sigh!
I used some lovely old glass buttons to adorn some of these hanging dainties with chandelier drops and mother of pearl buttons to0.
Do di do di do do dooooo!!!!!!! (My go at typing a fanfare!)
Here is the give away. This little chap has been sat on my desk watching me work all week and is now waiting to pack up his little bag of goodies and head for a new home. But I do want you to do something for him, so if you post me a comment telling me about a treasured childhood christmas memory I will get E to choose one and they will get this little boy. Look forward to hearing from you. I will tell who has one in my next post on Tuesday 11th so you have a bit of time.
