|From Halloween to Christmas in Crafting|
It seems as though I can never get enough Fall. I try to slow down and savor the delicious moments that happen in the season, that first taste of something with pumpkin in it (as in the wonderful pumpkin bisque I had the other day) or the first cool snap of weather.
|Loved the color choices in this one by Sherri, I had to copy cat!|
But sometimes no matter how hard I try, I always feel like I'm galloping right past Fall and running headlong into winter and the Christmas season. With that thought in mind, how appropriate that I have a Halloween post as my last post and today, I'm posting about Christmas ornies.
|Such pretty colors, I can just see these on a white flocked tree.|
|The inspiration for our crafting get together|
I've been a fan of Nancy Maxwell James for ages. And I was also looking for a "Paris Inspired" Christmas Ornament and I thought this fit the bill perfectly. Nancy's were more monochromatic than ours turned out to be. And at one point one of us tried the fabric skirts, but I think that got tossed aside in favor of just leaving them as is.

Their skirts were just too pretty to cover up and dangles and glitter were added instead.

And VINTAGE! I dug out these great light reflectors (from the 50's) and they added the perfect background for our lovely Parisian ladies.
|I created this one, love the gold.|
