Victorian Christmas Ornaments

I recently saw a video that Martha Stewart did showing a shop who made Victorian Christmas Ornaments. It inspired me to make a few of my own.




I used vintage mercury glass ornaments, some vintage scrap, German scrap. Some vintage trims. vintage lace. etc. I had intended on putting these in my Etsy shop but time ran out. Maybe next year.
FYI the ornaments in that shop Martha featured went between $119.00 to $600.00 each.
Can you believe that!!!!!!
 She used all vintage or antique pieces.
Mine will be more like $20.00 LOL

Lovely. The hot air balloons are so cool. The girl with the red skirt is making me cold with her skirt up in the air like that. So drafty. So bawdy.

Happy holidays my friend and remember to sleep!

Lynn, these are exquisite! I gasped when I saw them - what beautiful creations!

Jann said...

These are just gorgeous, Lynn! Oh, and I have your darling ornament on my tree--my hubby and I just trimmed the tree last night--so late--he looked at your ornament and said, "That's really nice!" That's a real compliment coming from a man who quietly tolerates the mess I make when I'm creating art stuff!
