Hi guys! These are a few of the ornaments I have been working on lately.
This one has a vintage rhinestone jewelry center.
A vintage earring...
Some have vintage and antique prayer card images..this one with vintage mercury glass beads
These started a few years ago with ornaments I made with a stash of vintage tincan lids I ran across at an estate sale. I ran out of the old tin so I started using vintage tin and aluminum tart tins.
This one has a head I molded from paperclay..I used on old doll head to make a mold.
I just snip and hammer and fold and snip some more and layer until it is something I like. This one has an added vintage chandelier prism.
I also use vintage brass lighting pieces, but my supply of those is waning..I will have to find a "new" vintage supply.
The rhinestone accents are new... everything else is vintage.
I am inspired by Catholic altar pieces and antique South west tin. I'm getting ready for an antique show this weekend and getting ready to paint walls, ceiling and trim and refloor our living room, dining room..hall..and kitchen. I am tired already and haven't started yet!When I get going I will have some pix.Stop again! Til next time! Julia
Hi! I am a former SD girl..now a TN woman. I have a great family..wonderful husband, 2 sons, 2 daughters and a grandson. I have 2 Etsy shops, https://hopeandjoyhome.etsy.com is the shop I sell vintage things in and https://hopeandjoystudios.etsy.com is the shop I sell handmade in. I also help my husband with his Etsy shop https://theindustrialfarmer.etsy.com . I love to create! I like to garden but my attention generally wanes about July and it is every man for himself. I am in the process of turning my daughter's former bedroom into my studio and will be posting pics. I love to laugh..drink coffee and eat chocolate..more to come!
