November Studio Time


I am home from a recent trip to Chicago
to see family
It was cold in Chicago
but
we had a great time
eating, antiquing, sharing

I am back in the studio
creating away
For some reason, 
I felt that I had to create these ornaments yesterday
-only to find out that I had donated
my mica flakes & glitter-
but a search in my supplies
turned up just enough 
to finish these ornaments

Using vintage French tins
on these one of a kind ornaments

These sweet vintage cross pins
I found while antiquing in Chicago 
I bought a small bag of them for my shop.
I think they would look nice on a fabric book!

I will be sending one to my Aunt,
who lost her home in the Camp Fire in California.
We as a family are gathering family photos for her.
She lost everything. 
Where do you begin when this happens?

Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Your Christmas ornaments are pure delight Rhonda and fun to create. Love of your medals and French cards. All soooo beautiful.
    So terribly sad for your aunt. I know this as several of our friends have lost their homes in the same way here in Australia.
    It's hard to comprehend the extent of these horrific fires over in your country! Heartbreaking!
    The gift of giving to help them back on their feet is the best we can do especially when it costs us nothing.

  4. Good morning dearest Rhonda! I'm glad you had a lovely trip to Chicago; it's cold out there, isn't it! Here in Minneapolis, we've had a pretty cold November so far, but just a dusting of snow. I can't believe the holidays are near, but gorgeous ornaments like yours are starting to make the holiday fun of decorating a reality! Your work is admirable, so full of SOUL. These are amazing!
