Advent preparations

Just a quick preview of some of the things I am working on for my shop, all the while I should be decorating:

Linen heart with vintage lace and an image transfer (from DigitalAntiques on Etsy) on unbleached cotton - oh, not to forget, a vintage mother of pearl button

image transfers (from piddix on Etsy) on large! vintage chandelier teardrops
These are an amazing 8 cm (just over 3 inches)! I think they are too heavy for jewelry, but would look great on a wreath or in a bowl of spruce branches and Christmas ornaments...

Back to the shop - now where did I put my icicles???

All these creations for Advent are so cute Renate. Love them all.
Concerning the vintage chandelier teardrops, you may put them as a pendant in a necklace if you don't sell them ;-)

Romizous.

I love the crystals. Wish I could see your shop. Yes I'm going to do a poetry piece on my days off. My sister is coming to visit and has inspired me!!

What wonderful ornaments! They are so enchanting. And what a great idea to use the chandelier pieces.

Hello Renate
How did I miss this post?? Oh my goodness your holiday pieces are gorgeous!! I love the sweet little heart with the image transfer and the chandelier crystals are beautiful. If they don't all sell (which I KNOW they will)...maybe you could add them to your Etsy shop! How did the icicle arranging go?
