junkles reveal

...where did December and January go…

thought you might like to see the rest of the junkle ornaments that came in from the Queen Bees swap around the holidays…

I had shown you Linda’s lovely altered tart tin ornament earlier…the shredded text is a perfect touch don’t you think…I really have a thing for bees and bee skeps too…

Nathalie transformed a vintage lightbulb into a twinkling beaded dangle…

great touches of tinsel and “snow” really make it sparkle…

Margaret used bits from an old/vintage bracelet…the silver burst is a bit from an ornament bauble…

other delicate treasures complete this lovely piece…

Carole layered fabric and paper to make a pretty “snippet roll” as she’s named it…held onto a wooden spool with a carpet tack…it unfurls to reveal lots of loveliness…

highlighted with her special stitching…you too can make a snippet roll…she shares how to here...

and here is my thimble bell birdie ornament again…made out of old garland…beads…bird and thimble with a little jingle bell hanging inside…

it is always fun to see where creative people go with a theme…this swap was a real delight and began with inspiration from here!

*Happy Chinese New Year…The Year of the Rabbit*

*Wishing you Sparkling Happiness and Good Fortune this New Year*

  4. Really FUN stuff, Patty! Each so special in their own unique way. I’m not surprised one bit that you were inspired to start this from Jill’s blog. I love her imagination. All of the Queens did a splendid job. No wonder you’re all given royalty status! Xo

  10. Dearest Patty ~
    I so adore your snippet from Carole that I have spent quite a lot of time perusing her blog and studying her tutorial. I cannot wait to create one, getting materials lined out as I write. You continue to be such a muse to me, I think I will go add that to your link on my sidebar right now! I hope you are having a truly wonderful day! ~ Katie
