Natalea of Kandeland hosted a handmade ornament swap and I was lucky enough to be able to join in…

here are the lovely ornaments I received with some of their pretty wrappings in the background…


Joy to the World stuffed heart from Natalea


 JOY stocking from Vivian


fabric tree and framed Rousing Rudolphe from Sandy


 a baker “REJOICE” shaker from Linda


   an altered doll leg from Kimberly


and a French jam jar snow globe from Jeanne

each ornament is inspiring and adds so much charm to our tree…

thank you all!!!

Patty S Altered Spoons

here are the altered spoons that I really had a great time creating for the swap using spoons bent by Mr Magpie…feather wings…golden German Flimmers and some rhinestone bling along with several kinds of glitter and a favorite word of mine…

thanks to my art pal Fran Podlesney for sharing her die cut machine I just happened to have the perfect frills to use as tags on my tuille wrapped ornaments…
