The lovely Deb in Florida, USA a-l-s-o swapped a set of cookie cutter ornaments with Iris in New York State, USA, so here is the first set of cookie cutter ornaments in this series, two little Birdies in Christmas trees, and a Star Snowman (also with a birdie, if you look really close!):
Again I spot tulle, glass glitter and vintage wallpaper! But I think I can also see dictionary pages and sheet music? And I’m very curious about the glitter used on the inside of the little snowman ornament, as well as the snowman himself? I love, love, love the tattered and thorn look of him, and the tiny bird he is holding! I also wonder about the second ornie with the bird, the little star decor somehow makes me think of the ocean, and I wonder if this is a typical bird for Florida, living on the shores or something? And what are the berries(?) hung from the top of the tree? I think the red cardinal, nesting in a Christmas tree is absolutely gorgeous too!
Deb: I’m sure you’ll eventually be reading this, and I’d love to hear from you some more, since our email communication has been lacking a little with all your computer hardships…;-) Please write a comment, so we can all know a little more about your beautiful pieces!
Finally: I think this post shows that those cookie cutter ornies can be pretty darned cute too 😀 😀 😀
