Ornament Anecdote: Day 22

Goodness, can you believe how this month has flown? Just a few more days and my Show and Tell is done.

Today I am featuring one of my new-this-year ornaments. This gorgeous gem is by Patty and is her contribution to our QB5 "Junk-le Bell" swap. I think the "junk" part is supposed to be the thimble, and the rest is just amazing. Inspired! I just can't believe I own this beauty. Patty really outdid herself. She used my favorite elements-- blown ornament, shiny stuff and the whimsy of using a thimble as a bell. I need to seriously create a tree just for my most treasured hand made ornaments from artist friends. They can't be just thrown in with my general decorations.
Margaret found the "junk-le bell" idea on this blog and got us all excited about repurposing junk as ornaments.


Here are my ornaments.

They are almost done, I promise you!
