Switzy Junk


Margaret's Junkle Bell is literally a jewel for my Christmas tree, being made from broken jewelry findings. Really, it's pretty enough to wear as a pendant on a chain (hmmmm....) And as if her ornament wasn't enough, Margaret also included a gorgeous altered French postcard (love her ruffled crepe paper trim!), German scrap (not pictured) and these metal wings she
white washed and accented with gold paint.
I think she used the same kind of wings on her flying cutlery. So much beautiful treasure to arrive just after the rush of the Christmas holidays!

Those look like year around treasures to me. It would be a shame to box them up for most of the year!

Definitely not just for Christmas! I love that ruffle, so very vintage!

Bell is so sweet, what a wonderful use of broken things.
