Vintage PINK Victorian Christmas Ornament Set

I have been busy this week making these Victorian Christmas ornament sets. I will be putting them in my Whispering Secrets of a Primitive Past Street Shoppe today.

This ornament is made from a tinsel ring. Added to it is beaded snow flakes, ribbon roses, vintage angel scrap, and a pink glittered star,

This is a bottle brush tree with ornaments and mica snow.

A paper church adorned with glass glitter, tinsel, beads and dresden foil star.
An angel sits on top of a vintage glass ornament. Decorated with tinsel, dresden foil and glass beads.

A german glass glitter star, decorated with vintage gold trim, tinsel, and a scrap angel.

From 1870 -1910, was the golden era of Victorian Christmas ornaments. The tree glowed with hand-made shinny ornaments of many shapes. Hours were spent by the Victorian ladies of the house, maing small decorations from paper shapes, crinkled gold or silver, glorious lace and trims, spun-glass, Dresden trim, tinsel, crinkle wire, feathers, glass beads, glitter & more.These ornaments where the most exquisite ornaments ever created.

My ornaments are one-of-a-kind & hand-crafted. Each ornament not only very inventive, but elaborate. Vintage and antique materials are incorporated into each ornament, so.... the Victorian Ornament feels like an authentic, old ornament, with personality and attention to detail. All ornaments are made by me,
thus giving them the control to ensure the very best quality and craftsmanship.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Last week as I was taking my daughter to school and on the way I spotted this old piano bench in my neighbors trash. I thought to myself, " I could do a remake on that," I was still in my pajamas and was to embarrassed to stop to pick it up. When I picked up my daughter the bench was still there, so...I made her get it and put it in the back of my truck. I couldn't wait to get home and begin fixing it up.

Here are some pics of the before and after of my remake of the the little old piano bench.

I tore off the old fabric &I lightly sanded it.

The inside wood was broken so I glued it.

 I painted some old wood crack it on it and painted it white. Sanded the edges for an aged look.
I covered the seat using some old vintage Upostry fabric I had. The fabric has a PINK flower stripe design on it.

When I painted the inside I masked out the manufactures lable (Tonk Bench Mfg.Co.Chicago) so I could keep it visable. Then I lined the inside with some vintage PINK rose scented drawer paper.

I am using it as a foot rest as I sit at my computer. It's also a great place to store my printer paper.

As I always say one womans trash is anothers womans treasure.
