Vintage Ornaments

Post by SewingSue on Fri Nov 02, 2012 4:06 am

I cleaned out a box in the spare room and this is what I came up with. I just could not bear to throw these out so re purposed them. They are from my childhood and 6 from the first yr Gary and I were married, 35 yrs ago ...so still vintage. all the rest are from the 50's and 60's

What a great idea. I am so glad you were able to make something with them instead of throwing them out.

LOVE the idea! My mother in law had one made with er favorite ornaments her kids made when they were little. It makes a great unusual and one of a kind keepsake!
