Art Share ~ Mary

A few days ago I started sharing the wonderful swap pieces I have received from the Handmade Christmas Ornament swap Cassandra of An Artful Adventure hosted.  Today, I share the last set I received. 

This set is from Mary of The Damsel of Distress

She wrapped everything in a vintage sewing pattern tied with a gorgeous blue ribbon and included a stunning bleached and died bottle brush tree (I just love these things!)

On top of that each ornament was slipped into a clear cellophane bag that she attached a lovely doily and ribbon to.

Ah what could be better than a Vintage Peri image that has been hand soldered?  I just love the shape, so very classic!

Her second ornament is a fabulous paper clay bird.  I just love the added touch of the blue ribbon and mini button.  Oh and by the way it is painted in a shimmery golden/cream paint that is just to die for!  I find it intriguing that she and I both made birds and they turned out so different.  Mine is HERE if you want to see how different they are.

Mary's third ornament is a rag doll Angel.  I just love the face (also painted with the wonderful shimmery gold and cream as her bird) with lots of vintage bits and pieces.

I am sad that the swap is over but so glad I took part.  Thank you Mary for such wonderful pieces I can't wait to get them on my tree!
