Vintage Christmas

We’ve had housefuls of company this year, so I’ve had little time to make anything myself, but I always enjoy getting little vintage treasures out of their storage boxes. This is a nativity scene made from a coconut and other nuts that I found in a bucket in the basement of an old house during an estate auction.

My grandmother had lots of craft parties with her friends, especially around the holidays when they made ornaments from things like wishbones and egg shells. But my favorite is this angel wall hanging that inspires me in my studio.

  1. Christmas is over, but it’s still my favorite holiday ever. Love your little nativity scene – especially the sheep! Is is made of rick rack? Happy New Year, my friend – see you soon!

  2. Love the coconut manger scene and what treasured memories you have of your grandmother. I hope that is what my grandchildren will remember about me.

  3. Merry Christmas! My Christmas day started with an early morning plane ride and reading about you in the Quilting Arts magazine! Great start to a day! Have a wonderful holiday and fantastic New YEar!
