13 Days of Christmas art exchange - Days 3 and 4

Day 3 of our Christmas art exchange brought a gorgeous tussie mussie from our hostess with the mostest, Elizabeth Woodford!  E and I go back many years exchanging art through online groups and we have enjoyed meeting each other as well.  I have watched her talent just take off and now she is teaching such wonderful classes in her home state.  She has become well known for her fabulous sun prints and hand dyed fabric, so I was thrilled when I opened her package to find a beautiful christmas cone ornament that she made with vintage damask from old table cloths that she hand dyed and sun printed!  Her beautiful cone is lined with a gorgeous velvet trimmed with lace and buttons - my favorite things!  She has silver trim adorned with beautiful clear crystal beads, I love how she has sewn on the buttons in a cluster at the top.  She filled the cone with candy canes and mints.  Thank you E, it is gorgeous and I love having something that you created!!  To see more of Elizabeth's creatiions go here!!

~ Day 4 ~
Day 4 brought a wonderfully whimsical ornament by Leslie Brier!  The little cup holds the most adorable scene of vintage stickers of snowmen and bells, a gllittery bottle brush Christmas tree and the most pretty tiny glass balls and jingle bells - and it glitters beautiful when the sun hits it!  Thank you Leslie!
