I have been hard at work in the studio on a multitude of Christmas crafts. Since I am in the holiday spirit I decided to go with this weeks challenge of Christmas Corsages from Janis.
I have collected corsages for a number of years and display them at Christmas. I don't find them super often and I don't pay big bucks for them. I have a nice little collection tho.
I have some favorites that include spun heads.
I marvel at some of the unusual Christmas items that are included in these corsages. Little wreaths wired from mercury glass garland.
Teeny tiny mushroom ornaments.
Mercury glass flowers and frosted pine-cones.
Sometimes there is just a bunch of old fashioned bling going on.
I think I am attracted to their shiny colors. I think you could match just about any outfit with the rainbow of colors available. Here we have turquoise.
I also like when I find them in their original containers.
One of my favorite things about this collection is wearing these vintage works of art during the holidays. I added an "Ethel" pin to the bottom of this corsage and wore it during one of my craft shows.
If you have an idea for a future collection challenge, finish the sentence "Show me your collection of ________." I will see what I can do.
