It's hard to believe that our ornament exchange is already drawing to a close. Yes, it's day 12 and that means we are opening the final gift - this one from Jackie Allison, of The Woodlands, TX.
Jackie sent her ornaments through the US Mail in this festive Christmas tin! I know that postal clerks probably thought it contained the usual Christmas goodies such as fruit cake, cookies, or Christmas candy...but... they don't know our Jackie!
Inside the Christmas tin is a beautiful satin drawstring pouch... I wonder what Jackie created for us this year? Her ornaments are always so unique, always vintage-y, and always have interesting elements!
Oh, ah, this is just darling! Jackie can find the most unique things on ebay, usually vintage, and always very very cool. Jackie has taken a tiny vintage glass salt shaker and filled it with very small glass beads...then wire wrapped a tiny frozen charlotte doll to it...
There - I think you can see it better on the white background. These tiny porcelain dolls are called frozen charlottes. This one is about an inch and a half tall. They are precious and few, very expensive, and can be very hard to come by.
Jackie created a tassel for her ornament out of a tightly twisted length of memory wire. She strung glass beads, metal beads, vintage buttons, and lovely charms as the final touch.
Jackie fashioned a hanger with the same rustic wire she used to attach the frozen charlotte. It's perfect in every way and I love it!
Thank you, Jackie, she is priceless and has already found a home on my tree, right beside her sisters that you have created for us in the past. I love my collection of your doll ornaments - thank you for sharing them with us, dear friend! Praying for you for peace, goodwill and a blessed Christmas! XOXO
