Christmas Art Journal

January 12, 2015

Here are a few more pages of my Christmas Art Journal that I finished over the holiday break.
I enjoy decorating with handmade and vintage ornaments.  This one that I created here, was one that was saved from the trash after my Grandma had passed away years ago.
My twin sister and I have to laugh, as we had told our dad when he was going through things to please set aside anything that he thought we might like.  Sherri and I got there a little later, and he had already started putting old boxes of "stuff" out at the curb for the garbage truck.
 In amongst all the trash we found vintage Christmas treasures that we grabbed up and took home. That day we rescued several small boxes of vintage ornaments... one being this one.  One of my favorites.  Each year, I decorate for Christmas I pull out these vintage Christmas ornaments and remember them on Grandma's tree and how they almost ended up in the trash.

Wishing you a wonderful day.
