The Fruits Of Our Labor

We've been working on our Christmas ornaments all year, so even though Christmas is still weeks away, it seems right around the corner to us. It can be summer, spring or fall on the outside, but inside, there's always a project in the works getting prepared for sale on the website.

It's a joy to work with the materials we use. The Dresden trims and paper scraps from Germany have been made by the same families for over 100 years.

We spend hours and hours sourcing the fabric trims with metallic threads and blown glass ornaments from Europe, still made in the same way as during the 19th century.

That's spun glass, below, layered with paper lace from Germany and some vintage embossed metallic papers. We can hardly wait to decorate our trees!
