Well hello to you all. From what I have seen on the news, some of you have been snowed in! Wow, winter has come down hard on my friends in the US. With all that snow in North-America in mind, I hesitated whether today was the right day to post this, since I am showing off even more snowflakes. But then again, these are a different kind of snowflakes.
Let me begin with a little disclaimer. These gorgeous snowflakes are made by hand. Yes they are, these tatted lace Christmas ornaments are totally homemade.
Just not by me
I could never, ever do this.
I just don’t have it in me.
These snowflakes come to you courtesy of my big sister.
My eldest sister (for your memory I have two older sisters), has recently started on the path of handmade crafts.
And has she ever. She didn’t just carefully dip one toe in the pool, no she dove in head first and with a big splash. And she is on a roll!
She made a whole collection of different tatted snowflakes. I will proudly display them on my Christmas tree this year (alongside my ever so humble too easy crochet ornaments).
She also asked me if I wanted to sell some in my shop. And did I ever!
So as of now, I have
two sets [UPDATE: only one is still available] of these beautiful handmade tatted Christmas ornaments available. Snatch them up fast, you will love them!
A set has either three of four unique tatted lace snowflakes.
Maybe one day my big sister will guest post here and show you how to make these Christmas ornaments yourself.
I guess that would make her Songbird 2.0
But until then hop on over to Songbirds Nest and get yourself some original tatted Christmas ornaments.
Stay warm my friends (or cool if you happen to live down under)!
