Hi:

I finally took the plunge and registered after lurking on and off for a couple of years.

I am working on a formal paper dress for each holiday and plan to frame them together, all hanging on wire hangers off pushpins in cork.

This ornament is titled: Christmas Finery.


Thanks for looking.

Thanks so much for the nice comments.

Banga:

A piece of wire fell out of the envelope that held my odds and ends and I thought I'd try twisting it into a hanger. It is a bit rough but felt so good to make it myself.

Balkandina:

I'd be happy to send it to you so you can give it to your daughter. I always think art hasn't reached it's full potential until you give to someone who would enjoy it.

It reminds me of the extravagant gowns of the 1940's christmas musicals.  Truly lovely!

Thanks, Michelle~

That is exactly the look I was going for. I had just watched some musicals and old movies and that is what gave me the idea.

It is so cool that you got the same impression.
