This year for Xmas I started a new tradition for our house.
A tree. I suppose, a Xmas tree. And being me, it had to have a hand-made element.
Our ornaments were mostly paper cranes.
:: leaves | paper crane | star ::
And some hand-made stars from Thailand (the wooden ones, they smell divinely of cinnamon) and from India (in painted tin).
:: star | ball | paper crane ::
Completed with hand-painted glass balls from China.
I also planned to make these lovely felt doves from Purl SoHo, but didn’t order them in time. Never mind, they will do for next time.
:: the tree ::
Like all good Xmas trees, slightly cluttered. (The tree itself comes from pulp|creative|paper).
