I'm Dreaming of a......

Happy White Wednesday and my first Christmas post of the season!
I'm sharing a victorian cone (with just a touch of whimsy) ornament that I made for a special swap sister in our
Bloggerette Sorority Ornament Exchange.

The cone is covered with Warm & Natural then smothered in loads of antique crocheted lace. Mercedes is a "pink" girl so I added a bit of pink and rose with a fabric flower, tulle and seam binding.

Tucked into the inside tulle is an adorable little winter faerie
and if you look closely you'll see she's holding an invitation to the Midnight Christmas Faerie Ball.

And what better way to conclude White Wednesdaythan to share this wonderful white turkey vintage postcard.
Wishing each of you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving.
I do count you among my blessings.
