Soldered Ornaments

Can it already be December 12th?  Wow - just 13 more days 'til Christmas!  I finally did some soldering - I've had no time to do it - but I had to get in there to finish some ornaments.  Every year I do about 10 ornaments for a friend of mine.  I make them from the photo cards people send her.  I would have never thought of that - they make a great gift!  So...while I was making those for her, I created some for myself.

I used vintage images from Nicecrane Designs.  The santa above is from the Vintage Santa Vol IV collection.  And the santa below is actually from a tea bag pocket from the Christmas Tea Bag Wrapper collection.  I just used the picture portion instead of the whole pocket.

And this has to be one of the cutest vintage images ever!

I love it!  I'm going to make it into a Christmas card next year.   It is one of the images from Vintage Christmas Collection I.

Here is a preview of the sets I used:


Such pretty vintage images!  Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Gosh these are real stunners Lori and what a brilliant idea to use cards for them. They look supercool!

  7. These are lovely. You even brought back a delightful Christmas memory with these ornaments. When my dear sister-in-law Audrey was alive, her cards always had a picture of a round and jolly Santa . . . every year a new card and a different picture of the jolly roly-poly elf.
    I was three years old when my brother and Audrey married . . . so she was always more of a sister than in-law. Thank you for a memory, that I never want to forget.
    I found you on Lisa's blog, You Make Me Ink, and I am so glad that I did. Come on over and visit.
    I am having my first Give-Away.
