Victorian Christmas Elegance

Hi Everyone,

I have just completed designing these large Victorian Tussie Mussies--the ultimate in Christmas chic.

They were created in neutral tones with a "little dainty" (with an organza bag) tucked inside each one. The best part? The organza bag can be placed in a drawer after the holidays so that the Tussie Mussie can be enjoyed all year long.


But there's more--I just added these to my Etsy shop--and if you know anyone who would be interested in having one of them for their very own, each one comes with a large matching free decorative tag perfect for home decorating. On each tag is a clothespin embellished with vintage sheet music graphics.

The tags with accompanying clothespins could be used as a separate gift, so it's a great way to enjoy elegance with a bit of "thriftiness" at the same time!

Tussie Mussies are ideal to adorn a fireplace mantle, hanging from a vase, or dangling from the bannister of a staircase. They can even be placed on a table to create a Victorian vignette.

Linking this to French Country Cottage!

Oops! Sorry--these are sold! But, I'm going to try to make more this week!

Hugs,
Cindy

Hi Cindy-Thank you so much for stopping by my blog so I could find you. I have been reading several of your wonderful posts. The tussie mussies are adorable and as Donna said they would be perfect hanging on the tree. I also loved the journal you created for Debbie. It is gorgeous. You are a very creative person and I'm happy to meet you. I hope you are enjoying a long Thanksgiving weekend.
