Snowflake Wishes (Somerset Life)

After my Spools of Positivity pendants were published in Somerset Life, I seemed to still have the urge to work with wooden craft spools expect this time the idea was  for festive/winter ornaments.  It’s funny that end results can be completely different yet one project can be a springboard for another.  To have this collection also published in Somerset Life, well it sure does mean a great deal to me (understatement!)

    Dear Lynne, I`m swooning seeing them on your blog, as your wonderful photos surely do them justice , showing all the beauty they hold.
    I can see them in a window, as you say, where they will bring the sun, to shine even more. So very stunning, are they all, and so lovely in your tiny white bag, with the snowflake . I so love them, my friend.
    Dorthe, xx

    How exquisitely beautiful these ornaments are. I can just imagine the sun glinting on them as they catch the light glancing in through a lace curtain in some enchanted castle. xx

    These are beautiful and I would never have guessed they were wooden spools. Very pretty as ornaments and pendants.

    Beautiful festive ornaments! Love the thought of them catching the light from the winter sun, just as a snowflake does too. J 🙂

    Amazing! Your patience with all those tiny, exquisite embellishments is showing through in this cluster of sparkly ornaments. They are quite enchanting. What a wonderful idea to use those little wooden spools as such lovely, festive decorations during the up coming celebrations. Congratulations, Lynne on another very well deserved published work of art. Inkybru xx
