All Those Boxes

I go through a lot of vintage ornaments, especially the little tiny ones.
That's a lot of boxes as well. 
A few seasons ago I came up with the idea to recycle these nifty little boxes into ornaments themselves.

I've been working on getting a bunch of these made to take to Williamsburg in December for the craft show.

I've also had some requests for these this year so I've added a few to my store.

Vintage Christmas Lights

I pretty much collect anything that's vintage christmas and that includes old light bulbs.
I bought a large lot of old C9 lights on the strings years ago because I was drawn to the old shapes and range of colors.
I stashed them away, thinking to myself at the time that I should make something with them.
One day the proverbial "light bulb" went off and the light bulb wreath was created.
I've only ever made a few of these wreaths, the bulbs are hard to find in the wild and they are expensive to purchase on eBay.

These wreaths are also very labor intensive, it's not easy to get these bulbs secured to the wreath form.
All the wreaths above are sold.  You can see pictures of all my wreath creations here.
I've been saving up my bulbs for awhile now and I finally have collected enough to make a few more wreaths.  Over the next week I will be listing them in the store.
Today I'm putting this one, made with those old C6 bulbs, into the store.

This one is only 12" in diameter.  I've combined the bulbs with some pretty vintage shiny brites and an old corsage.
It's a cutie.

Romantic Homes Cover

GeorgiaPeachez Wreaths is on the cover!
Thank you Romantic Homes magazine for featuring my wreaths on your cover and inside your magazine.
I am in full blown wreath production mode from now until the vintage ornies run out.
I will be adding them to the store as I get them made so check in often or follow me on facebook.
I don't create custom orders, I let the shapes and colors guide me to the finished product.
If you have just discovered my place, then welcome and I hope you come back often. 
This is my place to share my slight obession with all things vintage christmas.
** Happy Holidays **
