Cookie cutter ceramic tags

I've been playing with cookie cutters in holiday shapes

with ceramic clay rolled out

and the little snowflake stamp

creating one of a kind gift tags

and holiday ornaments

for embellishing and decorating...

Merry bling, bling, bling

with vintage finds ...

and a simple silver beaded wreath,

layered on top of another wreath

this one a little larger

and the process continues ...

until I am happy,

or maybe there is no more space !

I LoVe layering

throughout my cottage home and garden,

in my wardrobe,

in my creative endeavours

and here with all the sparkly treasures

used to create this holiday wreath !

Merry bling, bling, bling,

makes my heart sing !

Holiday decor

Welcoming the holidays with a wreath,

inside or outside the home

is perfect for the beginning of fall season

right through the holidays.

On this traditional style wreath

I especially liked using rose hips instead of the

traditional berries

and the quail rather than a dove.

For a coordinating look in the dining room,

cut a burlap runner and layer it over a white tablecloth

then create a garland down the center

with similar greenery and embellishment.

Consider embellishing with burlap roses with pine cone centers,

and quail eggs with found feathers.

Holiday decorating continues around the cottage...
