My favorite holiday is Christmas. I love the lights and carols and colors. (Red is my favorite color and I will go into stores and just be mesmerized by all the shades of red.) I love the reason for the holiday which is the birth of a little Jewish baby boy in Bethlehem. What an amazing God that would allow His son to be born in such a broken world.
This year I decided to make Victorian Carolers for ornaments on the tree. My first was the female caroler which took some research on how their clothing looked. I love the muff and the little cape. She even works as a bookmark
With all the research I naturally came across men's outfits and of course, I had to try my hand at this outfit also. I love the top hat of the era so I knew I wanted to include this in my ornaments (or bookmark).
Now I was on a role. I had to try designing a scene with snow and a period lamp post to read the music by. The lamp post itself made a fun ornament (or bookmark). This was a much bigger project but I really love how it came out.
