Jingle bells...jingle bells...

There is nothing like South Asian gold trim. Unless you are in Las Vegas where there'd be a tie in the glitzy shiny sparkly flashy attention-grabbing category. One of the things I collect at the local second-hand department store, are bags of South Asian gold trim. I keep thinking that one day I'll do something with it.
I've been making paper bells and actually, they are a bust. One of them is salvageable and will be given to my neighbour. She will love it. The others are experiments. I know that I want to use the paper sewn together as a fabric of sorts and I am very excited to do many more experiments to see what I come up with. A few days before Christmas is not the time to do this. So I have to force myself to put away my toys and get on with the gift wrapping, baking, and last minute shopping.
May the bells ring out in your homes. Nice to see you today, and I hope to see you again soon! *smiles* Norma


  1. My toys are still out and in between jobs I have been playing but it's time to start packing them away.......

    Your bells look wonderfully festive and I can imagine how lovely and 'tinkly' they would sound......

    Enjoy the festivities with family and friends.....
