You may remember a few posts back, where I was debating what to do with two sets of vintage Alpine Villages. Part of me felt like I should keep the sets original, while the other part of me wanted to have FUN. Guess which part won?!
Although our entire house, including the dog, look as though they've been caught in a Twister of pixie dust, I think it was all worth it.
There are 8 cottages and 2 churches in this village. I added fake snow to each and dusted them all with glitter for more eye appeal.
I love the pastel colors in the set - Yellow, Pink, Green/Teal, and Blue.
Each cottage is unique. There are too many ideas to make the same thing twice!
Santas, carolers, snowmen, and choir boys.
I can't explain the satisfaction I have when recreating old pieces into something fresh and new.
Although I'm using vintage materials, they're each given entirely new looks.
An old decoration is completely reworked into a glitzy modern piece that still echoes bygone times.
My nimble fingers work quickly, but my eyes grow tired working with such delicate miniatures.
Building tiny scenes easily lets my imagination wander into this miniature world.
Some people tell me they'd never have the patience to work on such a small scale, but I welcome the challenge......
and am thrilled with the results.
These are all being shared in my Etsy shop.
I'll be taking a break from my art studio until January to devote more time for Christmas preparations. (I also feel like I have so much to blog about and catch up on other's blogs. I miss reading them!) I can't believe it's less than 2 weeks away! There's so much to do. I've got to get moving and fast - Feet don't fail me now!
