2010 Ornaments Revealed

I know, finally, right? You probably thought I forgot. Or maybe I left you hanging so long that YOU forgot! In any case, here are the *Retro Rosey* ornaments that I have been designing, creating, and packaging for a couple of months. Off and on, but still.
~*~
Each step of the creation process was very carefully considered; the colors, patterns, sizes, stitched designs. There were MANY starts and stops along the way.
~*~
I was encouraged when I showed them to the owner at The Muse- she loves them, and wants a bunch in stock for the holidays.
~*~
They will be sold in sets of three- each set will include one of each shape and color. Each one has an upcycled, vintage fabric patch on the back. They come packaged for giving, on cello-covered glittery cardstock with a handmade Retro Rosey tag.
~*~
I've worked so hard on the photographs, trying to get them exactly perfect. I'm not there yet, but if I keep waiting for perfection I may be awhile.
~*~
So tah-dah! I'm holding my breath over here.... What do you think?

Thanks so much for your feedback and question, Rebecca! I initially thought I'd stick with the "traditional" retro colors, but I always include the option to change colors in my listings. BUT, I think you may be on to something... I will work up a set in more Christmassy colors this weekend :)

Hi Rachele- thank you!!

Melissa said...

I love them! The colors are perfect for that shabby chic/cottage Christmas. I think it's a good idea to work some up in traditional colors too...what the heck!
Smiles, Karen

All of these comments warm my heart- thank you! I will definitely have some traditional colors to share with you next week-I went yarn shopping today! Like I don't have bins upon bins of yarn already- oy.

Emily- you can see the backs of the ornaments in the listing in sosorosey... I agree, it's important to see all angles when making an online purchase :)
