We’re getting into the right mood for the holidays – and thanks to Linda’s Mum we now even have a Christmas Tree made of some of our own >Vintage Bobbins! A combination of old silk bobbins wrapped with twine and yarns as well as some smaller Christmas tree ornaments make a beautiful, small tree (that can be stored away in a small box if we wanted to because the bobbins are only stacked and not glued together).
The Workshop and Atelier here resembles more and more the Workshop on North Pole – or the Christkindl’s Workhop for those who rather believe in a not-to-be-seen Angle-like gift bringer (Austrians do!).
So we still amuse ourselves with fine paper and paper twines and can only recommend it to all of you who are still looking for some ideas to wrap up their presents and add a personal touch. More Paper Yarns and Twines can be found here
The other topic we’re still playing around with is a bit more personal – the perfect table top for a great Christmas evening with the family… but we’re getting there and luckily there is still some time left.
So many lovely things to add some charm this year’s Christmas table… in the end it will be perfect!
Vintage Bobbins used as candle holders with flair and history
I have been talking about it for a while – and thanks to autumn mist there was a great opportunity to finally make a picture or two: Vintage Bobbins used as Candle Holders with some flair and history. (In case you are my decoration-opposed boyfriend: well, this might have happened on you kitchen table… but it’s just really a nice table for a photoshoot!).
Jill from paperdollaccessories has found a wonderful combination in her photography featuring her fabulous Rosetta Hair Clips and a Paper Twine Bobbin in the background.
And I’ve been talking about the use of bobbins as props in photoshoots, too – and not only the vintage ones! Jill from paperdollaccessories has been using one of PaperPhine’s Bobbins with Stong Natural Paper Twine in her products photos lately and I really love the look she has created! A bit romantic, a bit girly, unusual and very stylish in a laid-back manner. Thanks, Jill!
