Busy Bee of Paris....

I am having so much fun creating these vintage Spun Cotton figures....once you get into this art form you start thinking of all kinds of fun characters....and you know me and bees...so here is a special Busy Bee of Paris that is as sweet as can be........

I prop these up on glasses and things so they add a little touch of fun to a special vignette in any room....They will make you smile and remember a time when hand crafted vintage things were very special gifts.....

Over 150 years ago in Germany cottage industries produced handmade ornaments spun from cotton. Each one was unique. Later, the craft expanded to Occupied Japan and Russia. Today these ornaments are highly prized and collectible but little information is available about how they were made.

This is the way I think they were made...and I enjoy creating each and every piece.....

I hope you love this cute Busy Bee of Paris....She is off to my Etsy Shop....I sold my last two pieces....and I am thrilled to be shipped them all the way to California....they will be nice and warm down there!!!

Happy Monday!!!

She is so much fun, Diana! What great ideas you always have!! Although, I have to say that I am glad that "real" bees don't have faces - I think it would freak me out just a little... Hope you have a honey-sweet day!! Love, Silke
