I am having so much fun with this old art of Spun Cotton figures....these pieces are my latest creations....Santa bearing gifts and the Dark Angel of Paris....

I think they will look great propped on a glass ....or added to the Christmas tree with your ornaments.... Over 150 years ago in Germany cottage industries produced handmade ornaments spun from cotton. Each 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 piece.....

Happy Monday Everyone!!!! and thanks for popping by....I always love your visits here.....
