I know its only November, I do, but for me Christmas starts in August, when I begin to think about all the things I am going to need to make. Lots has been going on for Benny Rens this past month so apologies for my lacking blog posts. Film sets, launch parties, and franticly making christmas stock and teaching workshops, the glamour! Sorry if you have missed me, but know if I’m not here you can catch me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
This year at chez Reynolds we are going to have 2 Christmas trees, where normally we only have one, so inevitably the husband has let me loose on topping up on the baubles! After all I have to fill 2 trees with pretties.
To save money (and keep him happy), I have decided to make some decorations for the tree this year. I know what you’re thinking, ‘like she doesn’t already have crochet decorations’ and I do just not as many as people would think, my other thing I collect other than yarn for those that don’t know is vintage glass. So I love, love, love glass baubles. I stalked Ebay for a while and managed to win these beauties… I love looking at them thinking how many trees before ours they must have decorated and what Christmas secrets they hold. Christmas is so magical and steeped in tradition, that vintage baubles for me, encompasses all that.
