Jingle junkles

The QB5 gals have been busy again, well some of us have (can't include self here, gulp...) This time our swap was a recycled/junkle Christmas ornament. Patty sent me this gorgeous little bird, sitting in a glittery nest, with a tiny thimble bell below! superb!
and this glam ornament from Linda, made from a cake tin, filled with nesting and a QB5 button! my friends are so clever!! thank you so much!
and this is my effort! more of which should be on the other side of the world by now but instead they're still in snow covered Switzy being photographed hanging from the lavender bush in my garden! ho hum... I made my junkles from an old much loved metal bracelet that fell to pieces, the metal 'flower' is the top of a xmas bauble which the lovely Jenxo inspired me to use! Check out her blog, she has some fab Xmas ideas on the go!

HOW do you make photgraphs taken in cold, gray light look so GOOD? These three look absolutely perfect together! The tiny details on yours is adorable. I love the "star" ornament cap.

These junkles are all so clever, and yours is stunning. I love how you displayed it on your lavender. My lavender died because it doesn't like my climate, so I hope yours is doing well. I hope the weather clears soon, so yours can reach around the world to another snowy place.
