Victorian Ornaments for Christmas ~
Collinsville Garden Club recently got together to make Victorian ornaments from Victorian scrap.
These ornaments will decorate the Victorian tree at the Collins House this Christmas season. The tree will be one of many trees at the house, each depicting a particular era.
Of particular interest is the wired garland that is used for hanging the ornaments. The silver garland, now tarnished from age, dates back to the late 1800s - early 1900s.
Time to take a break! Even the elves in Santa's workshop take a moment
to enjoy a little snack for energy.

The ladies are proud of their craftsmanship, as well they should be!
Can't wait to see them in our Christmas decor just a few weeks away. . .
