Hi everyone.

 
How are you doing, are you well and ready for the holiday season ? Myself are Feeling a bit behind with everything, like I always do. But I try not to worry, so I keep it as simple as possible. I have a motto : buy less and make more. That I find more enjoyable also.

But, I did buy something. Last year I started a new tradition, collecting a few simple ornaments. A couple of weeks ago I received these beautiful ornaments from a Dutch online store. There are tons of different ornaments of glass, wax, paper, cardboard, wire wrapped and metal, molded or blown glass made, which can be found at different markets, esty, e-bay etc... I just started collecting so it can be a bit confusing, because there is so incredible much out there. How can you tell about the age, how do you know when they are fake and when they are really antiques? What I do know is that I should watch out for reproductions, conditions and rarity. But, until I am really 100% sure and become more educated I just buy what I find pretty. I really like these. Mostly because of the colour, I love the vintage silver gold finish. I will show you more later on..
 
 
* Happy Wednesday to you *

Leuk om weer iets van je te horen, Aina.
Prachtige deze oude kerstballen. Ook hier hangen oude in onze boom, heel subtiel en niet té vol.
Precies wat jij zegt, maak van weinig iets groots!

Liefs,
Patricia

I also buy the old ornaments when I meet them at markets, I don't know, if they really are very old, but as long as they are pretty - I'll buy them :)
