Stacy is madly in with Patriotic cotton ornaments, so when I found a page from an 1880’s scrapbook dedicated to the celebrating the 1776 centennial (signing of the declaration of independence), I had a vision for all of the elements. First I wove over 100 Lily-of-the-valley millinery flowers with wire and antique tinsel garland into a beautiful 4 foot garland. I found perfect Dresden paper frames for Martha and George and backed them with velvet fabric. I covered cardboard shapes with my best antique cotton batting, carefully detached and incorporated the gorgeous die-cut papers from their 140 year old scrapbook page, added more tinsel, Dresden paper, antique scrap flowers (notice Martha has a geranium under her portrait, patriotic antique thread and ribbon, and rimmed all three shapes with my home-made floral garland.
Lovingly handcrafted and signed by Gail Giaimo.
Our Signature Style - To Make an Ornament for You that Lasts for Generations! You will know you have a ultra-custom Dresden Star Work of Art because we sign and date each and every ornament, as well as add our gold hang tag with your specific ornament’s unique one-of-a-kind inventory number on it. You will receive your ornament gently packed between layers of tissue paper in a beautiful embossed gold box with care and handling instructions. With over 15 years of experience, we are expert at wire-wrapping each ornament to help protect it against accidental breakage (just like those smart Victorians). We take extra time and pains to meticulously back every scrap to cardstock and old-stock papers to protect these beautiful and fragile illustrations so they will last for generations to come.
