I love making vignettes in shadowboxes and Christmastime lends itself to this creative task. Here is a little Victorian scene I created for close friends and I hope they will use it year after year when they decorate for Christmas.
I found the wonderful old desk in my supply closet, no doubt a remnant of an ancient dollhouse. I wrapped up small pieces of wood for Christmas gifts. The darling little girl was found in a vintage photo on Pinterest which I hand colored.
The snow covered scene outside the huge window was painted by Arthur Rackham in the Golden Age of book illustration. The tiny Santa figure was cut from one of my decorating magazines. My Christmas tree is decorated with lace, jewelry and beads.
The wreath was cut out of a magazine and moss and faux berries were glued on. And the smaller window shows part of the same Rackham painting. Merry Christmas, everyone!
