Fabric Collage: "The Christmas Present"

Happy New Year to all! I hope that this year brings you everything you hope for and more! Ours was quiet, and that's just fine with me!

I was putting away a few of our Christmas gifts and it inspired me to use one of my vintage images in a fabric collage. I was was looking at this old photo and wondering if long ago these children had received this hobby horse for Christmas. I think that it is a beautiful old photo, and decided to use it along with some scraps that I had sitting on my work table.

Some ticking and burlap,
along with old lace and buttons...

...surround the beautiful old photo...

I'm sorry that there is no consistency to the color in these photos, but we are leaving tomorrow to return my dad to Florida, and I don't have time to pretty them up. I will be out of commission for a bit since we are also visiting friends while we are down there.

I hope that you have a great day and a great week! Thanks for stopping by.
