Elizabeth Stewart Clark & Company

Christmas Fun

If you’re looking to add a bit of mid-century flair to your modern decor, what about some fantastic silhouette ornaments?

These Regency silhouettes from the Magic Bean have me thinking hard about doing up a set of 1840, 1850, or 1860 silhouettes, with appropriately altered millinery shapes.

What a great addition to a mantle, tree, or even as a special seating placecard for a fine holiday meal! Please, someone craftier than I am, make a set and take snapshots. (I may have to break down and get out the glue… but only after I get all the small handwork projects for my own children out of the way! After all, a warm winter hood, or cozy shawl, or new flannel drawers can be used no matter what the century!)
