Idea came from Cloth, Scissors, Paper magazine. Used vintage bottles, several different little charms and trinkets to embellish. Toothpick nose, brads for eyes, and a copper staple for a mouth.
oh- and a vintage style stamp on the back- says faith on the front. Since I dont paint well, I used a sort of rub on lettering to create words.

I loosely based my snowpeeps on those in the Dec issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors. I used some new trim, garland, etc. and lots of vintage touches.
