Some new handmade goodies added to shop! Have you ever heard of a surprise ball?? Well, they are one of my very favorite things to make and give and receive. They originated in the the 1950's. Basically they are made of crepe paper streamers, that are wound in a ball shape around trinkets and toys and things and then decorated. The recipient starts unwinding the ball, and as they do, the gifts fall out one by one! It is very fun!! Anyway, I have created some "vintage valentine surprise balls" as well as handmade plush elephant and owl. Enjoy the photos!
