I realize that at this point in the year we are actually closer to Christmas 2015 than we are to Christmas 2016 but you know how it is around here - it's best to get a jump on these things. Plus, I had started thinking through a re-design last Fall so I was itching to get started on these.
I've bumped up the designs this year from 4 in 2015 to 7 in 2016. There were a few more that I wanted to include but they didn't quite make the cut. With some tweaking they might make an appearance at some point though - I hate to just let them go.
The hoops are gone this year too in favor of a new engraved wood frame that I love. I am so happy with that aspect of these - I just think it gives these such a clean and modern look.
The new frames make these just a bit larger than the hooped ornaments and they measure 3.25 inches across (with the bump out for the hanger on top the top to bottom measurement is slightly more than that)
And yes, even though I am so mad at the naughty squirrels in our backyard who refuse to share any birdseed at all with our winged friends, I still felt compelled to make this little guy. And see how he has an acorn instead of birdseed?? Other squirrels take note - an acorn is a perfectly acceptable (and encouraged) snack.
