I have just recently become obsessed with all things Magnolia Pearl. I was browsing on eBay a couple of weeks ago and happened to come upon this book by Robin Brown, A Bit of Velvet and a Dash of Lace, and it looked so intriguing I bought it. I was not disappointed. It inspired me to go through my collection of old lace and trims and create this Santa. He is definitely sporting the lagenlook (German for layered look) with an undershirt made from a vintage lace dresser scarf (coffee-dyed and a little tattered) hanging below his jacket. I further embellished him with vintage mother-of-pearl buttons and belt buckle and a combination of new and vintage trims. Had myself a big old time! He tells me his name is Gunther.
