The Basics

Based in Richmond, Virginia USA, Glittermoon Vintage Christmas is unique designs made from ornaments and decorations of yesteryear.  Having had a longtime love of old Christmas things, I admire the craftsmanship and creativity that went into making them. But, as a child of the 1950s, I especially love the wonderful memories these pieces evoke. One day, I saw a magazine article about how to make an ornament wreath so I made one for myself using mostly broken ornaments that I loved too much to throw away. It turned out so well that I decided to start making them to sell as an adjunct to my other artwork.

I search high and low for the most unusual, beautiful, and truly special decorations.  These wonderful pieces have been gently loved, often by several generations in the same family. I especially love it when someone points to an ornament and says, “My grandmother (or mother or aunt) had one of these!”

Every piece I make is unique; there will never be another one like it. This is not only because of the materials themselves (as in what I have in my inventory) but I would be bored to tears if I had to reproduce previous designs. I usually begin each wreath (or centerpiece) with something very special as a focal point.  Loving the mental stimulation of design, I let color, scale, and texture drive the composition.  Generally, it takes parts of 3 days to make a wreath from start to finish.

My wreaths and topiaries have a national following and have been shipped all over the continental USA.  I am a proud member of the Beekman 1802 artisan collective (Beekman1802.com, based in upstate NY) and an artisan at the Country Living (Magazine) Fairs.  My work has been featured in R Home Magazine and the Los Angeles Times.

My wreaths have also been displayed at Zézé Flowers and More & More Antiques, both in Manhattan, and at a handful of other shops on the East Coast.  In 2015, one of my wreaths was auctioned at a charity benefit for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in NYC.  Mariah Carey owns one of my wreaths – a pink one, naturally.
