What do these two things have in common?

Here is Your Chance

Before I list these in the Glittermoon Cards Etsy shop, I wanted to give you, my dear blog followers, first crack at them.  I will most likely be putting them up for the rest of the world towards the end of the week.

If you are interested in purchasing one – or more! – of these beauties, please contact me using the form at the bottom of this page.  Once I know your zip code, I can accurately figure the shipping costs (so please do not forget to include that!) and I can send you an invoice.  Easy peasy.

As a little incentive, I will take $10 off the shipping costs for anyone who buys directly from here until this Friday, June 20th.

As you probably know, I entrust these precious creations to FedEx Ground and that is not exactly a cheap date.  Not cheap – but, so far, pretty darn safe.  As a general rule, for those east of the Mississippi, you can expect the shipping to be in the $35-50 range.  West of that is more expensive, I’m afraid; most likely in the $50-65 range.  I will only charge you   the actual shipping costs (which I why I need a little info from you).

So, without further ado, here are your choices:

SNOW CHARMING

SNOW CHARMING. A delightfully old-fashioned concoction with a snowman theme. 20" diameter not including protruding, drippy bits. $250

Have a wonderful evening and thank you!

 

 

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra

Just a quick little post before I wander off for the evening, a stab at this week’s Photo Challenge.

Here is the Challenge: “Extra. A beautiful photo is one thing, but a photo with an unexpected detail has personality and pop. This week, share a photo that has a little something extra.”

These images are ones I took on my recent European trip.  Please CLICK on them to see them larger – so much better!

Graffiti Extra

Graffiti… EXTRA

In Prague, near the castle.

Dog + Boy

Boy…EXTRA 

In Passau, Germany.  I had the little dog in my sights and as I clicked the shutter, this boy became an extra – and a mighty important one at that.  I think the picture is infinitely better for his presence.

Baby Stork

Stork…EXTRA

In Durnstein, Austria.  Many people won’t care much for this picture but I really love it.  It appeals to my wacky side.  I get a giggle every time I look at that silly stork with the baby doll in its mouth  Just laying in the street, outside the town Rathaus, as if it was hastily forgotten.

Have a wonderful night everyone.

Be sure to look here for others’ vision of this week’s theme.
