Beautiful Boundaries

A boundary is a line of demarcation and, as such, generally a practicality.  Quite often, however, the practical also has an aesthetic side, taking the sting out of what is essentially a “Do Not Enter” sign.

From the humble picket fence to the grandeur of gilt, all are beautiful boundaries. Please click on each image to see full size (so much better!).

  1. Hi My name is Sonja and my question is, do you have any wreaths for sale or will you have more later? The ones on display seem to be all sold. Thankyou Sonja

    • Hi, Sonja. At the moment, I only have one for sale. If you go to the 2014 Designs page, the wreath named “Angel Glow” is still available. Due to family illness, I have not been able to work much this year to date. However, I will have some wreaths available on the Beekman 1802 website in mid or late November. Also, I am taking custom orders – though I cannot at this point promise a delivery date due to circumstances. If you are interested in any of these options, please email me at glittermoon@me.com. Thanks very much for coming by to visit! Cackie
