This afternoon, I got the unbelievable news that one of my wreaths was featured in the LA Times Home Section today!!! The LA Times!!!! Wow.
You can read the article here.
It is this one:
“Flying High” is really special because it has, among lots of other truly wonderful vintage ornaments, a rare Italian blown glass ski jumper that was commissioned by Sears, Roebuck, and Co. in 1955 to commemorate the 1956 Winter Olympics.
It has been listed on the Beekman 1802 Holiday website.
I say “has been” because I got a call this morning from Beekman 1802 about it. Somebody wanted to buy it. But….they needed it to be delivered to Los Angeles on Monday! Uh, let’s see, today is Saturday. From Richmond, VA to LA via FedEx Priority Overnight is doable. But it is not a cheap date. I called the customer to discuss the options and they decided to go ahead and pay the extra money to have it delivered in time for a party they are having on Monday.
So, “Flying High” is most likely now flying high somewhere over the US on its way to its new home.
And, boy, I’m flying high, too.
My undying gratitude to Brent and Josh, who are Beekman 1802, for inviting me to make things that I love for them. Without them, this would never have happened.
