Sugar Plum Topiary Centerpiece

I have just finished adding LOTS of new things for you in the GlittermoonCards Etsy shop, including this beautiful topiary centerpiece in cool pastel shades. I named it Sugar Plum, probably for obvious reasons.  This would make anyone’s holiday table look amazing.  Go here to see more pictures and get all the information on it.

New Event Coming Up!

Trippe Gallery ad 12:17

I am literally up to my eyeballs with trying to get things made right now to satisfy deadlines but I wanted to let you know of an event coming up at the end of next week that I am very excited about.

I’m super excited because it’s in my hometown, Easton, MD, and it’s at my sister’s art gallery, Trippe-Hilderbrandt Gallery.  Please go visit her website and see the terrific lineup of artists, in several mediums, that she represents.  She’s a very talented photographer as well and her work is on display, too.

I was born and raised on the bucolic Eastern Shore of Maryland and I am thrilled beyond belief to be going home for a couple of days. I’m so looking forward to seeing family and old friends that I have not seen in ages. And I get to show off my work. How great is that?

If you live in the DC, Baltimore, Annapolis area, it’s a pretty short drive to Easton.

I will be there Friday evening December 1, for First Friday, from 5-8 PM and Saturday, December 2, from 11-6.  There is a LOT going on in town that weekend, including the Christmas parade (!). I hope I will see you there!

I’m currently working on a new wreath that I will name “Christmas Candy.”

When I was a little girl, my grandmother used to have a bowl full of the most beautiful candy on her coffee table at Christmas.  Do you remember ribbon candy? Anyway, I got to thinking about that and decided to make a wreath with that idea in mind.

This is how I got started but I’m actually much further along with it now. It’s very, very festive!

I will be bringing it to the above-mentioned Trunk Show.

Last but not least, I would like to wish each of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.  I have many, many things to be grateful for, including you.

I’ve been very busy in the workshop creating new product since I returned from Atlanta.

Take a peek at some of it.

First up is a new wreath named “Santa’s House.”  I thought I would share some pics of how it took shape for you.

I began with this charming Santa from Japan:

He still had his price of 39 cents stamped on his bottom!  Then I added this a Japan putz house…

Followed by a bunch of  other things…

IMG_3994and here’s how it ended up:

Santa's House

I love how he turned out. There’s a lot of charm in one package with this one.

Next, I began a wreath with a fabulous HUGE Shiny Brite bell that I have been saving.  It’s a whopping 5 inches tall!

IMG_4001

That’s my sweet girl, Emma P, looking at you.  After I got the bell situated on the top of the wreath, I set about filling things in…

IMG_4004

I used this fabulous double-sided gold spray with silver leaves just above the bell.  I wanted to use soft colors with this one: pastel pinks, greens, golds, and blues with a little bit of bright poppy colors here and there.  This is the finished product, “The Golden Bell.”

It’s a bucket full of sweet. Did you notice that there is one pink and one blue angel? The overall effect is a bit more subdued than in this photo – it’s really a lovely confection.

I’ve spent the last couple of days making some little things to take with me.  I don’t know what it is but making the tiny topiaries is the most fun and makes me incredibly happy. Don’t get me wrong, making wreaths is a wonderful process but the little delights are just that – delightful.

Have a look at a few of them (Please click on them to see bigger and read description):

And, finally, check this out. It’s a metal wall pocket from 1976 with a Japan terrier, tree, ornaments, and vintage ribbon.  I love this! Please pardon the ghastly color from my fluorescent lighting…

All of these goodies will be going with me to Westminster!  Come and get ’em!

And have a wonderful night, everyone! Back soon…
