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.

In addition, I’ve added loads of my little vintage Christmas delights. Have a peek!

A Show this Saturday and Wreath Availability!

17NAHAPostcardFRONT.jpg

For all my Richmond, VA area friends, I hope you will join me this Saturday, November 18th at the 28th annual Northside Artists Holiday Artwalk.  This year we have 50 artists showing their wares in 10 locations (most of them private homes) in our beautiful neighborhood.  This is my only event in Richmond this season so I hope you can make it. Please go to the Facebook page to see the details and examples of everyone’s work.

This year I will be back at Ginter Place, 1350 Westwood Avenue (it’s the former Richmond Memorial Hospital – now condos). I will have my full selection of Glittermoon Cards, including Holiday/Christmas cards and notecards and a nice array of vintage Christmas items.

Holiday Glamour

Holiday Glamour Wreath

I’ve been holed up in Santa’s Workshop, Southern Branch, feverishly working to have things ready for the Country Living Fair which is (😳) next week!!!! Things are going pretty smoothly (so far) and if the weather cooperates and the Mr. is feeling pretty good, then everything will be ok.

I thought I would try to write a post about each of the 5 wreaths I’m planning on taking with me. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to show you what I make in any detail and I figured it was about time!

First up is a very special one I’ve dubbed “Holiday Glamour.”

The reason I think it’s special is not only because it’s got some pretty fabulous stuff in it but the color palette is scrumptiously poppy. The huge Japan celluloid/plastic reindeer (he’s about 12″ tall) and the gorgeously flashy enormous white and gold package decoration on top are the tip of the iceberg.  There’s also a lovely double-decker indented blue topper slashing its way across the center for one.  Other items of note are 2 huge Shiny Brite stencilled balls; 2 Jewelbrite plastic dioramas (the angel and the yellow one on the bottom); a vintage corsage with bells and red ribbon; beautiful indented ornaments; and a host of bells, Shiny Brites, and other lovelies.  The colors are hot pinks and golds with shots of white, blue, green and silver.  There are swags of silver beaded garland on the bottom as a final elegant touch.

Here are some photos so you can see all the details. Be sure to click on them to see them full size – so much better!

I’ll try to get back tomorrow with the next one so stay tuned!

++++++++++++

I hope you’ve gotten your tickets already to the Fair.  Even better is an Early Bird ticket that gets you in an hour-and-a-half before everybody else does!  That means you get first dibs on everything!  You can go here to get yours (you can get regular tickets here, too!)

I will be in my usual spot, Booth 34-36 on D-Loop, Dogwood Path. It’s just above where Azalea Circle (A Loop) meets Dogwood at D-Leg (and between D22 and D50 as seen on the map below).

And then…

Suddenly it’s October!!! Holy smokes, time is burning past like a meteor flying through the heavens.

I’m in full-on work mode. I’ve made 4 wreaths that will be available from Beekman1802.com  when the Holiday website launches on or around November 1.  Now I am concentrating on making things for the Country Living Fair in Atlanta later this month.  I’ve got several things finished but I have not photographed them yet.

Be sure to get your tickets in advance – that will save you some $$ that you can use to shop!!  I’m going to let you in on a little secret, too: I think this will be my last trip down there so if you have wanted to go and have not before, please get it together and come see me! I love, love, love this show – it’s amazing. You will not regret going. It’s a fabulous girlfriend weekend, by the way.  Tickets and all the info are available via the link above.

I had a really fun time up in Sharon Springs, NY last month for Harvest Festival. It was great to see and catch up with old friends and meet new ones. I had a wonderful time out at Beekman Farm, too.  My niece, Sophie, was able to come with me and that was a lot of fun. She made quite a splash; she’s a red-headed troublemaker.  Here are some pictures of our trip for you.

So this is the wreath I was working on at the Farm:

And this is how it turned out:

Reindeer Run

It is one of the 4 wreaths that will be for sale on Beekman1802.com.

Here are the other 3:

I’ve also recently completed a wreath for a customer using her late mother’s ornaments. It  was a joy to make.

I added the jumbo Poland ball on the left with the Christmas lady, the topper, and the house at the top (so she would think of home) and a few other odds and ends but most of it was hers. Great bright, happy colors.

In addition, I’ve made a wreath with this happy pixie taking center stage.

This is the only photo I’ve got to show you while I was making it and it’s pretty bad due to the fluorescent lighting in my workshop. But I love the color palette.

IMG_3683 - Version 2It’s a bit different with coppery colors and autumnal tones.  I love the finished wreath. Once I take some pictures, I’ll share them as soon as I can.

In other news, you may remember that I ridiculously agreed to open my house on a tour this Saturday, the 7th.  That’s been a real time sucker, too, but the house is looking really beautiful after all the new paint, papering, and general sprucing up.  The great thing is that once Saturday is over, we can just relax and enjoy our “new digs.”

Among the changes I’ve made, I took a leap and changed the color of our front door from traditional Charleston Green (which is a black green) to a gorgeous light color with a finish that is mirror-like.

This is Danny putting the first coat on:

And here is the finished door, minus the knocker (I took that to be polished up – it needed it after 31 years).

IMG_3616 - Version 2

Looks fabulous, doesn’t it?  We are getting a new wooden storm door and that will not get put on until the eleventh hour…at least I hope it will.

This is my builder Mike (closely watched by Emma P), fitting it the other day. It then had to go to the painter’s, then back to the place that made it to put the glass in, and finally back here for Mike to install it. Hopefully, it will get in by Friday. Fingers crossed. Whew.

I’ll leave you now but I hope all of you are well.  This has been a very, very difficult week (they seem to keep coming and coming at us, don’t you think?).  I’m having a really hard time shaking off the sadness.  So, my wish for you is the peace which passeth all understanding. Hold everyone tight. xo

Back to Work!

Just a little quickie to let you know that I finally made it out to the workshop today and got started on what I think is going to be a real charmer.

I’ll be back to post some pictures of the Golden Glow of Christmas Past convention – it was fabulous! If you go their Facebook page, you’ll see all sorts of photos people took – both of their treasures and the convention in general.

Stay tuned….
