Booty for Atlanta

I finally was able to photograph all the beauties I have been making to take to Atlanta’s Country Living Fair this week (don’t forget – it’s Oct. 21-23!).

So have a sneak peek at some of what I will be taking with me.  I’m on a mad tear trying to get everything together at the last minute since we take off early Wednesday morning.

Please come see me in person to see all the treasures I will have with me. I’m so excited to see everyone!  Remember, I’m in Booth D34-36 on Dogwood Trail (my usual spot in case you’ve visited before).

First are 2 new wreaths:dsc_0139-version-2 dsc_0110-version-2

Followed by 2 new topiary centerpieces:dsc_0297-version-2 dsc_0271-version-2

And, then there are a multitude of Tiny Topiaries. I had a blast making these – there are some that are just too cute for their own good!  These are just some of them. I’ve got lots more, too!

Have a great night everyone. See you soon, I hope!

Country Living Fair Atlanta Next Week!

This time next week, we (hopefully!) will be all set up and ready for the Fair to begin on Friday, October 21!

Set in beautiful Stone Mountain Park, just outside of Atlanta, this is my favorite of all the Country Living Fairs.  I’m excited to be back and very happy that the Glittermoon booth will once again be on Dogwood Trail in our old spot: D34-36.

Here are some photos of how the booth looked last time (back in 2014 – you all know why I had to miss last year).

I’ve been hard at work making lots of new things but I have not had a chance to properly photograph them yet.  That’s a project for this weekend. Until then, here are a few (terrible) phone pictures to whet your appetite.

It’s not too late to get tickets! You can even get them at the gate if you want (though you save some $$ by buying in advance).

Take a look at some of the exciting things that will be going on over the course of the weekend and then get yourselves all lined up for some amazing shopping!

I hope to see you there!

I’ll be back in a couple of days with more (and better) pictures.  Til then, have a great weekend!

Getting Ready for Lift Off!

Hi, everyone and a happy Memorial Day to you all!clf616-612x612-31016-1

I’m scrambling – truly – to get ready to depart on Wednesday for the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY.  I hope you will think about coming if you are in the beautiful Hudson Valley area next weekend. You can find out all about it here. The Fair is an amazing experience with artisans from all over the US as well as lots of antique and vintage  shopping plus talks and demonstrations by lots of people, including Brent and Josh, the Beekman 1802 Boys, you’ve heard me talk about so often. They will be there on Saturday and will have a pop-up version of the Beekman 1802 Mercantile set up for the duration of the show.

I have been assigned an amazing booth space in Barn 29,  right on Main Street.  It’s an end spot directly across Main St. from the Earth Angels. Here is a Map of the Fairgrounds for you: Rhinebeck

And here is the schedule:Rhinebeck schedule

See? You’ve gotta come!

I quickly wanted to share with you the “real” pictures of those 5 wreaths I recently finished. I will be taking a total of NINE wreaths with me to the Fair, as well as the Golden Halo Centerpiece, and about 4 DOZEN  (Four Dozen!! See – I told you I’ve been busy!!)  “Tiny Topiaries.”  I love them all – haven’t photographed them yet (hopefully tomorrow before I pack them) but they are totally charming. Plus, I will have my full stock of Glittermoon Cards and original photography.  Oh, and some really fun vintage merchandise to boot.  I’m so excited!

Without further ado, here are the 5 new ones:

Finally, in honor of Memorial Day, I’d like to share a picture of my Dad who served in the US Navy during World War II.  As a Lieutenant on a Destroyer Escort, he sailed in both the Atlantic and Pacific campaigns.  Thank you, Daddy,  and thank you to all the brave souls who fight for our freedoms.

Getting Ready for Atlanta!

Day after tomorrow, Phylliss and I will be heading off for Stone Mountain Park and the last Country Living Fair of the year. You can still get advance tickets online through tomorrow, 10/21.  That option saves you both time and money!

I have been out in Santa’s workshop pretty much non-stop trying to get things made to take with me.  I apologize for not being very present on the blog.  This is the time of year when I just never seem to be able to stretch myself enough to cover all the bases. It will most likely be like this until the middle of December.  When I get back from Atlanta, I have 6 commissions to make in between the shows so I am feeling a bit stressed over that.  But very, very happy to have the opportunity to make special wreaths for people!

Also, pretty soon I will be able to tell you some exciting stuff that I have had to keep to myself so please stay tuned.

Before I sign off for the evening, I do want to share with you two new wreaths and a bunch of the “Mini Topes” that I have been making.

Let me know what you think of them, ok?

Pink Joy

Pink Joy

This is Pink Joy.  This is for the person who loves the hot pinks, golds, greens, and other snazzy colors for Christmas.  It has some really cool stuff on it.  I think this one hung on a mirror would be fabulous.

Mid-Century Memories

Mid-Century Memories

Mid-Century Memories is just that.  With a wonderful Santa candy container as the centerpiece, this baby has all the stuff we boomers grew up with at our Christmases.  That’s even an aluminum tree branch poking out of the top.  Way too much fun!

And next is a little gallery of some of the “Mini Topes” that I have made for this fall.  There are some really fun ones in this bunch – and some pretty ones, too.  Please click on the pictures to enlarge them.

And, finally, I leave you with an elegant wall pocket to hang as part of your Christmas decorating.IMG_2658 - Version 2

Have a wonderful night everyone!  I hope to see you in Atlanta!
