August CandleHolder of the Month

Aug 2019 Ornament of Month

We had the opportunity to visit AnnMarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center in Dowell (Solomons), MD. ( Annmariegarden.org ) They had a really neat Folk Art show on the second floor of their art center. It inspired me to paint a couple candleholders with more folk-art like patterns.

The candleholder base color is a light bluish-gray transluscent glass. The candle holders are decorated with a gold design that is colored with white, purple, pink, blue and copper transluscent paint, topped with crystal highlights and gold stippling. The candleholders are 5" high with 3" diameter bases.

The candleholders are a fun decorative accent to any decor.

Up-cycled Tile Coasters: 4 inch square and 7-1/2 inch hexagon ceramic tiles decorated in many colors and unique designs.

A Note from Diana Shutt...
Christmas is my favorite season of the year. I enjoy advent and Christmas activities. I also enjoy seeing the many colorful celebrations that are lit up everywhere.

I do my part in adding to the Christmas festivities by hand-painting designs on recycled and newer glass and shatter-proof ornaments. Each ornament is unique, like a snowflake. Although some share the same colors, each ornament's design will be unique. The ornaments can be displayed in many ways - on Christmas trees, in windows or on tables. Some customers use the ornaments to create unique jewelry.

One customer shared that she thinks the ornaments are "An Updated Twist on Tradition." Others have stated that they remind them of ornaments seen on trips to Europe and Russia.

Whether you need extra large, large, medium, small or mini ball ornaments, or a unique ornament from the "Limited Edition" Collection, we hope to meet your decorating needs. The vast majority of the ornaments are upcycled with original conditions ranging from slightly-used to well-used. Newer ornaments are also decorated to fill in gaps.

With a variety of ornament sizes, shapes and colors to choose from – we have a price that should fit into almost everyone’s budget. Browse our Gallery and let us know what you think!
