2020 Items: Below is a sampling of candleholders being sold in 2020. A sampling of the hand-painted tiles will be displayed in August.
July's ornament of the month is shatterproof dark blue-base ornament. It has a silver "eye" which is enclosed with blue and silver sparkle paint. The ornament's design outline is a pewter white color with black shading and filled in with blue pearl, silver and blue glitter paints. the ornament is topped with white highlighting and silver stippling. The ornament has a 2-1/2" diameter.
This month's flower is pinkish-red. I have been guilty the past couple of years of using too much pink in my designs. I think the pink-red flowers have influenced me more than I realize.
Check back next month for a new flower inspiration.

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!
