April 2018 News:
Shatter-Proof Gallery Collection: Customers at the 2017 Shows requested shatter-proof hand-painted ornaments because they had pets (primarily cats) who loved to knock ornaments off their tree. In order to respond to their requests, I went on the hunt for some uniquely shaped shatter-proof ornaments to up-cycle. Check out the new Shatter-proof Ornament Gallery Collection. Additional ornaments will be added to the collection throughout the next couple months. Hope you enjoy the collection.

Etsy Store Coming Soon: Recently there have been requests for online ornament purchases. Since the website was primarily set up as an online ornament brochure, a separate online store will be set up on Etsy during the month of April to handle online sales. Will post more information when available.

Ornaments of the Month

April 2018 Ornament of month

At the 2017 shows, many people suggested that I include shatter-proof ornaments in my collections of hand-painted ornaments. The reason often stated was they had pets who would break the glass ornaments.

April 2018 Ornaments of the Month are the shatter-proof hand-painted ornaments and the mini transparent glass ornaments displayed on the Easter Basket Tree.

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 decorations 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 may share the same colors, each ornament's design will be unique. The ornaments can be displayed in many ways - decorating Christmas trees, windows and tables. Some curstomers 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!
