May Ornaments of the Month

May 2019 Ornaments of Month

May's Ornaments of the Month are little bees available in 3 sizes - 2", 3" and 4" long. They are up-cycled from old or burnt out Christmas and small light bubls. The bee's wings are shaped from either light-guage wire or wire wrapped with shiny gold ribbon. The bee's faces are decorated washers with googly eyes. The stem that enable the bees to be placed in pots is made from re-cycled wire covered with florist tape. The bees are currently available at the Gift shops and at the May and June shows, until they are all sold.

Hope you enjoy seeing them buzz around.

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!
