Ornament of the Month

Aug 2018 Ornament of month

At GreenFest in May, I was asked if I had any angel ornaments. Sure enough, I had one on my worktable that I had been trying to tweak. I had picked it up at a sale earlier in the year. My angel was a pretty plain jane - all white with a few black features. I wish that I had taken a "before" picture. My husband insisted that my angel ornament looked like a bowling ball pin with wings.

Hope you like my angel's (yet to be named) new look! She is decorated with translucent sparkle colors, topped with crystal highlights and gold stippling. Hope that her smile brings a smile for you.

The angel is 5 inches high, 2-1/4 inches wide (without her wings) and 5 inches wide with wings.

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 Aug 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!
