Holiday Season 2012

Well here we are with the warmest of Novembers trying to get into the holiday season!
I am still eating salad greens and going for long walks with Serafina, so the burr factor hasn't made me start singing It's a "marshmallow world" or anything.
The furnace is on and the ornaments are flowing through our busy hands as we melt swirl, rake and dunk the gathers into all manner of traditional decorations. We are told our ornaments are often left up all year since they are too pretty to only use on the Christmas Tree. Thanks!

You can find us and a great batch of sparkles (blown glass) at the upcoming crafts shows. We are making lot's of gift items for you to choose from.
