New Christmas Pieces!
Just in time for the SpookyTime Jingles update tonight at midnight are several new pieces! First up,..
a Snow Moon Luminary! Her eyes how they twinkle,..her cheeks how merry!

The colors of this tree inspired my entire pallette...and I have had too much fun playing with it sister Dusti and I planted it in this beautiful urn in plaster, painted the urn,..and it's been great fun as a photography prop to display new pieces set around it or to hang new ornaments!
This candy cane star seen below is on eBay this week, here for the auction. But the Candy Moon ornament below it is offered on STJ for December! This tree has vintage white little flocked and feathered birds on it as well as a real vintage treat,..pastel colored mercury glass beads. This tree is so kitschy and retro! Here is another shot of what has to be my sweetest Christmas piece,...the Snow Moon Luminary! I found a vintage milk glass hobnail type lamp base,..and its creamy white colored glass with the hobnail edging reminded me of peppermint candy,...and snow,..and ice,..and all things wintery and good. So I made this moon top to fit it! The lamp works and has a turn key type switch and a white cord. The moon has rosy cheeks and stunning eyes,..and a candy cane clutched in her smile with a bird on it! The snow white bird I sprinkled with German Glass glitter. The moon face also has glitter, but a sugary looking kind that is superfine and opaque! Like snow,..or a really good sugar cookie! Her party hat has a little "Merry Christmas"sign/ornament hung from it. The trim on the hat is a lush faux white fur. Bright Blue eyes! Also offered on STJ this month are the following ornaments and tree toppers! These two have a few brothers and sisters on eBay this week! Such glitter and bling!! I love up close shots,..where they become so monumental! Here is the Moon King Tree Topper,.. His little bow tie is just too cute,...
and a beautiful crescent moon tree topper,...
And here is a Wise Man, no,..a Wise Moon,..bearing a gift! He is a candy container or gift box all rolled into one. He is mounted on the lid of a gift box,..and a smaller gift could be tucked inside!
These may be the last Christmas items available from me addition to what is still on eBay, here to see my listings. Then I have a few orders to wrap up, and then I am going to be painting for a while when I am in the studio. My sister and I have new projects to begin that will start in early 2011. More of our painted mirrors called trumeaus,..and I am getting a kiln in January! That means real clay production now!! Until then, I can't wait to settle in and enjoy Christmas with the family! It sure does come and go wicked fast. I plan on making lots of Christmas cookies and treats,..more gifts for family,..and having as much cozy fun as possible with my tribe.
Merry Christmas,..Happy Winter Solstice,...and may your year's end be Merry and Bright!

A Christmas Variety!!

This Crimson King Skelly Lamp replete with glittered crown ends December 7th on eBay!

He is fantastic lit in the dark!

And down below,..I fell in love with making these one day, started and couldn't stop! There is a whole crew of smiley Snowmoons and Snowmen,..and a Snowgirl too! A few of these are still in progress,...a few more available on eBay! I love the old timey vintage ornaments with the chenilelegs and arms,....hence this fun tangent,...

Here are a few that ended up painted and listed on eBay this week...

My old standby! I LOVE this one's face! Don't really know if I care to part with him...but he is on eBay too! He is so happy!
A hanging Candy Cane Star Ornament,..

And a matching Snow Moon,..candy cane in mouth!

I made two Moon King Tree Toppers,..both are sold, is one...
(I am making more of these!)
Here they are!!
And some more of the jolly little snowguys,...

And a crescent moon tree topper and stars,..

Here you can see the dramatic difference in scale...

Happy Moons! Large Moon Lanterns,..15" and 16" deep!!

Another shot,..I just love this picture for some reason.

That's all from my neck of the woods this week! Hope your holidays are happy!
