Glitter and Sparkle and Twinkle...

...Oh my!

I can't help it, this is such a magical time of year, I feel the need to share a little holiday sparkle with you....

I just pulled the two vintage style mixed media paintings off Etsy and listed them on eBay beginning at a (gulp!) very reasonable starting price, so do take a look....

And I have to share this new one - a memory or keepsake box, accented with diamond dust, and delicate snowflakes. I fell in love with the unusual shape of the box, but it was just crying out for whimsical little feet....*UPDATE* - sorry, this one is gone already, but I hope to paint another memory box before Christmas!


And finally, a Cosmic Catnip box - twinkly in its own way (lots of stars), but no glitter added to this one just in case it IS used for catnip. (*UPDATE* - sold. :)

Lots of new work coming soon too - I'm painting frantically these days, trying to complete as many pieces as possible before the holidays. Look for an ornament chest, a clock, and (soooooo excited about this one!) a Halloween themed nutcracker, hehe!! The ultimate holiday gift for the Halloween lover, yes?!

When I'm not painting, I'll be knitting up a few Christmas gifts, baking cookies and trimming the tree. Courtney is coming home for a few days, so I want everything to look magical - or at least as magical as it gets in a house that looks like a painter's studio exploded, lol....

Back in a couple of days with more goodies, and as promised a few photos of the rest of our furkids....

Until then, enjoy the magic of the season!!

Ooo, I could use a catnip box like that. How cool! I grew some really far out catnip this year and have it drying in the garage. Strongest stuff I've ever smelled!

Oh my, you sound like a busy elf! I have to admit that I'm really in the Christmas mood this year with all of our snow :+)

Beautiful pieces and I love the catnip box too!

Have a nice week,
Kristen
