The lovely - and extremely multi- talented - Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime
is hosting this very festive blog hop. I was so lucky to finally meet Sally at ArtBliss this past September - she is truly a sweet lady and I am convinced that there is not an art medium out there that she CANNOT do---and do well!
Sally has paired the participants with a parnter, and each person creates a handmade ornament, to include an art bead. I was paired with lamp work bead maker Pam Ferrari
. I LOVE lampwork beads - LOVE them. (Here is a link to Pam's wonderful Etsy shop
!) These are the beauties that Pam sent me.
|Pam not only wrapped her ornaments and sent a card, she gifted me these fantastic lampwork beads!|
|Look at these trio of Christmas beauties! Aren't they fantastic!|
|The cutest little snowman EVER! If you read my previous post, I am obsessed with Snowmen and have quite a few scatter about my house!|
|I love this angel - look at her wings!! And her halo! So sweet!|
|What is Christmas without a tree?? Look at the swirls in the green glass - and the bright ornaments! I love this tree!|
|Here is a picture of the Snowman in situ - I bought the handmade ornament hook from Mallory Hoffman (Rosebud101 on Etsy).|
|This could be my favorite picture - one of my little handmade Snowbabies staring at the tree...|
|Not the best lighting for this picture as it is 5:00 AM on Friday morning as I write this, but I have hung Pam's handmade ornaments on my "special tree" in my hallway. Each ornament is either handmade or given to me through the years.|
Many thanks to Pam for such beautiful ornaments! And a special thank you to Sally for hosting this very special blog hop!
Please be sure to visit all of the participants and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Those are adorable - a perfect Christmas collection...and I'm not coveting those beads one jot - is that my nose growing...!!!ReplyDelete
Amazing! LOVE that snowman & your 'special' tree is pretty awesome too :-)ReplyDelete
The ornaments you received from Pam are very cute and whimsical. I love the little snowman he is so cute. Enjoy looking at these cuties on your tree this year and years to come.
What a great collection of glass ornaments, maybe next year I will be able to creat something like that. Beautiful tree:-) Merry Christmas Patti, I hope we can get together soon!!ReplyDelete
Wow, I can't even pic a favorite! I'm with you, I love snowmen, but the angel is so very cute too! And that little Christmas tree is just inspired! Can't wait to see what you make with those beautiful beads....:)ReplyDelete
What a beautiful tree you have! Lovely ornaments. Pam is awesome and so generous. I just love the Christmas tree ornament but they are all great.ReplyDelete
What darling ornaments! I love that you have a special tree for special ornaments. Our living room tree is mostly decorated with ornaments that were given to us as gifts, made by our children when they were younger, or ones that have a special place in our hearts such as the vintage ones from my parents.ReplyDelete
How fun! beautiful ornaments, and gorgeous tree Patti!ReplyDelete
Patti, with the introduction you gave me i'm blushing bright red! You give me to much credit! Thank you so much for participating in the swap/hop! I can't believe all the beautiful glass that Pam sent you! You're a lucky girl! The lampwork beads are so pretty. I love your white Christmas tree, it makes me think of an old fashion Norman Rockwell scene.ReplyDelete
