Christmas is Coming..

Hand Painted Glass Ornaments
Yes, I said it.  Christmas IS coming, and faster than I would like. In fact, I have had this first round of painted glass ornaments ready to upload to Etsy for several weeks now but I couldn’t quite make myself do it.  I think because I am not exactly sure where the year has gone.  Wasn’t it January just a week ago?  It feels like it.  So, like it or not, the year is certainly marching on and before you know it, December will be here.  It’s less than 4 months until Christmas now.  And so, I had to finally avail myself of the approaching 12th month and upload my painted glass ornaments to Etsy, finally.    Colors, colors, colors, I must say that is what appeals to me the most about these decorations.  That and the fact that they are glass, because I love the way glass gives a sheen and vibrancy to paint.  I got to play with various combinations of color with these ornaments, but I think the blues and purples are my favorite.

I am not attracted to them for their ability to be a Christmas decoration, because they do not have to hang from a tree. I have seen wonderful arrangements of glass ornaments placed thoughtfully into bowls, baskets and the like.  So really, they can be displayed in any manner that appeals to you, and any time of the year. 

I’m not ready to start playing Christmas music, but I am ready to make some more of these colorful glass decorations.  And I suppose, I need to start thinking about my gift giving list. Where did this year go?
