I'M BACK IN THE MOOD

I know it's very hot and a bit early to start thinking of the snowy, cold winter-time, but I'm in the holiday spirit. My Glitz and Glam station is a wonderful place to create on a hot summers day. It cool and comfortable. So I thought I would start making a few new Christmas treasures for you.

"Mary Christmas" is the first wreath in my new line of smaller, more affordable, one-of-a-kind, themed wreaths. I just love the way this came out. It is about half the size of my large wreaths (22-24"dia), but has just as much charm and treasures. At approximately 12" diameter, "Mary Christmas" is perfect to place on a photo stand mixed in and amongst your other holiday treasures, or hung on a wall during the holiday season.

She will arrive safe and sound at your home covered with a light dusting of vintage mica snow and a touch of glitter. I know you will just love her. If you would like to order one similar, please email me directly and I will do my very best to make one up with a lovely "Lefton" holiday figurine.

Keep cool and enjoy the holiday treasures I have posted for your pleasure.

"Mary Christmas Wreath"

I love the smaller wreaths! They are so pretty. May I ask how you attach the items. I made a Easter wreath using hot glue but the items are falling off over time. Is there a better glue to use to attach items in your experience?
