I have enjoyed painting and glazing my ceramic pieces so much over the years, that I've decided to share this opportunity with my customers and friends. So several months ago I began adding a small number of listings in my Etsy shop for unfinished ceramics.
The first piece I listed was a nativity set.
I was fortunate to sell this one around Christmas.
Since then I've listed several more unfinished ceramic items. One of my favorite listings is for these little unicorns.
It's Spring and time to be enjoying your outside space! What can you do to make it even more enjoyable? Well, you could put a new fountain in your yard, like this lovely fountain featuring metal calla lilies!!
It is 14 7/8" x 14 7/8" x 12 1/2" high; vase: 4" x 4" x 9 3/4" high and made of Iron and glass. The tapered glass vase in the center is surrounded by six glass candle cups waiting to be filled with your favorite scented or unscented votive candles. This candle stand will dress up your table beautifully!!!
Stop by Jill's Treasure Chest to see what other candle stands you can find for yourself or a special person in your life!
I recently obtained a new website filled with thousands of great gifts, home decor, collectibles, and more. This is something I've wanted to do for a long time, and finally was in the position and the right motivation for doing it.
My favorite group of items is the outdoor decor. I love all the little statues, plant stands, garden stakes, and fountains. But my very favorite is the wind chimes.
Several years ago I moved to a 5 acre lot with a double wide mobile home. We had a well with an electric pump. It was really lovely there and I knew we would all be very happy.
Until the ice storm which took out our power for a week. Tree branches were heavy with ice and broke, breaking the power lines. The power lines themselves were so icy that they became heavy and stretched out so the lay on the roads. Even the wind chimes I'd placed on the patio had frozen and were silent in the cold.
We spent that week trying to stay warm and fantasizing about hot showers streaming down over us, steaming up the bathroom mirrors.
One morning I awakened to that familiar tinkling sound of my wind chimes blowing in the breeze. It took me a moment to realize what that meant. The temperature had risen above freezing and the ice was melting. The power was restored later that day.
The gentle sound of wind chimes has remained a sign of comfort and well being. That sound that says everything will be alright.
Jill"s Treasure Chest has several wind chimes that can create that same sense of peace for you.
I wanted to show off my new trivet. It is glazed a luscious peach color and has a tree hand painted over the unfired glaze in brown, with a black outline and off white highlights. I think it came out rather nice!!
