Holiday Boutique Dates

In addition to my potpourri crafts I have glass ornaments blown in Europe in the 1980's.  These were made as collectibles and have most likely been discontinued.

There are three blue baby carriages for a boy's first Christmas, a number of frosted pine cones, angels, at least one St. Nicholas figure (one of my most favorites), several cornucopias and little purple Santa figures.

In addition, I have fabric ornaments that I made twenty-five years ago.  The fabrics were so much prettier then than what I have seen now that they are really pretty.  Some are hung on a small tree on my dining room table for display.
If you are local, you are invited.  Please contact me through mamm(@) (remove the parenthesis) and I will send you my address. And if you are not local, please visit my Etsy store at .

Please share with friends.  Shop early, shop often, shop Etsy.  We need you.  Thank you so much.

In the interest of fair disclosure, I have edited this post since earlier in the day to reflect the fact that one of my open house times is over and to correct the alignment of my glass ornament pictures.

Newest Christmas Products! I am so excited.

This year I have made three kinds of holiday potpourri. 

Christmas Blessings is an extension of the one that I made last year with the addition of calendula  and bachelor's buttons.  The yellow and blue flowers really make the mixture pop and I am so pleased.  Here is a photo
Christmas Roses is very similar but has more roses and more rose oil.  It is available in Burgundy bags and in red potpourri hoops shown here

The hoops can be hung as a decoration anywhere, not just on a Christmas tree, but also in a cubicle, or in your car!

The third mixture is called Peace Potpourri.  It is intended for use year round so I have left out the balsam and bayberry with their specific Christmas reference and also made it more universal and ecumenical by taking away the Marian and specifically Christian references found in the other two.
Here it is depicted

With the blue and white and gold ribbons this might even be appropriate for Hanukkah.  The balls have holes at the tops to allow the scent to escape.

All three mixtures are available in all three formats, sachet bags, hoops, and potpourri balls.

The first two are posted on my Etsy shop

The last one will be coming soon.

Thank you!
