Hand Painted Ornaments by Cathyann Burgess and A Christmas Dream
Warming up to the idea that the season of light and joy and hope is upon us, I tried to watch the lighting of the Christmas tree in New York City the other night and was disappointed with this year's entertainment. Must be showing signs of age, but I really was pining away for some music from my childhood. Not Gaga or the Goo Goo Girls.
I favor the crooners, among which Perry Como, is a favorite of mine. He always put smile on my face. My beloved grandmother used to love Perry Como and many a night I sat with her and enjoyed him.
I posted this song I found on You tube you might enjoy, too.
I also got into the mood, painting my birdies on some finished metal pieces I found, with acrylic and they turned into the delightful example above. They are 5inch round or 3x5 ovals. I am selling them for $20 each, and I only have 15 left (!) as when I took them out for market research, they began to sell. They really could be hung all year long, actually. But they could make a nice last minute hostess gift for the holiday, too. Here is one example and I will post two each day until I am done.
If you would like to purchase, send me an email and I will send you a paypal bill. It is really that simple. Free shipping, too.
You can see my display tree to the left.
