Make It Monday: Etched Glass Thanksgiving Dinner Plates, and Snowflake Wine Bottle

It was a beautiful, cool, day today, in FL, finally! It gave me time to finish up some projects I started a few weeks ago. The first item, will be a pre-order item in my Etsy shop. The plate shown, has a tiny mistake, so is just for pics. I have two more plates to etch the image into the plate. That is why it is a pre-order. First person to order will get them both, unless I can get more of the glass dinner plates, then I can do more pre-orders. Perfect for Thanksgiving for 2, or as a serving plate. The pilgrims are so adorable. I did a large glass jar with this same image, that is already available in my shop.

 The second item would make a great Christmas gift. It is a blue wine bottle, cork and seal still in place. I etched on the words Tis the Season, with snowflakes etched into the glass all around the bottle. You could open it and put wine in it, if you are a wine maker that would be fabulous. Or give as is, and let the receiver choose what to do with it. New baby blanket in the works, and I have at least 2 holiday wreaths I want to get done. Not sure I will make it by Christmas, lol. It is coming so fast now. This time of year I do more glass etching, and wood working, rather than jewelry and painting items.

Make It Monday: Getting Ready for Winter

As you can see, here in FL, it is no where cold enough for a scarf, still averaging 100 degrees, in October, bleh! Anyway it is cooler weather somewhere, and I just fell in love with the colors of the yarn I used to make this scarf. It is a real beauty, and perfect for Fall fashion colors. Still on the subject of cooler weather, I started a new project of a crochet ornament cover. I was at my Mom's the other day, and she had found a really cool vintage crochet pattern book at a yard sale. There were two different ornament cover patterns, and I started the first one today. Ooh those tiny crochet needles are a killer, but stay tuned to see how it comes out. The scarf is for sale in my Etsy shop, and it can be made in other colors, and types of yarn, very quick in two days, after yarn is found.
