Hello November!!!

It seems that this time of year ALWAYS gets my creative juices flowing!
The cooler temperatures and the changing of the seasons
makes my mind spin with all kinds of ideas.

Here are a few of the things that I've made lately.
It seems all of them are under glass for some reason!

Please be sure to check my Etsy store as a few things have
been listed in there and some of these items have already sold.

Does fall inspire you to create too???

Two altered apothecary jars with French labels
and other pretty embellishments!

This one is in my shop!!!

These have all sold but I just LOVED making these bird-inspired jars.
Nests, eggs and pieces of nature all captured under glass ~

And lastly, I've been making ornaments using 6" glass test tubes!
They are approximately 1" in diameter. I've added glitter snow,
a tiny bottle brush tree and other goodies to make a pretty Christmas ornament.
They can hang on a knob or on the Christmas tree!

And of course, loving natural elements, I had to try to make a few botanical test tubes.
They are my very favorites! I love drying flowers and other greenery
so I've made little gatherings for each test tube.

It's so nice to be able to use the things that you've been gathering and collecting.
I have dried flowers everywhere, stems from pretty bushes,
feathers and other fragments of nature to use.
But it seems when you place them under glass
it gives them a special kind of importance!

Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm doing and
I hope that I can inspire you to make something beautiful ~

hugs and love,

Dawn, what do you do to keep the “snow” from moving around in the tube. In other words..... when you give them as a gift, does the objects in the test tube move? Love you! E
