Aviary Delights and Holiday Treasures

There is a REAL MAGIC that surrounds this time of year!

When I remember the joyous moments of Christmases past,
I think about the excitement I felt as a child when my father
arrived home with that fresh-cut evergreen. This always
signified the beginning of the holiday season in our home.

After the fragrant tree was properly positioned in the living
room, mom would pull down a box of decorations from the
top shelf in the closet. My sister and I would carefully help
her unwrap delicate ornaments that we had made, such as
pipe cleaner candy canes, popsicle stick stars, glittered egg
crates turned into silver bells, along with Santas and snowmen
made of construction paper and cotton balls.

Each one a cherished treasure, and even though they were a
little worn or a lot worn for some, the evergreen always
shimmered and sparkled with our handcrafted artworks.

Oh, how I LOVED, every year, bringing home from school
some new decorative adornment. Mom made sure to give
it a place of honor, usually front and center on the
Christmas tree.

Although I have graduated from using egg crates, and
construction paper, those endearing memories are why,
even today, I find myself longing to create BEAUTIFUL
holiday ornaments to grace not only my own tree, but
also those of my friends and family.

I am THRILLED you have come to The Red Door Studio's
Etsy Holiday Open House
. My little shop has a limited number
of Glittery Aviary Delights adorned with Antique Glass Tear
Drop Crystals that are sure to PLEASE!

These hand-made treasures will only be available starting today
through Saturday, December 5th. There are also several other
wonderful new notecards and decorative tags that are on sale,
so be sure to browse.

I am also providing Free Gift wrapping, along with a
Free Snowflake Ornament and Free Limited Edition
Print for all Nature Inspired Book Orders made
during the Holiday Open House. Please contact me
directly at to purchase
a book.

And finally, for every purchase made, your name will be entered
in the Holiday Open House Giveaway. On December 6th, a winner
will be announced and that individual will win a Vintage "HOME"

My sincere wish is that these holiday ornaments, book,
and other treasures will be the perfect piece to decorate
your home, give as a gift, bring you joy, and perhaps
cause you to revel, if only for a moment, in the
MAGIC of the season.

Happiest of Holidays to you and yours!

I love the items in your shop - do you take orders from the UK? I'll have to check my bank balance as I have a heft dental bill to settle shortly. Ann from UK

Hi Tracey- looks like you've been busy. Your ornaments are gorgeous. We were supposed to move this week, but it got chaotic on friday, and it's been pushed off for two weeks. VERY stressful. I am longing to create, but all of my stuff is packed! So I went thrifting and picked up some old ornaments instead! xoxo
