I’m amid a big box & move-it project for the installation of wood floors on the first floor. And, I also need to begin preparing for the weekend show. I think that I will have two trees plus a full table … mixing antique, vintage and contemporary items. I’m planning to concentrate on “onsies” … things that just aren’t worth the time to list them online. I have a number of signed folk art pins and things, single ornaments from my collection etc. For example, I have a huge rolling bin of “extras”that I don’t think I’ve opened since about 2005! And, I have retail merchandise that has never made it online due to my extended illness. Look for lots of bargain pricing … I seriously need to downsize both personally and business-wise. Need a full size 7 ft pre-lit tree? Got one of those stored on the third floor of Apple Tree. I’ll make you a real deal if you can haul it away on Saturday! LOL

I will be bringing things that cover all 4 seasons. In other words, 365 days of the year!  Hope to meet you in Piqua!

America’sMart Premieres 2013 Ornament Collections

 

Thomas Glenn Holidays 2013 Debut

Thomas Glenn Display, Atlanta 2013

Shortly after Christmas 2012, ornament designers and companies from around the world gathered in Atlanta as AmericasMart debuted new holiday collections.

Christopher Radko, Joy to the World Collectibles, Christina’s World, JingleNog, Eric Cortina, Soffieria De Carlini, Kurt Adler Presents David Strand, Bethany Lowe Designs, Thomas Glenn, Mattarusky, Debbie Thibault, Inge-glas of Germany, Vaillaincourt Folk Art … familiar names to ornament collectors.

I’ve been in Atlanta for nearly a week and will be flying home to Ohio this afternoon. Of course, I found lots of beautiful and innovative designs for the coming year. Most won’t ship to designers until late summer.  Look for blog updates over the following week as I share what’s on the horizon for glass Christmas and holiday ornaments.

Below are four new designs or colorations from Thomas Glenn Holidays. Many will recognize the Thomas Glenn name from reading Celebrate365 magazine. Glenn is a contemporary artist who has extended his sense of style to holiday ornaments. In fact, one of his designs was featured in O Magazine.

Thomas Glenn New Styles 2013

Celebrate365 offers a selection of Thomas Glenn ornaments. Although many styles are sold out from the Christmas season, many delightful designs are still available.The Celebrate365 store will be offering the styles shown above for the 2013 holiday.

Christmas is Coming … #1

Christmas Cover, Front Christmas Cover, Back
The Holiday Issue is Coming … It’s at the printer in Erie, Pennsylvania with the final proof approved today.

Here’s sneak peek of the covers. Artist Michael Storrings created the art deco inspired cover illustration especially for this issue of Celebrate365. Santa flies through an art deco sky as his reindeer leap and bound, anticipating the task ahead. Non-traditional holiday hues –black, gray, white, gold, pink and fuchsia – lend a dreamlike quality and set the scene for the gift-filled morning to come.

Inside the Issue:

  • Meet Joellen Church, Landmark-Creations ornaments
  • Christopher Radko writes about how to decorate your dream tree.
  • All Decked Out for the Holidays, a century of change
  • Behind the Design with Maggie’s Memories
  • della Robbia, a Renaissance-Inspired Williamsburg Tradition
  • Pages and pages of Christmas-themed ornaments and folk art

Remembering a World-Class Collector

Dunwoody, Georgia

Margaret Horner Feit, an Atlanta native, passed away peacefully on April 4, 2011 after suffering a brain hemorrhage while watching the Phillies play the Astros in their season opener.  She was 66 years old.  Born Margaret May Horner on May 23, 1945 in Atlanta, of Jack and Alice Horner, Margaret was a lively child who enjoyed music, animals and watching and playing sports.  She had two children, David and Shelley in the 1960’s who lived near their mother in Atlanta.

Margaret was an innovative businesswoman and owned Jackson Associates, a local data collection firm, from 1983 to 2006.  During her career, she served as the President of the Atlanta Southeast Chapter of the Marketing Research Association, and worked on various committees dedicated to promoting the marketing research industry.  Margaret was a true visionary who wasn’t afraid to take a risk.  In 1983, she bought Jackson Associates from the previous owner, Marilyn F. Jackson.  In 1992, she opened the largest focus facility in Atlanta near Perimeter Mall.  Over the next 15 years, Margaret transformed Jackson Associates into a multimillion dollar business.  She retired in 2006, after establishing herself in the marketing research industry as an entrepreneurial icon. Margaret mentored many young researchers who still impact the marketing research industry today.

She was passionate about her family, baseball and Christmas. If Margaret wasn’t putting up a tree, or decorating her home with some of her famous glass ornaments, you could find her in the first row, third base side at Turner Field. She had a wicked sense of humor and was generous to a fault.  There were four sporting events she wanted to attend during her lifetime — the Olympics, the Final Four, a Super Bowl and a World Series. She managed to do all four as well as see the Braves win a World Series in 1995.

She is survived by her husband Mark, her son David Smith, his wife Sarah, David’s son Tyler and step-children Ryan and Autumn; her daughter Shelley Smith Avant, and her husband Ken and their three children, Alison, Stephen and Kevin; her sister Anne Horner and partner, Rosie Willmot; and her beloved cats, Bonny and Clyde.

Family and friends will celebrate Margaret’s extraordinary life at the Olgethorpe Presbyterian Church on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at 3 pm.
