There is nothing that will get you in the holiday spirit quicker than NYC this time of year. The lights glowing on a scale so much grander than anywhere in the world, the window displays that you just can't help but press your nose to the glass to get a tiny bit closer, the bustling streets, holiday music in every store... it seems like the entire city is just in a magical place and anything is possible. I am heading there this weekend to inject myself with a dose of this holiday magic and fill myself with holiday inspiration.
One local holiday event I look forward to every year is the holiday studio sale of Summer Glass which took place this past Sunday. Showcasing just some of the talents from Mystic's own Rebecca Berthiume, her studio sale is where I stock up on the most whimsical and fun glass ornaments, gift toppers, sun catchers, garden ornaments, picture frames and the like. Here are just a few of her creations that adorn my home. I have been collecting for years and have acquired such a fabulous collection, I now find myself rotating different pieces for seasonal decor. Sold nationally in independently owned shops and exclusive catalogs, you can now also bring home her creations from the artist herself. Call 860.536.1757 for more information.
