GIT (glitterfairy in training), Michelle!

Meet my wonderful new Wilton High School Intern, Michelle!

I am thrilled to have another set of hands here in the studio.
She will be designing, organizing and helping 
with the manufacturing of our glittergoods.
As you can see, she is already into the paint 
and will be glittering soon!

I hope to teach her all about running a cottage business 
and, of course,
how to be a GIT, aka, "glitterfairy in training"!

Welcome, Michelle!

My newest collection...

Designed exclusively for The Kennebunkport Resort Collection,
these will be available soon at The Tides Beach Club, Hidden Pond, 
The Cottages at Cabot Cove and The Kennebunkport Inn.

Each venue has it's own set of glittery ornaments.  

Now visitors may take a bit of their Maine vacation home with them...

If you are looking for a VERY special place to stay in Maine, 
check out these lovely resorts 

and tell them The Glitterfairy sent you!



Peonia perfection...

I rescued these voluptuous and obscenely beautiful posies 
from the rainstorm this afternoon...

Each one is more exquisite than the next,
and now the house smells divine!  

The first peonies of the season are always the best!

I'm sure there must be peonies in heaven...


More of my eggcellent Pet Talk Adventure!

Fun, fun and more fun!

Sneaky Preview of Pet Talk Show's Easter Eggstravaganza!!!

Don't we look cute in matching bunny ears???

I always have sooooooo much fun with 
the adorably wonderful Lauren Collier!
We had some fab Easter fun today 
taping her Pet Talk show for next weekend 4/8 & 4/9/12.

I had a lot to set up...This segment was especially enjoyable...
but I can't let the cat out of the bag...
er... I mean the Easter Bunny out of the basket...
You'll just have to wait 'til Saturday or Sunday to see what we created!

Tune in to New Channel 12's 
Pet Talk with Lauren Collier on Easter weekend.
Check your local listing for show times...


Fri(hens) with benefits...

I was thrilled to be asked to babysit my friend's chickens yesterday,
and I got to keep the results!
Check out these gorgeous eggs!
It's kind of hard to see the subtle colors, 
but the shades of cream, pink, brown and yes, 
that gorgeous Aracauna blue are beyond beautiful...

This is only the second time in my life 
that I have possessed real, fresh, still warm hen's eggs...
an indescribable treat!
Should I eat them this very minute???
I might just have to save these beauties and blow them out 
so I can enjoy them forever!


Happy (almost) Love Day...

Two of my newest cards to celebrate LOVE...(sigh)...

I love mixing gorgeous, vintage images 
with my (often twisted...ahem!...) words.

These cards are simple and simply beautiful.



GlitterCards at Dovecote!

Got a chance to snap a quick shot of my card display 
at Dovecote, in Westport, CT.

Don't they look wonderful???

I am so thrilled that they are in such a prominent place in the shop, 
which is absolutely brimming with amazing things!

Stop by and pick up a sweet Valentine's Day card for your lovey...
or a birthday card for the "Queen of everything", 
or a "thank you" for that special friend...
and tell them the glitterfairy sent you!


Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The Families to Families Boutique at Trackside was a huge success! 

We sold lots of glittergoods, gave (and received) lots of  hugs 
and took enough orders to keep us busy 'til Christmas eve!!!! 
(and we got to debut our fab new aprons, embroidered by SignatureStyle)
 I am always amazed at how our town supports artists 
and small businesses. 

The mix of vendors was such fun...Gorgeous handmade Signature 
Collection and grainsack bags from Sharp Hill Designs, whimsical hats, 
pillows and scarves (all made from repurposed sweaters) 
from Bev's Boilers, Witchipoo's fab jewelry 
and shawls,  Nancy Geany's  handmade quilts, banners and aprons, 
stationery from A Flood of Paper and, of course, 
tasty delights from Scoops 
and artisanal chocolates from Sweet Pierre's
And that's just a few of the delightful vendors 
who came out to support a good cause, 
Wilton's own Social Services.

Marie, the show organizer, grabbed my heartstrings 
when she asked us to remember how cold our homes got 
a few weeks ago when we lost power 
due to a freak storm.  
She then asked us to imagine it being that cold 
(or much colder) ALL of the time 
because we didn't have money for fuel!  
It may not be obvious to the casual onlooker, 
but there are over 125 families 
in our town who are struggling...who need our help. 
Money raised from baked goods sales and the auction 
will go directly to help those families.

So, it was a fantastic day all around and Pamfairy and I 
thank you for coming out and supporting us...
It was such fun to see you all...

Yes, even the glitterfairy plays hookey once in a while...

There I am, right in the front row with wonderful friends, 
20 feet away from Regis and Kelly! 
(Thank you soooo much Ann, for the VIP seats!) 
And what fun we had!
Regis and Kelly were so lovely to the studio audience, 
and during breaks, shook hands and chatted.
They even posed for pictures with us after the show!

(I don't get into NY nearly often enough, and though 
this is my busy season, I couldn't miss this fun day.)  

I was then treated to a marvellous lunch 
at Fiorello at Lincoln Center (THANK YOU, Ann!!!), 
we strolled thru Central Park admiring the colorful foliage,
did some window shopping along Fifth Avenue, 
inspected Harry Winston's fab jewels...ahem!...,
saw the tree going up at Rockefeller Center,
then headed back to the glitter mines...
What a wonderful and memorable day...

I love playing hookey...


Find your Signature Style...

Just installed our newest holiday display in a 
fabulous new shop, right in the center of Wilton, CT, 
Signature Style

Mary and Ann have assembled an amazing collection 
of home decor, apparel and gifts, all of which 
can be personalized with monogramming.
It would take an entire page to list all of the fabulous things 
one can find there, but I will try to give you a taste.

You will find outstanding gifts for...
 hostess, housewarming, bridesmaids, 
groomsmen, teachers, baby, Valentine's Day, anniversary, 
birthday, beach house, holiday and every other imaginable occasion.
You will also discover gorgeous sweaters, jammies, jewelry, 
bags, totes, bowls, trays, frames, blankets and pillows...
The list goes on and on...

And now...
you can also find glittergoods from
yours truly, theglitterfairy, including
glittered sea critters, seastars, "sparklers" monogram letters,
peace on earth globe ornaments
(with a map-pinned flag locating our lovely town of WILTON)
and our newest ornaments,
(a limited edition) 
personalized glass ornaments,
tricked out with words handwritten in glitter 
and luxurious Midori ribbons.
We will customize each one for you...
with your child's name, your monogram, 
cheers!, diva, merry merry, bah humbug!, 
or whatever sentiment you can think up!

Yes, they are fabulous!
And yes, we are already taking orders...

Better get one before they sell out!

So...stop by and tell them the glitterfairy sent you...

Glittery hugs...


Dare to be different!

Sweet images of The Cape remind me... 
"Don't be afraid to be a little outside of the box, 
march to your own beat---forge your own beautiful path."
Must pass this on to my kids...


Memorize this...

Happy last day of summer...

This was the very first year that we managed to outsmart the deer!
Our hydrangeas were kindly (and gloriously) allowed to bloom.
What a divine gift from nature!

(FYI- "Hydrangea" is the botanical name for "deer food"! lol!)

Must keep this image in mind 
as the cold winds start to blow...





Two n(ewe) friends...

How do those spindly little legs hold all that fluff up?
One of the great mysteries of life...

Enjoyed these lovelies at the Bridgewater Country Fair.


The boss briefly awakens from a "cat nap"

Here at GlitterWorks, sometimes it is a bit of a 
challenge to get things done.  

Teddy likes work, but he prefers to sleep upon it 
rather than to actually do work!  
And he does his very best to keep me from doing it, too!

Time for another nap!
(A demure little fellow like Teddy needs his beauty rest...)

Gotta luv him....
