I captured a picture of the three pomegranate buds so that will be the pic of the day. I hope they all bloom at once. Rainy and cold again today in Manchester, NH. Good time to stay in and get some projects done here in the studio. The rain is taking all the leaves down at once so when they dry out some there will be much raking to do around Glenna's Garden. Lately I have been making some Spring things I will also put up a pic here of some very cute clippies I made for Spring 2010. Yes I am still doing Christmas supply gathering and ready for Thanksgiving. Check out the studio shop at www.gnormyle.etsy.com

We have more rain today and it's cool here in Manchester, NH. I am soooo excited there are actually 3 small buds on the pomegranate bush here at Glenna's Garden studio. I will get pics and share them on here when they are bigger because they are teeney tiny right now. I did a major reorganization of my supplies today. I need to get some storage containers. I listed this ACEO I made "Taking It To The Edge" in my shop yesterday. It is from Quilter's Delight, a box set of booklets designed with a quilter in mind. Good day to stop by Glenna's Garden at www.gnormyle.etsy.com for many items shipping is included for free.

We had so much rain up here in Manchester, NH yesterday something like 3". It strips the trees of their beautiful leaves. It poured all day long. Good day for shopping. This morning it is bright and sunny but I am sure it is cold too. My pomegranate plant appears to have two itsy bitsy blooms popping out again where the others have all been. This should be pretty I hope they take so I can get some pics to share. I am looking forward to making different items for Thanksgiving and Christmas in the next couple of weeks. I have picked up some great stuff to work with including watercolors. Currently I am running a free offer for a PIF (pay it forward)surprise. Limit one per household. Check it out at www.gnormyle.etsy.com Glenna's Garden shop.

Today I received a package from my sister. In it was a lot of my Mother's and her Mother's jewelry....oh and my baby ring too which barely fits onto the end of my pinkie finger. I found a Monet bracelet and a Miriam Haskell necklace. Antique jewelry and pieces from foreign countries. I have so many great memories flowing through my mind right now. I took pictures of everything. I would have to say the Miriam Haskell necklace is my favorite. So that is why I am sharing a picture of it here. It has purple in it and that is my favorite color. I see these necklaces listed for close to $200.00, they are vintage and I am keeping mine. The Monet bracelet too.

Check out www.madquiltinglibrarian.blogspot.com Such late notice but I just found Meg and she is offering a giveaway by sharing a jelly roll of Christmas fabric all set. Very lovely! Her contest ends tonight 12 PM Eastern time. My baby pomegranate plant has a flower again. This time I will be able to press it and use it in some creative endeavour. Last time I created an ACEO miniature art work with the first flower. That ACEO is for sale at Glenna's Garden shop www.gnormyle.etsy.com I had a bud drop the second time so all was lost. Now this will be a third one I can actually use. The flower is a gorgeous dark orange. I have taken a couple of pictures of the latest flower to share with everyone.

It is early in the morning here at Glenna's Garden in Manchester, NH and pouring rain. Sweet sounding and soothing....my other computer crashed a few days ago. I finally got this laptop I have to run well. Yesterday I downloaded some pictures to this computer. I say this because I have lost a lot of pictures in the crash of the other computer. SAD about that! Now I am back up and running. I posted a new item in my shop so I will be sharing that as the picture of the day here. FALL is gorgeous here right now. My favorite trees nearby are slowly changing. I have been busy getting supplies to transition from Fall to winter. I am listing items for sale slowly to see what sells. It would be so great if I ever made it to the front page of ETSY, one day I tell myself. Well it looks like I am on track with all of the work I am putting into studying marketing on my own and with my knowledge of business especially small business I have now it definately helps. I now have a rubber stamp for Glenna's Garden. It is all part of certain things you need to have to be successful. Next I will working on a logo. G G with flowers around it and viney would be perfect. I have no experience with creating logos so I will search for that person on ETSY. The picture of the day is a fun ACEO I created depicting russian nesting dolls.
