Hello! Just thought I would FINALLY update my progress on my new hand painted pendants that I posted about in this post waaaaay back in February! I have been so busy getting things organized and finnished on the home front, that I just couldn't get my act together to list them in my shop.

Well, without further ado, here they are:

Ta da!

I can see the finnish line....

I have LOTS of new work to list and share here, but first, I wanted to stop in this weeked and share some breaking news: I am finally moving into my NEW masterbedroom addition! Yay!

It has been a long year of ups and downs, but I can finally rest my head in a comfy spot reserved just for hubby and I on our private third floor master bedroom. I won't share all just yet, after all, I've only just moved up here and there are tons of details to finnish, but here's a sneak peek:

This long bright hallway will soon feature a floor-to-ceiling glass wall, a feature I had in mind from the beginning of the design process and had to fight for more than a few times during construction.

The bed and the wall behind it still need some work, but I have to say it's sooooooo great to have a bed again after three months of sleeping on a mattress on the floor.

This shadow box with gold framing once belonged to my grandmother, then my mother, so I really want to make it a focal point in the room. For now, it sits atop my dresser and holds some of my jewellery and nail polish.

I haven't had a full length mirror in th house since we purchased it (7 years ago, eep) so I figured this corner of the room was the perfect locale (and I just love how it reflects the light here).

This ledge (which sits just to the right of the bed) was one of many "decisions on the fly" during this process. I had to make it work as we had to cover up some plumbing pipes for our NEW master bathroom. Not what I had in mind, but now it's a great art ledge and spot for my brid cage/jewellery stand.

so thrilled to finally have a room of our own!

I'll be back soon to share some more pics, including the masterbath and office, oh and some great new work too:)

I hope that you are somewhere warm, bright and cosy this weekend. xxoo Penny.

This weekend I was able to steal some time in the studio which felt like an incredibly good break from the chaos that has become my life in renovationg purgatory.

I snapped a few photos, just to document and remember how lucky I am to have the chance to work with my hands when my mind is bursting with to-do lists, shopping trips, decisions, decisions, decisions.....

I hope to update in a few days when these screen printed, then hand painted pendants and rings will be in the shop (fingers crossed that all goes well in the kiln).

I hope that you were somewhere wonderful doing what you love this weekend too. Penny xxoo.

New Bohemian In The Shop Today

I've been so busy listing new things in the shop, I haven't have the chance to stop by and say hi. The new year is turning out to be a whirlwind at our house with our house renovations coming to an end (soon, fingers crossed!).

In the meantime, while I anxiously await my new bedroom (yay!) I have been a busy bee in the studio trying to keep my mind off the progress two floors above. Here are just a few one of a kind bohemian style necklaces that I listed in the past week:

I do hope that you'll stop by and take a peek.

New Winter Fields Necklaces

As promised, I'm back to share a quick photo of a new series of necklaces that have been listed in the shop today (yay!)

The Winter Fields series was inspired by long winter walks and whispy, moody landscapes that get lit up brightly by the reflection of sunlight on snow.

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ― Lewis Carroll

New Year, New Penny Glass Girl.

Hello friends. I really hope that you enjoyed your holiday as much as I did this year. I am truly beside myself with gratitude for the friends and family that surround me in times like these, making this a holiday that I will remember for the truly laid back times, slow cooking, chatting over many cups of tea and rummaging through the snow banks (finally, snow in Toronto!).

This year, I feel especially re-energized and so ready to get back to work. MY well-rested brain is brusting with new ideas and my notebooks are full to the brim with pieces that must get made. I have already begun listing some new spring pieces in the shop last night and hope to continue doing so as the week progresses. I do hope you can find the time to drop by Penny Glass Girl for a peek.

New Fly Away pendant series.
