2011 Holiday Gift Guide Day 9 - Made In Washington Giveaway



Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a Christmas tree decorated with ornaments.  Ornaments are what really makes the Christmas tree stand out and gives it personality.  Every year I try to get atleast one new ornament to add to my collection,  so this year I lucked out when Made In Washington offered to send me one of their ornaments to review. Not only do they offer ornaments,  but they also offer Gourmet Food,  Artisan Chocolates,  Glass Art Gifts,  Smoked Wild Salmon,  and plenty of other great items that would make perfect gifts for Christmas.  Finding what your looking for is a breeze while shopping on Made in Washington because you have the option of searching by occasion,  artist/vendor,  or theme.


Made in Washington was founded in 1984 when Gillian and Jack Mathews opened the first Made in Washington store in Seattle's Pike Place Market.  Today,  they have expanded their business to five stores throughout Puget Sound.  They offer a wonderful variety of the best of Washington states food,  art,  and lifestyle.  Their high quality products combined with their excellent customer service makes Made in Washington,  a fabulous place to shop. 



Made in Washington provided me with one of their wonderful ornaments to review.  I received a hand blown glass ornament from their Round ornaments collection.  Besides round ornaments,  they also offer heart ornaments,  2011 limited edition ornaments,  raindrop ornaments,  teardrop ornaments,   designer series,  and fused ornaments.  With a selection of over 45 round beautifully crafted ornaments,  you are sure to find one that will tickle your fancy.  I received the Hand Blown Abalone Glass Ornament to review.


This glass ornament I received is more like a piece of art!  You know all the beautiful colors of abalone,  well you definitely see it in this wonderful ornament.  Upon first glance you can tell that it was professionally made by a talented artist. The colors are eye catching and really grabs your attention.  It came with a artist card celebrating Glass Eye Studios hand crafted artisan approach.  For an added bonus,  all Glass Eye ornaments include ash from the eruption of Mount St. Helen's.  It's going to look beautiful hanging on our Christmas tree this year and it would look great on yours too!




BUY IT:  You can purchase the Hand Blown Abalone Glass Ornament for $24.99 on Made In Washington.

I have to admit that my major weakness is Christmas ornaments. I want them all and that is not an exaggeration. I am currently trying to refurbish my glass ornaments. The cats have all taken their toll on my glass ornaments and I have one of this and one of that. I don't want the plastic ones I see in the stores (UGLY!) ut_oh_its_kim@hotmail.com

My favourite Christmas Ornament is one that you put a small picture in. Ths one has a picture of my first dog in it. It's my favourite because it's a picture of her, and because it was a gift from my sister.
