This is my amazing sister-in-law Ana. She is amazing in many ways, but suffice it to say right now that she is so very special and AMAZING!!! She is a non-stop doer, tends a shop, Cypress Cove,Etc., in Ellicott City, MD with 2 friends, tends a beautiful house, solders charms and stained glass gorgeously, does custom work out the wazoo-can I say that and still remain polite and charming??? She is married to my oldest brother, and has 2 beautiful offspring in their 20's, and is grandmother to the gorgeous and smart little Baby 'N'.
A stained glass frame. (Sorry, I pulled these pics. from her site, and they won't enlarge here).
Stained glass design in an old window. She does custom orders, and also has repaired a few old pieces in her day.
A beautiful old cabinet. She takes these pieces and takes out the glass, putting in stained glass, or beveled pieces.
Ana does jewelry. She solders beautiful art charms and makes other jewelry as well. Just as her house is elegant, her work is also. She uses lead free solder, and silver in her jewelry makings. Alas, I tried to scan in a picture of some fab. charms of hers that I own, but my printer/scanner is not connecting at the moment, so I will post later.
Julie of Julie's Antiques and Collectibles, also of PJ's with her very funny husband Paul, has such great prices on their furniture and other items, that once you know where they are, you will always check them out first! Here's a two piece set that is well priced. PJ's also has dirt 'cheap' prices. Dealers go to them.
OK- So Ana just started up her blog, Cypress Cove Creations. She's really new at this , so please stop by and check out her new blog and say Hello. Her web space is called Cypress Cove, and her shop is Cypress Cove, Etc.. If you are in the Ellicott City, MD area, shoot her an email, or call for directions to check out the shop, and stop in at PJ's as well.
