began painting original songbird ornaments in 1991. The ornaments became
an instant success and she immediately began receiving requests for custom
painted ornaments. Alanna responded to these requests by adding a "sportsman"
and "custom" category of ornaments which could be tailored
to individual needs. Ornaments are frosted glass and are painted
with acrylic artist colors. All ornaments, unless otherwise noted,
are sold at a cost of $25.00 each. The categories presently include:
Songbirds: As noted above, the songbird
collection began in 1991 with Alanna's painting of a Black-capped Chickadee. Each
year Alanna adds a new and different songbird to the
2004 Alanna began adding a scenic background to the birds and also started
numbering the collection.
Sportsman: The sportsman collection features a
number of game birds, ducks and geese and was created in response to
customers who were avid sportsman or who wanted to give a sporting theme
ornament as a gift to a friend or family member.
has created custom ornaments for many occasions and representing many
types of birds, animals and pets. A few of
the "traditional" types of ornaments created for weddings,
baptisms, babies first Christmas, and birthdays are represented by the
samples pictured on this site. The ornaments pictured are meant
as samples of designs frequently requested. Please contact
Alanna to discuss ideas that you might have for a personally
unique custom ornament.
