Send us photos of your Gibson Pewter. The gentleman who commissioned 64 Shrub Cups last year shared this photo. Incidentally, I sampled the rum shrub drink and enjoyed it. We’ll  post his recipe soon.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!

Jewelry makes great gifts, too.

Gibson Family Snowshoes

January seems to be flying by and that is not a bad thing. With near record amounts of snow in N.H. in January coupled with some VERY cold sub-zero days, one can’t help but begin to count the number of days until Spring(50+).

Post Christmas time off with my family was restorative and I am now rebuilding inventory and working on new designs for 2011. I usually introduce new product designs in early Spring so stay tuned in to the newsletters.

Pewter Muffin Earrings

The winner of our November raffle is Lauren Chapin, of Brooklyn, NY. She will be receiving our toasty warm Muffin Earrings to keep her warm for the holidays. Congratulations and Merry Christmas.

Ladybug Earrings

Marcia Ullman won a pair of our Ladybug Earrings in October. I guess ladybugs do contribute to good luck!

Each month, we select a winner of our monthly gift of a pair of Gibson Pewter Earrings. For November, we plan to gift a Stocking Ornament. Maybe this will prompt a family pewter ornament collecting tradition.
