                      The Boca Raton Historical Society will sell ornaments by Barbara Montgomery O’Connell this season.


 

Two new commemorative glass ornaments will debut at the Boca Raton Historical Society’s Gift Shop Holiday Open House on Dec. 2 and 3.

The ornaments, designed by Boca Raton artist Barbara Montgomery O’Connell, include the house of pioneer Thomas Rickards on the Intracoastal Waterway, and the original IBM building, in honor of IBM’s 100th anniversary this year.

“I really enjoy painting buildings,” says O’Connell. “That’s my specialty.”
