December Offerings...

Be merry all, be merry all,
With holly dress the festive hall;
Prepare the song, the feast, the ball,
To welcome merry Christmas!”

Christmastide Framed Sampler

“Christmastide” is a humble little sampler that captures the peace, joy, and magic I feel during this most profound season. Peaceful sheep, a gentle snowfall, magical reindeer, and wood smoke curling from the chimney of a happy home on Christmas Eve!  Framed in an old woodsy frame that has been painted and given a finish of dark wax.  A section of the leaf in the lower right corner is missing, but I rarely find one of these frames with all leaves intact, and if you know me at all, you know I have a soft heart for things old and worn. Framed under glass and with wire on back for hanging.  Frame dimensions at the widest are 14”w x 12.5”h.

Ruby & Grandmother Primitive Dolls

“It was dreadfully cold. The snow was falling and it was almost dark on the last evening of the old year.” So begins Hans Christian Andersen’s poignant story, “The Little Matchgirl”. ‘Tis a tale of a poor little girl who must sell matches to help her family. Failing to sell them & bitterly cold, she begins to light them to keep warm and envisions beautiful things – steaming roast goose, a warm, brightly polished stove, & lastly her dear, dear grandmother… 

Andersen’s fairytale was the inspiration for this pair of primitive dollies. Each is rag-stuffed and mounted on an old textile bobbin.  Little Ruby has a trio of hand-dipped wax lantern lights in her apron pocket.  Grandmother measures 21”h and Ruby is 17”h.  Sold as a set (of course, they must stay together!).
