Frost has been carpeting the ground every morning, and we’ve been bringing in cedar & holly from the hillside to deck our halls.  We keep our fire going almost daily now, and I’ve been drying sliced oranges to add bursts of color to all the greenery.  I adore this season, when we work to cultivate comfort and warmth at a time when our world is a cold winter wonderland.

I’ve been catching glimpses of magical woodland creatures that have been preparing for this Christmas season, too, and I’m excited to share their winter world with you…fragrant with spices, illuminated by candlelight.

The photos below are a preview of what will appear in my Etsy shop on Tuesday – if you’re interested in purchasing anything, please visit my Etsy shop on Tuesday, December 12 at 10 am PST…and of course feel free to get in touch with any questions in the meantime!


Vignettes

Tiny glimpses into the world of Hearthstone Fables, these enchanting faery-sized Vignettes bring cheer and whimsy into a home’s every nook and cranny.  Tuck them behind the draping fronds of a fern, amidst dusty books on the shelf…miniature windows into a magical world, they enliven all of the sheltered corners at home.

Original Vignettes are hand-drawn, inked, and colored with colored pencils & white gel pen on toned paper, then framed in tiny frames.  They have been sealed with a fixative for extra protection.  The drawings vary in size (specifics will be listed in their respective Etsy shop listings) but are generally 2-3 inches tall.  They range from $40-$45 (plus shipping).

NEW for this update:
Very limited quantities of framed giclée prints of some Vignettes will be available!  Please read the Etsy titles and listings carefully: I’ve clearly marked which Vignettes are Originals and which are Prints.  Prints are available for $20 each.

Wassail Boxes

In a snow-covered studio in the silent winter woods, candles flicker behind frosted windows…fragrant mulled cider bubbles on the stove, and Owl – bedecked in bright holly – alights on the roof.

This Wassail Box bears with it this magical winter world: an assortment of wares to bring the comfort and warmth of Christmastide to you.

(“Wassail” is derived from the Anglo-Saxon term meaning “be well” or “be healthy”.  During Christmastide, a Wassailing Bowl for toasting would be carried from house to house while carols were sung.  From my studio to your home, I wish you a hearty “Wassail!” this Christmas season!)

5 boxes will be available

★ I’m so grateful to my friends Lauren of Olde Liberty Goodes and Heather of Waxing Moon Botanicals for providing beeswax treasures and mulling spices, respectively! ★

Here’s what you can expect to find in your Christmastide Wassail box:

Beeswax St. Nicholas: Made by Olde Liberty Goodes, this St. Nicholas ornament is made with 100% beeswax, scented with cinnamon and clove essential oils, and rolled in cinnamon. He holds a dried sprig of Sweet Annie!

Hand-Dipped Beeswax Tapers: These beautiful mini beeswax tapers were hand-dipped by Olde Liberty Goodes and can light the dark winter evenings for you. (Please always supervise burning candles and keep them away from flammables!)

Beeswax Art Ornament: This blackened beeswax frame was created by Olde Liberty Goodes and encircles a giclée print of my original drawing “Ancient Yuletide Carol.”

Mulling Spices: Crafted by Waxing Moon Botanicals, this warming blend of mulling spices brings with it the very taste and fragrance of the season. TO USE: remove the sticker from the bag and drop the bag into 2 quarts to 1 gallon of apple cider. Heat to a warm, sippable temperature and enjoy!

“Owl’s Wassailing Bowl” Vignette Print: Owl prepares for the Christmas season with his wassailing bowl, fragrant with spices… This is a giclée print of an original drawing on toned paper; it was created with archival Epson inks on Epson’s 100% cold press bright paper.

“Christmastide Chandlers” Greeting Card: This greeting card features a print of my original drawing on toned paper.  White envelope included.
