Halloween shop update

Preview of Etsy Shop Update:
Wednesday, October 20 at 10 am PST

If you’ve followed my art journey for awhile, you probably know that Halloween (and the Hallowtide ‘triduum’ of All Hallows’ Eve, All Saints’ Day, & All Souls’ Day) is my absolute favorite holiday. I’ve always loved this liminal celebration for the way it invites us to remember the great unseen “cloud of witnesses” of which we are a part. It holds the tension of the past & the present, giving us an opportunity to playfully acknowledge mysteries that we often avoid confronting.

Adding to my love of Halloween is the good fortune we have of having a pumpkin patch, here on our diversified farm! So, the month of October is filled with the sights & sounds of our weeky Harvest Festival, complete with hot spiced apple cider, pumpkins on the vine, and all the wonderful autumn things. All of these things help to inspire the little stories that I like to tell through my art.

The photos below are a preview of what will appear in my Etsy shop – if you’re interested in purchasing anything, please visit my Etsy shop on Wednesday, October 20 at 10 am PST…and of course feel free to get in touch with any questions in the meantime!

(Due to high international shipping costs and long international shipping delays, I’m unfortunately not shipping internationally at the moment – I’m so sorry for the inconvenience. I always want to be sure your art gets to you in a timely, safe way! If you are an international friend and would like to purchase something from my shop once the update goes live, please message me on Etsy or send me a note through my web site – I’d be happy to look into getting accurate shipping info for you).


Vignettes

Tiny glimpses into the world of Hearthstone Fables, these enchanting fairy-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 whimsical world, they enliven all of the sheltered corners at home.

Vignettes are hand-drawn, inked, and colored with colored pencils & white gel pen on toned paper, then framed in tiny frames. The drawings vary in size (specifics will be listed in their respective Etsy shop listings) but are generally 2-3 inches tall, and each is between $40-$50 USD.

Trick-or-Treat Gift Box

This box provides you with the sights & scents to make you feel as if you just stepped in for mulled cider at the Hearthstone Fables studio on a blustery All Hallows’ Eve. I feel like art is best enjoyed with a cup of tea and some beeswax candles flickering, and you’ll find that atmosphere tucked into this box.

★ I’m so grateful to my friend Lauren of Olde Liberty Goodes for providing the beeswax treasures!

4 boxes will be available
