Believe In Blessings

LARGER IMAGE
  Believe In Blessings - $9.00

We are blessed every day in one way or another and this wall hanging attests to that! The background is crackled to give it an old and peeling paint look. The highlight on the berries is the base color, so all you need to do is add the shading. Add a few wooden stars or other embellishment and this piece will welcome everyone to your blessed home!

A Penny Autumn

LARGER IMAGE
  A Penny Autumn - $8.50

These plaques remind me of penny rugs, with the tabs at the bottom and "pennies" on top of those. Around the time of the Civil War, frugal homemakers would use scraps of wool or felted wool from clothing, hats, blankets, etc. to create "rugs" or mats using circles, hence the term "penny rug". Updated versions of penny rugs feature fun decorations cut into shapes from felted wool, then stitched onto another piece of wool, etc. Perfect to adorn your seasonal tree.

The Red Rose and The Briar

LARGER IMAGE
  The Red Rose and The Briar - $9.00

I have loved the Irish ballad, "Barbara Allen", for decades--it's sad, but lovely as well. It tells the story of sweet William, who is dying, and sends for Barbara Allen, who treats him poorly. On the way home, she realizes what she has done and hears the "death bell knelling". She soon dies, probably of a broken heart, knowing how she hurt William. They are buried near each other in two different cemeteries. "The Red Rose and the Briar" is based on this lovely song and especially the last two verses: "They buried William in the old church yard and Barbara in the new one; And from William's grave there grew a rose, from Barbara's a green briar. They grew and grew in the old church yard, 'til they could grow no higher. And there they tied in a true lover's knot, the red rose and the briar".

The background of this design is a celtic knot of sorts, weaving in and out. The briar rose on the right has a lot of thorns, representing Barbara, and red rose is for William. The stem is tied in a lover's knot above.

Star of Bethlehem

LARGER IMAGE
  Star of Bethlehem - $9.00

When I looked at these ornaments, with the cut-out star and snowflakes, I saw a soft, peaceful, winter scene and wanted to create a visual story. The center ornament has the "Star of Bethlehem" and the sheep are gazing at it, looking for the Lamb of God. I wanted a soft, peaceful, serene, ethereal look and used soft pastels to create this look. Oh and, of course, there is glitter involved!
