Early Work Mercantile & the Ole Time Christmas Show

Hello Friends & Folk!
I have been working on some new items for the December 1st
update...

I will be offering hand drawn & colored, Fraktur-inspired tokens ~
framed under glass in my hand painted frames and done on my own hand-parched papers...

I get a lot of my inspiration from old children's books so I pulled out a few here...
I love how they look, feel & smell ~ the papers are so fragile & the illustrations so very quaint.

my color palette is reflecting a simple winter & holiday theme,
holly berry red
mistletoe green
north star gold...
faded, muted...beautiful mixed with the black ink from my pens...

watch for my online update later this evening.
AND
If you will be in the Fishersville, Staunton, Waynesboro Virginia area
Friday evening (December 2nd) 6 - 8:00 OR
Saturday (December 3rd) 9 - 3:00
Stop in at the Fishersville Expo Center for the Ole' Time Christmas Show!
Donna Smith from Southern Star Antiques puts on a great show and I'll be there with my handmaids, needlework supplies & patterns...some small antiques too...
it's a great show to put you in the mood & spirit of the Holiday!!

hope to see some of you soon ~
blessings from the farm,
Lori

Hi Lori!
Looks like you have mastered your Mac already! I really enjoyed seeing you again in your FABULOUS! Shop. I posted a little ditty about it last night on my blog. Have a great show this Fri./Sat.
Hugs!

Hope to be able to pop in for a peek - although I'm always too, too, late... Old children's books (and even some not so old) are counted among some of my favorite things as well....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (Love your new background...)
