Happy Holidays!

First off "Happy Holidays" to All! I want to take a minute to thank you for stopping by my blog and the Mercantile. I appreciate your business and friendship so very much!
I have been out of commission for a few weeks due to illness but I am coming in a little under the wire with 3 Christmas creations. I am having a problem with posting so in advance I apologize. My daughter usually helps me with my posting but couldn't today so I am winging it. Anyways my Parson Brown Peppermint Box is shown below but here is a brief description. I used an antique red box and mounted the coffee dyed osnaburg stitchery to the lid with an acid free adhesive spray. The box measures 7 3/4" wide x 7 3/4" long and 3 1/4" tall. Signed, dated & copyright 2011 by me. A sweet box to fill with peppermint sticks!

Merry Christmas Feather Tree Stitchery

This "Merry Christmas" stitchery was designed and stitched by me. It features a feather tree standing in a basket with pip berry vines below its boughs. I have tiny glowing cranberry candles and candy canes hanging from its branches. Two evergreen cluster with berries accent the top of the stitchery. I did my stitching on osnaburg, dyed it with coffee and then mounted it in black antique frame. There is glass and a sawtooth hanger on the back. The measurements are 13" wide by 10" long. It will signed, dated and copyright 2011. A lovely stitchery for hanging above your mantle or shelf.

Christmas Greetings Sampler

This "Christmas Greetings" sampler features a brown saltbox, a Christmas tree, 2 large light blue snowflakes, the year 1853 and 2 holly leaves. It was designed and cross stitched by me on fiddlers cloth and then dyed with coffee for antique look. I love the old time look of this piece. The best part is what I mounted it to. I found an old wooden cement float block at an Antique Shop. It leans back and rests on the handle. I was going to paint it but decided I liked the plain, natural look. It measures 11 1/4" wide and 5" tall. It was mounted to the board with an acid free adhesive spray. A fun piece to use with your displays. I had it sitting on my farm table with some greens and it looked wonderful. It will be signed, dated and copyright 2011.
