WELCOME. DO COME IN AND MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME. Would you care for a cup of hot cider or perhaps a mug of Cocoa?

~Tucked in a valley, at the foot of Round Mountain, among the graceful Maples & Oaks you will find our Little Brown House. Smoke billows from the chimney seven (sometimes eight) months out of the year, a river rambles nearby, sheep & Cows graze in the meadows and turkey's forage along the olde stone walls. Here you will find me...surrounded by wool & cotton threads, hoops & needles on my lap & sketchpads scattered about.~ This is Vermont Harvest Folk Art.

"He decorated Mole End yet more brightly, lit his candles more plentifully, and made and ate his seasonal savory delicacies and sweet-meats with ever more relish. Then, when the darkness of the evening finally fell upon Twelfth Night, he would light a fire that was especially bright. This was the night his father had taught him to wassail the orchard of his childhood home. These days he had no orchard, yet the Mole would make a draught of wassail all the same, for old times’ sake. Then he would take it hot and steaming across the fields towards the River Bank to toast the crab-apple tree that grew there, from which, each year, he gathered enough apples to make cider and jelly for the winter months’." ~ The Willows At Christmas.

NEW THINGS TO COME...

KITS....I AM NOW offering a **LIMITED NUMBER** of full kits.  :)

I hope to be adding candles and tarts, made by my daughter, to the site, this holiday season.

 **I HAVE A NEW "BOOK" IN THE WORKS :)  While January cold and snow settles in, so shall I and bring this new book to life.

~NEW PATTERN COMING VERY SOON~

There's just something beautiful about walking in snow that nobody else has walked on. It makes you believe you're special."

GLAD TIDINGS & MERRY DECEMBER TO YOU.   

OH, how I LOVE this time of year!! November & December are my absolute favorite months.  This is just such a joyful time of year.  We settle in and make all things cozy.  Wood fires, candle glow, the first snowflakes, the smell of gingerbread.  We make notes & plan gatherings with our loved ones.  We think of others;  planning menu's, special trips,  outings, visits with dear friends and finally, a special gift to gladden their hearts.  SNOW..did I mention snow??? :) Of course I did but it is oh so worth mentioning again!  

I've many plans that I hope to make realities this coming season. I will keep you abreast of them all and hope that I can give them the time and attention they richly deserve. :)

Until next time.  Wishing you a glad heart ~ Doreen
