*WELCOME ~ I'M SO PLEASED YOU'VE STOPPED BY. DO MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME AND STAY A WHILE. :)*

~OPEN STUDIO HOURS ~ SATURDAY'S NOON TO 4:00 pm~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~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.

Doreen Frost is a Punch Needle Embroidery Folk Artist and teacher, who is inspired by her love of Early American art. She teaches classes all over the country and has been featured in many national publications. Doreen has a small open studio and shop in her Vermont home where she hosts holiday events, workshops and individual lessons, and sells her Vermont Harvest pattern line, finished pieces and punch needle supplies. The shop and studio are open Saturday afternoons from 12pm-4pm and her offerings are always available here, on the website.

The Frost Lady...........Crisp, frosty fall mornings foretell her arrival, and the steady snows of winter announce she is here to stay. Slowly she goes, and she brings the snow as she makes her way to the Winter Celebration deep in the forest. With each Winter Solstice comes the return of The Frost Lady to her North Woods home. Her snowy heart warm with love for the woods she has watched grow- Every creature a friend, each tree a memory. She walks slowly, cloaking each tree in glimmering frost as she passes by, just enough so the winter berries still shine through. Slowly she goes, and she brings the snow, as she makes her way to the Winter Celebration deep in the forest. ~ Doreen Frost

`AUTUMN IN THE GARDEN~

"The breezes taste Of apple peel. The air is full Of smells to feel- Ripe fruit, old footballs, Burning brush, New books, erasers, Chalk, and such. The bee, his hive, Well-honeyed hum, And Mother cuts Chrysanthemums. Like plates washed clean With suds, the days Are polished with A morning haze. " -  John Updike, September

I ADORE THIS ONE!!!
