Here’s a little peek at the Tiny Toadstools and Snowy Little Hootie Owls that debuted at the Peoria Academy Holiday Fair this weekend. I absolutely love how the snowy owls turned out. Because they are all white, I added cream or grey appliqued faces to help their eyes stand out, and I think they look darling. And perfect for the chilly winter ahead!
I also added Tiny Toadstools, sets of five little hand-painted button mushrooms in red, green, and turquoise. I think they look great nestled in among the moss in my handmade terrarium (which requires no water, because it’s decorative craft store moss. My kind of plant!) The tiny toadstools and snowy owls (along with little Hootie owls in goldenrod, plum, and blueberry) will be appearing in the shop either Sunday or Monday, so be sure to check in!
As for the craft fair, it was a nice day, if a bit slow. I had an opportunity to visit the other vendors, buy myself a pretty hematite bracelet, and talk with the shoppers, which is always one of my favorite parts. This fair got me all excited about the Fancy Schmancy Holiday Shoppe next weekend. It’s going to be fun! The slowness also gave me time to make a bunch of new owls, and I can’t wait to share them with you!
