New Seasonal Cards

I have added two new seasonal cards to the Marilyn Smith Rosenfeld card collection in my Etsy shop. The first is a gorgeous colored pencil drawing of two botanical sprigs: Winterbery and Wild Rose. Since the image is scanned from her nature journal, I've included my mom's beautiful handwriting.

The second is a watercolor illustration of a traditional decorated tree with gifts underneath. Since mom draws from life, this is a depiction an actual tree they had one year. Every December, Mom and Dad put a real tree in a metal bucket and wedge the trunk in with tiny bricks. That sucker ain't tipping over. They love the light and fragrance a decorated tree brings into the house on the darkest nights of the year. I love to help them decorate it while listening to the soundtrack from A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Don't forget to stop by and visit on Sunday October 28th, I'll be setting up a table at the South End Open Market (be warned, SEOM site plays music) with BethBrown. I hear there is to be a parade of dogs in costumes! Ha! I knew that would be too much to resist. See you there :)


  1. There's a story behind those tiny bricks, as you well know.

    No, the bucket will never tip over.
    Wonderful blog and great photos of the cards. Thanks!
    Love, Mom

  2. I'd love to hear the story about the bricks sometime. =)

    I will be at the SEOM (this time to shop). If I remember, I might just stop by your tent. Maybe you could explain to me how you needle felt or make those lovely eggs?
