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 :)
