Every year back home in Ontario I used to attend a folk art Christmas craft show.
This was not your ordinary craft show . For starters it was held in the country
in an old farm house and the owners barn.
It was always so enchanting the day of the
show. Guaranteed there would be snow covering the landscape . The barn was filled with
all the unusual artisans crafts and also lots of antiques. In the corner of the barn
a wood stove would be burning brightly. Inside the old farm house classic carols would be playing
and apple cider could be smelled in the air.
The crafts these artisans made were truly beautiful and original.
These mittens were made with old mink fur and velvet. They also had stockings
made the same way. Wish I bought some of those!
