Unveiling a Winter Wonderland of Art Dolls and Ornaments

The holidays are rapidly approaching, like a shooting star zooming through the sky.  Time seems to speed like a flash of light at this time of year. I've been busy here in the studio crafting holiday art, but you know won't see Santa Claus or Snowmen. I enjoy the olde traditions of the season, and the lesser known legends and tall tales. Of course many of them revolve around the woodlands, my favorite aspect of nature.

So, let's not waste any more time and show you what's been transforming in the studio...

Jillian Frost Art Doll by Jeanne Fry
Jillian Frost, a Winter Elf has arrived to town for the Holidays. Jillian is a mild mannered Elf, tender and caring, and watches over the woodland animals during the cold long days of Winter. She helps the wee ones find warm homes to shelter them and directs them as to where they can hunt for their meals. She knows what old Jack Frost is up to and when he will be bringing harsh frigid temperatures and frost, and will quickly alert the nearby animals to seek warm shelter.

Now, Jillian has an old friend....wise and majestic..and a great teacher. Her name is Beth.
Beth ~ Celtic Tree Birch ~ Goddess Tree by Jeanne Fry
Beth is the Lady of the Woods, derived from the Celtic Trees. Beth (Beith in old Celtic) is symbolic of the Birch Tree, which is considered to be the Goddess Tree. In understanding the Celtic Trees, the meaning of the Birch is Growth, Renewal, and Stability. It is known for the honoring of traditions.

Many wee ones came to life as well in the process, excited about the upcoming festivities and clamoured to join in the party.

This is Star Spirit

Have you ever seen a Star Spirit before? The Star Spirits float down from the skies and hover in the trees watching over the humans and animals. They love to be nearby us and act a bit like guardians, and are especially attracted to happy humans.

Next I would like to introduce you to the sweet little Peace Dove.

He is beautiful with any Shabby Chic or Winter White Decor, and emanates Peace to All. After the holidays he would be perfect to hang in a window or on a cabinet pull.



The New Year Angel Christmas Ornament joined this Holiday Crew as well.

The New Year will be arriving soon, and this little New Year Angel is here to help you ring in a beautiful New Year and bring wonderful opportunities for you.



As you are running around getting gifts for all of your loved ones and wrapping them up in pretty papers and adornments, what about sealing one with a kiss?
This little Art Doll Ornie is named "Sealed with A Kiss"

She just looks like she is supposed to be sitting on top of a gift...and she really loves to because she is one of those that loves to shake the gifts to guess what's inside.


Next to join the party is "Big Heart in a Small Package"

This little Celtic Woman spirit came all the way from Wales to be a part of the lovelies.



And lastly, you know I wouldn't finish out the collection with out a bit of the tribal....Here is Crazy Bear, a beaded ornament.
