On a glorious mid-winter’s day, a pair of folkart birds rest in the branches of towering trees. Snowflakes silently begin to blanket this quaint village.

Misty Purcell’s latest designs are so sweet. Why not tuck them in unexpected places to add a touch of charm to any nook or cranny. In her words:
These chubby birds are looking for a sweet treat! They’ve landed at the bee skep to see if the bees will share a bit of delicious honey with them

It’s a beautiful day for gliding gracefully across the ice. After enjoying some time on the rink, the elves will head home for a steaming cup of hot cocoa!
It’s a bumpy ride skiing down the gumdrop-covered roof of a gingerbread house! The race is on! Who will make it to the finish line first?
