JOY TO THE WORLD and CHRISTMAS KAMPUS

Hello my adorable wicked hares!!!! I'm so happy to finally show you my 2 last releases for Christmas! I did something that I know it's not commercial at all! But I LOVE the Krampus tradition and so I thought: 'ok, let's do it!' Let's spread this amazing tradition....
I hope you love them as much as I do.
And as usual thanks to Miss Betty (Elisabetta) <3 p="">


JOY TO THE WORLD:

CHRISTMAS KRAMPUS:
on my Etsy:




Few worlds from wiki about the KRAMPUS
The Feast of St. Nicholas is celebrated in parts of Europe on 6 December. On the preceding evening of December 5, Krampus Night or Krampusnacht, the wicked hairy devil appears on the streets. Sometimes accompanying St. Nicholas and sometimes on his own, Krampus visits homes and businesses. The Saint usually appears in the Eastern Rite vestments of a bishop, and he carries a golden ceremonial staff. Unlike North American versions of Santa Claus, in these celebrations Saint Nicholas concerns himself only with the good children, while Krampus is responsible for the bad. Nicholas dispenses gifts, while Krampus supplies coal and the ruten bundles. (Wikipedia)

A PRIM TALE...

Hi Prim girls... Today I want to share with you a real prim story.... Usually I use this blog only to present my patterns, but today I wanna do something different... Behind all my patterns there is always a story, a place I visited, a passion.... Let me tell you something about the very special pattern I will present you next week...

I love Salem MA. It's an ancient and beautiful little town... and in the centre of this beautiful New England little town there is an old old OLD cemetery. In this old old old cemetery there are two tombstones.... One is the tombstone of Timothy Brown, and the other one is the tombstone of his wife Mary... She died along with their baby few months after she gave birth... And the year after Timothy died too... We don't know the reasons of his death... but I want to think that he was so sad for having lost his wife and child that he gave up....


I have always felt a deep feeling for this ancient family, and every time I visit Salem I visit also their tombs.... and I leave 3 pennies... and pray for them...

And so I decided to dedicate this pattern to them... this is just a glimpse of the pattern... I'll post it next week... But I really wanted to share their story with you all :)))
