Here is a little preview of some of the new designs that will be part of the stock update next Wednesday!
A wee little country neighborhood set that includes a house, barn, chuch, gingerbread house, pine tree, Christmas tree and a tiny snowman! I really adore this set and it opens up a whole new miniature world - literally. This may be the start of a whole new Woodmouse World line.
New Children of Nature designs - one banana, grapes and lemon.
The Children of Nature needed a mama! Introducing Mother Nature! I'll have just one of these available in the update.
Odin & his two ravens, Hugin & Munin! Many parallels between the pre-Christian Germanic god and Saint Nicholas/Santa Claus have been drawn. It is really fascinating! Red all about it on Wikipedia under the Influence of Germanic paganism & folklore section and How Odin Became Santa Claus. I've always questioned "but why do we do this" with traditions and enjoy learning the historical roots to holiday symbols.
Which brings me to Santa, lol! The classic American version of santa, the one I grew up with and believed in. I can remember truly believing in him, the magic of it all.
This set isn't new (my first nativity sold last January) but seeing as I'm talking about Christmas and meanings behind it, I'll mention that I'll have one Holy Family available in the update, as well as a full nativity set.
Speaking of historical significance to holidays, my Chanukkah Story playset is available in the shop and includes Judah Maccabee and Antiochus IV and a menorah - well technically it is a Chanukkiah since it has 8 candles plus the shamash. Read the Chanukkah story here.
So there is my holiday round-up for the update next week! Hope everyone had a restful Thanksgiving if you got the day off!
