For the Artisan's Showcase at the Sow's Ear Studio and Gallery and the Holiday Show at Valley Artisan's Market these tomtens and felted birds make their seasonal appearance. The tomtens are little Swedish gnomes who are quite mischievous. My Swedish grandmother sent a tomten to us when I was a child and they have been part of my life ever since. They like to have a nice bowl of rice pudding on Xmas Eve as an expression of appreciation for their hard work all year. These little birds and tomtens are available in Cambridge, NY at the Valley Artisan's Market during the month of December.
