Just in Time for Winter.....

A magical mitten box!

Haven't painted a mitten box in absolute ages, but when I saw this piece, I knew it would be perfect! Had we lived in a cold climate when Courtney was little, one of these would have been a must, sitting at the back door, filled with mittens, gloves and maybe a scarf or two (it's a BIG box!)

What shall I paint on it?

Snowmen?

Cats?

Mittens?

Kittens who've lost their mittens?

All of the above?

We'll see - more often than not, these things take a direction of their own....Look for it Sunday evening on eBay. :)

I'm envisioning a silver moon, a snowman with cat mittens. Yeah- all of the above *winks*
Love the background!

Mittens! want to see cat with missing mittens! I once taught a workshop at a nursery school and the owner of the nursery school had a "Mitten Tree" out in back, the leaves were in the shape of mittens and the kids loved it!

LOL..how do you do it? Even an un-painted box can seem full of magic when you talk about it!:)

I can't wait..

I'm smitten with the idea of a mitten box :)

I'm afraid I live where it doesn't snow and yet I'm in love with all things wintery!
