Wool Heart Mittens with Heart Candle Winter Gathering
This next special gathering should certainly appeal to your “heart” by lending warmth, coziness and color to your homestead without delay! The heart candle cozies up quite nicely to the pair of hand knit wool heart mittens that are also included in this gathering.
Soft crimson red and snowy white wool were used to create these hand fashioned mittens by a Canadian artist. The front shows a double heart while the inside of the mitten boasts a single heart done in a stunning crimson red color. The ribbed cuff sports a triple stripe using alternating red and white yarns. The left mitten on the bottom location near the cuff area shows a dropped stitch indicated by the arrow. It happens! The heart design presents a folk art look while capturing whimsy and charm. These mittens are in excellent condition!
The heart candle was fashioned from blackened beeswax, then rubbed with scented spices and smells great! I added a piece of an early coverlet that was inset in the recessed heart shown on the front. The texture of this receptacle that holds a votive candle is bumpy and lends a primitive look.
A votive battery operated candle rests nicely in the well provided at the top and also has a primitive appearance. There is no timer just an “on and off” switch located on the bottom. You will also receive a spray of Sweet Annie and Flax to place on the mittens.
Winter can be pretty dreary but the good news is we can add color to our homes along with lit accents to help us get through until spring arrives. This gathering lending interesting texture and beautiful color would show best on a table perhaps with old books placed nearby. You can light the votive during the evening hours or on a stormy day to help brighten up any cozy corner of your home lending grand results! Enjoy!
