“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” -Nathaniel Hawthorne

There’s something utterly satisfying about waking up after a night’s snowfall and hearing the raspy crunch of treading on freshly fallen snow. All is still and blissfully quiet as all earthly inhabitants remain ensconced in the warmth of their homes — not ready to face the hours of shoveling and the resulting backache.
This little treasure was delicately and painstakingly hand-painted for a special order last holiday season. Trinket boxes like this one make the perfect one-of-a-kind gift for a loved one or friend.
I need to constantly remind myself to take a break from the frenetic pace of work and to stop and find calm and appreciate the little things that nature and life have to offer. As such, here is an attempt to capture the joyful tranquility of watching the sun rise atop a mountain peak.
Stranger knocking at the door, or stranger calling at the sill,
May seem like no danger, their food will bring you ill.
But know this, stranger, with plots twisted all the more,
Your must get your hands dirty if you wish to be sure.
– Cam S.
This piece is one of several from a new series of one-of-a-kind wood trinket boxes inspired by original fairytales. As you rotate the box in your hand, you will find a precious set of carefully illustrated vignettes highlighting the major story points of the original “Snowdrop” fairytale, complete with a poison apple top to match.
