When my grandfather passed away, we received his carving tools. Many of these tools were handmade themselves. They have the initials carved into the bottoms of the handles. The ones that are not handmade are labeled in permanent marker. Every time I hold them, it’s like holding his hands.
With my grandmother’s inspiration and my grandfather’s tools I have created Acorn Tops. From the picture, my line of products have expanded from hand carved Fairy Doors to include Fairy Houses, Fairy Gardens, Fairy bottles, ornaments, and soon Raggle Taggle Fairy Dolls.
My business is small. These roots, this tie to the past and to my family will give me the wings for me and my business to soar.
