On the Twelfth Day of Christmas: Korknisse Wishing You a Happy Twelfth Night.

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas: Korknisse in conference deciding who will hide where - to bring surprise smiles and to tend all the corners of the house.
Nisse are well known for quietly and secretly tending to barns, sheds and houses, and demanding very little more than appreciation from their "people". Most of them are to be found in Norway and Denmark, but I suspect there are many more living in other places throughout the world!
Since it is impossible for me to do anything but giggle or smile when I see one of these adorable little creatures, I decided to make many, and once their little conference was over, there was no doubt about where they wanted to be placed…
…the office/studio which doubles as a green house in winter...
…a favorite dish of coral and shells in the guest bath…
…living room mantle - currently occupied by snow covered trees…
…window shelf in the kitchen right next to calcite crystals…
,,,and temporarily in the Christmas Village under my tree and then my craft table!
The English version of the pattern for korknisse is provided by Saartje and can be found here!
As soon as I score more corks - there will be more little Korknisse to hide!
Happy Twelfth Night to all.
