Tomorrow, this sign will hang in a store window at 12 Main Street in Chatham, NY. My two daughters and I will be selling our handmade goods, from 11 am to 4 pm. I have been able to work slowly on some small items for the sale.
Below are some more tiny worlds, small living terrariums, which will be for sale. I also will show some woolen goods, ornaments, and some jewelry. Stop by if you are in Chatham!

Today I am playing. With frigid cold, snow, and ice outside the window, I decided to play with green things, feel their life force, smell the soil on my hands. Below are some photos from the terrarium I created. On the KatharineHouk.com website you’ll find some tiny terrarium pendants I made with living moss.
This little green world was created in a glass cube shaped container, 5″ x 5″ x 5″. The people are approximately 1 & 1/4″- 1 & 1/2″ tall. I do have much smaller mushrooms to replace the “large” red ones, but the tiny ones need a coat of glaze to dry before I put them in a moist environment. The “large” rock was found by my granddaughter and added to the scene. Smaller stones are semi-precious. The bright sun washed out the green in these photos; it is much more green and verdant than it appears.
It’s the little things that keep me going.
