Spring Blessings in Greencastle PA creates primitive and early decorative art pieces. The boxes pictured at right are copies from originals at the Philadelphia Art Museum. They are cut from paper, hand sewn together, then covered with newspaper and Fraktur Art. Painted with bright colors (as the Pennsylvania Germans did) they are then sanded, distressed and coated with wax for a strong finish.
Wooden boxes are made from thin strips of wood and then shoelaced together. They are painted with exact replicas of designs used by the Pennsylvania Germans between 1750 and 1850.
Spring Blessings also makes log and stone miniature houses as well as other items made from textiles such as pin cushions, gloves and table runners.
