Found out last week that my Silver Rivet Necklace was featured in the Seattle Weekly's Holiday Gift Guide in the Nov. 30 - Dec. 6 edition! Here's the digital issue!
You can find the necklace at Paper Hammer's online shop as well as the brick and mortar store in downtown Seattle.

I recently heard about Krampus the Christmas demon. He's the dark companion of St. Nicholas and his job is carrying off bad children in sacks to devour. It's a tradition in Austria and northern Italy for people to dress up and parade through the streets as Krampus, scaring kids and amusing onlookers! I love this! Wish I could participate. How ridiculously fun it would be to rattle some chains and lurch around with giant goat horns and furry cloaks!
There's a great website called Krampus.com that has some great vintage images of our jolly Christmas demon. Here are my favorites:
|The snowman's face makes me laugh.|
|Oh la la, what is this- an assignation with the Krampus?|
|Bathing... the Krampus? What? The indignity.|
|The kid: "This horse is NOT big enough for the both of us."|
Krampus: "Wheeeeee! Giddy-up!"
|I think this is the same guy who was getting washed by the little girl. He's been through a lot, okay.|
Be good, everyone, and have a happy holidays!
