Dear Patience Brewster,
This year, I added to my reindeer collection just in time to put my Krinkles away until next season. You know how each year we have to put Christmas decorations away and it stinks? But we do it because we know, next year, when the holidays come around, we will be able to unwrap all these treasures and be charmed all over again. There will even be some we will have forgotten that we had, making the rediscovery a real treat.
I am writing to specifically tell you that there are always a few that I just can't bear to wrap up and put away. These Krinkles pull at my heart strings so much so that I let them stay out for the whole year.
I was wondering if other fans do the same thing and if so, where are their Krinkles friends off season? For example, I have Three French Hens hanging out with a Buddha on a chest of drawers in my bedroom.
And there is a Flying Crowned Heart hanging around one of my fireplaces. For a few years a Pomegranate Fairy fluttered above my kitchen sink, but she grew weary, and needed rest this year, so I wrapped her up in tissue until next year.
Do people send pictures of their Krinkles staged around their homes, offices or studios?
Objects are a reflection of the person who made or designed them or both. Amazing energy comes out of the PB creations because I believe you have really poured your heart and soul into their design and the production process that must follow.
I hope this letter shines the love and bright light that your creations have given to me … right back to you. I truly believe you bring real joy into the world and for this I am grateful.
