Come discover a whimsical world of wonder by Canadian artist Miriam Handfield.

I believe that you are never too old to have something whimsical that brings a smile to your face and joy to your heart: be it a fairy garden collection, a rainbow collection, a mushroom collection, a collection of ladybugs or even a collection of farm animals to adorn your shelves, window sills, ledges and walls. It is my deepest wish that everyone be blessed to live in a place surrounded by both people and items that you love, that provide you with inspiration and provide you with nourishment for your soul.

Each of the items within my shop is made with love and are time consuming to create. I am a traditional craftsperson which means all items are handcrafted and fashioned using traditional tools and methods on high quality materials. You will not find any computerized crafting machines in my workshop or studio. Rainbows are cut out on scroll saws or table saws and any custom wood-turnings are turned on an electric lathe with hand held chisel.

Paint colours are mixed by hand using proprietary blends containing 2-7 pigments of the twelve basic certified non-toxic paint colours I keep in the studio. Painting is all done by hand with a handheld artist brushes and dotting tools (no spray paint or airbrushing). Creations are finished with certified non-toxic weather resistant glosses allowing items to be cleaned with a damp cloth for easy cleaning. All needlework, weaving and embroidery is also done by hand.

Items shipped out to you are wrapped in brown paper and tied with string, ready for you to gift to that special someone.

{My Inspiration}
I am a cottage creatrix who creates art from the comfort of my wheelchair. Blessed to live on a farm surrounded in part by the boreal forest of Northern Alberta, my studio windows face the woods behind my home that are filled with interesting flora, fauna, and fungi.

I have a soft spot for the woodland critters that often visit me such as foxes, deer, moose, mice, squirrels, mink, fishers, and the odd bear. Blue jays, robins, sap suckers, chickadees, owls, ravens and bald eagles also make appearances at my home and in my work.

Farm animals like my guardian livestock dog, free range chickens and pet rabbits we raise, the neighbours cows that graze in the field beside my home and the stray cats that come by also inspire my animal creations. My love for these adorable critters with big, wide beautiful eyes show through my work as well.

All the fore mentioned, as well as my love of and belief in the magical and mystical, help inspire my creativity.

Thank you for visiting my shop and taking the time to learn a bit more about me.

Please message me if you have any questions or have any custom theme requests.

Have a blessed day.

Where are your products made?

My creations are crafted / painted in my home based cottage art studio in Athabasca County, Alberta, Canada.


I am a small business that makes under $30K/year and as such do not have to charge GST, HST or PST on any of my orders because Alberta has no sales tax.

However, because Etsy makes over $30K/year on commission fees within Canada they are required to collect GST, HST and PST. Your order may have tax on it due to their wanting to collect it from you. You can contact Etsy custom care via this link if you have issues with them charging taxes on your order https://help.etsy.com/hc/en-us/sections/360000066568-Contacting-Etsy

If you have any questions on the tax charges on your orders, these issues need to be taken up with Etsy customer care as I am not required to charge these tax fees & do not charge these tax fees for my small business.
