This Amish keepsake, created from 3/4" thick wood, sets neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim. The front design portrays daily life from the Amish community surrounding The Cat's Meow Village in Wooster, OH. A description written on the back describes the Amish way of life.
There are four seasons of wonder in Amish Country! Spring rings in the season of planting - planting the fields, the vegetable gardens, and the flowers. The livestock is happy to be freed from the confines of the barn and to taste the fresh green sprouts in the pasture. The earth is waking up. Summer is the season of warmth and growth. The fields are producing and nurturing their crops and one must be patient through the process. The cheese factories are alive with visitors awaiting a taste of creamy cheeses, yogurts, and ice cream. The carpentry and quilt shops delight guests as they showcase these time-honored traditions. Fruits and vegetables are canned for the next year's use. Fall is the season of harvest and preparation. Unique hay stacks and gathered corn stalks stand as sentinels scattered in the fields - foretelling of the hard months ahead. The farmer, along with his family, horses, and wagon, collects them for storage in the barn and corn cribs. Many thanks are given for the fruits of the year. Winter is the season of rest and reflection. As the fields rest from their months of labor, a diamond-sparkled, quiet blanket of snow covers them in beauty and peace. The earth is once again at rest awaiting the promise of spring - when the cycle will start once again.
