Show 703

Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina

Itty Bitty Red Hand 703-1 Cinnamon Log Cabin- Visit the small towns nestled in the foothills of the Appalachians and you will find many log homes. As these towns were settled it was difficult to bring building materials into the mountains, so often the local trees were used to create log cabins; but none smell as sweet as our cinnamon house.

703-2 Palmetto Bug – People in the south wouldn’t think a bug was worthy of a television spot but we just had to have one creepy, crawly on this season. Bugs flourish in warm, humid climates.

703-3 Cardinal and Dogwood Sachet – Both Virginia and North Carolina share the same state bird and flower: the cardinal and the dogwood. In fact cardinals are the most popular state bird all across the United States, found in 7 different states, second is the Western Meadowlark.

703-4 Kitty Hawk – On December 17, 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright made the world’s first powered airplane flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

703-5 Tramp Art – This is an American folk art consisting of chip carving on cigar boxes and fruit crates. Soldiers of the Civil War passed around the carving technique. It is generally incorrect that tramps and hobos did this work as payment for rooms and meals – but that is where the name came from.
