"On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me two turtle doves…" and what a lovely pair of doves they are! Soft gray and sparkling, it looks as though they have alighted on the back of a friendly turtle, who just happens to be dressed for the holiday. A heart shaped bower is over the doves' heads and stars are perched on the tips of their wings. Holly and berries surround the turtle's shell. (I sense a message from Patience Brewster herself here: turtle and doves = 2 turtle doves.) Legend has it that the two turtle doves in the song represent the Old and the New Testaments of the Bible. Regardless, this 4 inch high ornament is a fitting tribute to a lively and happy Christmas carol and a testament to the creativity and skill of Patience Brewster and her KRINKLES collection.
