Due to the handcrafted nature, there may be slight variations in appearance.
What are Tomtes?
They’re the original elf-on-the-shelf - part of Swedish folklore, known for pointed hats and long white beards. Think garden gnome-meets-Scandinavia. They live in houses and barns and act as guardians and protectors … so long as they’re treated well. When they’re not - mischievous things start to happen.
Why is Janery selling Tomtes?
The highlight of 2020 has been, without a doubt, the way Janery has allowed me to give back more to those who most need it - pets and humans alike. When I learned that Bonnie’s income was affected by the pandemic, I wanted to help.
Bonnie channels her quilting talents to create Tomtes for Christmas and winter decorating, and I'm sharing them at Janery to help her reach customers. 100% of the Tomte sales will go straight to Bonnie.
Who is this mother-in-law?
When my mom passed away while I was pregnant 5 years ago, I was so thankful to have a mother-in-law who stepped up as a surrogate mom to me. Not only has she continued to be a “real” mom to me, but as a talented quilter, she has also inspired and encouraged my business journey.

The Tomte’s I ordered were beautiful and well made. I missed the first sale and was lucky to get them in the next batch. I love they have like real hair, so cute and adorable.J
The Swedish Tomtes are just perfect. The quality of the workmanship is outstanding - very well made. They are whimsical and just the right size for many displays. I missed out the first time they were offered and was delighted when I got another chance. Everything I have purchased from the Janery has been excellent. I look forward to seeing more products.J
These tomtes are simply adorable and so beautifully made! I had purchased them with the intent of giving them as Christmas gifts, but it's going to be difficult to part with them!T
Jane’s work is always wonderful, and the tomtes she curated with her mother-in-law are no exception! They’re a beautiful handmade addition to my living room, and I look forward to passing them down through my family and creating our own traditions. Thanks for sharing them with us!
