Shelley Jean and her pull toy chenille sheep

I finished dressing this adorable little girl last night and when I was taking her photo I realized that this sheep pull toy is just the right size to belong with her. so, I listed her on my website and discovered a way to offer a discount if you purchase both at the same time.She's listed here.  Her sheep is made from a vintage chenille bedspread and I constructed the base myself from wood, wooden wheels, and screws.

I have so much fun designing and making my dolls but I must admit I enjoy posing them for photos just as much if not more.

Primitive Folkart Chickens

I've been having so much fun creating new things. These primitive chickens made of osnaburg are the latest. My friend has one similar to the black chicken and before I'd finished painting her, I had ideas for a half dozen different chicken designs. I'm going to make roosters soon too. I've listed these on my website  at   Lucy's Lazy Dayz Primitives. There are new pull toy critters and dolls as well.

Note:  There will be a pattern when I get my version done and figure out how to fit it on 8 1/2" x 11" pages. SOON--I promise!

Primitive Folkart Pigs

I've just added 2 of the sweetest piggies you've ever seen. The pull toy pig to the right is 4 1/2" tall and 5 1/2" long not including his tail and his pull rope. The ends of his wooden spool wheels have images I created when I scanned vintage thread spools and made duplicates.  I've listed both the pull toy and the pattern (mailed or emailed) for sale on my website. Just click here to go to the page where they're listed.

The pig below is listed on the same page as a finished pig. He's also made of muslin and he's a big guy....13 3/4" tall and 20 " long, not including his tail. He's a

very versatile piece that can be hung on a wall or used on a bench as a pillow.

He's listed on the same page as the other piggie.

Don't like the color? I can make the pig solid beige, black or rust. Or with rust spots or black on the ends and beige in the middle. As always, both are stained with my coffee/vanilla mixture and smell amazing.

New Halloween Pumpkin Man Pattern


I just listed the pattern for Harvey. He has a needle sculpted head and painted features. The pattern includes that wonderful ear of corn (made from chenille bedspread and muslin), the crow, and his burlap hat as well as the rest of his clothing. It's going to be featured in the Aug/Sep Country Sampler Magazine and is available as either a mailed pattern or epattern. He's a wonderful doll...25" tall. You can get your pattern early. If you want the finished doll, send me an email requesting the finished one.

New Listings on my website

I've just listed 4 new dolls on my website including the adorable little Annie Anne shown on the left. She's my latest design (pattern and epattern coming later this week......I'll post it here) and probably the cutest little Raggedy Anne I've made yet. There's also a small Mammy doll with hoop earrings, a wonderful beehive and an Uncle Sam that was featured in country Sampler magazine.

After you've looked at my new offerings, check out some of the other items I have to offer. There are amazing cats in different poses and colors. I have several raggedies, both black and white. There are many offerings in the dolls, Americana, Halloween and other categories.

More Christmas space at the Tomah Cranberry Mall

Here are 2 photos of the right half of my space. It was so much fun. The entire wall above is peg board for wreaths. The shutters were attached with the louvres on the outsides ends to point up so I can easily hook S hooks onto it and hang dolls, wreaths and stitcherys. You'll notice I have empty spots to fill right away but it was so hard calculating how much I could fit in the space. I put toys under the Christmas tree including a vintage wicker cradle with raggedies sitting in it.

I enjoy making very large items like 5 foot tall standing snowmen--much too large to ship but I could put them here!       Thanks everyone for looking and for your comments. I appreciate the feedback. This is the ideal store. I can arrange it to suit myself and yet I don't have to be available all day to work there so I can create to my hearts content.
