Lots of new items listed this week

 I've listed lots of new items on my website this week. Besides the winter items show above, you'll find new dolls and a few other Santas. There are also some wonderful snowmen listed in their own category.

Have you checked out the EZ CRAFT SHOW?  There are lots of great gifts over there and some wonderful bargains. All the items in my booth offer free shipping in the 48 US just like my website.

Finally getting back to work

After a month off, I'm finally getting back to work on my website and markets. The image you see is Gilbert Gourd, a 26" soft sculpture pumpkin man. His head feels nearly as firm as a real gourd (I love the misshaped small gourds).
I've listed Gilbert at THE PRIM NEST.
For all of you who've been wondering, the show in Illinois was some of the most fun I ever had. I haven't even got all the photos cropped yet. I'm writing about it for Rusty Tin Roof and will let you know (and post a link) when it's ready. There WILL be photos in the article and I'll post photos here.
I'm slowly adding items to my website--emphasis on slowly. It's that time of year when I'm so very busy with orders so everything else is slower.
Another announcement. I no longer sell my handmade creations at the Tomah Antique Mall/ Cranberry Mall/
I still sell items at The Red Geranium Framing & Gifts, 800 McEvoy St,  Mauston, WI and it has move into the most fabulous log home with  parking right in front. It's an amazing shop...not at all what you'd expect.

Country Folk Art Festival

This herd of pull toy piggies is hurrying to the Country Folk Art Festival in St Charles Il September 21, 22, and 23. My website and other selling sites will be closed until October 1st to give me time for that show and something else I'll tell you about on the 24th.

I hope anyone who can make it comes to the festival and introduces yourself. You can't miss my space--I have painted my website logo on a large banner that will be on the front of one of my tables.

This wonderful piece, Pumpkin Pete's Ride, was published in an article in the Fall 2012 issue of Prims magazine. I'm also taking him to the Country Folk Art Festival.

Guess what I've been making! I feel like I've been invaded with my little critters.

I'm making scarecrows and pumpkin head make dos for fall and I like to add a mouse to the brim of the hat for that irresistible touch of whimsy. The 28 mice you see to the left are ready to use.

I'll be at a huge Folk Art show in St Charles, Illinois September 21 to 23rd and I'm creating as fast as I can. If you're in the area that weekend, I'd love for you to stop so we can meet.

New Spring listing - Seamus Finnegan w shillelagh

    I listed this gentleman rabbit last night. He's made of muslin and button jointed. He has button eyes and string whiskers and there is a "cottontail" on his back side.
    He's wearing a lined black and tan wool blend vest. There are brass safety pins holding the front closed and there's a gold tone "watch chain" draped across his chest. Seamus is too poor to afford a watch so he fastened his door key to the the chain.
     Seamus is a very Irish rabbit with his shillelagh. I made the walking stick from a piece of tree root I discovered after a neighbor had some trees uprooted. It was so gnarly and interesting I had to carry it home. It's perfect here. I scrubbed it, sealed and stained it. It's actually sewn to his hand and the toe of his foot and makes it possible for him to stand all by himself as you can see.
    This rabbit and many more new items can be found at Lucy's Lazy Dayz Primitives.
