Item is SOLD! Thanks so much. Strawberry season will soon be here and I have something very sweet to offer you as you wait for all those berries! I made a sweet little doll holding a strawberry pin cushion. The strawberry is made from aged cotton prints and is filled with crushed walnut shells. The doll is only 6" high. The strawberry is under 2" high. She is stuffed with wool. Her clothing is made from 1800's reproduction fabric. Her hair is a piece of twill tape and her face is drawn on with a pencil. She's been appropriately aged with little pricks and frays to add more charm. The strawberry is held tightly between her hands. She can either sit or be hung from the little loop on her back. Please look at all the photos for details. The selling price includes shipping. I'm kindly asking $65.00.

One of my all time favorite patterns to made from Norma Schneeman, Dollhouse Dollies. With Mother's Day just around the corner, I thought I would made a few of these sweet primitive dolls. Momma and Daughter Dollhouse Dollies!! Each made from vintage flour sack fabric, gently antiqued with pencil drawn faces. They have dresses made from reproduction quilt shop fabrics. I have added wings to each. ( Thank you Julie for your inspiration!!). They are attached with brown beeswax thread with a rusty bells. Sold in sets, I have 3 of these to offer! Each sold separately. Please let me know what set you wish, A, B, or C. I will ship for free in the United States.
I really wanted to “think spring” but Mother Nature had other plans and gifted us with 8” of snow! This month I decided to make these sweet Snow Girls to go along with our crazy weather we’ve been having. They were made using a pattern by Woodland Primitives called Tilley & Lucy Simplewitch that I changed a little and made into snowgirls instead of witches. They are 18” long and can sit propped up or in a chair. I used vintage shoe buttons for their eyes. Their scarves and hats are made from wool and are not removable. They are both sporting pretty light green cotton dresses and muslin pantaloons. Kindly asking $45.00. Shipping is $8.50. Please indicate if you would like the doll with the brown hat and scarf or the doll with the red hat and scarf. Click on the picture to see additional photos.

Within the vintage Tonka carriage is a Santa dressed in an antique red and white quilt. He has a needle sculpted and hand colored face. Curly locks of sheep's wool was used for his beard. **PLEASE CLICK ON THE MAIN PHOTO TO SEE MORE OF THE GREAT PHOTOS OF THIS PIECE** ***Cranberries***

This sweet primitive Santa is holding a rusty star wreath and is all ready for Christmas with his own little tree. He’s wearing a red wool suit trimmed with wool felt and bells, has a curly wool beard, and I used walnut stain to give him an aged primitive look. From the top of his head to his black boots he measures 10”, so he can be easily sit on a shelf, or be propped or laid for display. Please click on the photo to see additional picture.
