Stenciled and Antiqued Primitive Paper Mache Eggs..Design A or Design B

**CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**...The idea for these eggs always looks good in theory and on paper ( I've made them before years ago)....but in reality, not so much! There is a lot of time and effort involved to finish these eggs. First, I hand drew and hand cut these teeny, tiny stencils to fit on regular sized paper mache eggs. Stenciling anything with a curved surface is difficult and somewhat time consuming. That being said, I LOVE these eggs. I have made stencil designs for 2 separate patterns. Stencil design A is one with sheep and hearts and a quilt patch star and stencil B is a black PA brushstoke design seen often on saltglazed crocks. I have only made 4 of each design but may consider taking orders if a rush to complete the order is not necessary. I am kindly asking 18.00 EACH, plus postage and I gladly accept paypal or personal checks. Please email if interested in these eggs. Thanks so much for your visit to PHM today and have a great day!

Folk Art Deer Covered Box

I've had a thing about deer lately! So of course, when I designed this box, there had to be a dear deer. He dances over green fields of flowers by the light of a seven-pointed star. 5.5" wide x 4.5" tall, of sturdy mache construction. Wool applique with cotton stitching on top, wool around the lid edge, and a blue print cotton on the box bottom. Just right for sewing notions, balls of thread, or even mundane things you want to dress up a little.
