This Punkin Muse is been constructed on a heavy metal mannequin dress form cage - definitely a one-of-a-kind! Much detail has gone into this doll with tailored Jacket and matching skirt, gathered in the front to show off the tulle underskirt and dress form. Her face is painted and stained and has a pumpkin stem attached. Her nose matches the trim on her jacket and the rosette that holds the gathered skirt. In one hand, she holds a pumpkin with a metal tag that is stamped "MUSE". I had such a grand time making this girl - thanks to Veen for the mannequin form. *** be sure to click the photo for additional views ***

Dusty is the sweetest girl, from the tip of her wool hat to the bottom of her shoes. She measures 20" tall, not including her hat. I have spent much time on details of her clothing. Her dress and pantaloons are made from beautiful gauze - be sure to check out her scoots! She has dreadlock hair made from fine sheep’s wool. Her hat is removable and her underskirt matches the stuffed bat emblazoned on her chest and the ribbon around her hat. You can pose her to sit or stand but the mustard drieds she is holding are not included. ** click the photo for more views! **

Next up, we have a beat up and battered old Carpenters Apron that has been primmed even more than normal wear and tear creates. It's packed with Autumn goodness! Sunny is another punkinhead that I've created and she comes holding a crow in her arms. The apron is loaded with Indian corn, sweet annie and a perfectly prim sunflower that the crow keeps trying to get next to. Sunny is ready to take flight and come to her new home if you will have her. She would look amazing hanging from the front door, greeting guests or on an inside wall of your home.

Sunny has been spoken for, thank you!

This sweet Stump Annie has such a love for Halloween! She measures 12” tall and comes with a paper mache Jack attached to both hands. Her features have been stitched and her hair is the most amazing wool alpaca dreads.

I've heard someone once asked "Are you a good witch or a bad witch"? Well, clearly Aunt Lydia doesn't reveal too many secrets about herself and responded by saying "time will tell". Now, don't let the wart on the side of her nose fool you! I can attest: Auntie is a very good witch. She stands a whopping 24" tall and is mounted to a weathered piece of barn wood. She has so many awesome features, from her wool felt hat and jacket, adorned with rusty bells to her laced up boots to the wax punkin head ornie in one hand and a great broom in the other. She is sure to be a great conversation piece.

This Witch's hat is painted paper mache with an array of artificial fall foliage and pips, berries, pinecones and nuts. I love how it turned out - it measures 8" across at the brim and stands almost 6" tall. It is big enough to be an eye catcher but small enough to pair it up in a a great Halloween vignette. Cost is $28, shipping included.
