My primitive belsnickles are one of the very favorite things I create each year. I've created this one for your Valentine's Day decor. The face is paperclay, molded in a vintage push mold. It’s attached to a stump muslin body, and painted. I’ve used vintage white mohair for the coat and hat, and trimmed it with wool. He holds a tiny bleached sisal tree with hand cut wool hearts and a large silver bell. His waist is tied with cord and a woolen scarf is wrapped at the neck. A tiny silver bell is stitched to the tip of his hat. He stands on a chunky wooden base. He's just under 11 inches tall. He will come signed and dated. ***Merry Christmas*** 'Tis sold... Thank you kindly!

Around his neck is a ruffled woolen collar. He's trimmed with rusty jingle bells down his tummy. He will come signed and dated. He’s just about 11 inches tall. Sold.... Thank you kindly!

One of my favorite ways to pass time during the long winter nights... This is one of my fun rolled wool quillie Valentine hearts, created with strips of coordinating red wools rolled together. They combined quite nicely for this beautiful heart hanger. There are countless hours of work rolling and assembling this piece. The quillies are applied to the front side of a red granny coat wool heart. I’ve attached a darker woolen braid around the edge, and a small brass ring hanger. A one of a kind treasure that should bring you joy for many years to come! About 12 inches across. It can be hung or used as a pillow. 'Tis sold. Thank you kindly!
