A Santa Army.

You don’t want to mess with Santa. No, really, you don’t. Don’t let those rosy cheeks and kind eyes fool you. He has an army on his side– a whole slew of Christmas characters and woodland creatures who have his back. It could get messy…and glittery. It’s best to just be nice to the man in red and his cohorts.

Here’s a whole batch of Santas and some of his best buds. They’re my last Christmas dolls for 2013 and they’ve made their way to my Etsy shop. (Click the photo below to be taken directly to my etsy shop.)

Here are some photos of this rowdy bunch!

Thanks for looking! I hope these little guys have made you smile! Let the Christmas Countdown begin!

Gingerbread Sweetness!

It’s so felt like Christmas the last few days. We were fortunate to have all the beauty of ice hanging from lacy branches and limber pines, without the ugly that goes with it….like power outages, tree breakage and hazardous roads for days on end. For that, I’m very thankful.

At 1 PM EST today, PFATT Marketplace will update. For those of you new to my work, I am a member of an online art group known as Primitive Folk Art Talk and Tea (PFATT). Each month, many of our members offer our handmade items through a selling site which is a “sister” to our group called Primitive Folk Art Trinkets and Treasures Marketplace (PFATT Marketplace). PFATT Marketplace updates at 1PM EST on the 10th of every month with a host of new, carefully crafted items made by participating members. If you love personal, handmade, thoughtful items…this is the marketplace for you. Many PFATT members have had their works appear in magazines nationwide.

This is my offering for December’s PFATT Marketplace update. Meet “Ginger”, a sweet little Christmas tree topper or free standing doll.

Visit my page on PFATT Marketplace to purchase! And don’t forget to check out all the other available works!

Grace — A Wintery Folk Art Angel.

I want to share this little girl with you. Her name came to me quite suddenly, after her completion. I finished tying the embroidery thread attaching the buttons & wings to her body & the name “Grace” came. She’s graceful for sure & one of the loveliest tree toppers I’ve made. I can see this little lady in so many homes, whether you decorate traditionally, eclectically or in a shabby chic style—Grace could fit so many decors, trees or tabletops (she’s a free-standing doll too!)

Vintage crocheted trim, pages from a vintage hymnal & shimmery glass glitter are some of her special features. Take a look.

Grace is available on Etsy.

Wynter – A Primitive Wintery Elf

This is my latest creation, Wynter. She’s a beautiful snowy elf & would look perfect gracing your mantle this winter. This little gal will be available during the PFATT Marketplace sale, which is updated at 1PM EST, every month on the 10th.

Wynter is a one of a kind, is signed & dated & comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. She’s a free standing doll or may be used as a small tree topper on next year’s Christmas tree.

Visit PFATT Marketplace to see her! Make sure you check out the other talented artists! There’s lots of handmade goodies to be had.
