A Halloween Trio & My First Ornies for EBay!


Don’t forget to check out these little guys. They’re the first ornies I’ve offered on Ebay & my first Halloween ornies offered, period. I loved making them & hope to continue making ornies for the Christmas season. You can see more photos or bid on these sweeties here.

Did someone say Primitive Halloween Party?

Oooh, I am thrilled to be able to offer this little Halloween set this week – Olivia & Tab #56. They turned out so incredibly cute & don my all-time favorite shades…brown & green. (My obsession with chartreuse began in high school after finding a perfect 1940’s bright green coat in a local thrift store for only……50 cents. I loved that coat. It was a major component of what my family often called my ‘homeless chic’ look at the time.)(psst…I secretly loved my homeless chic look too…)

Here’ are the pretty ladies:

This little pair is Olivia & Tab. And boy, are they ready for a Halloween Party! This doll set is my original design & is guaranteed one of kind art! Olivia & Tab have been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. They’ve been painted & sanded, top to bottom many, many times & are sealed with a combination of sealers so that they may be beautifully preserved. Olivia sits on her own & is made in the fashion of my larger dollies. Tab sits with Olivia’s assistance. Sophie is 19 inches tall from the tip of her hat to the bottom of her shoes. Tab is 13 inches.

These sweet faces have been painted with a variety of mediums. Both dolls have needle-sculpted noses & Olivia’s bottom lip is needle-sculpted by hand as well. They have beautiful, three dimensional faces.

Both dolls sport dainty tan gloves on their needle-sculpted hands. They also sport pretty boots complete with green laces for Olivia & cream laces on Tab.

Both girls are wearing dresses made from 100% cotton prints. The fabric is truly supple & soft. Their blouses have been made of taupe osnaburg & feature hand-gathered sleeves & vintage mother of pearl buttons. All exposed hems have been hand-stitched as well as the collar & back of each blouse. Even these sweet party hats, made of cardstock & handmade lotka paper (not handmade by me–purchased from a specialty shop) are closed with stitching!

Olivia carries with her the accessory every little girl needs for a Halloween party!–a large pumpkin bucket to hold CANDY.


This pumpkin has been sculpted out of paper clay without the use of molds–only my hands and a paintbrush. It has been painted with acrylic paints & features tiny paper clay leaves & rusty wire handle. It has been antiqued, lightly sanded & sealed with matte sealant.


Olivia’s hair is black 100% mohair. It was lightly glued & carefully needle-felted to her head.

This sweet little set will be hitting eBay tonight, August 17th at 9 PM EST & will run through Sunday, August 24th at 9PM EST. Click here to make these party girls ours!

A Primitive Witch in Red & her Halloween Gang

I’m so pleased to introduce you to little Sophie. She is my original design & is guaranteed one of kind art! Sophie has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. She’s been painted & sanded, top to bottom many, many times & is sealed with a combination of sealers so that she may be beautifully preserved. Sophie has a hemp loop attached to her back for hanging or she can sit with assistance as her knees & hips are sewn through. Sophie is 22 inches tall with her hat, 18″ without it.

Sophie’s face has been painted with a variety of mediums. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand. I’ve also needle sculpted by hand Sophie’s fingers. Her arms are lightly wired allowing her to be gently posed.

Sophie sports dainty yellow gloves & pretty boots complete with red laces & buttery yellow socks. Sophie’s laces are highlighted & shaded, making them so very interesting.

Sophie wears a hat & cape made from dark red velveteen. Sophie’s cape is lined with taupe osnaburg & ties at the neck with chocolate ribbon. Her hat is finished with antique mother of pearl buttons. Sophie’s skirt is made from cream colored corduroy & features contrasting red hand-stitching at the hem. Her blouse is made from muslin, features tons of hand stitching & a taupe pearl bead at the neckline. Sophie’s cape & hat can be removed.

I guess when you’re as cute as this girl is, it’s normal to have a slew of little buddies. And boy are these little guys teensy tiny.
Jack O’ Lantern measures 4″ tall, Ghostie is just shy of 3″ & that sweet little Kitty is just shy of 4″. They’ve been made of muslin, stuffed with fiberfill & hand-painted & sanded top to bottom many times.


What a great home this little Halloween Trio gets to hang out in! Sophie’s bag has been made of taupe osnaburg. It is completely lined & features (my first attempt at) embroidery, in shades of red & burnt orange, along the top. Three vintage & antique buttons adorn the front of the bag.

Sophie’s hair is brown 100% mohair. It was lightly glued & carefully needle-felted to her head. It is styled into a big messy bun in the back & is such a sweet hairstyle on this little witch.
