See I have been busy! I have new "friends" and old "friends" returning to Butternut Creek.
This first wee lass is on her way to FAERN-LAEGA Art Dolls. Her twin sister rode into the home and hearts of a collector. This is a Frowning Francis Design. What a rewarding piece that is 12 inches high and wide. There is ton of detail...small twists and turns. I would not recommend this to a beginner.
BETTZ TAKES A REST
Bettz is back again this fall by popular demand. She is a wonderful and enchanting piece. You need a large space for this piece and I think you could leave it out all year and not tire of her. She is a Grabby Gabby design. A very rewarding piece to create.
PUMPKIN AND CROW CENTERPIECE
Impressive centerpiece..perfect for all of the fall festivities. The Crow rests easily in the "Y" of a branch. Remove him for a more formal look. A big statement!
HEDRA THE FIELD WITCH
Hedra is back again this year is a small doll and loves to hide in the pumpkins. She is a Frowning Francis design and is delightful.
SALEM...... THE SCARECROW
Salem isn't scary at all. The crows love him.. This was a fun make-do designed by Crabby Gabby.
I found this property last night doing some family research . I am doing further work to track down what ancestor built and lived at this site. I wanted to share it with you. I see a primitive blank canvas...do you?
This property is for sale. Tim said, "Just a few more dolls, Pussycat...a few more dolls".
P.S. You should see the Halloween piece I'm working on!
Would this make a great prim cottage ? This little house has been in my thoughts since May. I was bitten by the genealogy bug to find the property that my great-great grandparents owned. I have the maps with the land owners...however things change over the years....new roads and new developments. I have hope that "our" farmhouse dating from at least 1838 is still in existence. Fortunately, Music Street still has many, many fantastic New England style old homes from the 1820's. Thankfully, they are now well kept horse farms. .......but this little house pictured ..not so lucky...it is circa 1832, or 178 years of age. If only I had a wallet filled with a lot of dead presidents wrapped with a bungee cord. I hope this Prim Cottage gets some love ....soon!
I found this amazing artist's blog the other day . He is living in Cleveland Ohio. . If you are into Halloween and Day of the Dead Dolls you have to take a look. Make sure you click on the first album on his blogs side bar and see his work.....5WOWS! http://www.williambezek.blogspot.com
