Mrs. Baker is an extreme primitive folk art doll made of muslin stuffed with sawdust. She wears a tea-stained muslin skirt with an adjustable drawstring and a very prim carrot. She has bits of coffee-stained string for hair and vintage buttons for eyes. I made her using a Netty LaCroix design. Click the links under Where to Find My Work in the upper right corner of this blog (a list that I am excited to say will be expanding very soon) to find where she is available for sale.
Here are my newest creations – a set of Halloween ornaments that I designed. I created them with chenille and some of my favorite vintage Halloween images printed on card stock. I think they will be right at home on one of my feather trees or perhaps hanging from a pegboard.
These folk art ornies are available for sale via Old World Primitives and the Old World Primitives etsy shop as a set of six – two of each of the three designs in the set.
I found the most delightful 1800s infant cradle while antiquing yesterday. It has square nails and original paint that is in remarkably good condition. I plan to use it to display a grouping of my primitive dolls.
Here is the second of the pair of extreme primitive black cats I have been working on.
She was also created using a Netty LaCroix design, and is for sale in my Old World Primitives Etsy shop now.
This week I am creating a pair of extreme primitive black cats. Making them is getting me excited for Halloween already – it’s never too early! Here is the first cat:
I just added her to my Old World Primitives Etsy shop. Many thanks to Netty LaCroix for the design!
I just added a new doll to the Old World Primitives Etsy shop.
Emma is an extreme primitive early American style doll that I created using a Netty LaCroix design. She is made of tea-stained muslin stuffed with eco-friendly natural fibers. She has a needle sculpted nose, black pins for eyes, and her remaining features are hand drawn. Emma has patchy black hair and wears a brown calico dress and a black shawl pinned in place with a vintage button. This primitive doll measures 26″ tall from head to toe, and 16″ tall when sitting.
Excited side note: my primitive bunnies and my primitive pumpkin are each featured in two new Etsy treasuries, for a total of 4 today! I am so excited. Three are in the Treasury West and one is my first main Treasury feature. Check them out:
Two of the OFG Team girls stayed up until 3am to snag a pair of Etsy Treasuries, and this morning I discovered that my primitive doll is featured in one of them!
I just joined an Etsy team called Old Farmhouse Gathering and I am very excited to be a part of the group. The members are very enthusiastic and welcoming! I am sure we will have a lot of fun supporting one another. Click the banner below to see what the group has to offer.
I will have a new primitive doll to add to my Etsy shop on Sunday too.
