Exciting Day on Etsy!

Today has been quite an exciting day for me on Etsy! This morning my Vintage Style Chenille Santa Ornaments were featured in an article on Etsy’s “The Storque” blog called Holiday 2008: Our Favorite Ornaments. A big Thank You to those who voted for me! 🙂

Then this afternoon I logged onto Etsy and discovered my new Primitive Mrs. Snowman Doll on the Etsy front page – what a thrill!

Mrs. Primitive Snowman Doll

I listed this new primitive snowman doll – or should I say, snowgal! – in my Etsy shop today. She is the Mrs. to the last snowman doll that I made. Perhaps that toothy grin is because she carries a snowball in her bag that is ready to throw?

I had a lot of fun taking pictures of her too. I love to get to play around with my collection of antiques and primitives and do a bit of redecorating around each new doll. It is almost time to finally tuck away the Halloween decorations that I still have filling my house (I love them so… I seem to stretch their stay a bit longer each year) and start bringing out the Christmas goodies. I bought a new primitive twig tree in Lancaster, PA last month that I can’t wait to set up and decorate for the first time. Soon I will have to find some time to make some extra sets of my candy cane and Santa ornaments for myself. Thank you to all of the wonderful customers who have been keeping me so busy making them!

Christmas Ornament Contest on Etsy

One of the lovely ladies from the OFG Team on Etsy just pointed out to me that my set of 6 vintage style chenille Santa ornaments – which are also my WSOAPP Door Prize this month – have been included in an Etsy Holiday Ornament contest! The Storque article about the contest says, “You have until noon on Friday, November 21st, 2008 to cast your vote. You must be logged into Etsy to be able to vote. Your vote remains anonymous. 60 items were chosen by admin for your consideration.” My Santa ornaments that are featured in the contest are pictured below, if you would like to go take a peek and vote for me. 🙂

I would like to stay a visit a bit longer, but the holiday rush of orders and the sewing machine are calling me. I will have another new doll to share very soon. I am also delighted to have been accepted as a vendor on a new juried handmade marketplace site called 1000 Markets. My shop is here: Old World Primitives. And now I am off to get back to work on creating more goodies to fill it with!

Primitive Snowman Doll

I am back with another new doll to share! Cold and flu season visited my home early and with a vengeance this year but I am finally back in the swing of things again this week. This primitive snowman will be my offering tomorrow for the WSOAPP Holiday Open House launch. He will be available in the Old World Primitives WSOAPP Shoppe along with a holiday themed prize I will be offering to those who stop by and sign up.
