Santa Claus is comin’ to town! I just added this new primitive doll to the Old World Primitives Etsy shop – a robed Santa carrying a Christmas stocking. The sweet annie in Santa’s stocking came from Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm in Pennsylvania (I never miss their delightful Harvest Festival).
Santa is SOLD, thank you!
Although I have started making Christmas items already, I am still having fun getting into the Halloween spirit and enjoying the season. Last night I went to the Great Jack-O’-Lantern Blaze in Hudson Valley, NY. It featured over 4,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated pumpkins on display in the form of dinosaurs, pirates, snakes, spiders, mummies, an undersea aquarium, grave angels (my favorite part!) and more. Below are some of the photos that I took at the event that came out well enough to be recognizable (it was dark and spooky! which meant that sadly many of my favorite parts of the display didn’t photograph well).
WSOAPP turned one year old yesterday – Happy Anniversary, WSOAPP! For our anniversary launch I listed a new set of 6 Christmas ornaments in the Old World Primitives Etsy shop. The ornaments are made of Victorian paper scrap, felt, cotton batting, and chenille. They are also available via the Old World Primitives homepage shop.
I am off to go get a new Santa doll ready for the next WSOAPP shoppe update on October 7th.
I listed a new item in my Old World Primitives Etsy shop last night – a bag of primitive candy cane ornaments. They had sold by this morning, so I have listed them again. 🙂
I was also delighted to find that my newest set of vintage style Halloween ornaments is featured in a new Etsy treasury today – I love little surprises that brighten my day!
Today’s new creation is a set of 3 vintage style chenille Christmas ornaments. The set includes one of each style pictured below, and they are available now in the Old World Primitives Etsy shop.
Each Christmas ornament is made of chenille plus Victorian Santa and vintage Christmas images printed on card stock.
