Can you believe it’s just about July already? This year has just been flying by. I have been busy working on new creations lately, and just finished updating my Early Work Mercantile Shop for our July 1st update. My offering this month is a primitive witch make-do, which I created using a Kentucky Primitives pattern.
SOLD, thank you!
I also added a new set of 3 vintage style chenille Halloween ornaments to the Old World Primitives Etsy Shop, and will be adding a bunch more Halloween ornaments (both chenille and cloth) soon too.
On Sunday I also had the pleasure of attending the Kutztown Folk Festival in Kutztown, PA for the first time and I enjoyed it so much, I can’t wait to go back again next year! The festival included over 200 crafters both selling and demonstrating their crafts, and the quality was just amazing. There were SO many things that I wanted to buy! It was hard to stick to my budget and leave with just a few small goodies, but it was really fun and inspiring to see so many high quality crafts. There was also a quilt barn filled with over 2,500 handmade quilts, many of which I wished I could bring home with me too. We also sampled lots of yummy food and drink including the homemade fudge that I am snacking on right now, looked at the many exhibits, listened to some live folk music, and watched a thatched roofing demonstration. A few of the pictures that I took at the festival are below.
And finally, a big thank you to everyone who voted for my extreme primitive black cat doll in the Etsy Americana Decor Voter Poll! She was featured in a Storque post announcing the voter favorites and is now included in the Americana Folk Gift Guide.
Just listed on Etsy – a spooky new primitive folk art ghost doll, ready to haunt a house near you.
SOLD, thank you!
She is made of lightly stained muslin and cheesecloth, measures 22″ high, and was created using a Kentucky Primitives design. Float over to Etsy for more photos and a full description.
I was planning on making an Uncle Sam doll as my next creation, but I couldn’t resist squeezing in a primitive black Halloween cat first. This extreme primitive black cat doll is wearing a witch hat and was created using a Netty LaCroix design. He is available now in my Old World Primitives Etsy shop.
SOLD, thank you!
In keeping with today’s Halloween theme, I also received a wonderful package in the mail today. I was the lucky winner of a set of curious Halloween ornaments handmade by Iva Wilcox in EHAG’s Frightful Fête 3rd Anniversary Giveaway. I was so surprised and happy that I won – and when my package arrived, I discovered that Iva had also tucked in a beautiful signed, limited edition ACEO Halloween print as an extra. Thank you so much, Iva, for brightening my day with these lovely goodies!
Happy Fall! I just finished a primitive folk art Halloween doll set – a witch with a pointy hat and a pointy nose holding her cat. The pair are available now on Old World Primitives and in the Old World Primitives Etsy shop.
SOLD, thank you!
This will be my last Halloween themed creation for awhile, now I am off to start working on some Christmas items.
I just finished creating a new set of 6 vintage style chenille Halloween ornaments. The set includes two of each style pictured below, and they are available now on Old World Primitives and in the Old World Primitives Etsy shop.
Each Halloween ornament is made of chenille and vintage Halloween images printed on card stock.
Here is a sneak peak of the witch make-do that I will be offering for sale at my WSOAPP shoppe grand opening on September 7th:
The Whispered Secrets of a Primitive Past (WSOAPP) group that I am a part of has a new fall/Halloween theme on our homepage! Mare and Brenda have done such a great job of making the site look amazing. And I am so honored to have one of my primitive cats featured in the new website banner!
Stay tuned to the WSOAPP homepage, we have some exciting new things in store for everyone starting next month. September 7th will mark the Grand Opening of the group’s Member Shoppes, which will be linked from WSOAPP.com.
I am back from my first of two July vacations for a few days and am squeezing in some new creations while I am back home. Here is a sneak peek at the latest offering from Old World Primitives – a pair of primitive sisters. One is an angel, and one is a witch.
The pair are joined together and each has a string for hanging. I created these primitive dolls using a Netty LaCroix pattern. The sisters will be available for sale soon in the shops listed under “Where to Find My Work” at the upper right of this blog.
Due to the popularity of my first set of chenille Halloween ornaments, I decided to create some more spooky new ornies. This set is also an Old World Primitives design and includes two of each design pictured, for a total of 6 ornaments in the set.
Each ornament is made of chenille and vintage Halloween images printed on card stock. These primitive folk art ornaments are available now on Old World Primitives and in the Old World Primitives Etsy shop.
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.
