~New Autumn Offerings~

The Primitive Gathering updates on the 15th, and here are my offerings this month.
(I was feeling very whimsical this month!)

Percy and Penelope Pumpkin~

These whimsical portraits are one of a kind and were painted on lightly textured canvas board. Each 6 x 8 frame is slightly distressed and sealed. The backs of each have a hanger attached and are covered in paper.

They can be sold separately, but they make a sweet pumpkin pair for an autumn display.

Pumpkin Cones~

These whimsies have hand-sculpted paperclay heads. Each pumpkin head is hand-painted and the papermache cones are wrapped in embossed paper. The paper is painted and brushed with a coordinating color, them applied to the cone.

Each has "antiqued" silver tinsel, and a wire hanger that is attached with metal clips. And each is approximately 9 1/2 inches from the wire hanger to the bottom of the cross or bell.

Here is a link to my webpage on The Primitive Gathering:

Please be sure to check out the offerings of all the artists while you are visiting!

Thanks again for the suggestions on what (cat/doll), "Katrina" should hold in her hands. I went with the mouse and now she has one attached to her hands!

She is on Ebay this week~

Your pumpkin cones are adorable! I love fall, it's the best time of year (minus the wind storms!). Miss Kitty looks great holding her mouse.

I LUV the cone dolls...too cute to say the least...Fall is such a great time of year, but then, before you realize it, Christmas creeps up on us and you sit back and ask 'where did the time go?'
Take care,
