Mammy Miranda is a sweet black Mammy made from muslin and painted black. She's been sanded and then rubbed softly with Briwax. Her face is stitched with a pinch nose and she has large wooden button eyes. She has black braided wool hair with some bangs. Her dress is made from darkly died calico with a large antique button at the neck. She measures 28 inches tall.
It's summer now but you know Christmas is just only 5 months away! This is a pretty 22" square quilt made entirely from red, green and cream civil war reproduction fabrics. It would make a lovely quilt on your table or hang it on a wall.

This is Francine, an adorable snowgirl votive candle holder. She will also hold a tea light if you prefer! I know it's summer, but I am such a snowman fan, that when the mood strikes me to make one, I just go with it! I wish these pictures showed how pretty she really sparkles!
Details: She is almost 8" tall. She was sculpted with an air-dry clay over a ball glass canning jar. I put her on a terra cotta base that I painted and added german glass glitter and vintage looking mica. The snowgirl face was painted and sealed, the sparkle in her eyes are Swarovsky crystals. She is wearing a knit hat with a pretty bow and sparkle button. The glass votive container is removable. The votive candle is included. Her collar is feathers that I removed from an old coat I found in a second hand store many many years ago. She was finished off all over with german glass glittter and vintage style mica flakes. I love burning candles and this is such a cute way to do it!
Primitive stars are made from quilt shop fabrics. Firmly stuffed with poly. I have cross stitched around each star and have added a simple Liberty, America 1776 and Freedom to the fronts. I have also added a cotton string with a bunch of preserved sweet annie. Perfect little star to add to a primitive bowl or cubby. They measure 8" each. Will ship for free in the United States.
10" Stars are handmade using homespun and quilt shop fabrics. I have firmly stuffed each. I have added a vintage button on front and back of each star. Love this primitive pattern by Simple Pleasures from Maine. They are all aged with my own spice mixture. They will ship for free in the United States.
I only have 4 left, if you would like to order, I would be more than happy to make them!
