August 15 Early Work Mercantile update

                         Welcome to my September 15th update on Early Work Mercantile!
  Making Halloween items warms my heart here in my studio at Bittersweet Moon Farm!  I love adding whimsical details to my Halloween themed items!   I hope you enjoy my offerings this month and thanks so much for stopping by!


Theodore is an adorable Halloween bear measuring in at 10.5" in sitting position.  Constructed from wool felt and primitively aged and stained to perfection!  Theodore has a gathered aged orange and black polka dot ruffle collar.   He has beaded eyes and embroidered facial details.  His hat and jack-o-latern bag are made of overdyed wool.  I have placed some dried real bittersweet from our farm and sweet annie in the jack-o-latern bag he carries.  I sculpted and painted the clay star on top of the rusty wire that he carries.  The clay star also has 4 rusty bells attached to it.  Black garland was used to trim Theodore's hat and buttons on his tummy.  I used a pattern from Brenda Gervais to construct this sweet bear.  Please note that you are buying the bear only and not the round box he is pictured sitting ontop of.  His price is 55.00 which includes traveling fare to your U.S. continental home.  You will just love this adorable bear in your primitive home!


Punkin is mounted on a piece of barnwood from our farm and he measures 16 inches tall.  He is made from painted and stained osnaburg fabric with  wool pants and  homespun flannel shirt all aged to perfection.   I hand embroidered an aged tag on his shirt with the word "Punkin"   He carries a rusty mesh candle holder and an crow staff made out painted and aged muslin.  His arms are fully wired to pose as you would like.  Seed bead facial features and buttons on his coat.  He will look lovely in your prim autumn home!  I know that you will just love him!   Kindly asking $75.00 with free traveling  to your continental U.S. home.  


                                                               Kitty on an antique hog scraper

 Kitty comes mounted on a primitive antique hog scraper.  Great rusty and aged patina on hog scraper.  Kitty mounted on base measures in at 9 3/4 inches tall.  I've aged a gathered  homespun flannel gold plaid ruffle around the kitty head base.  Kindly asking $45.00  with free traveling for kitty to your U.S. continental home.
