Thanks for stopping by. I am pleased to introduce you to Farmer McMouse, his trusty sheep, Beulah and his BFF Lil' Louie. Now Lil' Louie thinks his most important job in life is to keep ole McMouse abreast of all the goings-on in the Land of Nod. Truth told, McMouse does enjoy the company during the long trek from the pumpkin patch. And most times, Lil' Louie does spin quite a yarn to keep the ole farmer amused.
This is a one of a kind fall gathering by Buttermilk Creek Farm. It measures approximately 17 inches long from the back of the wagon to the front of the sheep and is approx. 6 1/2 inches tall. This gathering is made so it can be viewed from either side.
The wagon is made from a vintage, weathered piece of barn wood. The pumpkins (5) are made of painted and aged muslin with grapevine wire stems and wool felt leaves. They are securely attached to the wagon. Lil' Louie is made of painted and aged muslin and is 2 1/2 inches long.
Farmer McMouse is made of aged osnaburg. His face is needle sculpted. His eyes are black seed beads and his nose is painted. His shirt and neckerchief are made of homespun and his overalls are made from old denim. His arms and legs are wired for posing and his dilapidated ole hat is made of osnaburg. He sits atop an old bale of hay.
Beulah is made of muslin and is covered with vintage, hard to find, seed batting. Her blanket is made of drab green wool felt. All of the edges have been blanket stitched. The pockets on her blanket are filled with dried, sweet annie. Her harness is made of grapevine wire and can be detached from the wagon for ease of storage.
