I am pleased to introduce Penelope Pettigrew....wee witch mouser from the Land of Nod and proud member of the Frequent Flyer's Club.

Ole Penelope has been around for at least a couple hundred years. She's had plenty of time to perfect the art of pranking. She loves popping up in the most unexpected places....behind the sugar bowl one day or maybe in an old pumpkin the next. She never tires of her silly games and considers herself the "BOO" queen of Halloween.

Penelope is made of aged osnaburg. Her face is needle-sculpted with black seed bead eyes and a painted nose. She has a fine wisp of grey hair that has been needle-felted in place and sports a smart pair of spectacles made of rusty wire.

Her moss covered hat and her arms are wired for gentle posing. Her broom is made of grapevine wire and excelsior.

The pumpkin is a Funkin and is made of a durable, carvable foam. "BOO" is painted on the front and it has been aged giving it a nice antique look. The pumpkin is finished off with a little spanish and floral moss. The entire vignette measures approx. 8" from the bottom of the pumpkin to the top of Penelope's hat.

If you should feel "needful" of wee witch Penelope, please contact me at Cost is $35.00 + 6.75 air fare. I gladly accept paypal, checks or money orders. You do not have to be a member of paypal to use the online service.

There is one available at this time, but I am happy to take a limited number of orders for sweet Penelope. If you would like advance notice of new releases, please sign up for my newsletter. (See info. on my right sidebar.)

Thanks so much for stopping by.
