WOW....guess I have been away from blogger for a while and I apologize for that! I have been spending some quality time with family and also finishing up a few personal projects from my "to do" list. Do you have one of those?....ha! But...I am happy to say that things are beginning to happen again here at the farm and I have my first new mouser offering up for your consideration.
This is Miss Maisy Mouser and she is surrounded by all her favorite vintage valentine treasures. This one-of-a-kind vignette was inspired by a pattern from one of my favorites...OLD ROAD PRIMITIVES.
This vignette measures 14 x 9 1/2 x 4 1/2. The mailbox is made of sturdy paper mache. It has been painted white over black, heavily sanded and then aged and sealed with my own special blend of paste wax giving it a wonderful old patina.
The "Be My Valentine" hangtag is hand embroidered osnaburg that has been aged and stiffened to hold its shape for years to come.
Miss Maisy stands 5 1/2 inches tall and is made of aged osnaburg. She is wearing her best red flannel dress and aged muslin apron. She is proudly showing off her valentine heart/sweet annie bouquet given to her by none other than her own "Mr. Wonderful." The mailbox is finished off with sweet vintage valentines from years gone by and muslin painted hearts lightly dusted with mica flakes.
This piece is not intended for small children but for the serious adult collector. As with all my offerings, special attention and care is given to each detail. If you should feel "needful" of this one-of-a-kind vignette, please contact me at email@example.com.
Cost is $45.00 with FREE priority airfare to your home ~~~ my valentine gift to you.
I live in the beautiful countryside in a small town in lower West Michigan.
I am a self-taught artist and have experimented with many different mediums over the years. My passion is creating in fabric. I have a love for antiques and all things primitive and try to reflect this in my art.
My huband is my Mr. Wonderful and best friend. Between us we have four grown children who have blessed us with eight truly awesome grandchildren.
I love God and am a Christian woman. My family and friends are my life.
