~Halloween-Ready Moon Make-Do~

This very dapper Harvest Moon Man is already for Halloween with his witch's hat, (his favorite night of the Fall season). This whimsical make-do measures 17" tall.

Mr. Moon is made of aged, painted muslin. I needle-sculpted his nose and lips. His grey eyes and the shading were done with artists' pencils. I added a soft peachy blush to his cheeks and lips.
The witch's hat is made of black cotton with yellow polka dots. I trimmed the crown with yellow and black twisted chenille stems hand-stitched in place.
His full ruffled collar is made of two polka dot cottons, the black with yellow and a smaller coordinating dot of yellow with black.

I secured the Moon head to an old wooden candlestick that I painted black and waxed and buffed. This piece will also come signed and dated.

PRICE: 49.00 (includes priority mail w/ins.) in 48 US States.

~a pumpkin and a pear~

This sweet faced pumpkin doll was a joy to make, I absolutely love her colors. She measures 20" from her toes to her dried gourd stem.

She's made of aged, painted muslin. Her nose is needle-sculpted and I drew the rest of her features with artists pencils. Her lips are black, her eyes are green and there's lots of shading and soft blushing.
Pumpkin doll is dressed in high quality aged cottons. Her jumper is wine colored and has a berry/leaf print of gold and green. The pants are gold w/tiny black circles and her blouse is aged muslin. All of the hemming was hand done with gold or black floss. Tied around her neck is a bow of golden tan ribbon.

The pear is made of painted, aged muslin and has a dried stem. It measures about 6&1/2" tall.
Her hang tag is stamped~Pears and Pumpkins~

This sweet Pumpkin head Doll with her pear is perfect for late Summer through Fall.
She will come signed and dated and is ready to hang, (chenille hanger is stitched to her back).

PRICE: 64.00 (includes priority mail w/ins. in 48 US States.
