One of a Kind Original

I've had this prim old basket for years. It is 14 inches high and 9 inches in diameter. I filled the basket with two very prim boy and girl dolls that are each 11 inches tall. The boy doll has embroidery floss knot eyes and hair and red floss lips. He is wearing a grungy mauve shirt with ties around the wrists and primmed blue and white ticking pants.

The girl doll has embroidered eyes and mouth and brown wool hair that is needlefelted on. Her dress is grungy off-white fabric with tiny orange flowers. I put an antique button at her neck. She is holding some brown and tan berries in her arms. I added 3 Americana stars to the basket and two primmed American flags on sticks with gold balls on the top.
I added a grungy old crow to the top of the basket. He is made of muslin that was painted black and has a needlesculpted beak that was painted antique gold and embroidery floss knot eyes. He is sitting in a nest of moss. I also added a grungy primmed bow to the front of the basket.

The picture shows the stars much brighter than they actually are and the prim will be sprinkled with more cinnamon before shipment.
If you like Americana, you're gonna love this one!!
I am always happy to combine shipping.
