Nimbles the Christmas Mouse/ in Primitive Bucket

Hi and Welcome to my Auction! Today I have Nimble the Christmas mouse. The mouse is from one of Patti Ratties patterns but the rest is my design. Nimbles is made out of white felt.

I handstitched his nose and face on. Tiny beads for the eyes. The hat is sewed with a blue fabric with snowflakes on it. I filled the bucket with evergreens, and red berries and then I added Nimbles in the middle of it all.

I did a primitve hang tag that says "Nimble's Christmas". It is 8 inches tall and 5 1/2 inches wide.He looks cute sitting on the table but the back of the bucket is flat so it will hang nicely too. He is just so Adorable. He comes from a Smoke Free Home.

Primitive Gingerbread Ornie

Gingerbread Boys, and of course, Girls are one of my favorite Holiday Items. I made This one using a Patti's Ratties Pattern, with my own ideas and touches. I made it a pinch larger. It is about 6" x 7 " depending on the way you position it. I used quilt shop fabric for the body.

All the little details, including the ric rac,(for icing), are handstitched on. The little gal was so much fun to make! I added a homespun bow on her head, and around her neck. The little tag is made by Di, here on ebay. The smell is the best!! As always, All my items come from a smoke free home. They are alway handstitched by me with care. Thanks for stopping by.

Handpainted Prim Peppermint Trio Pillow

This charming pillow is handpainted and comes to you signed and dated on the muslin back. I have painted 3 peppermints onto the muslin area of the machine pieced pillow front. I used 2 different berry plaid homespun fabrics for the pieced edges. Each peppermint is embellished with a small rusty jingle bell and I have spattered the design for that great prim look that we all love.

I have attached one of my muslin tags that reads "Peppermint" and features a painted edging and a small rusty bell. A black plaid homespun bow finishes off this pillow's prim design.

This pillow will look great in your Primitive or Country home this Christmas season.

Primitive Iron Ladle Door Greeter Snata Ornie

Today I am offering this one of a kind Santa door greeter. I found this wonderful old iron spoon at an antique store. It is a hand forged iron piece, not factory made.The handle is 11 inches long to where it meets the round spoon part. The spoon is a strainer with holes in it and it measures 6-1/2 inches round. This is a very nice heavy piece. I have wired on a very nice little wreath of red pip berries. I have also wired on in the middle of the wreath a santa head made from unbleached muslin. His eyes are painted on, his cheeks are blushed and he has a little wood nose. His hat is a red and green plaid fabric. At the end of his hat is a rusty bell pinned on with a rusty safety pin. He is such a cute santa and was made by a wonderful artist here on ebay.

This is a very long piece and measures about 19 inches long and about 10 inches wide including pip berries.

To give you an idea of what this spoon looks like here is the backside. You can see where I've wired on everything.

The top part of the handle has a very nice curve. I will include a jute loop for hanging. It hangs very nicely!

What a great piece to add to your holiday prim decor!
