COZY CREEK PRIMITIVES-Creating Primitive & Folkart dolls are my passion. I love the simplicity of the Primitive style and the Whimsy of Folk Art! I incorporate that love into each and every handmade item I create. I simply love every minute of it! Here in my little shop I value quality over quantity. I put my whole heart, time, patience and lots of attention to detail into every single piece of art I create, along with imagination, uniqueness and whimsy! I don't have anyone working for me. I create each and every doll, every stitch, every detail from start to finish. When you add one of my items to your home you can be assured that it was completely handcrafted by me and only me. Not only do I put time and attention to detail into the appearance of my items, but also into the quality of the work itself and the materials used. I make sure that my items are solid, sturdy and well constructed. I realize that my items aren't just a decoration for one season, or one holiday. I know they will be brought out year after year, or on display every day of the year. Some will be given to loved ones and special friends as gifts or even handed down to children and grandchildren... they become part of a family and a home so I make sure each one is special. I also use only non-toxic materials in the creation of my items and nothing that I use has a chemical odor. The only scent my dolls will have are the wonderful, pleasant, heart-warming smells of coffee, tea, cinnamon or vanilla. My items are also from a completely smoke free environment. I enjoy knowing that the items I create with my whole heart, here in my home, surrounded by the love of my family, will be treasured by my customers as a part of their own home and family.

Primitive Handmade Bunny Rabbit Folkart Doll- Alexander Bunny

Good Morning Y'all!  Today we have little Alexander Bunny here to say "Hello!"

I LOVE How Alexander turned out. I didn't have a sitting bunny in mind when I started him, but he just kind of told me he wanted to sit down! 

He told me that he had beenn working in the garden ALL day, on his feet, and his legs were tired!He said he wanted to go sit on the bank by the creek and go fishing!
Look how cute he looks in his overalls  from behind!

Well, Alexander got his way! He's dressed in denim blue cotton print overalls that I made to look dirty and worn ( real denim would have been too hot for him with all that fur!)
He wears a little prim print scarf too.
He has black bead eyes and hand sewn features. His ears are adorable, and wired, so they can be up straight, bent down, or somewhere in between!

Alexander is made of fine plush fur that's gone through many creative steps to get him to the wonderful coloring that he has and to also give him an old time look, like he's been in an attic for a while, or maybe was a beloved childs toy for years and years!
He of course, has a large handmade carrot, after all, he'll need a little lunch while sitting by that creek!

Till next time!...
