I love creating Primitive & Folkart dolls and I incorporate that love into each and every handmade item I create. I simply love every minute of it! Here in my little home-based shop I value quality over quantity. I take my time and put lots of attention to detail into every single original One-Of-A-Kind 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 by myself. When you add one of my items to your home you can be assured that it was completely handcrafted by me and only me. I use only high quality materials to create my art. 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 very special. I use only non-toxic materials in the creation of my art 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 and vanilla. I use hypoallergenic stuffing and my items are created in a completely smoke free and clean environment. Of course: Every piece of art I create has to first receive Scampers "Kitten Paw Print of Approval" before it enters my shop! Scamper is one of our cats, and he loves to hang out on my work table to supervise and help with everything I do! Every piece of art is signed and dated by me, and stamped with a little paw print. 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 homes and families! God Bless, Wendy Marro

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!...
