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 Folkart Bunny Rabbit - Abigail Bunny Doll

"Abigail Bunny" Available in my Etsy Shop! 

I'm loving how little "Abigail" turned out!  I had in my mind while I was creating her, a little bunny that looked as though she has been out in the hot summer garden all day picking carrots!

Abigail looks like she was hard at work! Just look at how dirty her little dress got! And those little flushed cheeks! 

Her carrots are still dirty with garden soil she's gonna need to give them a good rinsing before nibbling on them! But for a bunny... every tasty carrot is worth the effort! I wonder what her mama is gonna say when she sees that dirty dress!

I love the stories that come out at the end of creating a new doll. I just look at a finished creation and  it's story speaks to me! 

Abigail Bunny is available in my Etsy Shop!

Till next time..
