Kitchen Witch Creed

Look who's landed in your kitchen
Bringing fortune to your home
It's me the lucky kitchen witch
Your special little gnome

I'll end burnt pots
I'll keep meals hot
I'll do such magic chores
For I'm your lucky kitchen witch
Keep me safe by your kitchen door

BETSEY always welcomed us home with a her homemade yummy~ special ~ apple pie.  She knew her son-in-law and granddaughters were looking forward to it every year.  Once the girls learned how to cook, making homemade apple pies became a contest! It was a fun time for everyone!

Betsey is 9" tall and is needle felted with 100% wool. The core is a Romney wool around a wire base.   Her dress is needle felted from natural Black Welsh Mountain wool fibers. The red of her apple apron and her shoes are needle felted with a natural dyed Corriedale wool.  Her hair is shaped in a bun and accessorized with a apple red bow. It is felted with a natural grey Lincoln wool from Wisconsin.  A basket of apples is by her feet.

Each one of my pieces wear a Made With Love heart.

Needle Felted Baby African Elephant One Of A Kind handmade in USA

My new baby African elephant.  Can you believe??? This creature of Africa started out to be a Cat!

She has large fan like ears, a long trunk - altho I'm pretty sure it will grow longer as she grows bigger- 4 toenails in the front and 5 in the toenails back.   She is a cutie to add to your Elephant collection! Or she's a cutie to Start a collection!

This baby elephant stands about 5" from the top of the head, a little more for the ears, by 6" - give or take from the tip of the ears to the back legs x4" wide. She has been needle felted with a natural gray Romney combed wool.  It looks very much like to natural color of an elephant AND has that new baby hairy look.

I'm not always so Political --  However -- How many other Republican friends do you know with a Homemade, Handmade Needle Felted Elephant in their collections?  AND with All USA materials?

You can find her on my etsy site for sale  $55.00 
Interested in purchasing her?   She is   ONE Of A KIND send me a message on etsy
