Smoosh Magic


There is something about clay
that I truly love.
while I may sit down and think...
I'm making a 
Pumpkin Ladye today-
in smooshing the clay around a bit, 
magic can happen instantly.

You see, 
the clay tore a bit at her mouth~
and suddenly her spirit emerged.

Perfect for my Early Work Mercantile 
offering!


When bringing her to life, 
I had a conversation earlier with a friend~
and old cabinet cards.
Sepia....

so what can be more Prim
 than 
a brown Pumpkin???

She is truly a favorite ~ so dainty and delicate.


Smoosh Magic happened once again...
as I thought "rabbit"
and played around with the muzzle~
Smoosh Magic..


My Adirondack heart
came through
in one of my most unusual 
Ladyes.


I fell in love
every
step
of
the
way.


As we enjoy 
getting out
here and there...
and putting together our vision of 
The Goode Wife
for 
in September~


the
Smoosh Magic
continues....

And when my hands are not 
in clay~

they are making magic stitches.



This one of a kind,
Sleepy Mouse
is 
napping on a flocked damask
Witche's Shoe.
(She's still 
available on 

While it may seem 
quiet around here,
it isn't really.

It's magical.
