Pumpkin, peaches, apple piiiiieeee....

BBBBRRRR.....This lil "Walnut Head" Primitive snowman is one of several in the workshop Im having a blast making. I think he came in for a piece of pie and to listen to some of my Christmas tunes Ive got crooning to me while I paint, sew...ohhh and (fake)bake! Ill introduce you to his brothers & sisters as they each come to life. They are adoreable placed around in a variety of special places in my home, peeking out here, & or there. Ive got a couple sitting on my all year around prim tree. Too cute.
Theyre each only 10 inches tall & all wear flannel, fleece, or wool sweaters with handsewn mittens, and smell so spicy good. These are also good sellers at craft fairs, great Secret Santa gifts & fit right in on any Holiday tree. These little snowmen are only $14.00 each before S&H.

I know..... I know....I changed the words of the song to introduce my apple pies....
Pumpkins, peaches, apple piiieeee.....can ya hear me hummin????
Can you smell the delicious aroma in my kitchen? mmmmmm.

These faux pot pourrie apple pies are always great sellers, especially during this time of year. Great gift idea to delight the lucky hostess with if your going to someones house for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

They are an excellent addition to your country kitchen, primitive pie safe, sitting on your stove top, or resting on the dining room table. They sell so well because in addition to being so "primitive alluring", they are practical. Ive made them especially safe to put in a preheated warm or 200' (only) oven on those evenings when youve made a delicious but perhaps ( lingering evidence of a delicious but "stinky" fish, cabbage, or garlic, recipie) after baking in this very low temp oven for about 15 minutes (no more) you remove, & your entire kitchen smells of cinnamon & apples. Only minor disappointment when there isnt actually a warm apple pie to delve into.

They measure 9 inches by 9inches & sit about 4 1/2 inches tall. They are quite heavy since they are made in a clay bottom planter that I utilize as a pie dish.

They can be refreshed by adding a couple of drops of cinnamon or applespice oil directly in the center of the tulle, & pot pourrie, under the felt woven crust, you can purchase in some grocery stores and in all craft stores. I refresh mine about every 3d time I use it. These awesome pies are only $18.00 each before S&H. If anyones' interested in purchasing these... or any of my work, please feel free to email me at;
