I Do Special Primitive Orders ~ Custom Orders Too!

by Margo on Monday, February 8, 2010

I have a lot of people who contact me looking for a certain primitive bowl filler or primitive ornie (perhaps a certain color, fabric, etc).

If I can do a special order for you, just send me an email via the “Contact Me” link above.  Please be as descriptive as possible (size, color, how many) and I will be happy to quote you a price.  I will quote you a price and even send you photos of the fabric if you wish.

Once you have indicated your items, quantities, etc. and I have furnished you with my price, I will then issue you a PayPal invoice.  It’s quick and so simple.  I can typically offer a better price too when we do a custom order as I have no eBay or Etsy listing fees to pay which in turn saves the customer $$.  Who doesn’t like to save $$.

Contact me today for your quote.


Are you ready for a Primitive Halloween?

by Margo on Friday, August 9, 2013

Celebrate the fall season with a set of 3 jack-o-lanterns. They are primitive and perfect for your bowls, baskets, cupboard tucks and more. These jack-o-lantern ornies/bowl fillers are made from tonal cotton fabric in colors of black, orange and beige. Each pumpkin has been meticulously machine stitched and stuffed with polyester fiberfill. After the pumpkins have been stitched and stuffed I have hand stitched eyes, added a piece of painted osnaburg fabric for the nose and hand stitched black embroidery floss around the nose, added jute twine for the mouth and hand stitched the jute with black embroidery floss. I have added a tree twig for the stem and grunged each pumpkin really well in a coffee, cinnamon and vanilla solution to make them look olde and primitive.

These primitive pumpkins would be a perfect accompaniment for your fall decorating.

A prim hang tag shall included with this purchase. Hang tag shall coordinate with the pumpkin theme.

Prim Pumpkins measure approximately: (from tip of stem to bottom of pumpkin)

Smallest: 5 3/4″ Height x 3 1/2″ Across

Middle Size Pumpkin: 7 1/2″ Height x 3 3/4″ across

Largest: 8″ Height x 3″ Across

Each pumpkin is approximately 1 1/4″ in thickness.

So prim and there’s just lots of things you can do with these handmade pumpkins. They’re wonderful for tossing in your bowls and baskets, tucked in your cupboards and shelves and also a great decorating item for your holiday trees or dressing up a seasonal wreath.

Comes from my smoke free home.

You will receive 3 assorted size pumpkin ornies with hang tag as described above. Other items which may appear in photos are for display purposes only and not included.

This is a made to order item and am currently taking orders for a set of 3 assorted jack-o-lanterns for the special price of $19.99. Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing a set. Shipping is included in the price for addresses within the United States. International customers are welcome to contact me for shipping costs.

Please allow 3 to 5 business days for completion of your jack-o-lanterns.

Thanks extended to Chestnut Junction for pattern design.

Holiday Snowman Bottle Caps

by Margo on Sunday, July 22, 2012

Get ready for the holidays with this holiday snowman special. A set of 6 white bottle caps with hand drawn snowman faces. I have hand designed the snowman face and glued the image inside the bottle cap. An epoxy resin drop sticker has been added for additional protection. Because of their hand drawn design, no two snowman faces are identical. A perfect additional for the snowman collector.

This set can be used as ornies for a small holiday tree or to use with your gifts. Great to tie on holiday treats, add to a wreath, tie on a basket or perhaps hanging from pegboards.  You will receive 6 bottle caps snowman faces similar to those in the photos. Bottle caps measure 1 1/4 inches in height and the white color is found on both sides. A white cotton string will be added to each bottle cap. Visit my eBay Store for more information.
