THE PRIMITIVE BUCKET...

Second installment of the snowman swap gifts brings this wee little snowgirl from my dear friend, Joleen Locke.  I LOVE this tiny little creation - she is 7-1/2" tall from head to toes; about 5-1/2" inches seated.  Her four-section head is PING PONG BALL size - believe me, the sectioned heads are a feat in and of themselves, let alone when they are that size!  Hand embroidered features, a polymer clay nose, vintage quilt dress, antique key and LOTS of glitter make for one happy snowgirl, and her pet crow.
 
As if the snowgirl wasn't enough, she included some prim 'gingers' in the package - they smell good enough to eat, and look like they just came off the cookie tray.  Joleen can be found at  THE PRIMITIVE BUCKET - she has had a very good year on the craft show circuit, and her work is exceptional...lots of loving attention paid to detail - she pours her heart into her work.
Thank you, 'Sis' - I love her SO much - HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY, TOO!  Hope it's wonderful.
