Soft in the Head


                 

 Mrs. Butters

After a long day in the garden "Mrs. Butters" is bringing in her new crop of fresh carrots to clean and cook for dinner.  There is nothing better than fresh veggies from your own garden.

"Mrs. Butters" is a smaller version of an old favorite, she stands only 9" tall.  She is made from painted osnaburg and mounted to a wood base.  Her face is needle sculpted with sisal whiskers and clay eyes.  She wears a wool felt hat with ribbon accents.  Her dress is made using a colonial print with  an osnaburg apron, vintage netting petticoat and flannel sleeves.  In Mrs. Butters pos-able arm she carries a rusty wire basket filled with wool carrots and sisal grass.  The wire basket was made by a dear friend Amy Shorter.   Amy makes the best baskets!

“Mrs. Butters” is an original Soft in the Head design by P.K. Gracia and will come signed and dated.

Like all “Soft in the Head” characters this is not for children under 12 but for collectors and decoration only.

 "Biddy Bits"

Little "Biddy Bits" is a raggedy bit of a bunny.  She is made from dyed osnaburg .  Her arms and legs are attached with buttons and she wears a dress made from scraps of dotted fabric.  She is weighted to sit and only measures 8" tall when sitting.  She has flax for hair and a wool bow.  Her eyes are antique shoe buttons and her face is stitched and she has a  wool felt nose.  "Biddy" sits inside a painted mache egg that is also stained and waxed.   This is a sweet little bunny for that primitive collector.
