This is a original 12 x 12 mixed media painting on canvas. I've created this painting using layers of late 1800's advertising, various elements including paint, paper, ink and buttons. The colors are vibrant! The edges are painted so it's ready to hang and will come signed and dated.
Sapponified oils of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter,Castor Oil, Palm Oil (sustainable) Flaxseed Oil, Olive Oil! Crushed Rose Hips, Juniper Berries, Sesame Seeds, Hibiscus Flower, Myrtle Leaf and Blackberries!! Fresh, clean and tantalizing you'll want to take a bite (but don't) Unique aroma! This could be used year round.
This is a design by Kentucky Primitives, made by me, Heidi Gianino Aka CraBByGaBBy. Made from stained and painted muslin this whimsical snow man stands in at 23 1/2 inches from bottom of base screwed into place to tippy top of hat secured into place. He sits upon an old wood banister spindle that is secured to a base so he wont topple over. the torso and head is worn muslin with lots of steps to get it all "crackle" like. Arms are sticks that sewn in place and glass glittered. He features a real carrot nose secured into place. Hand drawn eyes and mouth. On his chest is the "winter months".
This guy is made of muslin,sanded,stained and baked. His nose is a twig sewn on, his mouth is butcher's twine sewn on with crochet thread. His eyes are stitched on and he has twigs for arms. He's a lil rag-stuffed to give him abit of weight so he doesn't go flapping in the wind like some wild turkey. He measures just about 18 inches long..about 21 inches wide with his arms.

These two chaps have been having a blast helping Santa in his workshop. Made from my own pattern, they stand roughly 12" and 13". Their faces are clay, and they have wool facial hair. Would look great on a mantel or anywhere you would like to add fun and folky touches of the holidays.

There is grungy cheesecloth in natural and blackened cheesecloth tied at his base.

This would make a wonderful addition to any Halloween collection! Mr. Katz is 12" tall. I crafted his head from paper mache and painted him out in the vintage, German style.
His body is plush and he carries a little Jack pail that I also painted in the vintage style, with added, black glitter inside. He is one of a kind, and you are sure to love him!
I have to admit that I just love owls! My Mother had a few in her collection that I loved to play with as a child. When she wasn't looking of course (:
These are both made of muslin, painted, sanded, stained and baked..and eXtreMely gruNged! Their eyes are buttons stitched over osnaburg,which has been stitched on also. The owl has a gruNgy candy corn,wired to him with rusty star garland, the Cat has a gruNgy pumpkin attached with the same rusty star garland. They each have teensy weensy rusty bells sewn to their hats. And scraps of gruNgy cheesecloth around their hats and necks..they are just adorable..I love the way their eyes look to the side, as tho they just heard something very SPOOKY..perfect for a small place,or as gifties, or to tuck in a wreath, these lil darlings measure just over 12 inches high and 4 1/4th inches wide.
What a sweet snowman this is! I think he turned out adorable!

He is 8 inches wide.

These little cupboard tuck witches are just the cutest and are perfect little prim touches for your Halloween decorating. They look great on a window sill, shelf or tucked into a grapevine wreath for instant Halloween charm.
They are unique and are both one of a kind creations. They are crafted from cotton fabric stuffed firm with polyfill and have a generous amount of poly pellets in the bottom to sit firmly. I have sealed them all over with a matte finish for durability. The arms are attached with vintage buttons and each has her own witch sign stamped and stitched to her chest.
"Pumpkin Cat" is a One Of A Kind, Original, Mixed Media, Folky & Prim Painting by Lisa's Attic Art Treasures!
I started with a gallery wrapped canvas, painted it black, sealed it, applied aged burlap to the front, painted on my design, added shading and highlights, and sealed the piece again. Then I added real Austria Crystals (they sparkle like diamonds) for the eye highlights, aged & painted cotton batting leaves with a crispy effect, rusty wire tendrils, and painted beading wire whiskers. All of the elements combined give the piece a very Unique look!
This is my latest design. It has been made with prim halloween fabrics from one of my local quilt shops. It's an adaptation of a more traditional dresden plate....this one only has eight petals, I love how it makes almost an inner square design. It has been machine pieced and quilted with thin batting.
It measures 13" point to point, a nice size for a candle mat.
Old Agatha was just a zooooo Ming..cackling like nobody's business,laughing at the moon ,who gave her a wink as she went flying by..so smitten by his flirtations, she didn't notice that she was headed for a grove of towering pines..but poor lil who done it certainly did! Lucky for her when Aggies boot came flying off she landed in it,and was saved when the laces caught on a tree bough. She could only think it would be much safer for her and old Agatha,if she would wear night vision goggles..on these little trips!
This my design,I will make a pattern for her today :)
She is made of muslin,painted,sanded, grunged, and baked. She has vintage buttons for eyes, stitched over osnaburg and black wool. Her face is needle-sculpted, her whiskers are crochet thread ( but could easily be made of rusty wire,if you like) . Her collar is fall colored homespun. I couldn't resist the lace, but its only tacked on,so you can remove it if you like.I've also attached a hang-tag. I've sewn vintage buttons down the lenght of the boot. There's a rusty bell sewn to the tip of the toe. Her hat has a swirl of small rusty stars around it, with a rusty bell sewn on top. She measures just a lil over 24 inches high and she is 6 1/2 inches..at her widest point,being the sole of the boot.

How cute is this!? It's a chicken waterer that measures 9 1/4 inches tall and 8 inches across the base. The base is a thick pink plastic and the water holder is glass. Use it for your chickens. Or I could see this as a centerpiece, drill a hole in the bottom and put in a flicker light or sanitize it and use it as a candy holder. The possiblities are endless and trust me, I've eyed this for a bit now before deciding to list it because I just want to keep it for myself...(: It has one small piece of plastic on the interior base that is chipped off however you can't see it unless you take off the glass and are looking for it. It doesn't detract from it's functionality or it's looks.
Could this little gal be any sweeter? Her name is Sarah and she is 15 1/2" tall, and comes with her own prim hen! This is a round head doll, made from cloth with a painted finish. After her body and face were painted, she was then given a wash of antique. Her clothes are cottons that were stained with coffee, vanilla and cinnamon. The pictures don't show what a nice prim look she has. The hen was also painted and stained. Her hair is a brown dizzy frizzy, she has painted shoes and two vintage buttons on her apron. Her dress is a nice spice country red. Her eyes were finished off with Crystal laquer for a more realistic look. I love the adorable size of this doll.

This guy is an original design. May be hung on your protected door, cupboard, cabinet side, trunk front, wall above your mantle, or may be propped up in an old chair, display case, or shelf.
The Moon Man measures a Large 14" Tall - 10 1/2" Wide - & 2 1/2" Deep. He is made from aged and painted muslin. His features are painted on with my special rusting paste mixture and the whole piece has been sealed. I added a large, rusty jingle bell to the top for a cap-like appearance and he has been dusted with a generous coating of mica flakes for a vintage look.
A nice accessory for your wardrobe, these quilted pins are made with quilt shop fabric. The top hat snowman is about 2" wide and 3" tall. Their fronts have been paper pieced for precision, the backs are finished with a piece of fabric that matches the background of the front and it's been quilted. There is a pin back hand sewn on, no glue! The faces on the snowmen have been painted on using acrylic paints.

Up for your consideration is Alma and Her Pin Keep. A design by Pine Berry Lane and made by me, Heidi Gianino aka CraBBy GaBBy Dolls.
Made from stained and painted muslin, this gal is the perfect size to put anywhere! she measures in at 16 inches. her eyes are stiched and mouth is stitched. Nose sculpted. She has flax hair stitched into place. Her dress is ticking and osnaburg.
This wall/door hanging is approx. 11"x13" with a double metal chain, 2 large buttons, 4 metal spider charms, black clips along 3 sides and a pretty orange bow on the black hat. Cross stitch is done all in black.
Cross stitch pillow, approx. 9"x10". One silver button and two small charms that say Be Yourself, and Love Much. Pillow fabric is red/sky blue and beige. Stitching is sky blue and beige.
Approx. 5"x11" this cross stitch bag is great on a shelf. Bag is black and orange stripe with cross stitch panel, pretty bow, buttons and clips to attach it to bag.
This Fall cutie is 9 ¼” tall to the top of his glass votive holder. He was made using a wooden base that was painted, then stained to give it a more worn look. His head is sculpted using an air-dry clay, painted, stained and a clear protective finish applied. His little tag is made of air-dry clay, then a pumpkin face was applied using deco podge. This one-of-a-kind piece is signed, dated and numbered 1//1 on the bottom. The glass votive holder and candle are included, and of course removable. A tea light would also work. If you don’t want to burn a candle, then use your imagination and add whatever you’d like, for instance some potpourri or dried greenery. He will add warmth and charm to any Fall décor, not to mention a few smiles and giggles!
Don't you just love fall! I love the cooler weather (before nasty winter arrives) and the pretty fall colors. This is made from eight quilt shop fabrics, two each prim orange, green, gold and plum. It measures 24" from point to point. The "blades" were machine pieced with the center circle appliqued before it was machine quilted. This will look lovely on a table or counter, giving a bit of fall color.
This design will appear again in the future, but this is the only time it will be made with these individual fabrics.
I love these guys, they make me smile. Made with 'heathered (there are flecks of black in each color)' sage, denim and cranberry felt for the mitten and wool felt for the snowman, these fellas would look great on a tree, a peg rack, or hung across your window for a holiday touch. The white wool felt has been washed to give it an extra nubby, prim effect.
You'll get all three mittens, one in each color. The measure about 9" from top to bottom and are about 4" wide at the bottom of the snowman (excluding the thumb area).

The weather says it's summer but the stores are beginning to stock for Christmas...it won't be long and it will be here! This almost 15" in diameter quilted tree skirt is a nice size for a table top tree. Made in soft, prim shades of primarily red and green fabrics, it will make a perfect addition to your holiday decor.
The design may appear for sale again, but not in these colors, this is the only one I will have available in these fabrics.
