I have just finished my last Easter themed bear for this year, Elijah and his Friends"- it's listed on Ebay until Tuesday, April 7th. Elijah is a wee fellow, just 3 inches tall, made from hand-dyed and distressed German Shulte Mohair. He is fully jointed, has amber German glass eyes, waxed nose and shaded face, ears and paws. Elijah's paw pads are distress as well, with tiny holes for the excelsior to show through. He is firmly stuffed with excelsior and weighted with granulate and stainless steel shot.

Elijah comes with a handmade chalkware of a chick and cart. It was made from an antique mold in my collection. The chalkware comes in a paper mache box, that has been painted and decorated with a vintage reproduction Easter card. The Easter scene has been decorated with glitter and some silver foil swirls. You can see the auction by clicking on "Ebay Listings" under My Links.

I finally have some new seasonal jewelry and ornaments finished for my Etsy shop. They are made from vintage reporduction postcard images, meticulously decorated with glitter and/or silver foil swirls, and sealed between a piece of beveled glass and heavy acid free art paper, using lead free solder. The are strung with organza ribbon and signed on the back. I've added 5 to start and will be adding 5 tomorrow and the final 5 on Monday. You can see them in my Etsy shop by clicking on "Duffyantiques Etsy Shop" under My Links. Have a wonderful weekend!
