~Hello my Prim Friends
it's Glistynne here~
I shimmer in the lights of Christmas
whether from the tree or a candle in the window
my wings glisten like the
Fresh Fallen Snow
I have rusty bells all 'round my halo
to make your home ring with
Christmas Cheer

Glistynne is 16" tall.

Glistynne is ready for her prim Christmas home.  She is $25.00 plus Travel Fare & she'll be signed and dated.

~Primitive Tom Turkey Sitter~Thanksgiving Dinner?

Tom Turkey is nicely browned and ready to grace your Thanksgiving table...as a centerpiece, not on the carving tray ;)

Prim Tom's tail feathers and wings have lots of "feather" detail and he has been aged for an old timey look.

He is 10" tall to the tip of his tallest tail feather (say that 3 times really fast)

Tom Turkey is SOLD plus Travel Fare and will arrive signed and dated by me, his maker.

Let's Talk Turkey...do you know.....
Why a turkey has a waddle?

I didn't but now I do...
The turkey uses the waddle in 2 ways. One, it is a cooling device, when the weather is hot the turkey expands the waddle with blood so that it can cool down in the air. Second it is part of a display. Depending on how the turkey feels it may show the waddle to its fullest and reddest or hide it totally.

I found the answer at
