Coming Soon!

This time of year it seems I barely emerge from the studio.
I'm not sure how I used to produce enough for multiple shows thru the year, 
my only excuse is that I'm older and my fingers are slower I guess!

I do hope you can join me on November 9th in Peninsula, Ohio
a fine folk art & antique show

Have a happy day,
Lori Ann

Hello there,
Can summer really be coming to an end?
I'm seeing hints in the leaves, the morning dew and the garden

It is bittersweet . . . but I do love fall and find so much 
inspiration in the colors to come.
Today's Wild Hare offering reflects those colors.

Should you like to purchase please send an email to:
(Please state by name and list payment method. Pay pal, CC or check)

3 velvet pumpkins & yet another tucked into the ribbon on top.
A ready made vignette for your fall display!
