Yes, he's at it again ... Willy just can't sleep until he's seen Santa for himself (and handed over his list in person.

Jared's all curled up in a ball seemingly snoozing -- but somehow I suspect he's just playing possum.

View Jared and Willy (and a few extra surprises) on Ebay this week by clicking the Cheshire Cat link that blinks to the right of the posts!

A Nightmare Before Christmas

Yeah, yeah, we know, the season's way past ...

... the color's aren't orange and black this time of year ...

End of the Season Sale!

Yes, that's right ... it's time for the official Cordwood Cabin Primitives end-of-the-season sale! Not only will there be goodies from various holidays (including a sneaky peak into this year's "Hard Times" handmades) --

-- but it's all for a good cause, too. This year a percentage from each auction will be donated to a charity, including animal-friendly organizations in honor of our furry friends during this hard times.

A Hard Times Homespun Angel
(made special this week)

The importance of supporting animal shelters, no-kill havens, and animal rescue groups is greater than ever, given the difficult economic times which leave many pets homeless, abandoned, or neglected due to financial reasons.

Our own sweet babies, former shelter dog Jackie (and previously homeless George, too) are excited about tonight's listings, which include a set of "Hard Times" Homespun Angel ornies crafted especially for this sale ... and yes, the starting price remains $3.99 for three Christmas ornies, plus low first-class postage for shipping.

(My own favorite Homespun Angel, with her serious little smile)
The Queen of Hearts' Knave is doing back flips in his excitement ... or maybe that's just relief from all that time he spends as a wicket. Dumb royal croquet rules --

-- whoever heard of a hedgehog ball?

The Cordwood Cats Speak their Minds

Advice from Mouse ...

"When waiting for big game to stalk your way, assume a nonchalant attitude. It doesn't pay to be too eager in your expectations."

.... and Advice from George

"Let yourself go while playing; wild abandon now and then is good for the furry soul."

A Few More of our Favorite Things ...

Choosing a few of our favorite fall things is always a challenge, but here goes ...

Halloween Vintage-y Things

There's nothing better than an old-fashioned Halloween ... and no better place to find reminders than old-fashioned Halloween cards. Our friends at Vintage Holiday Crafts (under our bottom "links" list on the right) has some of the best vintage images available for free. Just obey their rules for using them, please.

Our Spooky Friends from the Past
Recalling our favorite cool dolls of old, from the original "Haunted Hollows" series to the "Ghostly Gallows" and "Page Phantoms" well-beloved. Favorites like morbid "Edwin Drood" below still appear in our photo slideshows and online buttons in memory of their original debut.

A Well-Contended Cat

The sight of little George (grown bigger over the last few months), and the other Cabin cats curled up in baskets or stretched out on the porch tables. What better place for a cat to sleep than curled up in a pantry shelf?

Peek-A-Boo Halloween

Who's that strange little pumpkin ghoul peering at us?...

Why, it's only Isabel beneath that paper mask!

Old-fashioned Isabel (and her brother Billy) are dressed up in their quaint Halloween costumes just in time to go trick-or-treating. Visit Isabel HERE (and stay tuned to see pictures of Billy the Pirate soon).

Marie Laveau

Maybe it's the hair ...

or the warts ...

... or is it something in her personality that's keeping her single?

Marie Laveau, in all her vodou glory, is in search of another husband this Halloween, in one of the final sculpted primitive dolls this Halloween from the Cabin. See more pictures of her HERE this week.
