Franny the Snow Witch




Franny the Snow Witch came to life one day,
when some witches in the village went out for winter play.
Her body they made from snowballs, big and round.
For her nose they used a carrot they had found.
After placing the coal for her mouth and her eyes,
"Something is missing!", the oldest witch sighs.
Removing from her head a hat pointed and worn,
then placing it on Franny's and POOF, she was born!
Quickly they worked to build her familiar,
a cat named Snowball that looked quite peculiar.
Franny the snow witch came to life that day indeed,
to remind us of the magic of winter, the witches all agreed!



Franny is a friendly witch, she loves to sit and watch the birds all day long.


She measures 13" x 7" and both her and her kitty can be easily removed from their base.

You can't see it in the photos,
but she has touches of diamond dust glitter and mica flakes all around her.
She can come live with you for $99. She will travel for free if you live in the US
Please email me if you would like to give her a new home.

I have a few other Halloween pieces for sale in my Etsy Shop including a wonderful folk art Sleepy Hollow painting that's one of my favorites!

I am working on a new Halloween sculpture this week, a large owl on a pumpkin!
Here's a work in progress photo...

Jen, that settles it! There is NO project that you take on that you are not STELLAR at! Can I have envy? Even if it's, like, friendly envy? :) I LOVE THEM, and I cannot wait to see the finished owl piece!

The snowman is sweet but the owl looks beautiful even, it is not ready yet.
I wonder how it looks when you have finished it.
Have a great week

Franny is cute; but I think I am in love with the owl. What medium do you use? The only sculpture I do is wood carving, and am best at relief.

Thanks for all the nice comments about my owl. He's made out of Creative Paperclay and Celluclay.
He's just about dry now, guess I need to start painting!
