I promised Debra, at Common Ground, that I would start participating in Vintage Inspired Friday, but haven’t had a spare moment to create anything myself this week. So, I’m going to share some of the collectibles of a very talented woman—Debbee Thibault.
I’ve featured Debbee’s creations at my shop ever since I opened my doors in Nov, 2004. Her talent and personality comes thru in each of her figurines.
In her catalog, she states, “My work comes from an imagination that was sparked by a love for old toys in my early childhood. After years of research on the making of antique toys and folk art, I began creating holiday items using similar methods. The whimsy of my work touches the child that lives in each one of us. Each piece is completely handmade in a limited edition of 2500 or less. My designs are recreated in a paper composition, and like a fingerprint, each piece is truly unique.”
Enjoy . . .
This guy is called, “I’m a Little Teapot.” How cute is this little rabbit? He’s numbered 63/300
Here is “Keeper of the Bees”—her hive opens like a trinket box. She’s #119/500
This is my all time favorite Santa, “Wintergreen Santa.” #143/500
“A Little Firey Cracker”—couldn’t get the camera to focus. She’s #295/1000.
“Keeper of the Family Dress”—she has a very special assignment, she’s # 141 of an edition 500.
This snowman looks like he’s about to tumble over, his name is “A Little Snowy Guy” is 130/500.
This guy is “The Hearty Snowman.” He’s got the traditional corn cob pipe and top hat! He’s 1072/2500.
“The Keepsake Angel” would be a great addition to any collector’s inventory. She’s number 1585/2500.
Hop over to Debra’s site for Vintage Inspired Friday.
Next week I’ll share something I’ve done or purchased—there’s got to be more time . . . maybe . . .
Thanks for your indulgence,
