Coming Soon!
  Cora is a little quirky, but very sweet! She loves fall and wears a tattered fall dress all year long. She wears a lovely hat she made from an old burlap sack. She says it keeps sun out of her eyes but most can see it’s her straggly hair that she is trying to hide! Cora lives alone and spends her evenings curled up in a big old wicker chair reading her favorite magazine A Primitive Place getting ideas for fall decorating. This keeps her content. Her pet crow named Horace follows her everywhere! Cora stands about 15" tall and will come signed and dated by the artist. Please note dresses in fall shades may vary. For ordering information, visit our website or you may email winterberryprimz@aol.com to order. $36.00 includes travel to US residents. To order, visit our website or email the artist at winterberryprimz@aol.com.

Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery
