For a former vegetarian, I have one of the strangest collections ever. Ceramic matadors. But that’s another post.

The ridiculously gaudy statues inspired one of my latest softie creations, a stuffed matador and cow. And later, a matching cowboy and cow to go with.

Matador, cows, cowboy

My ridiculous collection of matadors also inspired an early, perfect Valentine’s day gift from my husband – a red ceramic bull. Awesome.

The perfect gift, the perfect chicken and the perfect fit Garden plans

    Oh my gosh… These are ADORABLE! 🙂 Did they inspire the Doctor puppet you made from felt in a more recent post?

    Thank you! They did inspire the doctor puppet – I’ve been kind of on a felt creation rampage and still have more to post, haha. The doctor puppet came to be when I ran out of polyfill and still had a lot of felt … plus a lifetime love for puppets.

    Thank you so much for your sweet comments!

    My 8 year old daughter does stuffed toys like Imelda Marcos did shoes (or would, if I let her) I have to stop her from seeing that blue cow .. she’d be all over it and pestering for one too LOL. I have to admit that I like that one too… made me smile. An excellent blog that is a very good read indeed, keep up the good work, I’m bookmarking your page. kind regards… kiwidutch 🙂

About me

My name is Mallory Murray and I have a love of all things oldfashioned. I'm a modern day feminist who also adores Martha Stewart. Read on for my sewing, crochet, cooking, gardening, quilting and crafting projects. I am the chief officer of marketing and design at Northwest Missouri State University, so expect the occasional random post about marketing/universities/design. I dream of a hobby farm with baby doll sheep, a sheep dog, a small flock of chickens, and other animals to be announced. I'm also a Pitt State grad, football lover, HGTV addict and obsessed with the color aqua.
