New cards in the shop

I am happy to announce that three new cards have just been added to my Etsy ShopSelf Portrait, Felt Pins and Cheese Straws (Recipe included). During 2020, more customers visited and purchased items from the shop than any previous year. It helped that my new book, MY BED came out and that an image of Birds of Beebe Woods went viral on Facebook and Instagram, sending flocks of fervent birders to my site.

After years of requests, I finally got around to designing a note card of Self Portrait: A Personal History of Fashion! It took so long because I couldn’t decide which portion of the spiral to zero in on. I knew that the figures would get lost if the whole image was printed on a small card. So, I cropped out a section with fashions that viewers consistently remark on – the peasant blouse, patched jeans, alpaca poncho and granny dress from the 60’s and 70’s, as well as the dolls that years when my children were physically attached to me.

The original Self Portrait will be heading south this spring, to the Upcountry History Museum in Greenville SC, where it will be included in my exhibition, Salley Mavor: Social Fabric. On display will be a variety of pieces I’ve made over the past 20 years that interpret the theme of social connectivity. The works explore cultural diversity, migration, fashion, the natural world, and a range of social narratives, from the everyday to topical subjects. The work will be at the museum for a nice long stretch, from April 3 – Sept. 12, 2021.

Another new card, Felt Pins shows a collection of pins I made out of felt, beads, buttons and wee folk dolls about 20 years ago.

The felt pins were featured in the 1st edition (2003) of my how-to book, Felt Wee Folk: Enchanting Projects, which had directions for both wee folk dolls and several felt items. if you’re interested in this earlier edition, C&T Publishing sells print-on-demand and e-book versions of the book here. The newer all-doll 2nd edition (2015) of the book, Felt Wee Folk – New Adventures is available (with extra goodies) in my Etsy shop.

There’s also a Cheese Straws Note Card with a recipe for making cheese straws on the back. The scene pictured is from my newly refurbished doll house, which you can find out about on my blog here. I’ve written about the best cheese straws in the world on my blog here.

  1. I wish I could see your exhibition in South Carolina, Salley. I have your Wee Folks books and finally made a few little people myself. I’ve followed your work over the years and it’s always a delight to see what you create. Such intricate and beautiful miniature worlds and people.

  2. hello I just saw your posting of local birds and I am in love with them all (and everything of yours). Crows are my passion and I was wondering if you ever printed instructions on making one? Perhaps in your book?

    I live in North Andover but just couldn’t get to your show on the Cape due to Covid. I look forward to seeing your next show in Springfield?

    My grandaughters love My Bed book. And thanks for signing it!

    thank you Gayle Apkarian
