Clem the Olde Mule
Vintage Wagon Hayride Harvest Goods & Candy Corn Field Mice
Appalachian folk artist
Simple Primitives done in the tradition of old
Thank you for stopping by. I have a wonderful olde prim
display perfect for autumn.
It was early morning in the country. Clem the olde mule
loaded his wagon full of hay to take his friends for a ride.
Clem threw on his farmer hat and his plaid handkerchief around his
neck and headed down the olde dirt road as he chewed on a piece of
straw. Around the corner waits his friends the candy corn
field mice with a big plump pumpkin and harvest corn.
The big pumpkin is painted muslin with a real stick for a stem.
It rests on top of the hay bale. In the back behind the
pumpkin are a few ears of harvest corn. The candy corn field
mice have been painted and grunged. Their little noses are
stitched on. They have beads for eyes, whiskers, their arms
are rusty safety pins. Their legs are heavy wire with little
black boots. Their little tails are rusty wire with candy
corn on the tips.
One little mouse sits on the plump pumpkin holding Clem's reigns,
which is made of thick thread. The other little mouse hops
on the back of the wagon. Clem the olde mule has thread
stitched eyes, sticks for legs and a twine plaided tail. His
harness is made of thick thread with a piece of leather holding it
together. This autumn prim display measures 24" long by 15"
The vintage wagon is made of
wood with vintage spoke wheels.
The display is decorated with dried moss, straw, and Spanish moss.
The olde sign reads:
Ye Ole' Harvest 1782
The candy corn mice are made
by a pattern from Soft in the Head.
God bless you.
This will come signed and
