Wild Orchard Guest Farm Welcome Sign

After a long and snowy Winter, and what has seemed like a very long wet Spring, the timing was finally right for Jeff to finish and install the new Welcome sign for Wild Orchard....It has surpassed all expectations (of course!) and is an amazing addition to the property.  The hand carving, the frame, the night light and the paint job, which is beautifully executed in the "perfect peacock" colors, make a stunning statement to welcome visitors to Wild Orchard.  Jeff has really outdone himself this time.  Proud as a Peacock sures comes to mind when gazing on it.  Thank you Jeff for a wonderful addition to Wild Orchard!

New Cow Lady Lamp

 The Folk Art Lamp collection keeps growing. This is Jeff's newest memeber...a charmng Lady sitting with a fresh pail of milk, a lamp and her beloved cow!

Jester Lamps....these guys are getting to be quite popular..both sold at the Morristown show to very happy customers who loved the lamp designs created in true Folk Art fashion...

Jeff's collection of ornaments is growing too...Jesters, Humpty Dumpty's, moons, fish lures he calls poppers, George Washington (shown left of the Jester) and a new design that sold out at the show..a Molly ornament, (shown lower left in a pink coat with boots and pocketbook.) She must be quite a shopper....hmmmmmmm

Part of Jeff's display for the booth includes this new "wall" to hang the "His heart on his sleeve," a two sided work with "faith, hope, and love," carved on both sides. The Love Bird Clock,  Sun & Moon tray, Chicken and Cow mini shelves and the Angel Clock...a real crowd pleaser....

Spring Craft Shows....

Jeff's booth display at the Artrider Craft  Show in Morristown New Jersey was full of some fun new designs...."Mr Grant's"  Boot plant holder....Jeff sells the sets of mini boots but this one is large enough to hold an ivy plant and looks great on his show podium.  In the background the mini boots can be seen displayed..

Wild Orchard Peacock Sign

Wild Orchard has been a "Guest Farm" for four years now without an outdoor sign to greet arriving guests.  Jeff designed this sign and it will be hung in the Spring with spotlights for nighttime viewing.  Meticulously carved and painted, an  eye-catching addition to the property and looks very much like our live peacocks, Admiral Bird and Pharaoh that live and roam the property of Wild Orchard.
