Autumn Harvest

This is the latest figure in a series of seasonal women.  I think of her as Mrs. Santa in her everyday working clothes but she really is any peasant woman.  The inspiration for her costume has Scandinavian origins though I haven't adhered to any particular national costume. I simply enjoy this style and in particular the freedom of color choices.  The trug, her garden basket, was purchased from Jane Graber and the vegetables are from Twin Heart.
