But I love Halloween, and I love that feeling: the cold air, the spooky dangers lurking around the corner.
Who’s ready for Halloween? Well, Calabacín is. I know some of you may think is too early for trick or treating but hey! is only 2 months away. That’s nothing. Especially now with all the post office delays.
I must say I’m not a big fan of Halloween. I don’t like spooky things. I get scared really easily, and is not like a little scared, is more like I may die of a heart attack scared. I never watch scary movies and I don’t like scary stories. I don’t like scary costumes, demons, creepy witches, zombies, or anything of the sort. The only thing I’m ok with is cute little costumes for children and of course the candy! I also like carving pumpkins. So this is how this little man came to be.
Baby Calabacín is a magical carved pumpkin. We planted some pumpkins in our garden but since we are not very good with plants, none of them survived. I was already starting to clean the area to plant something else instead, and then I noticed something moving. That’s when I saw this sweet baby boy. He looked at me with the sweetest smile and when I opened my hand he hugged it so tight with his little vine arms. I fell in love immediately. Calabacín is always happy, always curious, always loving, always excited. His favorite holiday is Halloween and he wants to be a Jack-O-Lantern when he grows up but I’m not letting him play with fire just yet. Maybe his new mama can help him with that.
Calabacín is about 7 inches tall. His skin is organic cotton interlock hand dyed to orange and green. He has crocheted leaves as hands and feet. His stem is hand crocheted. His eyes and mouth are hand embroidered with cotton embroidery thread. His nose is a wool blend fabric hand sewn to the face. His head is stuffed with wool, needle felted, and soft sculpted. His body and arms are filled with clean wool as well. He has a little tushie and a belly button.
Calabacín will go home inside a hand crocheted wool bag and with a traveling little friend that I haven’t finished just yet. He wants a doll that looks like him.
You can see more photos of Calabacín on his album here.
Baby Calabacín is an art doll not a toy. He’s intended for gentle play by an adult collector or older child, 7 or older.
So of course, baby Calabacín is lookign for a new mom. He’s adoption fee is 165 USD plus shipping. Shipping inside Mexico is free to the US and Canada is 8 USDollars, to other parts of the world is 13 USDollars. There is now a new option of expedited shipping, if you would like to add that please let me know, so I can get a quote for you. Though I warn you it is not cheap.
If you would like to be Calabacín’s new mommy, make sure you comment on this post stating so. If there is more than one person interested I will draw a name. I will take entries for Calabacín until tomorrow Sunday August 16, 2020 at 4pm EST.
By commenting you agree that you are 18 years or older. Please do not comment on behalf of someone else, that is just not fair for others. Once a family has been chosen I will send a PayPal invoice that is due upon receipt.
Calabacín has found a loving home.
Hope you like this magical baby as much as I do. He will definitely make Halloween a little bit more magical. Thank you for stopping by to meet him.
