New Easter Collectibles from Artist Lori Mitchell


The Easter holiday comes early this year, so get ready to celebrate with the new Easter collectibles fromĀ Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. Whether adding to your own personal collection or giving as a cute Easter gift idea, these new sculptures will add whimsy and interest to a shelf or mantle space in the home. Collectors of artist and designer Lori Mitchell will not be disappointed; learn more on this talented artist below.

Penelopeep

Pictured here to the left is our Penelopeep Sculpture. Appropriately named “Penelopeep,” this baby chick is painted yellow and orange. Wearing a striped dress with pink ruffled skirt and bloomers, her outfit is complete with matching pink bow. Penelopeep holds a wand of sorts with a cute bunny head, attached with lime green string. Standing on a green “grass” base her stick legs are one of the many whimsical touches we have come to appreciate over the years from this designer. Now during our Annual Spring Sale, customers can purchase Penelopeep for just $29.95.

Bobby Bunny

Shown here to the right is perhaps a more notable character of the season, introducing our Bobby Bunny Sculpture. Bobby is a skinny white rabbit with the signature rosy pink cheeks we have come to expect from Lori’s designs. He wears an outfit that seems strait out of the book Old Mother West Wind, where Peter Rabbit takes on a good amount of personification; his attire speaks for itself. A blue overcoat and bow tie are the finishing touches on this bunny’s pinstripe pants. Bobby holds none other than a woven basket, filled with pastel colored Easter eggs. Now during our Annual Spring Sale, customers can purchase Bobby Bunny for the low price of $34.95.

Both of these new Easter and springtime collectibles are originally handcrafted and hand painted, and are then reproduced of 100% resin material.

Folk Artist Lori Mitchell

Lori Mitchell was born and raised in Marietta, Georgia. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Lori has always been inspired by children’s themes and literature, old illustrations and toys. In 1999 she began making her first paper-mache pieces for the folk art world and has never looked back.
