I special ordered a sweet potato ornament to be my daughter's first Christmas ornament. It is perfect. It looks exactly like a sweet potato and is very well made. We decided to forgo traditional made-in-china cheap plastic and cliche baby ornaments for something more original and personal. Our daughter loves sweet potatoes, and we love this ornament!

Love these sparkling ornaments.
Cummings Mercantile, my home for contemporary folk art and primitive inspired decor.
My name is Kimberly and I am the owner/artist at CM. I have been painting and sculpting in both polymer clay and paper clay for many years under the name Pumpkin Tree Lane. My family recently relocated from Virginia to the Bay Area of California and with the move came the change to Cummings Mercantile (at Pumpkin Tree Lane).
My work is inspired both from nature and whatever stray thought passes through my mind, usually in the wee hours of the morning. My family are geeks by nature and that influence finds its way into much of my work. I grew up in rural Virginia and have a strong love for the Folk Art and Primitive Arts and Crafts style but add a more modern touch through the use of bold colors and themes.
Autumn, Halloween, and Christmas is my favorite time of year, and I love to create figures and ornaments that invoke both the playfulness and tradition of the holiday/season.
Paper clay is my medium of choice for my sculpting, though I have recently fallen in love with soft sculpture and will soon be adding a variety of art dolls and other pieces of home decor to go along side my paper clay offerings. Each piece is handmade without the use of molds. Primed, painted with care and sealed to protect the final finish when needed.
