The Great October Fetch Giveaway

Thank you all for playing along, this round! Mr. John D. Jackalope is going home with:

Sparkless!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
October is known for entertaining marauding creatures, dressed sharply (or scantily) in the guise of their favourite mythical beings and otherworldly monsters. As the daylight hours fade and the earth gives up its last fiery show, this month feels inspiring for letting your most fetching fantasies come to life. In this next round of trick-or-treat, I have the perfect beast to help you navigate through this month of magic, and beyond. Is he a fetch, a cryptid, a poppet, a spirit house, or simply a bewitching guide on how to look good while finding your way through these October eves? The winner will get to decide.


In the words of his enchanting creator, Polly Lind:
"Introducing Mr John D. Jackalope, Star Path Navigator, Guide and Fetch extraordinaire.  He is a magician with the extraordinary ability to interpret and navigate the universal truths of both the world and the spirit realm. With his bag of ancient, star charts, spirits maps and bottles of strange substances, Mr Joh D works with the planetary pathways, stars and magic to take you deeper into the universal realm of spirits and deities.

Mr John D, is a fetch from the mythical Jackalope family. The Jackalope family are star navigators, and sky gazers.  They have the magical abilities to travel not just the spirit pathways of this world but can also travel the spirit pathways of the universe.  It is said that, in times gone by, the Jackalopes once served the Queen of England. "


Polly is an exceptional fabric artist who has cultivated her talent through many years of practice. She is as magical as she is accomplished in her art, and practices her own spirit-led work alongside her fascinations of needle and thread. I spotted her gorgeous art panels a few years ago which are highly sought after, but I was so curious about what inspired her to form these charming figures.
"Fetches Fairies and Poppets came into being because I wanted to create magical creatures of folklore and urban myth, and figures that could house their spirits.  And that they could become guardians and guides, while also being beautiful pieces of artwork, with exquisite magical detail, such as maps, books and the like.  I love creating these wee Fetches, Faeries and Poppets and sending them on their journeys around the world."


Mr. John D Jackalope is 56cm (approx 22 inches) from feet to handsome head, plus approx 10cm (4 inches) of antlers, and comes with his own satchel packed with materia magica. If you'd like to get your hands on him, simply leave a comment below or add your name to the hat via the "contact me" button up top. If you want to get your name in the draw a second time, just share the love of Polly's beautiful work in some fashion and let me know so I can add you again. I'll draw the name of his new housemate on Monday, October 16th at 8pm Pacific.

Please do visit Polly in all her assorted spots around the interwebs!
