Hand carved magnets can add a smile to your kitchen while decorating your refrigerator; they can also be used in a number of other ways. they are eye catching in little frames. Character magnets are freestanding, nice to group on a shelf, line up on a window sill, or place under a plant. They can hang as ornaments with little metal strips or stand on little display stumps.
Magnets come in and one-of-kinds, small series and "old favorites".
The "Bunny With Blue Bird" is a one-of-kind.
One-of-kind means when I was carving it I made just one. A one-of-kind might remain the only one, or, depending on a lot of variables it might occur again in a slightly different form in the future. Because an idea that appeals to me now well might be an idea that appealed to me in the past, like a bird and bunny combination, there could be a past a version of a current "one-of-kind" out there. After thirty-some years of carving it is hard to remember them all!
"Cats Stink" magnets are an example of "old favorite".
Over time details have changed on this popular character but once they began I there hasn't been a Sunapee that I didn't have at least one or two. They always get smiles from passersby at the fair, who laugh and then read it out loud to their friend. I remember one year a mother saying "But you like cats!" to her young son who had just picked a "Cats Stink" magnet as the one he wanted. "I do like cats" he replied, "it's the mouse who doesn't!".
This year's "Cats Stink" Tee shirts feature patterned letters. Six mice available to choose from,
I'll soon have a link to all six currently available, meanwhile if you'd like to choose I could send you the photos.
BUNNY HOLDING BLUEBIRD MAGNET
A sweet little one-of-kind magnet.
Would be especially cute in a frame in a baby's room.
NEW NAKED MOUSE SERIES MAGNETS
The "Naked Mice" series started out a
as new group of
"naked mice". By the time the set of nine were finished, a few
had taken to wearing vests. (As they aren't wearing pants, they have kept
VALENTINE MOUSE MAGNET from 2004
Sometimes I save a favorite from a group and later decide to part with it. In 2004 there were four naked mice magnets holding fancy valentines. This is the one I had kept for my collection.
WINTER VALENTINE BUNNY MAGNETS
In New England, Valentine's Day arrives in snowy mid-Winter. Wearing their mittens and LLBean boots , with their warm hearts and their knit scarves, these rabbits are ready to join Holiday decorations. They can be hung on a tree, smile from the 'fridge, or stand on a shelf and be enjoyed right through until the winter boots are packed away.
Highly detailed, there are just these three of these special carvings available. I won't be repeating this design.
The heart can be personalized with
name, initials, or date making it a perfect Holiday gift ornament. Display stumps available.

SNOWBALL MOUSE MAGNET
A mouse that is cute with the paper Mache lumpy snow mice, or with a Winter magnet as shown here. He wears a drop seat snowsuit and LLBean boots. Acorn hat is carved, the design on his scarf my favorite of this year.
BLACK CAT WITH SCARF MAGNET
I'm not sure what the caption for this photo should be. It looked to me like the mouse was happily chatting away, however what the cat was thinking during this chat a little less clear.
This Black Cat with Scarf magnet is my largest at 4-1/4". (Also available, a smaller orange cat with scarf magnet and a smaller black cat with scarf as well as custom cat magnets..
$21 Cat with Scarf
TARTAN SCARF MICE MAGNETS
These cheery little Christmas mice wear carved acorn hats and hold stockings ready for personalizing.
Shown, in a moment of Holiday peace and goodwill with Scarf Cat Magnet.
$20 Tartan Scarf Mice Magnets
SO CUTE DANCING IRISH MAGNETS
Another "old favorite". They are way too labor intensive, so I only make them at several years intervals when I've forgotten how long they take. (It's a lot of words to fit on a little shirt!). A little lady bug sits on the shamrock on her head, and she balances on either foot.
Photos shown are of the same
carving, dancing a jig on either foot.
Four available to choose from, photos available for your consideration.
It is the easiest
thing in the world to frame a magnet. Find an empty frame and a
backing that you like.
