Last Valentine Piece

I have some great buyers and collectors, and one of them asked me to consider doing a Pumpkin boy piece for Valentine's Day. Well, here he is, "Valentino Lumina". Valentino is the most dashing of the Lumina family brothers, having a full set of teeth courtesy of a great dental program.

He has lovely green eyes, a great smile and he holds his heart to give to his beloved...hmmmm, who will that be?

He wears a fashionable little vest, white shirt and tie and carries an additional heart pendant over his arm. He even has tiny little hearts in the black border on his base.

Hope you like him!
Have a great day and happy creating!
Laurie

Oh goodness, excuse me for being tardy in responding!!

Thank you Dani, he has a good dental program.

Nat, I'm glad these smiling boys put a grin on your face.

Skelly Addict, he is one of my favorite Pumpkin Boy faces I have done to date.

Robin, hello pretty lady...but your little lady bugs and spring dollies are so lovely. I love them.

Hi Ginny...you are too funny!

Thank you Carolee...glad you stopped by!

Marie, you are too kind!!

Lance, I'm trying to do crossover pieces that the collector can leave out for more than one holiday. More bang for the buck!

Rima, ah girl, you stopped by all the way from England. If the rest of you have not been to her Hermitage blog site yet go give her a look (she is under my daily feeding list I'm working on)...awesome and inspiring!

Karin, I am thrilled you stopped over...I so loved finding you this week! I love your work!

Nana Lori, you know those artistic personalities...I think he is tempting Luminista with that heart he is holding. He is such a womanizer!!

Thank you all for stopping by. Hope you are having a great weekend!

Cracks me up! Kinda reminds me of Dh with skinny legs and pot belly. LOL terrible to say but true. A real heart breaker. The kind momma warned us about! LOL I am sure he has found a happy home. Love your humor girl and I hope it continues.
