Celebrating after the shoot with Martha's fave- a Cosmo.

A number of years ago I was given a gift called “Martha Goose”; a ceramic momma goose and baby goose that came equipped with 15 different outfits. Now, I am not someone who decorates my house with a country theme, but these geese were just too darn cute to pass up.

The concept of “lawn geese” started in the Midwest about 30 years ago and in areas with warmer weather, the geese reside on your front porch. Owners are encouraged to change the geese outfits as seasons, holidays or moods change. One modern “geese outfit” website describes them as Barbie Dolls for adults.

Since I live on the East Coast, I placed Momma and Baby right inside my front door, to greet visitors as they entered. Each month I’ve changed their outfits to match the season or holiday. My original gift came with matching outfits for the two geese with winter, spring, summer and fall themes plus distinct outfits for Christmas, Thanksgiving, July 4th, and Easter.

I’ve discovered a number of websites that sell expansive lines of lawn geese clothing including lines by occupation (ex. realtor, policeman or chef goose) and sports interests (ex. golfer or hiker goose.) You can also request custom made outfits.

I recently did a fashion shoot with my geese that I’d like to share. These include some of the cute original outfits and a few additions.

Do you want your own lawn goose?

If you want buy your own lawn goose, you have a choice of ceramic, concrete or plastic materials that come in a number of sizes. Lawn Goose Designs offers painted and unpainted geese in 25” and 9” models, plus hundreds of lawn goose outfits. Link to their website here.

The Stuffed Goose offers a variety of goose outfits and patterns you can buy to make your own. Goose Duds specializes in season specific goose clothing. At Dress My Goose, you can buy winter and spring coats to protect your geese from the cold and rainy weather. www.dressmygoose.com

The Gingham Goose, making “haute couture for the discriminating goose” is having a going out of business sale on their website. I guess lawn geese are just not into high fashion. www.theginghamgoose.com

      Does anyone know where I can get a Martha Goose? I broke my 10-year-old Martha last week. My kids are really sad. I can't find Martha and Bertie for sale anywhere.

      My daughter gave me a set of these geese. I just love them and I very faithfully changed their clothes, every month. Well, the baby has been missing for a few months, now. I asked the neighborhood children, if they have seen it. No luck! I can't imagine someone stealing the baby and not taking the mama. Do you know where I can buy another baby?

      If not, where can I buy a set?

      Thank you.
