Production Line....

Hi Folks!
I am in the throes of work!
...kneep-deep in creating and having a blast!!!
I truly am happiest when my hands are busy,...
{{{below you can see a sneak peek at some of my paper mache ornaments and necklaces}}}

I am playing with paper mache, needle and thread, wool and hook
and punchneedle too...
...my always humming sewing machine has been put to the test and I have fabric scraps
at least an inch deep in my little studio ~
but it's all good,
as I want to be able to offer my friends a variety of my folk art
both on-line and at the show...
...I will have a few harvest wreaths, some unique garlands and of course,
my one-of-a-kind folk art
{... in many mediums!!...}

I've been talking with my sister, Louisea
{who, along with her husband Tom will be vending at the show !! woohoo!}
and they both have been busy crafting & creating...
Tom makes AWESOME wooden benches & carvings from different kinds of beautiful wood
native to CT, and Louisea makes ornaments, dolls and other unique items...
( I can't wait to see everything they have!! )
Robin & I will be taking a day "off" and heading over to Bedford, VA on Thursday,
{shop will be closed here}
where she has a booth in another shop...then we'll do a little antiquing and such.
{I'm looking forward to having a fun-filled day off :) }
I can't believe that it is already September,
but really ~
I'm ready for Fall and everything that comes with it!
and as you can see by this blog,
I love the colors of Autumn and the more whimsical side the Holidays
so I've coined the term "PRIMSICAL" to describe my folk art...
I am a true primitive lover...down to my bones.
I love the vintage graphics of our Victorian past and German antiques,
so I'm trying to combine the two!!!
I hope you'll like what is to come!
well it's time to wash the paper mache and paint from my worktable,
head to the bathtub then settle down with a nice bowl of ice cream...
it's still extremely hot here in VA and the ice cream helps a little!!!
Blessings from the Farm,

What a fevered pace you keep. I'm exhausted from just reading your blog. Isn't funny when you are truly doing something you LOVE all of it just doesn't seem like work. You go girl!


Can't wait to see what magic you have weaved.
