Folk Art Necklace pendants ~ and a giveaway!!!!!

Good Morning Folks ~
...hoping you all are getting ready to celebrate today!
perhaps you'll have a picnic, go to a parade or just relax ~
whichever you do, have fun and remember our many freedoms here in the USA!!

I wanted to show you my newest project:

Folk Art Necklace pendants


each pendant is handmade by me using a 1 1/4 inch square wooden tile,
a sterling silver bezel for your chain (chain not included),
...and a lasered image of my finished folk art, featuring a
drawing, cross stitch sampler, punch needle project, hooked rug project,
or a favorite antique photo from my personal collection ~


some are for halloween, some are for christmas, all are for everyday!!

I'll be listing them in my etsy shop today and I'm giving one away to a lucky follower who comments here on this post OR becomes a new follower OR posts about them on your blog!


the lucky winner will get their choice of design ~ and I will draw the winner's name


on monday, june 6th in the evening....

good luck everyone!


~AND~
please remember to visit
www.EarlyWorkMercantile.com
tomorrow for the 1st of the month update ~
I'll be offering a miniature sampler in a wonderful early frame!


Blessings from the Farm...
