My website is growing so quickly!  A lot of the items that I ordered in January at AmericasMart Atlanta have arrived and are up for sale now.  As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I now have licensed pieces by Folk Artists Nicol Sayre, Sharon Andrews and Heather Myers. These are perfect for Spring and Easter, and are currently 15% off my already low prices by using the code  BUNNY during check out. I will soon be adding a couple of Patriotic designs and, eventually, designs for Halloween.  And don’t forget about Elaine Roesle and her Snow Children and St Nicholas. She’s a wonderful artist and person-  and only lives about 10 minutes away from me!

 

The jewelry section has exploded!  In addition to the new designs by Art by Amy, my collect of John Wind Maximal Art has doubled and also includes designs in silverHe has a new Country Living collection as well.  There are currently 3 designs from that line available in my store and a few more that can be pre-ordered.  I can’t wait to get the rest of the pieces in stock, they are really awesome! Also new this year is jewelry from Debbee Thibault.  She has been creating wonderful Folk Art since 1985, and I am lucky to be able to offer some of her jewelry. There will soon be some special pieces added, so keep watching for them.

 

Another unique line is Lola Rae by Michele Muska.  Michele uses ribbon and cloth to create pincushion jewelry.  You will find necklaces, bracelets and brooches that are sure to get you noticed.  Still on order from the show in Atlanta is a new line from K&K.  I will post a few photo to their page in the store so you can get a feel for what will be offered.  A couple of the items will be perfect for Halloween.

The Easter Feather Tree that I was sharing with you is now complete and on it’s way to Utah.  You can see a picture of it on the front page of my store.  After getting the rest of the items added, and getting some work done in the yard, I will be starting on an order for a fall-colored Feather Tree.  Also, I am planning to have a booth at the Farmers Market in Piqua starting at the end of May.   I think I’d better get working on some things for that too.   I hope everyone is having a wonderful Spring.  Thanks for stopping by!

It’s almost done!

Hello, I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  It’s raining again here but, April Showers bring May Flowers!

As promised, I have more photos of  the Feather Tree that I am working on.  I almost have all of the upper branches done, and am ready to attach the little off-shoots to the lower branches.

It’s definitely looking “Easter-y”!

Work in Progress

Hello, I hope everyone is having a good Spring so far.  We warmed up for awhile, then it turned cold again and even snowed.  We have so much work to do here, both inside and out.  I am always getting antsy about this time wanting to get my gardens ready and to start planting.  Even though I can’t get started on that yet, I still have plenty to keep me busy.  My current project is a 36 inch Feather Tree in Easter colors.  It is a special order for one of my Folk Artist buddies.  Since I have been terrible lately about posting, I decided that I would share my project with you as it develops.  These first pictures show the tree branches extremely bare, only the purple tip and first row of feathers.

There are a lot more branches than this, but you get the idea.  Watch as I add more colors to these and they begin their transformation into a tree.  How about making this in to a game and see who can guess what color will be next?  Hmmmm what could it be?!
