FOLK ART ~ ~ ~

Last week, I ordered these two pieces of folk art from the Primitive Handmade Mercantile site. I've always looked at the offerings but only now was I inspired to order.

The hooked chairpad was hooked by Dorrie of Olde Threads. Her hooking is very neat and her finish is perfect!! Very refined compared to my rustic hooking style!

I want you to see this little punched heart close up! Ronda of Simple Thyme Prims , the stitcher, put it in a tiny vintage heart tin. Lots of work in both ~ my first PHM foray proved to be a happy thing! I love them both!

Lots going on here! We are leaving for Florida Friday ~ woo hoo!! Thank goodness for Tad's sitter, Barb ~ I can leave him and know that he'll be well taken care of and happy. In fact ~ he's almost too happy!!

Gotta pack, finish up office work, do laundry and on and on!!!

What a nice gift to yourself Alice. It must have been hard to resist that chair pad. The heart is beautiful too.
Have a wonderful time in Florida. I wish you warm weather.

Great goodies!
Have a wonderful time in Florida. It sounds like you are leaving just in time. Today felt like March. Oh, spring can't get here too soon! I think all my flowers that are budding are going to be in for a rude awakening :(
Hugs :)
