Good morning my friends. Another snowy day in Michigan! I have the day "off" from the shop today, but I have SOOOO many things I want to get done. We took a great old beadboard cupboard to the shop yesterday and I want to get down there to paint it. I want to get sewing on more bunnies - I sold five on Saturday. AND I have to take Mom to the doctor at noon - her back is out AGAIN!
But in the meantime, I thought it might be fun to share part of my pinkeep collection with you. It's probably one of my favorite collections and they are so much fun to look for - but only the really prim ones! Above is a really prim sunflower done on an old tin "cup".
I love this strawberry. The material is really textured and it must be rag stuffed.
I found these two old girls down by the Indiana border of Michigan. Aren't they a hoot?
Love this old woman on a spool.
This old pear is also very weighty.
This one is done on top of a rusty old tin can.
Another primitive pear.
More strawberries, one out of ticking and one out of old velvet.
This is a favorite too. Very heavy with rips and patches.
This one is mounted on an old insulator.
What would a collection be without an old shoe?
And this little chick also had to get in on the action.
I have more, but I'll wait until another day to share those - they are lots bigger.
Sure do wish I could just snuggle in today and not have to go outside! They snow is coming like crazy. Oh well. I know a lot of you are counting the days until spring - count me in! I can't hardly wait to transplant flowers, start some gardens and enjoy the outdoors. But for now, I'm thankful to have a cozy nest, a warm woodstove and a place to get creative.
Hope you all have a snuggly day.
Until next time...
