Handpainted Americana Flag Soap

This is one talented lady that paints this soap! I love her work and when I had my shop I bought so much of it and I couldn't keep it in stock! Wait until you see her Santa at Christmas!

Another good Quote

Do just once what others say you can't do, and you will never pay attention to their limitations again.

Pouncer and Cornelius

Pouncer is typical of a cat don't you think? I made him from one of my patterns. If you like Cornelius, his prey, you can pick up the free downloadable pattern for him on my mini site on A Time for Primitives.

A quote for us all

The Lion and The Lamb Studio

Leann Banta was recently selected to be on the
2008 Early American Life Magazine's Directory. This fraktur (under glass) is a one of a kind original drawn by her, on watercolor paper of Laedy Waschington. That is how you would of spelled it back in those days. It is a real honor to have someone like Leann in the same magazine as I am.

Cat Chimes

Knowing how much I love cats can you believe I had to buy these for my yard? Look at the darling chimes and silverware hanging off of them. Just too cute and I cant wait to get them. I love chimes and we have so much wind here that they really sound wonderful. I have bought from Vickie before and she does a wonderful job of everything she makes.

I think David and his sense of humor is a fantastic artist. Check out my blog often for more of his Chicken Lips! You can find more like Agnes on A Time for Primitives website or Chicken Lips.biz
