My Treasures ~

Just wanted to let everyone know that this wonderful booth belonged to Kathy Bonnes.  Thank you, Lori Ann, for letting me know.

This well loved bear has a new home with me.  I just couldn't resist his charm. 

His arm has been crudely sewn . . .

He's got a hole in his belly . . .

And did I mention he's blind?

When DSO saw him, his comment was, "I hope you didn't pay much for him!".  Typical guy reaction :)

The bear, along with these coverlet pieces and 19th century homespun, came from the booth of Jackie Cessna.

This carved lemon was done by Ginny Henson.  She had a trencher full.  They really did smell heavenly.  Ginny also had THE MOST WONDERFUL stuffed animal creations that looked old, old, old.  Had I not bought the bear, one of them would have come with me, too.

From the booth of Lisa Evans, Folk Art for All Seasons, is this sweet little box that will hold my hooks and scissors.  The neat thing about this box is that the bottom is in the middle of the box, so it can be used  up . . .

. . . or down. 

Last but not least, two patterns and a piece of velveteen from Blackberry Primitives.  They also had beautiful wool.  It's the wool that Maggie Bonanomi uses for all her creations. 

If you ever get the opportunity to head to Peninsula, Ohio, and attend From Our Hands, you will not be disappointed.  There is so much more I would have loved to bring home with me . . . sigh.

Two more things to share from the show in my next post.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
