"It is a token of health and gentle characteristics when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied." ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

New Items on Third Friday...Primitive Handmades Mercantile

I hope this finds you enjoying a wonderful Summer evening! We had a lovely day today, the clouds parted, sun was shining and the temp was just perfect!! We truly enjoy our blue sky here in the Pacific Northwest, they have been far and few between, but when they do make an appearance, well...we get just giddy around here!!
Please stop by our Third Friday at Primitive Handmades Mercantile, we have been very busy creating!! For my post, I have made two fabric covered boxes with a pincushion topper. They come with a pair of reproduction scissors. I have added rusty pins, mop buttons and pins. Perfect size to store all your sewing needs. I have made three primitive angels, each with burlap skirts and wings, I have added vintage coverlet pieces to accent, vintage clothespins and spun flax for their hair. They are securely attached to vintage wooden spindles that I purchased while antiquing with my sis in Minnesota. Once again, I hope you are enjoying a lovely Summer, stop by the Mercantile and see what our ladies have been up to!
Primitive Blessings,
Mona
