CARDS

~The Cherished Items~ Card Set No.1

This is the newest line of greeting cards. A set of 5 blank cards, on quality white paper stock, 5x6.5", with envelop. Crisp quality photographs of things from the farmhouse; the wool sheep pull toy with an old lantern, a wood dough bowl full of my old heart tins, a very old large graniteware coffee pot, a cloth bird & its shadow on the weathered chicken coop doors, and the old enamelware plates in sunlight on my olde wood table on the summer porch.  Colors are in muted hues of greys & blues. Some of my best work! Set of 5 cards/ $12 includes shipping.

 

Ansella

From the very moment I first saw the angel dolls with wooden architectural 'wings', dressed in vintage christening gowns in the Seasons at Seven Gates Farm book many years ago, I was intrigued by these dolls.  In great demand, theirs were difficult if not impossible to buy and had large price tags. Several years ago, I made them for the shop.  Always using old clothes and old architectural wood pieces for wings, Ansella, this angel doll is 28" tall with the rusted wire and star, she herself is 23" tall, the wing span is 13".

Ansella wears 2 old (color tone from age) ornate pillow cases, with lace trims for her skirts, covered by a very old yellowed from age infant sweater, all original. The doll herself is aged stiffened muslin, with old mother of pearl button eyes, stitched nose and sparse string hair. The wings are an old wood trim piece with original white paint still visible. She hangs with a wire hanger. $115 + $8.50 shipping. ONLY 1. 

   

Cast Iron Tree Stand

A most unusual tree stand, heavy cast iron, in old finish showing its age, it sits on 3 legs 14" long, and is 10" high. The round base holds the tree when the legs are down. They fold to make it more compact. Grippers on the top of the leg hold the tree. $59+SH

 ~~ natural linen flax~~

  with it's many uses to come to mind,  the one I prefer is simply filling a big old wooden dough bowl!  It looks equally primitive and country filling an old basket.  This  early bowl (measures 15" across and 4" deep NOT FOR SALE), is filled right up to overflowing!  Flax as shown $15.00 + SH.  Colors range in light to dark taupe, with blondes and greys mixed here and there.
