Also, today marks the start of my retail blowout sale! I am now down to my final days of selling retail, and have placed EVERY item on Final Sale. Take a peek for some really deep discounts! I have only 1 left of many of the items that remain in stock, so if you see something you want, please grab it. Items will not be restocked as they sell out – I am closing out of my imported retail inventory so that I may turn my full focus to my handmade dolls.

Another New Addition to my Primitive Decor

The newest addition to my primitive home decor arrived yesterday all the way from Texas, and I am absolutely in love with it. Would you ever guess that this cabinet is an antique reproduction?

This cabinet is a big 78″ tall, 25″ wide, and 12″ deep. There are four shelves inside which I have used to de-clutter my crafting room. It feels so nice and clean in here now. This room of my house still needs a lot of work, and having this beautiful piece of furniture in it is now an inspiration to get the rest of that work done.

My new cabinet was handmade by Joseph Spinale – he has shops on eBay and Etsy. He uses hand planed pine and square cut nails to create his amazing 18th & 19th century antique reproduction furniture. My husband and I are already planning our next purchase from him.

Primitive Folk Art Sheep Doll

Just added to the Old World Primitives Etsy Shop – a primitive folk art sheep doll.

SOLD, thank you! 

This primitive sheep doll is made of heavily coffee stained muslin. He has a painted black head, vintage cotton batting tail, and antique rusty nails for legs. He wears a poem printed on heavily stained, torn paper that has been attached with two pieces of twine with some sweet annie tucked behind it. This primitive sheep is a Kentucky Primitives design, and measures 8.5″ long by 7.5″ tall.
