Be Still, My Heart


Some folks think you can have too much of a Good Thing ...
personally I do NOT!

I absolutely adore my friend's work ...Carol Roll of Nostalgic Folk Art, (endearingly known as Jinxie by many of her close friends) has a way of creating the most precious pieces of art from a pile of paper mache! Whether a sweet little imp is licking a lollipop, or carrying a handful of balloons, or precariously poised, one footed on a building block, Carol's faces will tug at your heart and have you ooohing and aaaahing outloud.

My hubs has heard these very sounds coming from my mouth many times as I open my newest treasure from her. I wish I could buy it all - but I can't ...
and that is GREAT NEWS for you!

Carol is having a massive sale going on right now - with eye popping prices. She is getting ready to strike off in a new direction and wants to make some room in her studio for a massive show she will be attending in a few months... So get your tush over to her website and click the "Super Duper Sale Items" category on the left. If you are like me, you might just find yourself having to make some hard decisions!

PS: forgive my photo ... I know it does no justice to her work, but it's dark and rainy here today and my camera does not want to cooperate!

You are such an enabler :)
How will I ever decide which one to buy? I guess the answer probably isn't one - as I see that is your answer too!
Thanks so much for sharing!
Blessings, Patti
