Birthday Greetings

In honor of her birthday, I'm re-posting Karin's article here.  Join me in wishing her a Happy Birthday!

I knew I could count on my friend Karin. In addition to being a great gal and one of my first blogger friends, she has a fantastic blog called Countryfolk Keepsakes.  Karin makes primitive art that is extremely cool.  She is also a collector of Americana. She is a true patriot and loves her country.  So with that little bit of background in place, here are a couple shots of where Karin creates...

Being a seamstress myself, I know for a fact that her studio won't stay this clean for long, but we'll cut her a break.

 Not only does she create beautiful art dolls and fabric sculptures, she is quite a do it yourself kind of gal. When you have the time, browse through some of her older posts to see what she has created, and you just might pick up on her love of nature and animals.  Her nickname is Peanut (though I'm not sure why) and she gets a kick out of my nickname of Peachy (my last name is Keene) and she has been known to tell a joke or two.  In other words, she is a hoot.

So once again, I want to thank Peanut for showing us her studio. Love you bunches, gal.

Happy Birthday, Karin!
