Early Style Wall Boxes and Shelves

Today I have four primitive, rustic wall boxes and shelves to share with you. All are handmade by me and are inspired by early wooden smalls. I did not have patterns, I just sketched a design I liked on paper, transferred to the wood and cut out... sometimes adjusting until I got the shape I liked. If you'd like to read more about the process, visit my blog.

Everything is made of pine, hand hammered (no nail gun), hand sanded (other than a small amount of power sanding in the curves), painted with chalk paint, distressed and stained (lightly), and then hand rubbed with my own beeswax paste concoction.

These are one of a kind pieces... I can make something similar, but not cookie cutter identical.
Time is limited right now, so I can only take a small amount of orders after these sell.
After all... we are expecting our first grand-baby in less than 2 weeks! :)

USPS Priority Mail shipping will be according to your zip.
If you are outside the U.S., please email me for a shipping quote.

I accept credit cards (paid through PayPal invoice sent by me) and checks.

Have fun shopping! :)

A Folk Art Christmas at Honeysuckle Lane


I have a few items to offer this weekend just in time for your holiday decorating! :)
All of these items are made from laundered, recycled wool (a vintage army blanket, skirts, jackets, sweaters, etc.). Everything has been completely stitched by hand.

Please email me to ask questions or to purchase. I'll send a PayPal invoice when you are ready.

1. Penny Rug Wall Pocket
SOLD ~ thank you! 



The pocket is made from an old army blanket. It has been hand-stitched by me. I have cut and hand-stitched various wool pennies to the blanket using over-dyed Valdani cotton threads. The pocket measures about 9 1/2" tall x 7" wide and the wire hanger adds another 6"-8".

$75 plus shipping
SOLD, Thank you!

2. Penny Rug Pillow
SOLD ~ thank you! 
 




 


This pillow measures about 13 1/2" x 7" from seam to seam. It has been completely hand-stitched. I have filled it with all wool scraps, so it has the feel and look of an old-fashioned pillow and has a good weight to it. After sewing it up, I cut a slit in the back, stuffed it, and then very neatly whip-stitched the opening closed.

$100 plus shipping
SOLD, Thank you!

3. Penny Rug Ornaments
SOLD ~ thank you! 
 



These pennies will be perfect for your tree... wire, feather, or evergreen! Most are 1 1/2" but a few are 2". You will get varying colors in your order but they are all made from the same wool as the pillow and wall pocket.

40 penny rug ornaments for $75
SOLD ~ thank you!

1769 Whale Pin Keep





1769 Whale Pin Keep
The blue-gray whale is made from recycled, felted wool and is blanket-stitched on a reproduction dotted paisley cotton fabric... which sort of looks like little whales! The year 1769 has been hand-embroidered with DMC cotton floss. The pin keep is completely hand-stitched, filled with wool scraps from my previous projects, and has a hand-written label stitched on the back. It measures about 5" x 7-1/2". The old felt-covered pins are NOT included.

If you'd like to add this pin keep to your folk art collection,
it's yours for $35 (plus shipping).
Email me to purchase.
