I am soooo happy to be able to share with you what I consider to be the MOTHER LOAD of primitive treasures.
Now...most artists,. artisans, crafters, or home improvers, myself included are just out of control and addicted to our favorite periodicals, or otherwize known as "magazines"
A couple of my "have to haves" or "hunt down, & were not going home until I get one in my hands" (husband in tow) are "Create & Decorate" Mary Englebriets "Home Companion" & of course "Country Sampler" When the "Country Marketplace" went out of business a couple of years ago...I was in mourning for months. BUT PRIMITIVE LOVERS....for those who have never heard of "MERCANTILE GATHERING MAGAZINE" allow me to turn you on.
This magazine promises to delight you with primitive stories, Prim shoppes in and out of your area, patterns, primitive homes, page after page of eye candy...I will not be responsible for any drooling that may occur. It makes available an amazing oppertunity to advertize your own business, meet other primitive artists, and perhaps network and expand your own passions.
Mercantile Gathering Magazine has patterns and inspires countless womenfolk like myself to want to attempt new projects or tweak your own passions, such as Rug Hooking, Needle punching, Doll making, stitching, quilting, sewing, painting, applique, decorating ideas for shoppes, homes, and gardens, doll sculpting, sign making.....lions and tigers and bears ohh my!!!!!!
Please treat yourself and go to my dear friend Twigs' website which will afford you all the info needed to purchase just one issue or a subscription. You can email Miss Fay who is the "go to girl" and very creative publisher who wears many hats to keep this baby going. I promise... you wont be disappointed.
Also while you are at "Primitive Blessings byTwigs n Sprigs" website, treat yourself to her stories, beautiful pictures of her shoppe, home, recipies, offers, web designs, patterns, stationary AND amazing primitive rubber stamps....(I know I have some) and links... just tell her Scaredy Kat sent ya! ENJOY!!!!!!
