A Winner and Uncle Sam!!



CONGRATULATIONS TO GRETCHEN !!!
 
 
She won the Patriotic Birdhouse in my Giveaway!
 
 
And guess what the name of her blog is??
 
Bird Nest Cottage!!
 
How appropriate.  Gretchen, send me you address and I'll get the birdhouse in the mail ASAP so you can enjoy it for the 4th of July.
 
Wanted to share this cute, prim Uncle Sam with you today.
 
 
I don't do an awful lot of prim items, but saw this at An Affair of the Heart craft show a couple of years ago and fell in love with him.  Isn't it cute the way she used the vintage silverware for his arms and legs?  Also, the brim of his hat is a wooden twig. 
 
This was made by Julie Miller, Folk Artist and the name of her business is Polka Dot Pig Primitives.
 
 
Enjoy and again congratulations to Gretchen!
 
Till next time, Judy
