Northfield Primitives

I found Northfield Primitives through Selvedge Magazine. Isn't this little terrior swell?

And this elephant is awfully sweet!

Here is a Cocker Spaniel . They are made in Great Britain...I don't know if they ship to the U.S. I'd love to have one though! I found them on this site.
I wonder if there is anything like that just for U.S. folk artists....anyone know? :)

Hand Painted Vintage Jewelry Chest

I found this and thought it would look fabulous painted  with pretty flowers.The mirror is mottled, and gives it that vintage appeal. It  would be easy to replace with a new one as well.

Four little drawers to stash treasures.

A close up of hydrangeas and roses.

The sides were painted in an old design I used way back when....ribbons and flowers.

Have a happy cyber Monday! I'll put this in the etsy shop to celebrate the day! Thanks for looking....:)
