Hopping down Honeysuckle Lane...

Update: Thank you! All Rabbits and Bird in Hand pieces were gone by March 30th!
I will be making more the first full week of April.
I have been making rabbits and birds this week. I have a few listed on the Whimsies page of my website, and hope to get a few more made next week.

A Quilt for Dolly

I sold some of these a few years ago and while prowling through boxes in my basement, I happened upon more squares from the same antique quilt and thought I'd make a few more.
These are all hand sewn, from the original piecing and quilting to the recent binding that I made and stitched. They are only $15 each and are the sweetest little things for a doll, or you could even use them as a cupboard coverlet (hang over an open door or drape over a shelf), or place on a table for a little prim mat.
Pop on over to my website to see what's left ~ some have already sold.
A larger quilt, about 19 1/2" square, is listed on ebay. The auction will end Sunday night.
You may see it here.

Poppets, Portraits, & Playthings of the Past has been updated...

...sort of... I am still working on a sheep ~ see the PPPP blog to read about him.
Suzanne painted a wonderful portrait of a little girl holding a bunny and she also painted a silhouette of a little boy and a sheep.

I made a rabbit as a companion to the portrait and will have a hand sculpted sheep finished and ready tomorrow afternoon to go along with the silhouette.

You are welcome to come by for a visit:

Poppets, Portraits, and Playthings of the Past

I planned on mentioning this a few days ago and completely forgot!
My friend, BJ, is having an online yard sale. She always has neat decor items and supplies.
Be sure to go see what's left...

Happenings at Honeysuckle Lane

I apologize for not checking in and posting since mid-February. There's been a lot happening here at Honeysuckle Lane, though it's not been the sort of happenings I'd prefer. We've had several family illnesses, and sadly, two family deaths (a grandpa and an aunt), and things are still a bit out of sorts.
I'm trying to get back on track, but creativity just isn't flowing the way it used to, and so, meager will be the offerings this month. I would like to let you know what is going on when and where, in case I don't post again till April. I do hope to be back next month refreshed and renewed along with Spring.
I have listed a few odds and ends that need a home, cordings for pillows, craft magazines, an antique French fashion print, shabby glass lamps, and even a few handmade items discounted this month. Just click on the Junk Sale below to visit the sale page:

The 15th of the month will be a good time to shop for springtime folk art.
Be sure to visit the next 3 shops at that time for plenty of handmade items.
Click on the following banners to be taken to my page at those online markets, then click the Artist link at the bottom of that page to see the full list of artists.

Suzanne (Pear Tree Primitives / Painter of the Past) and I will have new portraits and playthings of the past on March 20th. You are invited to come by for a visit to see what's new. You may visit by clicking on the photo:

And last, but not least, The Eclectic Artisans will be having their 1st webshow of 2009 on April 4th. Our artists are busy working and creating one of a kind pieces of folk art just for this show. Click the banner below to view our homepage. Individual artist page links will be available opening day.

That's it for now...
Unless something of great interest occurs, I'll see you in April...
Take Care & God Bless,
