Rx Color: Scandinavian Style
Big stuff happening today. It's raining. No, no, no........that's not it. Big stuff around here, equals sweet little Mercantile Muse giveaway, but more on that in a moment...or scroll down, almost to bottom of post, for giveaway!
First some color treatment, for the gray day that is.
I know, I know. You thought they were tiles. Not that I like pointing this out or anything, but you can be so wrong.
Get a glass of milk, because they're cookies!
GORgeous. Admit it, you thought they were tiles at first, didn't you?
No fooling this time, these really are tiles.
Hand painted, at that.
Not quite tulip time, but here's something to hold you over.
Got a little girl? She'd be head over clogs in this number.
Oh, to be 6 again.
Need someplace to lay your weary head? What? You can't fall asleep?
The lavender and hops in this pillow are sure to take care of that.
I admit, I've got the Scandinavian bug. Mix that with a some Pennsylvania Dutch and you've got my latest illustration 'Dutch Treat". Pennsylvania Dutch/German Fraktur and Scandinavian Folk Art meets Pop Art.
Bigger and Better Things, Well......Better Anyway
In honor of today's theme, Bates Mercantile Co. is giving away the sweetest little blue and white, antique delft bowl. Tulip Time china by Johnson Brothers, made in England!
Very pretty depiction of a Dutch town, a windmill and girls collecting tulips.
I told you it was sweet. Now, it is an antique, and there is some crazing that you can see in these pictures, but I think it adds to its character.
