Monday Morning Merchant

I don't know what happened to last week but somehow I got nothing done.LOL So today I am featuring two PAFA artists for my Monday Morning Merchants.
The first is Carol from Firecracker Kid. Carol named her shop Firecracker Kid Primitives because she was born on the 4th of July! She and her husband, Tim, have been making unique woodcrafts for over 25 yrs and have been selling on Etsy since 2008,
I was lucky enough to win one of Carol's Chicken Nexting boxes so I can tell you first hand that Carol and Tim make top quality products. Tim designs all of his woodworks with no pattern so they are all basically one of a kinds.
Here is one of Carol's Rolling Pin Dough Bowl slelves and I love this style!

And I love this Wood Herb Rack

Here are the links to view all of Carol and Tim's woodworks. So head over and check out all of her awesome woodcrafts and know that not only are you getting top quality woodworks but you are buying U.S.A products!
My second Monday Morning Merchant is Brenda from The Rusty Thimble. Brenda has been in business for over 30 years but has only used The Rusty Thimble as her business name for 3 years. Brenda gets her inspiration from all sorts of places and has just started Pinterest.
Her style is prim, country and folkart and she makes all her crafts from fabric but uses vintage itmes such as buttons, lace, etc. to give her creations a personal touch.
Here are a couple of my favorite items in her Etsy shop.

Brenda is also the team captain of PAFA and is always eager to help anyone. She has helped me with Facebook, picutres and so much more. I don't know where she gets her energy but I wish I could find some.LOL
Here are the links where you can find Brenda's adorable creations so head over and check out all her items. And remember when you purchase items from Brenda, you are supporing made in the U,S.A!
Here's a reminder that PAFA is having our Spring Celebration Giveaway so be sure and head over to the PAFA blog and enter to win one of 33 adorable giveaway items donated by members of the PAFA Team. The giveaway ends Feb. 29 so hurry oveer and enter. I donated this duck stitchery.
