A message from Carolyn....

Dear Fans,
as promised, here's what I've received from Carolyn about her latest handpainted cupboard:

Claudia: Dear Carolyn, congratulations! Another wonderful creation that will be loved and loved by many stitchers!
Carolyn: Your remarks about my folk art are always so kind and lovely! Thank you!

Claudia: Can you tell us when the cupboards will be available?
Carolyn: We have been working hard on trying to get these little cupboards built and painted, and hopefully many will go out to shops before the end of September, so you may get yours a bit sooner!!!

Claudia: Your cupboards are gorgeous... so unique!
Carolyn: I am happy that you like them. I am always worried that what I design will not be received and that maybe beople won't care for it... and then I get a lovely message from you saying that you do like it and I am happy! We do try always to make something a little different.

Claudia: ... and this time your set has something primitive, very stylish, following the primitive trend that is so popular between stitchers this year... What inspired you?
Carolyn: The set is for Halloween but really can be kept out all year, I think. The cupboard is meant to have a bit of primitive look. I love going to cemeteries seeing old tombstones, especially with angels on them. That is what I tried to pattern this little cupboard after. Then I choose a pumpkin color to go with the Halloween season.

Claudia: Thanks so much, Carolyn, for your kind answers!
Carolyn: Best regards to you and thank you for your email, my friend!

And we are all ready to display our cupboards all year long, right??? :D


First Colony Tombstone Cupboard updates

Dear Fans,
directly from Carolyn's presentation letter to shops, here a lovely description and better pictures of the cupboard (just click to enlarge...):

Have you seen the wonderful thread board hanging on the lid?? And the lovely inscription on the outside? The two white thread winders are so inusual and so primitive... Carolyn told me about a tie between this cupboard and the wonderful Angel Worke Box... she was right! They will look great together!!!
Remember that scissors are NOT included! They are the wonderful Primitive Little Gems made by Kelmscott Designs: Paula, your Gems look GREAT with the cupboard!! :D
And... Today I had a wonderful message from Carolyn: I will post it tomorrow! :D Be patient... :D


First Colony Tombstone Cupboard: ready for a new release?

Dear Liberty Hill Fans,
Carolyn will be ready soon with something new, totally different from anything she painted before. Now on preorder on Silver Needle (see on the left for the link...), there is her newest release that will be ready on late September.
Here' pictures of this new beauty:

It's a pure delight!!! As Silver Needle's describes, it's a miniature cupboard with a tombstone angel painted on its outside lid, in black color over pumpkin tones, that guards a list of what "lies" inside the cupboard itself...
Opening the door, every stitcher will find wonderful sewing smalls ready to give more accent to every work in progress, stored on a small shelf:
a thread board, an envelope with needles, 2 thread winders and a lovely fob. All handpainted!!! Price: $64.00.
But you have to be quick.... Carolyn will release only 300 of this little wonders!

Well... I will try to interview Carolyn about it... just stay tuned if you want to know more about some behind the scene details!!
