Be Thankful! from Irish Corkie Primitives

There is still time to share this appropriate set of blocks for the coming Thanksgiving.

Today I have up for your consideration a Primitive Thanksgiving Be Thankful Wooden Shelf Sign Blocks. Handcrafted from select solid pine. The blocks were painted Tinderbox Brown and Olde Parchement. .

Blocks measures approximately 7" long and 8" high.

After the blocks were dry, they were then sanded carefully and antiqued to give the appearance of that "OLDE WORN" look. A hand rubbed protective sealant was applied for years of protection.

We use authentic Milk Paints on all of our signs, furniture and blocks. If you would prefer the peg rack done in a different color, please see the color choices listed in my store and let me know at the time of purchase. If you do not a see a color listed that you would like, please send me an email and I will work with you to get the perfect color.

The back of the blocks are completely finished and stained.

A great addition to your primitive Fall/Thanksgiving Decor.

Please allow 3-5 days for your piece to completed. Thank you.

Materials Used:
solid pine wood, milk paints, antiquing medium, protective sealant, stain

Harvesting the corn--Candy corn-that is!

Primitive Folk Art Candy Corn Ornies

These ornies are so cute, you could almost eat them! 4 of the five ornies are made from three different fabrics, each different from the others with the last being made entirely from muslin. To this one I added painted prim stitching. All were grunged in a mixture of coffee, vanilla and cinnamon to give then that aged prim look and scent. On the painted ornie I added a rusty bell and a grunged hang tag that says "Olde Thyme Candy Corn," attached with rusty safety pin. These ornies are a perfect addition to any home, as a memento to an old time favorite - candy corn! There are 5 ornies in each set. Each one is different in appearance, and each one grunged with coffee stain and cinnamon. The ornies measure approximately 6 inches tall and 4 inches at their widest point. Perfect for sitting in a bowl on the kitchen table, the mantle or a side table in the living room.
