Let Me Introduce You To....

...the Witchy Sisters! When I was figuring out what to get my Dad for his Birthday on Sunday, I came across a new post on one of my new favorite blogs, Sassafrass Hill Primitives. The sweet lady that writes it is named Denise and she is an AMAZING craftswoman of the coolest folk art. I was so excited when I first discovered her! Then came her Halloween crafts and after she posted some photos I was hooked! I decided on the Witchy Sisters and after a quick phone call across the country she saved them from her latest show and packed them away for me. Last week they showed up in their box on my step. I was so excited! Inside the box I found the neatly bound Witches (in brown paper and gingham ribbon) and a hanging ornament made from an old Winter print and pieces of pinecone. (Yay for surprise extras! Thanks!)

After delicately unwrapping my purchase, I enjoyed looking at all the wonderful details! The tight, brunette curls. The big, bright eyes and long, thin noses.

So much care had been taken with making this eclectic pair! Right down to their little name tag!

What a perfectly strange gift for my Dad! He was gonna love 'em!

My mother loves these ladies too! (Which is important because she's in charge of the decor at their house!) I wrapped them back up all cozy in their paper, wrapped their box in striped paper and ribbons and presented it proudly to my Dad. He received it with grins and happy laughs. Perfect!

Please head over to Denise's blog (or website) and check out her amazing art. She is an absolute pleasure to do business with and her work is beautiful! :D Thanks again Denise!!!
