PAFA Etsy Team Simon Says Challenge

Hi everyone,
Miss Brenda Griffiths of The Rusty Thimble and one of the leaders of our Primitive and Folk Artists Etsy team has issued a challenge to the members of PAFA, a 'Simon Says' challenge!  What's it all about?  Well, when Brenda says 'Simon Says' we are to hurry on over to Etsy and pick three items created by our talented PAFA team members that we love.

So without further ado, here are three of my favourites.  It was a VERY hard choice and believe me these three are just the tip of the iceberg so after taking a peek at these beauties, click here to see everything that PAFA has to offer!

First, here is an adorable chicken doll by the very talented Joan Minervini of Vintage Keepsake Trunk.
Isn't that too cute?  Love it Joan!

Next, here's an epattern by Julie of Oakleaf Hollow.  I LOVE Julie's paintings.  And to make this even better (if that is even possible!) the original design is by the very talented Terrye French and then painted by Julie, a joint venture that they call Painting With Friends.
A perfect pattern for the coming season, don't you think?

And last but certainly not least, here's an amazing Medusa doll by Rabbit Hollow Prims, Susan is so talented!
This doll is quite incredible, I love her!

So there you go, three of my favourites from the PAFA Etsy team.  If you'd like to see more offerings from this talented group, click here or search PAFA team at Etsy and enjoy!  Stay tuned for more 'Simon Says' challenges, I'm sure Brenda will be starting a new game soon!
