Tramp Art, like quilting, relies on using salvaged materials to create textures and patterns then piecing them together to make beautiful yet utilitarian
objects. While relatively unknown, Tramp Art was a wide-spread form of Folk Art that flourished in America between the 1870's – 1940's.

Spring is here...the snow is melting...the early morning sun is shining through the kitchen window...

and I am sipping my coffee and having some fresh fruit
for breakfast as I hear the snoring of my 
husband and our dog coming from the bedroom...LOL


I am working on several new pieces. 
Printing out my patterns, tracing shapes onto wood
and then cutting everything out by hand.

My work table is covered but soon some exciting
new pieces will emerge!

I am also making a few of my Ravens and have designed
 a new Raven. Also working on a couple of German
Automobiles and a large and small Tall Clock. There will be
some wonderful new Heart-In-Hand pieces and even
a couple of full-size game tables using antique table bases will use a Country Sheraton table base with 
original black paint and the other is a simple Hepplewhite
tappered-leg base in the original apple green paint.


Since I had shared the work in progress photos
with you I thought you might like to see the finished 
Moravian Star and Maggie pieces...


and finally, for those of you who celebrate this holiday
I wish you a very Happy Easter!
Here is the card I designed for my husband
hope it puts a smile on your face...
