Happy Labor Day Friends! I hope this finds you enjoying the peace and freedom of a day off from your labors. While today should be a day of rest for you – I do believe that certain labors can be freeing. Folk Art is one.
Imagine hand stitching a quilt. Imagine hand stitching a quilt without being told how to do it. Imagine hand stitching a quilt without being told how to do it and trying to use only the materials that surround you. This is labor. A labor of love? Yes. A labor nonetheless.
Today I am taking a moment to celebrate Folk Art. It represents the perfect union of freedom and labor. As I wrote here, “A passion for Folk Art runs through my veins.”
I found these beautiful examples of Folk Art on Etsy. What would you add? I set up a pin board called Folk Art Gift Guide. I would love to add your finds. Please let me know what they are in the comments here.
