I am a primitive lover at heart. So, when I came across the Polka Dot Pig on facebook, I was HOOKED!
The picture above and below, were listed on facebook, and I had to investigate further! The workmanship of these hand painted goodies is amazing!
Julie Miller, owner of Polka Dot Pig loves to go to flea markets and garage sales to find some of my favorite things... things that are covered in rust n' dust! She brings them home and gives them a new life with a little paint and a lot of love.
Not only does Julie paint, but she also sews! You can find so many wonderful hand crafted dolls, ornies and seasonal items on her website
This is one of my favorite dolls she does! The queen of junk! A fabulous doll, but also a few little extras added on for the extra touch! These dolls and so many other are available on the website, and are also offered as pattern~ but please make sure to mention Polka Dot Pig as the designer.
For the past few months, since finding the Polka Dot Pig, Julie and and her daughter Brittini have been doing show after show! Would you not just RUN to a booth that looks like this???
In her spare time(lol) Julie also has a couple booths at local shoppes. Looks like you can find a little bit of everything a prim girl needs all in one shop!
or on facebook under Polka Dot Pig Primitives
She is also featured in the latest issue of Create n Decorate! Pick up a copy and learn all about the hard working Julie Miller and her family, of hubby, kids, dogs, and dollies!
