Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Michigan Mondays

Grab something to drink and come with me to  visit two wonderful shops here in Michigan.  The first shop is Hip To Piece Square.  Share the shop owner calls her sewing machine her best friend.  Once you step into her on line shop you will see why.  It is filled with beautiful Kimono House shoes, pouches for art and sewing supplies.  Plus mini quilts and journals for quilting.

The next shop is BarbaraPortraits, Barb is a self taught artist who has 15 years drawing people, pets and homes.  Her Etsy shop not only carries some of her drawings, but is fill with ornaments for each holiday.  She has hand painted each one and added just the right amount of glitter.  You will also find some unpainted so you can add your owe artist touch to them.  They are all handmade with gypsum stone for many years of use.

There are many more amazing and talented artist on Etsy and many from Michigan. Have fun shopping in the mitten state.
