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

Monday Merchant withThebagglady76

Welcome to the first Monday in April.  Spring is here, flowers are blooming and the sun is out, what a great Monday it is.  Before you run out to play outside, take a break and visit with Fran from Thebagglady76.  Fran named her shop for the bag ladies she is fascinated with and the year she graduated high school.  Fran lives just north of me in the great state of Michigan.  Once you step into Fran's Etsy Shop you will find her love for fabric, both new and vintage.  She also does some upcycling giving her work a very unique look.  You will find some wonderful for gifts  either for giving or for yourself.  The vintage spoon pin cushion caught my eye, what will catch yours.  Make sure to add this shop to your favorites before you leave.

I ask you now - could Fran be any more PRIM.authentic or well made. I think not. Great feature. Thanks Rose for helping me know Fran a little better. Oh Heck, now I have to go figure out what those weird words are. Sigh.
