Last, but not least, here is a small selection of folk art spotted at the Old Summit Country Antique Show. The naive bird above is either a pencil or watercolor illustration, I couldn't tell, but either way, it was quite charming. Below are some whimsical pieces crafted from walnut shells ~ a wonderful start for a collection.
Antique dealer and friend, Phil Hoover, created these wonderful sculptural assemblages from found items ~ the base of which are ladder frames. These pieces are pieced together with amazing craftsmanship and would make a great statement in a room. I especially love the drill bit detail on the smaller piece.
