Monday Market Place on Tuesday

I’m a day late for the Monday Marketplace so this is Monday Marketplace on Tuesday. I want to introduce you to a great artisan who recently joined The Old Farmhouse Gathering Etsy team. Her name is Mary Jane and her Etsy shop is “Log Cabin Memories”. I am sharing with you an interview Mary Jane recently did for the OFG team. Along with the interview are some photos from the great selections she offers in her shop. Please note the URL of her Etsy shop at the end of this interview and drop by to see the other great items that she offers.


What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?

My shop name Is LogCabinMemories-----I chose this name because it reminds me of the log cabin where I was born. The cabin was in the hills of West Virginia and was built my dad. We only lived there for several years but the memories are warm and pleasant.



How long have you been on Etsy?

I started the shop in March


What type of items do you offer?

My items are all hand painted, Country,Prim,Folk Art, I paint on a variety of different surfaces, wood tin, canvas, using acrylic and oils. I like to find goodies at antiques shops, yard sales, auctions and flea markets.



How long have you been crafting?

I starting painting as a child, using paint by number, and have been doing some painting off and on ever since. I have taken a few classes and was a member of the decorative painting.



Who or what inspires you.

I love all the wonderful colors the Lord has created. The colors of the different season of the year, old buildings, other artist beautiful work, an old shoe, light bulbs.




What is your favorite item in your shop and why?

The wooden shoe form; the shoe form is different and I like to paint on things that are old and not often used.

Other places where you can be found (EBay, webstore, blog)

I do not have a lot of promo sights yet, I have a Facebook account and post some of my photos there.
I hope to start a blog.

I love that shoe! I just recently found a set of shoe stretchers here in the house. I'd love to have something painted on them. I was going to leave them alone and just keep them setting where I put them. But now, my wheels are turning. They are wooden and have a knob on top of them that adjust the length.
