"Oh Golly"

Hello to you with big smiles from me...
So good to see you drop by...

I thought I would tell you about my collection..Well actually, I have a few collections, but the one I'm going to show you is about GOLLIES...
I love Gollies..I love the way they look..Love the memories they hold..Love the different names..Love the big red lips and the big afro hair..

'Apron Babies'
So cute, I couldn't resist painting this Mammie..
A design from the talented Kerryanne from 'Woodberry Designs..

Every year my patch girls and I save our pennies for the crafts shows..  Cause who can resist a bargin or a new idea..
One of my favorite stores is 'The Craft Cubby'
That's where I buy my collection of Golly Pins..  I have one more to collect 'Pin 2', and then I have the lot..
I also brought 'Gollyville'.. A huge applique quilt, which is still in the packs... I am number 206 on the collectables list..

This painting came from a few appilque patterns I got from  'The Craft Cubby'..
It was my first experiance at folk-art and thought gollies were a good start..
I have so many Golly patterns, I'd be here for a long time putting up pics.  However, now that I'm doing the OPAM this year, I might actually pull out some patterns to do...
LOL, I've just finish a painting I started before Christmas last year...  It's a Jamie Mills-Price design 'Home Sweet Home'..  She has a site called 'Between The Vines'... Well worth having a look..  She has such beautiful designs..

Here are some more folk-art work I did, again designs from 'Woodberry Designs'

I hope you enjoyed my collections of Gollies..  From Me and my good friend Bobby the Golly, we would like to say "How we love ya" when you stop by.
Have an ace day..Take care and be safe.

Big Smiles To you From me,


  1. Hi Michelle,
    Beautiful job done on all these pieces.
    Great photo shoot as well.

  2. I love gollies too. Wonder if you have any of the same ones I do. I'd be happy to share you some I've already made if you dont have them already :)

  3. Hey Michelle
    I just got an email from your account that
    I know didn't come from you. I think someone has hacked into your email. I didn't want to reply to it and hope this gets to you although it may not since you're obviously hacked.
    This email was saying you were out of the country in London and had been mugged of your belongings and you needed me to send you $2200. I really hope your computer info stays safe.
    I can't stand these mongrels. I've had some asian chic ringing here the past few days saying our computer is in trouble from crashing and they need info to 'fix' it. Yeah right!..they want to hack my computer. They obviously think I'm stupid but I'm NOT giving them any access to my stuff. Good luck with it lovely lady

  4. Well what a cute collection. Never heard of Gollies before.
