PRIMITIVE CLYDESDALE


This morning I was out in my gardens really early and at around 7:30 am, my friend Gillian pulled into my driveway with all of her gardening tools. She was here to help me garden. What a sweetheart. We accomplished so much today, she even trimmed up some of my trees. She also brought me this hand made primitive horse that she made and it looks so much like our "Dolly" who just recently passed away. I just love it! Thanks so much Gillian. We worked in the garden until lunch time, then I made us some grilled tuna and cheese wraps with apple, walnut, and cranberry salad on the side with a glass of my home made lemonade.  I am so glad that we worked early, as it got to be in the 90's after lunch. Gillian and her husband have a Primitive shop in Hensall, Ontario www.pinesamplerfurniture.com They make some great primitive furniture and Gillian makes gorgeous mohair bears and these primitive horses.

It even has an old quilt for the saddle pad.
I love it!
