**CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**...I found this neat antique wall box at the Woodstock Antique Mall in Georgia when I visited a friend in February. I thought this punch needle bunny, hopping over his carrots, would be a nice addition to the box. It is not permanently attached, but rather is attached by way of a thread hanger. It is easily removed, if desired. The wall box measures 9" at the back, 5 1/4" wide and 41/2" deep. It has all the nicks and scuffs that form the wonderful patina on a piece of old treen of this age. I am kindly asking 85.00, plus postage for this item. I gladly accept paypal, MasterCard/Visa or personal check. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com or countrykeepers@att.net to make a purchase. Thanks so much for your visit!

SOLD...**CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**...I am offering this wonderful tombstone-top cabbage slicer with my Farmer Bunny punch needle piece. The bunny is wearing a pair of overalls and has a carrot stuck down into his pocket on the bib part of his overalls. Farmer bunny was made using Valdani thread and is only hanging from the hole in the cutter top, rather than being permanently attached to the board. I do not want to damage the finish on this nice antique cutter board! The bunny could also be placed in a basket of greens or on a bookshelf. I sewed a piece of 100% wool on the back. The bunny is holding a small carrot but even the carrot can be removed if desired! The cutter measures about 19 3/4" long x 7 1/4" wide. I appreciate your visit today to my page here at PHM!

**CLICK IMAGE TO SEE MORE PHOTOS**..I have made this punch needle lady, holding a tulip and heart, to lay on top of this old book. The book was covered long ago with a piece of checked fabric in a pale red/cream....there is a water stain on the top but it only adds to the charm and antique feel of the book. The punched piece is not attached to the cover and can be moved around on top or to a specific page of the book. I backed the lady with a piece of 100% wool. The book measures about 7 1/2" long x 5 1/8" wide. This might be a great Mother's Day gift! I am kindly asking 59.00, plus postage for this original design.
