It is OFG's Monday Marketplace! Welcome!

Good morning readers. It is Monday once again and here is another fabulous artist from the Olde Farmhouse Gathering Team! Today my featured artist is a crafter of all talents and has a shop that is to die for! I could take everything she/ and her husband create and find many places to put in all of the rooms of my home and still wouldn't get enough. From their wooden bowl shelves to their rustic stacking boxes and country stitcheries and tyme of olde signs, rolling pins and handcrafted shelves Carol's shop is any primitive/ handcrafter lover's dream! If you LOVE things in your home that say primitive perfection she must have it because this is just a small taste of what you will see! Her husband is the mind behind the wonderful wooden items and Carol is the artist that puts that fab primitive finished look to everything her shop contains! Come take a look at some of my favorites:

Isn't this all candy for that true primitive lover's eyes?! Not only is Carol a very talented artist she is also a wonderfully delightful person to chat with! I'm sure you will enjoy her shop and truly have a wonderful experience becoming a customer of hers! Follow me now and learn about the person behind the art! Enjoy the questionaire that she filled out and hope you learn some about what makes her tick!LOL

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
Firecrackerkid Primitives. I chose this name, because I was born on the 4th of July, and my family always called me "the firecrackerkid". My father said when I was born I came out with a bang, jokingly of course. Plus it's Independence Day, and I really love my country, and my freedom so it all fits together nicely.

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
One year and four months

3. What type of items do you offer?
One-of-a-kind Woodcrafts and reproduction woodcrafts of different Early American dough bowl racks and furniture.

4. How long have you been crafting?
Twenty years.

5. Who or What inspires you?
The love of all things Primitive. Plus, the economy is what inspired my husband and myself to make our own Primitives. My husband is who inspires me, because of his hard work ethics, and the fact that he can do just about anything or any challenge put before him. He's a hard working man. A Jack-of-all-trades so to speak. He was a carpenter since he was a teenager, and even built our home along with several other homes locally. Pretty inspiring and impressive to me.

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
That would be our one-of-a-kind items. We like to come up with unique primitive woodcrafts that are appealing to others, and yet at the same time are functional in the home.

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)

Again her name is Carol Anderson aka Firecracker Kid! You can see much more of her art by visiting her shop today!
