Good morning Blogging Friends!
Another Monday and a GORGEOUS one at that!
I hope your Easter Celebrations were memorable....in a GOOD way!
My children were all here on Saturday and I was in 'Heaven'! I was still a bit under the weather as was our Twirly Girl but I still put a great meal on the table and we had a fabulous time hiding and hunting eggs with the Twins!

Today I'd like to introduce you to a sweetheart and a VERY TALENTED PAFA Team member.....
KIM of THE BARN HOLLOW!
Here's a little interview with Kim and some pics of her wonderful creations!
My name is Kim and my business name is The Barn Hollow. I love old barns,
the treasures they hold and the history behind their doors. When I found the
graphics I currently use for my blog and website name just seemed to fit perfectly.
I have been creating for 30+ years. in the late 80's and early 90's, my business
name was The Country Cottage. After taking a few years to step away,
I restarted my business as The Barn Hollow in 2011.
I am inspired by anything and everything. I seem to get most of my ideas for
new designs after going"antiquing". There are so many different shapes,
colors, textures and fabrics that you can't help but be inspired. I never leave the house without a sketch book. We make several trips to
Tennessee to see our grandchildren and for some reason I come up with some
of my best ideas while tooling down the interstate. I also design quilt blocks,
and get so many of my ideas for those in nature. Last summer I put in my
first garden in almost 20 years and designed a set of six blocks all based on
My creative style is a combination of primitive, country and folk art.
I love them all and try to create items that will appeal to all of my customers.
I am however, creating more primitives lately, I just love the simplicity of
I create the majority of my items using fabric. All of my items are hand made
by me. I am a perfectionist and take extreme pride in everything I make. We
all work so hard to make a living and hope for that little extra to buy ourselves
that something special. I strive to make sure that my customers' hard earned
money is well placed when they purchase something from me and that they are pleased with their "something special".
