For the past 2 weeks, Kim from True Up has been featuring wonderful, whimsical and symmetrical fabrics that have their roots in PA Dutch folk art. Living in southeastern PA, these types of designs - and everything else PA Dutch - are inescapable. Chicken pot pie, "throw the cow over the fence some hay" and lots of other PA Dutch-ese is pretty thick here, too.
When I was antiquing yesterday, I came across lots of folk art stuff - but I really liked these 2 tablecloths. And after having seen True Up's featured fabrics, I began to see this art form in a completely different light! I guess the fish is the last one to see the water! I am much more appreciative of the balance, harmony, artistry and light-hearted symbols of hearth and home. What do you think?
