Vintage Americana Tag Set and Paper Mache Box

I just love the Vintage Americana image I've used on this primitive box, with a set of four matching tags inside. I've painted a papier mache box a deep red, with a black antiquing effect that gives it a "time worn" look. It would be perfect for your 4th of July decorating!

Our Featured PFATTie......Kaf Grimm of Old Cape Primitives 'Grimitives'

****Grimitives Greetings!****

Thank you for taking the time & interest to learn a little bit more about Grimitives...

Who is Kaf?? Wife, Daughter, Care Giver to my Wonderful Mom. A Dollmarker, Artist , Photographer.

That's me Kaf~Designer and crazy owner of Olde Cape Primitives 'Grimitives Originals'. I live on Cape Cod (on beautiful 6A-Old King's Highway). We are nestled among beautiful apple trees~situated atop a hill overlooking a view of the ocean.

I've been designing and sewing since I was a little girl. My wonderful Nana taught me the ins and outs of sewing. She has since passed away but I will always treasure the times spent sewing with her. My dream was to go to art school and become a fashion designer. Well, I graduated from New England School of Art & Design: Fashion Illustration; and instead of clothes, I design dolls. I also love to draw~I've done illustrations for jewelry stores, and I also have some published drawings in "The Best of Gourmet Cookbooks".

I guess I get my talent from my Mom; Alice Foley, a self taught artist and my #1 employee. Thank You Mom!

Special thanks to my best friend; my sweet and wonderful husband Dickie, who I could not live without!

Our items are handmade with lots of LOVE... hand-stitching & fine details & the finest materials.

I have a passion for vintage textiles (Which I incorporate into all of my dolls), tinsel garlands, glass glitter, buttons, pins, dresses and baby shoes, Halloween/Christmas vintage goodies....etc.

With much care & love all our Grimitive Dolls have a red fabric heart hand-stitched to their bodies…

So you can be assured you are getting a Grimitive Original!!
My passion and challenge is to be unique, original... to bring a smile, and a muse to ones heart!!!
