Majacraft Pioneer: Beautification Project
The first time I saw a Pioneer spinning wheel I thought, "It begs for decoration." The smooth wheel is a perfect palette...if you are an artist. I am not. So I looked around on Etsy and found someone whose art I liked, Mrs. Carolyn Gardner. See her other work here.
I e-mailed Carolyn and asked if she'd paint a spinning wheel, and she said she'd be happy to try it. I told her I wanted her to have complete freedom, as long as the work had sheep in it! This is the result. The wheel is identical on both sides. I love it!
