Coming Soon!
  Tilly is a very sweet soul. She loves tulips and plants them all along the borders of her yard. She was all ready to go to the garden party in the village dressed in her festive red star garden coat and carrying a prized tulip she preserved when she stopped by the mail box and saw her new issue of A Primitive Place Magazine! Ah! It was enough to stop her in her tracks! She decided the party could wait for her. She grabbed some strawberry tea and sat on her porch reading her favorite magazine. You can order your very own Miss Tilly Tulip! She is about a foot tall, has German glass eyes and wears a starry coat and tattered burlap garden hat. $33.00 includes travel fare. To order, visit our website or email the artist at winterberryprimz@aol.com.
