Folk artists

You know how you get tired of the web from time to time and then suddenly you stumble upon a whole new pocket of sites which seems to sing out to your heart?
I have had one of those discoveries and i want to share some of my favourite finds:

Jody Battaglia (I wish she had a website!)
La Dee Dah Folkart
Nicole Sayre
Pat Caska
Traditional Folk Art
Christy Silacci
Jennifer Murphy (more bears etc. here)

All these folk artists seem to be playing with the same ideas that I was talking about in the entry about my toys – vintage inspiration and making things out of whatever material is available.
