The Arnold Print Works Menagerie

Arnold Print Works was a textile outfit that produced some delightful cloth animals around the turn of the 20th century. I love the primitive, folky look of this basket of kittens:

I'd like to perch this stern hoot-owl on my desk, to glower at me when I need to get to work:

hey there folksy mama! I just found your blog and much to my surprise, there was my Arnold Print Works rabbit, sitting on my child's settee! Thanks for the link to my website. I appreciate that. Now, what I want to know is, would you sell your owl? I think the answer is no, but thought I'd ask anyway. Are you still loosing your hair? Hope not.
