Past Customer’s Painted Milkchurn – LLCrafts, NI

Painted ‘Fergie Tractor’ Milkchurn – Past Customer Returns

Handpainted by NI, UK Artist Louise Lester (BA Hons) 
LLCrafts

This was a beautiful Commissioned Milkcan Order with a ‘Ferguson Tractor’ painted on the front, by myself ……. that was completed 11years ago, in 2006! …….. and it was wonderful to hear from this Bellaghy, Co. Londonderry customer again returning to us with yet another order, this time an ‘Exterior Door Number Slate’!
Over the years Evelyn has also ordered other personalized painted gifts, including her husband’s vintage saw, her old iron skillet and my ‘Queens University’ Artwork Hanging Plaque for her son and daughter-in-law!

My ‘LLCrafts‘ business has been successful now for 16years!

It was brilliant to hear that the milkchurn was as good as the day it was painted …… Happy Days!
with Evelyn saying “Everything is as good today, as the day they were all painted Louise!”

It is always fantastic to hear from past customers again and even better for them to come back and order again!
This has actually been the THIRD happy past customer this week, from years ago, coming back …….  saying hello and placing orders!
Louise 🙂
