Hi Blog Friends,
Happy Spring to you all!
This past weekend was nice and sunny here in VA, but the temps were a bit on the cool side.
I've been wanting to plant a small veggie garden for a few years now, and with the price of veggies going up (green peppers at Wal-Mart are at $1.44 each!) I’m finally getting my way. Usually all I do is buy a couple of tomato plants and stick’em in a pot on the patio. We spent most of the weekend working out in the yard getting the area for my garden tilled and ready for the planting season. I also bought some packets of seeds and a seed starter greenhouse and sowed the seeds for starting in doors. Now I’m not a farmer or much of a veggie grower, I do love to plant flower gardens and watch them grow, so this will be an adventure seeing if my garden will grow or produce the fruits of my labor.lol.
I did manage to get some crafts done this past week.
Basket with Prim Paper Mache eggs and a grungy lite. Looks like a large nest of eggs. Much nicer in person!
Lite box of eggs and a prim bunny. Bunny is a Tennessee Ridge Primitives design. I bought a bunch of old peat pots from the flea market for $2.00 and used one for the box here. Turned out really cute!
Another prim egg carton. These are selling as fast as I make them. A really popular item this year.
Primitive style bunny with stick legs. This was a free pattern by Sweet pea Primitives in Mercantile Gatherings Magazine.
Prim Angel, pattern by positively Primitives.
Chick on a spring. Very cute and really popular this year!
Another prim angel bust which was a free pattern in Mercantile Gatherings Magazine, by Bittersweet Folk-art.
Prairie Spool Dolls, an original by me. They have become quite popular sellers also.
I also made some nap time bunnies. These cuties are made from a pattern by My Primitive Saltbox and are pretty easy. Kathy offers all her patterns at a very affordable price of $2.00 and up. I love her patterns and you can not beat the prices.
I have lots more to do this week, so I better get busy. Before I know it I’ll be out cutting the grass! Woohoo…..Spring has sprung and summers on it’s way!
Oh, and I need to go hunt for the second list of goodies Misi has posted for her scavenger hunt over at 1890 Gable house musings. Boy this one is quite the challenge! Check back for that posting.
Have a great Monday!
Prim blessings, Jean
