Hi Blog Friends,
Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weekend weather. At least here in the valley it sunny, warm and beautiful.
I went out in search of some yard sales this morning and by gosh there were quite a few to be found.
I must have stopped at 25 of them but only bought from two places. Either people had mostly clothing or they wanted to much for their junk.
Here’s some of my loot!
Nice blue basket for a quarter, but I’m going to stain it to tone down the robin egg blue color. 2 cutting boards for 50 cents to make into wall hangings, 3 small pans for 75 cents to craft with, a really nice glass jar with wood lid for 50 cents~ I’ve been looking for one to do as a pantry jar for my fur baby treats. (See my beautiful peonies in the back ground?)
Then I ran into these. The top one I bought first at a sale and paid $5 for it ~ all rusty and prim. I wanted it to put my twig Christmas tree in.
Then at another yard sale I found this one for only 50 cents! It’s in great condition and I just could not pass it up. Now I’m not sure which one I want to keep. heehee.
I also found this really nice hand hooked rug for only 50 cents! I thought it would look nice as a pillow. When I bought it I did not realize the deer antlers spelled out welcome, but it’s still cute. Someone put a lot of time in making it.
I also got a nice little foot stool to redo, but I left it in the garage so no pic of it. So that was my junking adventure for this weekend.
Here’s the farmer cat finished up. I love making these. They turn out so prim and the mice are so realistic. The patterns by Kentucky Primitives.
This is a quick and easy pattern by Chestnut Junction. Love how this Uncle Sam shelf sitter turned out.
And this Uncle Sam doll is prim and plump. The pattern is from one of my old craft magazines and I rag stuffed his body to make him feel old.
So that’s all I’ve been up to, besides cutting grass and enjoying the sun shine for a change.
Hope you all will be enjoying you weekend too.
Thanks for stopping by.
Prim Blessings, Jean
