Good morning blog friends,
Hope you all had a nice weekend!
The weather here in the valley is suppose to be much nicer this week. We had a few bad storms come through last evening, the rain came down in sheets. People on the road were having to pull over because you just could not see ahead of you. It beat our corn in the garden pretty good, so I hope it will perk back up today.
We went to PA this past weekend and boy I wish I had stayed home. We have a commercial property there that Larry likes to go check on at least once a month. Well, I decided to go with him this time. There is a room off the side of the building where we have a bed and bathroom to stay in when we go up. It’s not fancy or anything but at least a roof over your head. Well, when we got there, I went in the room and seen all these bugs climbing on the walls, floor, window….everywhere! They were STINK BUGS!!! They look prehistoric and gross…to say the least. At first I flipped out, not wanting to stay ~ but with two dogs, I could not get a motel room. So I spent most of my time vacuuming these nasty things up. Nothing kills them! And if you squash them OMG they stink! I am so thankful to be home and not have to deal with these bugs here in my home. I hope all of you out there don’t have to deal with them either.
When we got back Sunday, there was a package waiting for me from Robin over at Millstone Mercantile. I won her 300 post giveaway! Woohoo! I could not wait to open her package and stopped unloading the car, so I forgot to take pics of the package and all the wrappings.
Robin is so sweet and such a talented lady! Just look at all the hand made goodies she sent! I am so in love with all of them.
Look at these beautiful fabric covered journals and that awesome metal crow pin! She even made the card with the sheep, the grungy tea candles and the colonial soldier pinkeep. Love ‘em!
I was so hoping she would send me one of her prim banners she’d been making for her shop and boy did she ever! She sent two banners and a table scarf! Just look at this Primitive Collector table scarf~ so prim perfect!
This is on the opposite side of the scarf.
Look at these banners! Prim perfect and so appropriate for my prim farmhouse! The Welcome to our olde country porch one is going on a grapevine and being hung on my front porch. And the Bless this olde homestead one is going in my kitchen.
Robin, Thank you so much for such a generous gift. I love all the items you included. If you have never visited Robin at her blog, be sure to stop over and see what beautiful prims she has and become a follower because you don’t want to miss all she has to offer.
Well we had a wonderful time, chatting about our love of prims, and having lunch. Did you know Lecia is a hair dresser! Well she is and she did a nice job trimming my hair and styling it. Thank you Lecia, my hair feels so much better and looks great!
I couldn’t just make her the standing doll as the pattern is called Prairie Sisters, so I made her one of each! Pop over to Lecia’s blog to see a pic of her sweet prairie sisters.
This is a picture of a second set I made to offer in my selling booth. I love how beautiful these dolls are to make.
I am selling the standing prairie doll for $28.95 + postage and the sitting prairie doll for $23.95 + postage, if any one is interested. Just email me.
Well friends, I gotta get back in the swing of things and get caught up on the blogs I follow, so thanks for stopping by to see what’s been happening here at prim crafts!
Prim Blessings to you, Jean
