Hi Blog Friends,
Gonna be another hot day here in the valley, as I’m sure most of you are experiencing the same high temps.
Grass cutting and weeding the garden has kept me pretty busy, but I’ve been able to get some crafting in also.
Monday evening I had let my little snooper out to do his business for the night and about five minutes after being out, he started barking non stop ~ so I went out to get him so the neighbors wouldn’t complain and this is what he was barking at!
Do you see them?
Across the road from me is a small farmette with two beautiful horses that roam in this fenced field. But to my surprise two beautiful deer got in with the horses and were grazing.
Cars were going by and looking at the beautiful sight too. Then a motorcycle came and spooked them all and the deer ran up into the back field. This was the first time I’d ever seen anything like this.
This was a great find I bought at the flea market this past weekend.
An old slant top lap desk. I paid $1.00 for it!
Look at the inside!
Love the vintage cloth lining and the old paper was in it too. Pretty cool and the color on the exterior is a gray chippy paint. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it yet, but for the price I couldn’t resist.
Here’s a few pics of the things I’ve been working on.
Prim strawberry pie with mouse! I used the strawberry pattern from Deb at Paxton Valley Folk Art.
Strawberry pinkeep on a fabric covered box. My own design.
Patriotic pocket stars. Made with a pattern by A Simpler Time.
Americana Rabbit made with Crows Roost Prims pattern and stacked stars.
Uncle Sam doll~ pattern by Chestnut Junction.
Lecia over at Farmhouse Prims and I are getting together tomorrow (Thursday). She’s gonna cut and style my hair and I made her a sweet meadows farm standing prairie doll. I can’t wait for Lecia to see this doll, as I think she turned out beautiful! Sorry you’ll have to wait til Lecia posts her on her blog. I don’t want to spoil the surprise of her seeing her. Lecia does know I made her one though. We’re going to lunch afterwards and I’m so excited to meet up with her again.
I’m gonna make a few prairie dolls to sell so I’ll be working on more of the dolls this week and I also have a bunch of fall things I’m working on.
Have a great rest of the week and stay safe with all this terrible weather!
