Hi Blog Friends!
It’s been a rainy dreary week here in the valley. Seems like the East Coast just keeps getting pounded with bad weather lately. I hope this is not any indication as to what the winter is going to be for us.
I just wanted to stop in and say a big HELLO to all my new followers! And a big THANK YOU to all my friends for posting my giveaway to their blogs. I have exceeded my goal of reaching 250 followers so, I will be drawing a second name on 9/16 for a little goodie.

I managed to get some new things done this week in between filling orders from my consignment shops. Boy these shops are keeping me busy! I truly do appreciate all the customers whom love my creativity.
Witch boots with tea light. I made bunches of these last year and they sold very well for me, as they are selling well again this year.
Prim scarecrow using the body from a sweetpea primitives pattern.
And I’m trying these out. Witches book of spells and potions. I made these by covering composition books with black flannel, then made the label on the computer and printed it off onto grungy muslin and glued to the front cover. I tied jute twine around and tucked some sweet annie in the twine. I also used walnut ink dye to age the outer edges of the pages. I love how they turned out, but not sure if any will sell. Guess we’ll see.
This weekend is the Rt 340 yard crawl and I ‘m hoping the sun will be shinning. I’m not selling anything this time, I’m going bargain hunting instead. I want to find things I can make over. I found a wood chair that I want to do a make-do chair out of and when I went to the landfill last week, there was a small coffee table sitting out beside the dumpster asking me to take it home and make over. LOL! These will be great projects to do once the weather gets cooler. I’ll be sure to share when they’re done.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Stay safe and be kind to one another.
Prim Blessings, Jean
