Annie's Apple Pie~

Hi Blog Friends,
Gonna be another wet day here in the Valley, but that's okay. We need the rain!

Finished up a couple of these cuties this week!
Annie's Apple Pie~ pattern by Sandy of You are Special.

What a sweet face!

And her pie looks delicious enough to eat!

I forgot how much I love making raggedy's~
I have lots more to work on, so best get busy!

Thank you to all the sweet comments you ladies leave me. 
I have good intentions on responding to you, but time seems to slip away
or maybe I'm just lazy that way.
I just want you all to know, I read your comments and visit your blogs to see what your up to.
You are an inspiration to me!
Sometimes I think about giving up blogging, as I'm not consistent with it. But then I think back to the reason I started blogging~ to share and promote all the talented designers patterns and most of all make some wonderful friends!
So, please don't think I'm not visiting you, I am
And I enjoy my visits with you!

Have a great weekend!
Many Blessing to YOU!

Some finishes

Hi blog friends,
The suns shining and it's a beautiful day!
We've had  some much needed rain here in the valley, the past few days. 
So I got busy trying to get some more things finished for the selling booths.

These are very simple 1812 Prairie Dolls, 
pattern by The Primitive Pear.

Charlette and her Sunflower,
 pattern by Threadbare Primitives.

I omitted the heart on her dress ~
 and now looking at her, I think she needs a few buttons down her dress.
Note to self~ add buttons. Lol.

Here we have Mirabell and her melon.
another pattern by Threadbare Primitives.
Still need to add button eyes and some embellishments, but you get the idea.

This little cutey just spoke to my heart as I was making her, so she will be staying with me. Smiles. 

They are all made from a pattern by Drakestone Primitives Country Cabin.
They are suppose to be black seed bag dolls, 
but I did a few with strawberry emries and some just aged.

Large primitive pear~ much larger than I thought they'd be, but I do love them.
Pattern by Tennessee Ridge Primitives. 

Bee and lady bug bowl fillers.
The small bee is from a pattern by Threadbare Primitives, 
The large bee is a pattern by Kentucky Primitives, 
and the ladybug is of my own design.

And I wanted to share my find at the flea market this past weekend.
This beautiful stoneware bowl.
It was only $1.99!

Tried to get a pic of the age cracks, but it's hard to see in the pic.

So, there you have it! More things accomplished, but I have even more to finish this week.
Thank you for stopping by to see what I've been up to.
Time flies when your having fun!
Hope you are having fun in what ever your doing!

Not been slacking~ promise!

Hi Blog Friends,
The days just keep flying by!
I've been so busy trying to get a lot of things done for my selling booths.
I have piles of things in different stages all over the house!

I wanted to share these colonial pantry cakes I finished last night.

Can you believe they are made of fabric!!!
I found the pattern at Patternmart~ pattern by Homespun Heart Primitives.
I decorated mine a little different from the designer and love how they turned out.
Good enough to eat!! 

I've been seeing stars!
Bowl fillers that is~
Taken from a Threadbare Primitives pattern.

Dolls, birds, bees, lady bugs and more dolls!
All waiting to be completed.

Well, back to work for me.
Hope you are having a fun creative week!
Thanks for visiting!
Prim Blessings,

Finished project:

Hi Blog Friends!

Thank you all for leaving such sweet comments on my last post.
You have no idea how much it means to me to receive so much love.
It just touches my heart that so many of you take the time to stop and comment on my posts.
Thank you!
Well, I finished the hutch last evening and think it turned out perfect for what I want to use it for.
I'll be changing my selling booth next week and want to use this as a display piece.


I was thinking first to do in black, but then in thinking about how it would look in a 5'x5' space~ 
I thought it would be to dark. I think the aged white will look fresh and open.

I even did the interior.

The top of the base cabinet has a wood grain for-mica top, so I couldn't do anything with it.  

I forgot to share this great find from the weekend too.

A 1985 Longaberger basket! From the same vendor I purchased the hutch from.
I paid $6.00 for it! 

It's in perfect condition and has a nice patina on it.

And I finished another penny mat last night.

Now I have three more to go.

Well, I'm on a roll Ladies! 
Today I have a stack of sewing waiting for me~ dolls, birds, journals, and some mail bags.
Hope you are having a great productive day in whatever you are doing.

Blessings and thanks for stopping by.

Weekend find:

Hi blog friends!
It's another beautiful day here in the valley.
Wanted to share a great find I purchased for my selling booth display this past weekend.
This small hutch!
I got it for a steel~ at $30!
I'm working on sanding painting and distressing it today and will share pics of how it turns out once done.

Bottom ~ dust was included in the price! Lol.


Here's a pic of the ladder back chairs I purchase two weeks ago for a steel.
I'm working on making the template for the make do's this week.

And here is one of the penny mats finished. Loving how they are turning out!

Had to share a pic of the little critter "Bunny" I purchased from Maureen of Sweet Meadows Farm.
I'll have to purchase the pattern for making these next year. He is just so sweet!

Gotta get busy with the make overs!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
