What a weekend it's been............

Wow, I see I have a few new followers. Welcome everyone. The more the merrier.

I don't know about you all but the weekend just flew by. Well, last Friday my boyfriend went up to our place in PA to check on things and guess what!!!! Someone broke in and stole a lot of his tools out of the building. They cut the large chains and locks he had on the doors and cleaned house. (3 chain saws, an air compressor unit, circular saws, power washer and more I'm sure of, but can't account for yet) We are just sick over it. Why do people have to be so darn greedy. And to top it off, he did not have insurance. Oh, well life goes on......

Saturday was my b-day, so we drove down to Fishersville VA to the Winter in the Valley show. It was very nice, a lot of beautiful prim goods....a little rich for me but was nice to look. Then we stopped at some antique malls, I found a great deal on old wooden spools. Now I need to figure out a craft for them...hee hee.

I spent Sunday and Monday working on a craft challenge put on by Denise (NeeNee) from Prim patterns n handmades

She supplied a free bunny body pattern and challenged anyone who wanted to participate to come up with a bunny idea. I thought it would be fun, I never turn down a crafting challenge.

Sooooo...Meet Harriett and Henry.

They are so prim!!! Harriett is dressed in an aged soft floral print that I just adore, and Henry has his old blue denim on. They are both holding some prim carrots I made from muslin and paint, then added natural excelsior to the tops.

I've been thinking of doing a blogger giveaway and they may be just who I'll use for it. What do you think??

I'll get the wheels turning and post the details by the end of February. So stay in touch.

Gotta lot of other crafties I'm working on, so I best get to work.

Oh, yeah, I changed my background and header, What do you think??? And can anyone tell me how in the world do you add someones button/badge to the sidebar??? I have entered a few other giveaways on the blogger, but for the life of me I can not figure out how to add them to my sidebar like some you all do.....inquiring minds want to

Boy, where does the time go.......

Do you ever wonder, where does the time go???

Well, I have been working on some new items to sell in my Etsy shop and taking breaks surfing the blogger for Prim friends and before you know it its 9pm.

This blog stuff is so addictive... Many of you offer wisdom, encouragement, and even free stuff. I see my following has grown to 6 in the short time I started blogging and am so happy to have them. Thank you all for your interest.

As I said I have a few new things I've been working on so I would like to share some pics with you.

I just love the Bunny Bowl fillers, they have blue button eyes. And the little bear was an experiment, but she turned out beautifully. Don't you think??

My B-day is Saturday, so my boyfriend and I are going to the Winter in the Valley Antique and Craft Show. Lori, from Notforgotten Farm is going to be there, that's how I learned of the show from her blog. I hope to meet her and see some of her things in person. It's a small world sometimes to see someone else on the net and have them be closer than you think.

With that, I better get off here and continue working on some new crafts....will share as I get them done.

Have a wonderful evening and Prim Blessings to you all.

New Handmade's I'm adding to my Etsy Shop....and more about me

I will be listing these items as well as others in my Etsy Shop later today. Here's a sneek peak:

Meet Julie Annie and her dollies. She is 42" tall and just as sweet as can be. I will be listing her in my Etsy Shop...So go on over and see more of my crafts at I handmade Julie Annie using a pattern from You Are Special and the little dollies using a pattern from Denise White.

This is Mary Beth and her friends Teddy and Wabbit. My pics do not do her justice, but I think she is just adorable. I will be putting her in my antique mall booth for sale.

This is Friendship Angel Bunny, She is 29" tall from tip of ears to her toes and oh so sweet.... I handmade her using a pattern from Plum Creek Collectibles.

This is Market Bunny, another adorable bunny holding her packet of carrot seeds, just waiting for Spring to come so she can plant them. She is 24" tall made from primmed Warm & Natural batting. I handmade her from a pattern by From My Heart to Yours.

Thank you to all the pattern designers for these wonderful creations.

And a bit about me.......

All things Noah, yes I Love Noah and have quite a collect. The pics below are just some of the Noah things I have. The place I live in right now does not allow me to display all of my collection, so many of them are packed away for safe keeping. Hoping to move in the near future so I have plenty of room to surround myself with my full collection.

My favorite is the hand carved Noah I purchased at a decoy show in Easton MD a few years ago.

And here are the Loves of my life.....

This is a picture of me and my bestfriend Larry. Taken last summer at one of the lookouts on the Blue Ridge Mtns....

And here are our kids: Snoopy and Brandy. Snoopy is a 7 yr old Dachshund Beagle mix I rescued and Brand is a 4 yr old Black Lab. I love dogs...their loyal, loving, cuddley and non judgmental. If I could afford it I would have a whole farm full of dogs.

Well gotta get some work done, until next time - Have a wonderful day!!
Prim Blessings,

Well the snow has ended here in the valley. WooHoo!!! We have a whopping total of 38"!!! That's just SNOW...the drifts are much higher. I'm like many others here on the East Coast "Come on SPRING!!" As you may see in the pics....I'm alittle scared of the big pine next to the house. So far only one limb has broken off away from the house.

Thought I would share some photos of the snow.

This is what I'm wishing it would look like out there!!

Will post soon, some new crafts I've been working on and I will show you who the loves of my life are...heehee. Check back soon.

New listing on Etsy!!! And more SNOW!!

Here is a new listing on my etsy website. As you can see I am wishing for SPRING.

I hand made this Prim flower arrangement using muslin fabric for the flowers and bee. The sack base is an old quilt I found at a flea market I cut up. It was to far gone to try to fix, so I am re-purposing it by using in my crafts. If you would like more info on it please visit my Etsy shop at .

We are preparing for another big snow her in the valley..... I am so sick of snow, they are forecasting 12 to 24" for us here. We are still trying to recover from the last two snows this past week; where we got 4" and 7" . Come on SPRING!!!!! I hope the groundhog was
