Been awhile….

Since I have made a real post.

Hi Blog Friends!

I can’t believe it’s already December!

I’ve been working pretty much non-stop for the past three months making items for my selling booth and consignment shops.  I am sooooo grateful to all my customers for purchasing the items I make. It’s always been a dream of mine to make crafts and sell them to people who love them. This year has been wonderful!

Since I don’t have enough to do already, lol, starting in a week or so, I’ll be opening a new selling booth at the Courthouse Antiques Shop in Luray VA. I’m so excited to be able to expand and sell my wares to an area that I know will love the items I make. So, if your ever in Luray or New Market VA you’ll have to come and check my booths out!

This past week I took a break from making Holiday items and worked on some new offerings.

These sweet little homestead dolls are a design by Karen of Primitive Life in an English Cottage. Karen was so sweet to share her pattern with me. Thank you dear friend~ I love making these little ladies!   They are completely rag stuffed and aged to perfection, although the pics don’t reflect the aging.  Karen also has a selling blog~ Olde Cottage Primitives. You should stop by and see her offering.

Then I made a few of these~ Civil war soldiers journals. This is a design by Dee Duncan at pattern mart. I love how they turned out. Such an old worn feel. I hope they sell well, as I live in an old civil war town.

On Sunday I finally found some time to put my twig tree up. I’m not doing a lot of decorating this year. I’m just putting out my most favorite things and be happy with that.

These blacken wax bells and little booties I purchased from Sandy at The Country Cupboard a few months back. I love how they look.

Well that’s about it for today. This week, with the exception of today, is suppose to be pretty dreary with rain, so I’ll be working to get some orders done and maybe a few more Christmas items made.

Wishing everyone a great week!

Prim Blessings, Jean
