NEW Harvest Stocking

Well, I hate to say this...but this Primitive Pumpkin Harvest Stocking will be my last Fall offering for the year....on to Christmas items! Where does the time go? Hopefully I will be able to create more Christmas/Winter items and will be working hard on them this week!

This Primitive Pumpkin Harvest Stocking measures 18 1/2" not including her stem. The stocking is made from an antique blanket and has the word "Harvest" embroidered on it along with three rusty bells. She is so simply prim and would look great hanging any where in your prim home!

Sunflower Corn Husk Wreath Tutorial

It has been such a busy October and I have not had a chance to create and I am really missing it dearly!! My mother in law was admitted into the hospital on Oct 1st and was diagnosed with Diverticulitis. Diverticulitis occurs when small pouches (diverticula) commonly found in your large intestine become infected or inflamed. She was in the hospital for 15 days with a severe infection. She does not need surgery at this time but if her symptoms occur again she will have to have the surgery. She is staying with hubby and I until she gets back on her feet, so for now she is my patient!

This past week, I felt like the patient and had a nasty sore throat, fever, chills, and sinus infection. I feel much better than I did three days ago, but not 100% yet, hopefully in a few more days. It was not too fun being the patient trying to take care of the other patient, lol, but we making it work!!

I was able to have a little free time and was searching the internet and came across this awesome sunflower corn husk wreath with pine cones and wanted to share. This is just beautiful! This wreath would look gorgeous welcoming your Thanksgiving guests!

Harvest Time...........

The weather has been absolutely beautiful the past few days. Pretty sure this will be the last warm weekend for the year, kind of sad about that!!! The trees are starting to turn around here and with the bright sun shining on them...they look gorgeous! Can't wait until they are in full color!! It was such a beautiful day to visit one of my favorite places in the country....Harvest Time Farm. They have such beautiful mums, pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, gourds, Indian corn, corn stalks and bails of straw. They also have a few roosters and chickens that were a hoot to watch!
