Primitive Sunday Market

I am really ready for Spring but I know I have a little while. Being in the Spring mood, I have created these primitive bunny heads as my Primitive Sunday Market offering. These rabbit heads are made from grungy muslin and are self standing. They have vintage button eyes, vintage cotton batting noses and raw flax whiskers. They have a grungy homespun tie around their necks with a rusty tin bell. These rabbit heads measure 7 1/4" tall X 4" wide and 6 1/2" tall X 3 3/4" wide and would look great tucked in between your prims and antiques, on your cupboards or shelves and can be left out all year long.

SOLD!!! Thank you so much!!

Primitive Bunny Rabbit Doll for Sale

I sure have been bitten by some kind of bug this past week! I think in a day or two it should be leaving me....hopefully so I can feel 100% again!!

I finally finished a hand made to share with all of you. With working my job and then doing work for hubby...time sure is limited for creating. As I make some creations, I will be offering them to you on my blog. I made this sweet bunny doll from a catnap primitives pattern. She is made from grungy musling and measures 22" long. She has vintage button eyes, old cotton batting nose and flax whiskers. Her dress is made from muslin and a blue check skirt. Her skirt is adorned with aged cheese cloth and two dried okra. She is so primitive and simple looking and can be left out all year long!

SOLD!! Thank you very much!

My New Creation

is finally done!!!!! I thought I would have had him finished sooner but I have been busy as usual. I am so pleased with the way he turned out. He is made out of fake fur and is grungy to prim perfection:) He has some weight to him and is not jointed......that is whole other project. He has vintage shoe buttons for eyes, a homespun ruffled collar with two large rusty bells and a make do blue ticking patch on his belly. So...what do ya think?

I have also been looking for some new graphics for my blog and website and have entered into the world of digital scrapbooking. I am just amazed at all of the free scrapbooking supplies out there. I also just got Photoshop CS4 on my computer and am learning how to use the program. So I might just come up with some new graphics soon.

Getting Organized

was not what I planned to do today but am so glad it is done! Hubby and I went shopping at the local Walmart today and as I was looking around the kitchen items I found this cool spice rack and some pantry jars. The jars come in three different sizes and have a brushed aluminum looking lid. I just may paint the lids black and add some vintage looking labels to them.

Once we got home we organized the whole pantry (it is the size of a large closet), checking dates on everything, washing down the shelves and getting rid of things that we do not use. I washed and filled the new pantry jars with flour, sugar and coffee and organizing all of the spices. Once the pantry was done, there was no stopping us, lol we started on all of the kitchen cabinets and drawers, organizing everything!! I am a little pooped now and just getting ready to relax. I just love when everything is clean and organized and accomplishing something that needed to be done!

Tomorrow I hope work on my new project...not sure I will have it done but should be really close! Have a great Sunday!!

Wishing all my friends a Happy New Year!

I cannot believe another year has gone by! So far, the beginning of 2010 looks very promising! I awoke next to my loving husband and to a bright sunny day!!!! The temperature is freezing outside but at least it is sunny out and nice and cozy inside! We made breakfast and started packing away the Christmas decorations and will just relax the rest of the day.

I am working on a new project and hope to have it finished by the end of the weekend so I can share it with you. I am very excited about it and cannot wait to finish.

I wish all of my friends, new and old .....a Healthy, Prosperous and Happy 2010!!! I also wanted to say Thank You to all of my dear customers for a wonderful 2009!!
