Monday evening....

Hello! Hope everyone is doing ok on this HOT Monday! It's a little after 5:00 here and 93 degrees....Whew! I just came in from doing some errands and noticed how almost perfect this is....our BEAUTIFUL Crepe Myrtle Tree.
It has gotten so big over the years, think it probably needs to be trimmed back this fall. Hubby has done a great job keeping it as a tree, instead of a bush... And, I love it the way it is now...........
Thanks for stopping by!

Sunday morning....

Good Morning!

Life has become quite hectic in the Freshwater household as of late.....too many irons in the fire.  I haven't had much of a chance to be on here lately...and not quite sure if anyone has missed me. LOL!! I realized recently tho that I really loved blogging...I'm thinking I should try to find time to do more than I have been. I really have enjoyed sharing my thoughts and ideas with everyone.

As I am planning my week, a cute story comes to mind.......

Several years ago as I was trying to decide whether or not to get back in to the "CRAFTING BUSINESS", I met these two ladies, in a hole-in-the-wall shop about 30 minutes from my home. After several visits to their store and many more conversations, they convinced me to rent a space in their tiny store. As it turned out, this little space got me started doing what I'm doing today. They were actually the ones that named my business......One of the owners (Linda) thought Homespun and Primitives described me to a tee.....
But on to my real story. I developed a really nice following there, actually rather quickly. I couldn't keep my booth full. Folks would come in and make a bee-line to my space. Robin (the other owner) told me one day that I could sell almost anything, even stitcks,  if it had homespun tied on it.....wala! This is what I went home and made.
I have brought back "RAG TWIGS" to my web site.  A really prim alternative to rag balls.
It's amazing how many I have sold...Personally, I love them. And such a conversation piece!
You can find them here:

Afterthought, I want you all to know that I kept a booth in that store for over 9 years...until the day the doors closed for good, a couple of years ago. It was a most rewarding that I will always remember.


Be sure and check out my web site....

 for this week's SPECIAL.

and later this week, two new dolls!

I'll be back soon! Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and Blessings,
