Web Site Special......

Happy Sunday !
Hope everyone is having a great weekend! It's a bit chilly here this morning, but the sun is shining and all is bright and colorful. The trees are really beginning to change into all the wonderful oranges, yellows and browns.
I have some goodies to share, but it will be later before I have a chance to take the pictures, so in the meanwhile...
This is my Web Site Special:

Set of three primitive poinsettias Only $6.00 set plus shipping.
My daughter says to make sure I call them Christmas tree (hole) fillers.
Find them here:

Saturday, early morning...............

Good morning all! I am up early this morning because I have so much to do on this chilly, Fall day. I wanted to share my update over at the Olde Primitive Peddler with you. I'm still relatively new with this group, but I have enjoyed it so far. This is one of the prim goodies that I am offering there this month...
Set of Grungy Prim Ornaments

You can find them here, along with a few more items:

Check it out if you get a minute. There's lots more talent there to see too...


I'm looking for a way to make the blackened beeswax to coat some ready made pillar candles.I have a customer that wants some with the dirty, black look. Or anyway to make them look dark. I've only done the lumpy, bumpy kind with melted wax and cinnamon. Anyone want to share their secrets? I've looked at the local craft stores, but can't seem to find anything. Maybe, because I don't know what I'm looking for. LOL! Any help would be appreciated. :)


Forgot to take pictures when I went to the Marketplace Booth the other day, but I'm going this morning and have my camera in my bag, so hopefully I can remember to take it in. I think the booth is really loking GREAT! Next week, I'll be working on Christmmas there. I'm hoping there won't be much Fall left to deal with. 

Gonna run for now. Be back soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and Blessings,

Thursday evening....

I am back again and it's only been a few days.....we had a drippy, droopy Thursday in K-ville. I had a few errands to run and couldn't wait to get back home to sew. Did I mention that I had to buy a new sewing machine the other day? The bobbin casing on my machine got loose and sounded awful. The repairman said it would take up to 10 days to do the repairs...there is no way I could go that long without sewing, so I bought a Brother quilting machine at all places WALMART!! In all my years, I have never gone to Walmart to buy a machine, but I thought it would do in a pinch and be a back-up for me. Well, I gotta tell you...I love this little machine! It has some of neatest features and sooo many fun stitches. (Lots of stiches that my expensive machine doesn't have.) Needless to say, in between orders, I have been playing around with it, trying to figure out things that I can make and use all those nifty stitches. Right now, I'm learning how to quilt using a stipple stitch, Fun, Fun!! But, now on to what I have been doing for real..........

Here's a bit of what I have been working on lately.

Checkerboard and one of a kind cat make-do is going to the Marketplace Booth....

Who remembers these from years ago??? Be careful you might show your age. LOL!! I have made more than 50 of these in the last several weeks. Too funny! But they are kinda cute on jars....

I love how this turned out. Combined two different stencils....
and the color is rich.

Getting ready to post these on my web site:

Painted cardinal ornaments...would love to do a whole tree in them.

I had a few more pics to share, but blogger ate them! I'll be back soon with pictures from the Marketplace Booth, going over there in the next few days.

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.

Long time gone...................

Hello All!
 It's been a while, hasn't it??? As usual, I've been busy and time just slips away from me. So many plans for the Fall, but now it's here and it's time to move on to Christmas. Didn't even decorate my house inside for Fall, just a few things outside.
Finally,  found the furniture I wanted for my living room...not primitive at all, as I have to be practical, especially with Jack and Jake. Didn't want it shredded within a few days, so decided on something similiar to what I have now. It should be all ready to be delivered in a few weeks. In the meanwhile, I need to paint the room and get the carpet cleaned. Hopefully this week!!
I can't remember how long it's been since I've posted and not sure if I have you all that I have a booth in the Antiques Marketplace in Greensboro (again). I love, love, love being there. The folks are just wonderful that own and run it. I've done VERY WELL there so far. And I'm sure I could do better if I had about five more hours in my days. I'll take pictures this week when I go and share them with you all.

My web site has been updated along with a new weekly special. There's several one of a kind goodies that won't last long. This is one:

and this:
and this:
The banners have done really well for me and I'll be adding new ones all this week. They are perfect for a wreath or draped across a chair.

I guess I should run for now, but before I do...this is the web site special:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! And thank you all for the kind words in my absence!
Hugs and Blessings,
