Happy Saturday to all! I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and it continues through the week-end and always! Catey, Marc, Amity, Dave, Miss Elle, Alex, Mom, Dand and my niece Jennifer all shared a great meal together and had a chance to really catch up on the latest. It was the first time we had been together for a meal in quite a while. Everyone commented on what a nice gathering it was. Personally, I was BLESSED to have my parents with us! They are soooo special to me. They just celebrated 60 years of marriage!! Can WE even imagine that? That alone is something to be so THANKFUL for!
Also, I want you all to know that I'm having a THANKSGIVING SALE over at my web site. Save 30% on your order. Just in time for Christmas!!! I've only done this a few times over the years and this one won't last too long. Ends Monday, Nov. 26th. Stop by if you get a chance:
I've posted several new things and I'll be posting a few more in the near future. Working on some new everyday and Spring goodies. Anybody looking for anything special?
Before I close, I have to share two VERY SPECIAL loved ones with you all! Three years ago today these little brothers adopted us from the Guilford County shelter. I can not tell you the joy they have brought into our lives.
Jake is the largest of the two. He is beautiful! and a Sweetheart!
Jackson is my Baby! He is my purr-box! Always around and in my lap every chance he gets! If you ever get the chance...check out your local shelters.
I want to thank everyone for stopping by today! and don't forget to check out my web site!
Thanksgiving is almost here.....once again in the middle of my busiest time of year, I'm having folks in my house. LOL! I suppose after turkey, I can put everyone to work! Wonder who would like to do the sewing and painting? It'll be fine, I'm sure. Just need to finish up a few orders today, get the house cleaned, run to the store for last minute ingredients for a brocolli salad and make sure the turkey is ready to be cooked.
Here's a few more pics....
Gingerbread is so prim...about 14 inches tall
I think this is one of my new favorites!!! Really nice size @22 x 5.5 inches.
These are actually really small...just a few inches, but sooo cute on a tree!
As I woke up bright and early this morning, I realized it's only 40 days until Christmas. I have started my shopping, but not my decorating. When I was a little girl, my Mom wouldn't have thought about decorating this soon for the Holiday...I find it strange that the big retailers have dictated to us that we have to hurry the Holiday in. I know it's sounds strange to some folks, but it seemed to be a whole lot more special when we didn't spend 2+ monthes seeing it everywhere! Just my two cents.....
Anyway, on to my fun finds...I was in JoAnn Fabrics a couple of weeks ago and found all these buttons for my jars. They're not old of course, but they are so colorful! And right around two dollars, the price was right!
The same day in an old junk store, I found the most interesting bag of spools...they're not old either, but they are kinda neat. I've never seen the little short ones or the taller ones. Not sure what I'm going to with them, mut I'll have them if anything comes up that needs a spool.
A few days later I ran across this set of bowls in my favorite Antique store and they just had to come home with me.
I think I'll make a tray/box like this one for them to rest in.
Should I paint the bowls or not?? Haven't decided yet.
One more little thing and then I have to get to work....
A special order for a customer...I designed it especially for her. She hasn't gotten it yet and I'm a bit nervous over it. It's grungier than it looks and a bit far-fetched for my taste. She has extreme prim decor!
Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate your time!
I had promised myself that I was going to start posting again on a regular basis, but once again it's been a month and I've hardly been on the computer at all. Daily living just gets in the way sometimes. But, I do love sharing with everyone and I do appreciate all that take the time to stop by.
While you're there, be sure and check out the new banners and embroidered pillows that I'm making.
Here's a banner that I just posted today. Love how it turned out in the black and mustard colors, but can be made in your color choice! This would be so nice hanging over your fireplace.
I'm hoping to get my house and "Studio" cleaned today! I did most of the house yesterday, just need to re-organize my supplies a bit and I can get back to work. Working on lots of snowmen for a special order.
My name is Shari, the owner of Homespun and Primitives. I have been married 34+ years to my best friend, Bill. We have two daughters, Cait and Amity and two grandchildren, Alex (5) and Miss Elle (3). We also have two new kittys named Jake and Jackson. They are brothers that we rescued from a local shelter. They have filled our home with a new surge of energy and unconditional love that we haven't had in awhile. We live in Kernersville, a small North Carolina town that we love.
Sewing, painting and crafting are my passion! I would love for you to take a look at my web site to see some of my creations:
I am so proud that most of my items are handmade and designed right here in NC by me!
