Tuesday is here and I'll be spending most of the day in the workshop making signs, boxes and shelves. If there's any time left, I would like to work on some big, tall pumpkins and candy corn. I haven't made the 24 inch tall ones in a long time. But, we'll see. It has been getting so hot out there that I work for short periods and spend so much time running back and forth to stay cool.
Here's a few things that I've made lately. Let me know if you see something that strikes your fancy. I don't have everything on my web site, but I'll be happy to take your order via email.
This morning I'm going to share just a few pics, drink my coffee and get going on a few projects!
I used to make these potpourri jars a long time ago.... Back then, mayo came in glass jars and I used those. I had to buy jars this time. One of my customers saw one in my picture folder and loved it, so I thought why not. Also, I used a grungy tea lite instead of a candle. New idea to use embroidery... and I love the way the little star turned out...think I'll do some Christmas ornaments this way.
Another one of my new favorite things to do...grungy boards with cookies. I've done several now.
This one is not as bright in person as it looks here.
This style is available on my web site.
Love the pumpkin colored board.
This one is dark burgundy over black. Very prim!
I'll be adding this style along with a few others to my web site soon!
Another weekend is almost over and Summer is slowly slipping away. Fall is just around the corner and I still have lots of pumpkins, crows and candy corn to make for orders. Anybody else remember when folks used to decorate for Fall in September? Nowadays, folks have already started putting out their decorations. It seems a little early to me when it was 99 degrees here one day last week. I suppose if I'm making Fall goodies now, they might as well be decorating with it.
I have another daily "DEAL" at my web site. This is only good for today!
Well, I must be on a roll! LOL! I have managed to make it here 2 days in a row. We have a busy day today and I have to finish this cup of coffee and get going.
But first, I have a couple of things for you to see...
These are ny new "OLDE" LARD SCOOPS! They are so cool! Different sizes and shapes to hang from a peg or a nail would work too.
I love, love, love these! So fun to make and each one is so different! Perfect in an old wood bowl...
These turned out pretty cool too! Great tucked in a cupboard as shown with fixins'!
These are just a few of my growing list of oldies! Not all are on my web site yet, but feel free to email me with any questions!
Well, once again I have fallen so far behind on my daily duties, LOL! I'm thinkin' I need to start working "SMARTER" instead of "HARDER"...it's been well over a month since I have posted and actually I miss it...I had so many issues with my computer and my email went wonky for awhile and had to change passwords, re-open accounts and actually open new email accounts. No Fun for me, when I was already strapped for time.
But, all is well now and I have up-dated my web site with lots of new goodies and hope to get back to a semi-normal life.
Summer is definately here in NC, but everyone is talking FALL. I've already shipped so many orders of Fall goodies...pumpkins, candy corn, Signs and more.
These are so neat in person. Great to tuck in a cupboard.
This is always a Favorite!
Love, love, love this look! Faux cookies are a huge hit for me along with the grungy board.
Folks are loving these grungy pumpkins! They come in black and a wonderful rusty/orane color. All grubbied up, of course.
This one is huge-about 22 inches across. Perfect fit for a mantle or long shelf.
I have a new deal of the day on my web site! FINALLY!!!
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!
