A Herd of Sheep!

I'd like to thank Judi for sending me this picture of her sheep collection! She ordered one of my real wool felted sheep a while back and he finally made it to his new home. She said she collected all kinds but I had no idea how many! She had her husband round them up from all areas of the house to pose for this picture. Mine is the dark one in the center front. It is fun to see my "treasures" in a new home!! Thanks again Judi!!!

OFG Spring Celebrations on Etsy!

I finally finished up some Spring creations for the Old Farmhouse House Gathering Celebration on Etsy! I think it begins February 26th but I will let you know for sure when the time comes! Lots of mice are still invading my home..... need to get a few cats made up! Anyway........... I have one in an old laddle, one in a terra cotta pot and one in a wooden box with a light. All of them have fabric flowers worked into the creation. Check out the tiny little bouquet of flowers in their hands. I will be listing the one on a pinkeep tonight but the rest need to wait until the OFG Spring Celebration begins.

My husband and I spent all day Saturday and Sunday afternoon in the woodshed! We have lots of new cupboards and chests in the works. Now all I need is a nice warm day to start painting! Until then.......................... I just listed this mini cupboard on Etsy. We used one of my favorite JH Williams print for the door and I painted it New England Red. Need to get back to work because I have lots more to finish up before hubby comes home from work!

A cure for the Winter Blues!

My mother is quite an inspiration! After raising 7 children.....I'm the oldest..... my mother and father begain a new hobby of collecting antiques. She has some beautiful antiques and primitives embracing her home to remind us of days gone by and simplicity. I am so ready for the warm summer air and sitting on her porch swing enjoying the flowers. Enjoy some of my favorite displays!

Brickhouse Crafts in PA

If you are ever in the Harrisburg area of Pennsylvania you must stop by and see Patti's cute little shop located at 1625 Route 209, Millersburg, PA 17061! Her entire inventory is from USA handmade crafters! Which includes some of my "treasures"! She and her husband Tim fixed up the old summer kitchen to their beautiful old farmhouse into this quaint little shop. Tim also makes her wooden items to paint. Here is a picture of the outside.......... look at that porch............. isn't it inviting..... makes you want to come for a visit and sit a spell?!?!?

Here are some shots of the inside. I love the blue cupboard that she uses for display. The orginal old fireplace is still there! In the Christmas corner she has an old piece of snow fence that looks so nice!

Pot of Bunnies!

Finished these up yesterday in between commercials of the Super Bowl. I've been making them for the last couple of years and they still keep selling! Not real fun to ship because of the terra cotta pot but so far no problems. I just added one pot to my Etsy shop and the others were ordered. They were made using a Sun Valley Primitives pattern. Oops.......... I forgot to put the carrot in each pot before I took the picture. Each pot comes with a carrot too.
