Mice in Baby Shoes and My Swap from Bee Charmer Primitives!

I've been working on a bunch of mice and finally finished them up and started tucking them into anything I can find. I scoured some antique shops for baby shoes and lucked out one day finding all these. Two are in old jello molds and one is in an old strainer. I used real dried flowers in all of them............ even the little daisies are real drieds.

This is a wonderful sign I received from Bee Charmer Primitives in a Spring swap that I participated in with my Etsy team OFG! I just love it and it looks great hanging in my mudroom!

Tobacco Cloth Covers!

Last week I received the Tobacco Cloth that I had ordered and it has been setting here calling my name! I had to take a break from mice and do something with it! My crocks are getting a new look. It makes a great cover for just about anything. I also put some over an Atlas Special Mason jar which I filled with spanish moss, orange spice scented rosehips, orange slices, pods and a mini chick candy mold.

This jar is an old blue Ball Perfect Mason jar that I filled with a bunch of Sweet Annie, Broom Corn, wild berries and a stubby prim candle all tied together with a piece of the tobacco cloth. I did add some spanish moss to the bottom of the jar to kind of hold it all in place.

I also finished up some "Piggy's which I've been working on. I used a pattern by Kentucky Primitives to create this cute little guy. I did get one listed in my Etsy Shop !

OFG Spring & Easter Celebrations!!!

The Spring Celebration is under can find my shop here and to do a search of all the OFGSC creations just type OFGSC into the search bar........... the Easter Celebration is almost ready to begin! Here are a few things I've been working on for Easter. The first is Carrotbottom Farms Rabbit which I created using a pattern by Sassafras Hill Primitives and the other rabbit is Snickerdy Rabbit Doll created with a pattern from Veenas Folk Art Primitive Designs. The Pinkeeps were designed by Bird In the Hand Primitives and I used some wonderful reproduction fabric designs from the Civil War Era! I've attached a nice antique Easter graphic to create the tags.

Snickerdy hold a bag of fabric painted flowers and Carrotbottom holds a fabric vintage graphic bag.
