Good morning everyone!! well I have the crud that everyone in america has..the dreaded cold..think its sinuses..that twice now in the last 3 months..but I won't let it stop me from getting stuff done around here..I made this for my friend Sarah..I gave you a sneek peek yesterday..she is huge 32 inches huge and is rag stuffed..I painted her a warm white and added all the wonderful details to her..this is from the pattern by bittersweet folkart..I changed her up quite a bit..but I love her and know Sarah will too
she has the sweetest exprssion to her face and look at those long eyelashes..all the better to get a Mr. Winterberry..she has a little rusty wire holding up that twig star..
she is also holding a vintage candy cane..
my amazon packages came yesterday..so got part of hubbys christmas and some stuff for me too..we watched the christmas carol for the first time last night..it is our favorite so far..we loved the animation..and if you haven't seen it you need too..this would be great to see in 3-D...
I also picked up two books to read this winter when I can actually sit down and relax..(like that will happen)..I love the old quilt on the basket..I just love that look.;)
my friend Kimmy made me my christmas purse years ago and I almost forgot it this year..so I will be sporting this for a week..I love this purse and I get so many compliments on it...
here is a picture of my smudge pot..I was on "a primitive homesteads" blog the other day and noticed she has one too and I learned what they were called and she put lights in hers to look like it is working..I loved her idea to put lights in it..so I took my strand of 20 yellow silcone dipped lights and put them inside..I love this..and this wil be staying put in our bedroom from now on..This poor pot has seen better days though..it has been on the porch for years now..:0 ) but aI do love me a good prim piece.You can see Laras smudge pot..click on the link above..;)genious Lara..
it really does look like a fire is burning..love the ambeiance of this.;)
Well I was in sewers heaven yesterday..I finished up Sarahs doll and made 2 more..one is for a gift so can show it..and this one is on my etsy site..waiting for his adoption..I changed this up too..his body is cedar chipped stuffed..his hat is rag stuffed..and he is primmed to perfection..
