This pic isn't from our trip, but I thought I'd throw it in while I was adding pictures - especially for Karen from My Colonial Home. Have you ever made penny rug valances? I made these a couple years ago for our dining room windows and I just love the look. You girls should try your hand at them!
I got this crow in the old can from Jailhouse Primitives, made by Melissa's mother. I just think he's adorable. I collect unique crows and my collection keeps growing! This will always be a treasure from my first of many visits to the Jailhouse!
This really primitive bunny was just calling out to me. It was made by Too Far Gone (I love their work). Just couldn't bear to put it in the shop. The egg is the paper mache one we did covered in cloves - sure smells yummy!
Is this tulip adorable or what? Just screams "spring". I want to make more to put in the shop, but I had to have one for me.
Now this one is for me! It is made from old red velvet and filled with sand. It is so heavy and wonderful.
These are some of my pinkeeps. I have a "thing" for the unusual, really old looking ones. I have several more that are just too big to fit in this corner cupboard.
Things were a little slow at the shop today. I taught a paper-bag scrapbook class this morning, but the afternoon DRAGGED! I have a cold, wouldn't you just know? All I wanted to do was come home and get warm. We had a rainy old spring day and the cold just went through you.
Tonight I'm going to try my hand at making a bottle doll. They look SO old when they're done. I'd like to do one for the shop and see how it goes. I'm also going to plant wheat grass in the cans that Abbey helped me paint and grub last night. I love wheat grass for your Easter table. It grows so fast and you can actually trim it. It looks so cute with some little eggs nestled inside. Might tie some grubby cheesecloth around the cans.
Well girls, if I'm going to get these things done, I guess I better get off this computer. I just enjoy reading all of your posts so much, it's almost addicting! Have a good spring evening and you southern girls pass some sunshine on up to Michigan.
Until next time...
