What a leisurely day! I had my Abbey for most of the day and I'm going to venture out to go see Dad in a little bit. I can't believe that it's 4:30 in the afternoon and I still haven't got dressed yet - but what a great feeling! It's been a very long time since I've had a day like this. I wanted to share a few of my Christmas gifts with you. Connie made me this prim, wonderful snowman head on an old rusty can. In case you ever go see Rebecca's Thyme in Pigeon Forge, Tn, Connie is her "funky Tennessee artist".
His hat has a mouse, a pinecone and a poinsetta.

Love his prim old face. The mouth is made from sticks.

He even had a snowman recipe for a tag.
She also made this old, prim doll. She has flax and an old bobbin in her pouch.
She sure is going to look great hanging from an old cupboard!

Friend Debbie brought me this prim Santa. Love his colors, more of a muted mustard. Sure looks great standing on the floor.
Dick and Mom got me this BIG, OLD butter churn. I've never seen one this big or old and I just love it. Perfect to hang an old mustard apron from.
I'm looking forward to having an evening to get my creative juices flowing and decide what handmades are going to come first for the store. Do you ever lay in bed and have your mind just swirling? I have so many ideas, just hope I can find the time to get them all put together! I want to do dolls, stitcheries, signs... Time to drag the materials back out and get moving.
I'm going to take some pics at the shop tomorrow so you can see some of the really PRIM items we found this weekend - I'm so darned excited! I can't wait to share.
Well, time to go visit Dad. Have a great evening my friends.
Until next time...
