With the new year approaching, I am thinking of new creations and fun things to create. I want to focus on the simple things and my new dolls will reflect that. I am working on new designs and fresh ideas but as always, they will reflect the past. Hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season!!! See ya all very soon!!!

Well, I would love to be in a magazine, or publish my own book that is one of my dreams some day... To have an amazing look book of my own, patterns to share, and lovely pictures to gaze upon. I don't know who to contact, or beg, but maybe just maybe someday.... A girl can dream can't she??
Ok, let me refrase this statement...I would love to be in Country Sampler Mag. I have been in Mercantile Gatherings, and yes I am greatful. I just think my tastes have changed as far as my style and how I decorate. The issue in the Merc, was a great one, I just wish I would have put more of my primitive works in it. I could go on and on, but I will stop now.

So it's been pretty stinkin' hot here, but I am a die hard when it comes to finishing something I really want done, so I sweated it out in my garage and here it is... pretty cool!!! Now the other thing is, the lamp, was $5 and ugly brass until I painted it with textured paint, then flat black....Love it!!! Now off to my cool sewing room to finish up and start some goods for my up coming fall show...details coming soon.

Ok, in my last post I mentioned I bought a dry sink for $15. So here it is... I am scraping it off and it looks as if someone painted over a red and black crackle finish. Not my cup of tea, would have been 10 years ago, but my taste has changed drastically. So I am thinking, a milk paint in dove grey?? Oh, and the knobs are going to be skinny shaker style. Pretty good bargain don't ya think??

I just felt like posting about one of my favorite times of year. Fall, is wonderful, it's smells, colors, and sounds. My family and I would go to old engine show around Sept. and I can just remember all of the goodness of it. Just a little shout out to Fall!!!
Back from my trip, and I hit the jack pot including a dry sink for $15.00!!! I am working on it as we speak, along with all of my other goodes I purchased. I will get a picture up later today so you can see it all.

Well, this bathroom was a challenge and I am still not done. I still need an over the toilet storage unit, but, it has to be prim... and that is not easy to find. So I forsee myself making my own, or doctoring one up. I did the "Baths 5 cents" sign, and my sweet hubby made the mirror, I used pumpkin milk paint for the dry finish. Suprizingly, it washes and wipes off great!! I did the waynescot myself, a cheap way, by using 1 x 4s evenly spaced and then just painted it all out. The color on top is just plain antique white, (which I am going to do a fresh coat all over my house), it just gives a clean contrast to all the chipping paint I have around here:) I will try and get more pics soon, I am working on just the right medicine cabinet, so hopefully I will be done soon... Just thought you might get inspired.

I love Americana!!! I love this time of year, digging out the olde flags and colors of the red white and blue. I want to sew some goodes for the season. Hope you stay tuned, this series will be going for awhile, because I have so many things going through my mind.
