I must admit, this was like last weekend. Not much done this week!
I coffee stained my grandma's old doilies. They were just too white. I need to fix the one with spots. I used a pizza pan to put them in the oven. Ooops. I am thinking about offering the homemade goodies on my own selling page instead of eBay. I will continue to offer my flipped items on eBay.
So, here's one of my little prairie doll pouches. I planned on them to be able to hang on a peg. But as you see in the second picture, she's a lazy gal. She keeps tilting over. I need to fix that. What do you think? A wire on the back? Ribbon or lace hanger?
|Here is my attempt at crazy quilting for my pincushions.|
And finally, my apple pie for the church function last Sunday. Apple Pies are the one thing I make well. My husband is really the cook in our family! :)
|Between Goodwill and Shupp's Grove, I found some goodie to sell on eBay. Total purchase for the haul-$16.50. There are some antiques, vintage items, and handmade folk art. I will try to post them tonight! :)|
It looks like an older courting candle that someone sprayed with textured paint. It is a grey/blue with rusty areas. It would look great with berries or pumpkins in the middle. It is really deep!
|This is a wall hanging. But, it needs something. I may paint it and letter it with "Welcome". What do ya'll think?|
Goodies in the Mail...
It is a blessing to look around the house and see the works of the hands of my dear blogging friends. I feel like I can have a part of y'all over for coffee! I should arrange the things around the kitchen table and have a little tea party like when I was a kid (Okay, so that was last week. Shhhh...).
|Salmon Falls Prims- She let me pick my colors!|
|The Tin Crow- It goes with my crow shelf sitter and little crows that I also purchased from her- Sooo prim!|
|The acorns are from Angela's Prim Attic and the quilt piece I found on eBay. It is part of a Civil War quilt- prim and a teaching tool! Perfect!|
|And, my dearest purchase- A penny rug and stump doll from my dear friend, Christine! I was so excited to get a package from a kindred spirit from across the pond! I just love them! And the pillow is a creation of hers too! They are definitely treasures from a treasured friend.|
