I had this old beadboard panel sitting in the basement and promised myself to clean it up and paint something on it.
Well the day finally came and I decided I wanted to try my hand at painting an old trade sign.
Here are the results:

It now hangs very comfortably out in the carriage house.

Some Old and Some New Favorites

Three of my recently purchased favorites: An antique floor runner that I found for $22 was too ratty for the floor so I washed it and cut it to fit my little antique childs bed.
The Folk Art Box was made by someone out of an old fruit box. I found it at an antique store for $20.
I almost walked right past the old bonnet at the antique mall. Something made me go back to check on something I'd just looked at and behold there it was for only $10

These two sheep are two of my old favorites from "Pond Creek Primitives"
She sure made beautiful prims.

A most precious Angel ornament from my sweet Jane of "Nothing Plain By Jane"

An old Christmas post card

I consider myself very fortunate to be a part of our TDIPT group of sisters. Not only are they always there for each other, but their heart for giving is extra generous.

Today I received my Christmas swap package from Carol Roll of "Carol Roll Nostalgic Folk Art."

She is a super talented artist, whose folk art always puts a huge smile on my face.
If you are not familiar with her work it would be a worthwhile visit to her website.
The pictures just don't do her creations justice!

Thank You so very much Carol, I just love what you did for me.

Buds for life!

I just wanted to say how honored I am to know that there were and are so many men and women who risk everything so that others can have a chance at a free, safe and peaceful way of life.

Thank You Scott. My Dear Son-in Law who just last week left his family to spend yet another year away in Afghanistan.

You are the bravest person I know.

We're keeping you close at heart and sending prayers and blessings to all of our HEROES.


We LOVE YOU Scott!
