Lazy Saturday Morning......

Good Morning All! I just love to spend part of my weekend, searching and shopping different primitive shops. If you click the banner above, you will find some of the most talented primitive crafters on Etsy.

After the Christmas decorations are down and put away, I like to take another look at my home, and find different ways of displaying my prim gatherings.Then of course it is a matter of finding that extra little something, that will just bring it all together. So stay in your jammies, grab a big latte, or a cup of tea, and enjoy!

Happy Friday!

As much as I love the holidays, I have never really painted alot for Valentine's Day, but I love all the wonderful bowl tucks and ornies I am seeing in blogland. Maybe that is what inspired me to do a little something at least. Anyone that has followed me for very long, knows how much I love painting on soap bars. I was in a painting challenge once where I had to use crackle medium, and I just loved how it looked, so one day I thought to myself, well I wonder if that would work on soap!

So I prepped my soap as always, and began experimenting. Now, many of my soaps go through a 7 step process, seems like allot for a bar of soap, but so worth it.I still keep them very affordable, and they have been one of my best sellers. So next time you get an idea, just play, the discoveries are what make creating fun!
 If you are in need of a quick little gift for someone, be sure to stop over at my Etsy shop and take a look at the different soaps. More soap designs are in the planning stages, so I will be adding more soon! They come wrapped in cello bags with twist ties, all ready for gift giving!

I hope you all get a moment to spend some great quality time with your familes this weekend, and till next time............Blessings to All

Cute Valentine Offering!

Hi All! It seems like ages since I have posted! I know I have been busy but I am not real sure what I got accomplished. Have been getting things organized and ready for another year of painting, so my studio is ready for me to get productive.
After getting that all organized, I did sit down and get this piece done. It is a door crown that I have painted with a Deb Richey design. So primitive, and yet with the heart on the blanket it would make a great Valentine piece to display also!
I had so much fun adding the antique buttons to the penny rug the way it turned out! 
I will be back soon with more things to show you....I have several projects in the works, so stay tuned and until the next time.......Blessings to one and all !
