What's New Wednesday!

Hey Blogging Friends! Is everyone surviving this incredible heat wave? I have really missed being outside, but it is just a little too hot for I have been staying cool and creating some new items for my Etsy shop.
I found these small cutting boards at my local Dollar store about three years ago, and every once in awhile I find the perfect design for them. This one features a design by Marie of Marie 's Country Woodcrafts
I have several of Marie's designs as I love the simplicity of them. Please visit Marie's selling blog to see the many designs she has to offer.....such cute and primitive ideas!
These small cutting boards have been wonderful for filling gift baskets during the holidays, or as a quick and easy hostess gift.....make up a batch of cookes, add the cutting board, and you have a wonderful gift for someone.

It wouldn't be Fall without a new pumpkin soap to add to your Fall decorating. I love the way this pops against the black background. I did one in pumpkin, and also a white one, they can both be found at my Etsy shop.....Primgals Primitive Palette

Now this was a true pleasure to paint. This is a new design from Terrye French. All four seasons are represented on this paper mache tissue box. Lots of detail with each scene, and would make a wonderful gift for those hard to buy for folks at holiday time.

I have so many ideas running around in my head today.....and I just can't wait to get started on some of them. It is such a busy time for artists of all kinds this time a year, as we try to spend time with our familys, keep up with the outdoor activities, and start producing for our Fall lineups and shows. I have set so many goals for is the only way I can stay on track. So a little of this and a little of that, and hopefully it will all get done!
Wishing each and everyone one of you a wonderful day! I can't tell you often enough what your comments, support, and friendship mean to me. I swear I have the best followers anyone could ever want. So stay cool, get creative, and I will see you again soon!

Isn't this Creative?

We are having a Kitchen Swap on my Old Farmhouse Gathering Team on Etsy. Our instructions were to include a vintage kitchen utencil, a handmade piece, and three recipe cards.
Well I was lucky enough for Becky of wvluckygirl's Primitive Store to draw my name!

Not only did I recieve the adorable cheese grater along with the homespun towel....(she even stitched my name on it...:)  but Becky also sent me three wonderful recipes, along with three of her delicicious home made jellies!
Thanks again Becky it was such fun having you as a swap partner!

Please be sure to drop into Becky's shop on Etsy. There you will find pillows,stitcheries,candles,
grungy dolls, and hang tags. Becky also welcomes custom orders, just drop her a note and she would love to work with you!

Here is just a sampling of the many decorative tags Becky has to offer. These are her vintage line, but she has several other sets to choose from. I adore her prim ones!

What a neat little stitchery to remind us of the important things in life. Love this!

Like many of us Becky is preparing her shop for the Fall season. She will be adding more items soon so be sure to pop in and see what she has to offer!

I hope you all have a terrific Monday.........Blessings To All!
