New things that I have made!

What a process it is to making prim dolls I just finished up another candle mat and two more pumpkin dolls,

I will call them Jackie and Jillian. I have a new appreciation for doll designers. I used a sweetmeadows

farm pattern for the round doll heads, but I enlarged them. And also Jillian's dress, but the arms and legs and

bodies and Jackie's clothes I just drew myself. I sanded some areas so much that we have a few holes present

but I love that time worn look. Awhile back Pam from "Baskets n Prims" and I had a swap ,

she gave me some fabric and I used Pam's fabric to make Jackie and Jillian's clothes. Thank you Pam!

I also want to add that I recently bought some patterns from Mandy "Bittersweetfolkart Primitives"

I did the pumpkin dolls facial features similiar to her Pumpkin Jack. Check out Mandy's patterns,

she makes such awesome prims.I just recently bought one of her witches and will show her off on my blog soon.

Here they are, my first pumpkin couple

Body parts everywhere. I don't have a craft room.

don't they look better with some color added.
I mixed different colors together to get a dull orange color.

Coffee stained and hanging to dry.

My very first witches hat, I just made up the pattern, my little candy corn piece for Jillian's necklace and my first every pumpkin.

I sanded and grunged the dolls, for the time worn look.

I put so much vanilla and cinnamon on them that they sure smell yummy. He He

  Pumpkin Jillian!!!

Pumpkin Jackie! I added a tea light to the pumpkin that Jackie is holding.

My newest candle mat stitchery.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
