Check out the carvings that Helena of Snow Pond Primitives does. Is this not great or what? I'd cut my fingers off if I tried it....but she seems to know what she is doing as you can tell by her work.

" On My Path"

Look at this me it just talks of fall. It was taken by Casey of Fields of View Photography and it comes with a matte already designed in for ease of framing. You can click on the picture to see more of her work.

I am Woman ...

I love this old antique masher by Out on a Whim. She accented it with one of her prim tags! The masher is 10" tall and 3 1/2" wide.

Jethro Tall and His Doll

Yes he was named for the Rock Star, but he can be seen in the new Country Sampler Magazine page 66. Lucy of Lucy's Lazy Dayz Primitives and I are on the same page together again. We shared ads together for years on the same page and bingo this ad that Country Sampler put together has paired us up again.
Jethro and his doll which is made of Polymer clay is for sale on my site and so is the pattern for just Jethro.

Mouse Family Pineapple Luau

The whole Mouse Family at the Motherlode Toad Factory is getting ready for their annual family get together. This year they have decided to have a luau party down by the creek. The little mice have been put in charge of the fruit salad. Mel, Maynard, Max, Marigold and all their friends absolutely love pineapple. They decided to start their fruit salad with a great big, juicy, sweet pineapple. They have been munching their way in and all around the pineapple for the last hour. They have not only all become full but also stuck. They are covered inside and out with pineapple juice. They have been hollering for someone to come and get them out. It may take a while because everyone else is so busy getting the luau set up and the limbo dance started. Maybe it’s just time for a nice long but sticky afternoon nap! If this isn't the cutest thing I have ever can purchase this on my Wymzee Art Site. Just click on the picture and go there. Just $75.00 sent to you.

Hand Woven Utensil Basket

I found this great utensil basket. It's perfect for on the kitchen counter to hold wooden spoons and other utensils. These baskets are also great as a vase if you place a quart Mason jar inside. They make the perfect holder for sunflowers or zinnias for fall and she can do a custom trim color for you.

Happy Fourth of July guess what

Woke up this morning to our magazine A Time for Primitives having been updated by the server. In the process they rolled it back to last months issue and none of this month is there. Oh Joy if they didn't take a current copy of it and save it then we get to totally rebuild it again for the month of July. So if anyone visits and it looks like the same old stuff that is why.

I think it is time to start morphing this blog into Halloween and here is one of my all time favorite artists Verlene Brooks of Fantasy Folk. She has the best stories to go with the collectibles that she makes. This is Spider Mae a young, innocent-looking little witch with a fascination for spiders. You can tell Verlene has a time to work seriously at her art she lives in Boring, Oregon( seriously that's the name of her town LOL. Too funny!

Extreme Primitive Cat Doll

Well everyone knows I like cats having about 12 last count. Two indoor uppty cats and 10 barn cats (feral) but they love me I feed them! 4 of them are precious little new kitties all fluffy. Anyway, had to snag this cat for my collection. This primitive cat is by Old World Primitives.
