Hello My Friends! I do hope you are all enjoying a fun~filled, safe, and glorious holiday weekend! We have been enjoying ourselves. It has been a simple weekend, but that is how we prefer them to be. Yesterday my dear hubby mowed the yard & wouldn't allow me to help. He insisted that I stay in my workroom ~ getting more goodies done for the Open House. Oh what a wonderful hubby he is! Today, for more fun, he took me to an auction. I do just LOVE to visit a good auction!
In my car load of treasures ~ an old oil can (to display on the front porch of the lil'house), two wooden codfish boxes with wonderful olde advertising, a candy box filled with wooden spools of silk thread, a large box of artificial flowers (they will find their place on the front door wreath!), and two pairs of feedsack~like curtains from Pier 1(they will be perfect for one of the rooms in the lil'house). Tony even bought a couple of new, in the box, computer speakers. The cost of our new treasures wasn't much ~ plus we had a good time with each other and my darling mother-in-law, Mary & sister-in-law, Linda.
The codfish boxes have sliding lids. I don't know what I will 'use' them for other than shelf~sitters.... sounds better than dust~collectors. Also inside the candy box of spools.... a skein of DMC. :)
More weekend fun has been that I have received TWO nominations for the 'Primitive Excellence Award'.
Both Sam of Gollywobbles and Sue of Rabbit Hollow Prims have been so thoughtful & kind to send the award to me. Thank you Ladies!
Rules of the award are ~ you tell who the person is you received it from and then pick 7 people to give it to and let them know.
I have so many primitive buddies ~ it will be difficult to narrow it down to seven. But here they are ~
1 ~ Ginger of Primitives by the Light of the Moon
2 ~ Marte of Boggy Creek Primitives
3 ~ Beth of The Twist Family
4 ~ Tanya of At the Honeysuckel Tree
5 ~ Julie of Plumruncreek
6 ~ Robin of Bird in the Hand Primitives
7 ~ Debbie of Simple Country Blessings
...... ok, that did take a little time, but I do enjoy visiting blogs of my buddies! :)
For now... back to punching & enjoying the weekend!
Happy craftin' my friends! Smiles, to ya.....
