Sorry I haven’t been around but I’ve been working alot more than usual and still watching the “girls” as well and well, I’ve just been so tired lately. I’ve still been checking in though reading your blogs and just drooling at all that you have been doing and making, I just don’t have the time right now to be creative or if I do have a day off I want to be outside if it’s warm. Stush and his brother Johnny have been busy cutting up all the trees around here, the biggest one was the one in the back, a 20 ft. pine tree that fell bringing up roots and all.LOL So much fire wood for next winter which I don’t want to even think about right now:D
So yesterday I dropped Samantha off at preschool, she was Munchie Monster and that’s always a good thing in the preschool world, and went to GW. Now I know you have seen these pantry boxes before and I found it in a buggy ( always look in the full buggy’s that they have out waiting to be put on the shelves) for $1.99…
When I turned it over I found this, it’s a kleenex box, I have never even heard of one made into a kleenex box have you? I was sort of disappointed but I figured I could either put it up high so you wouldn’t see it or cover the top somehow. There is a tiny label on the bottom but it’s all worn off so I can’t tell who made it, it’s very well made and seems to have been made this way right from the beginning.
I think my favorite find was a set of these rusty, brown candle holders for $1.99 each, of course I stopped at The Country Store to buy the battery candles to put in them as soon as I got home, they had new ones in they are brown and really grungey with the drippings all around the top part really like them! This one I put right beside my hoosier…
this one in the livingroom right beside my shelf above the couch, after looking at it maybe I’ll put one on each side of the shelf, who knows where they will end up:D
I always run into a friend of mine at Gw she is my sister’s age and we always stop and talk, she is by no means country and asked me what primitive was so yesterday she was there and told me that she wanted to show me something ( out of one of the buggies) she picked up one of these candleholders and said “Is this primitive?'”
I’m like “Yes”, so it looks like I have someone to look for prims for me at GW ladies:) What I didn’t get to tell her was I found the other one laying on a shelf after walking around.LOL
I also found this oval, wooden hoop, JoAnn’s doesn’t sell the wooden hoops just plastic ones so I grabbed it for .99, I like the wooden hoops better then the plastic ones to work with…if I ever get to work on anything!!!
Today we go to Chuckie Cheese for Alex’s 6th birthday party than on to her house for the adults a busy day today as usual.
I’m sure by now you have heard about the new magazine that will be available in August by APP I can’t wait, the photos are going to be fantastic with Margo from Circa 1892 Homestead taking the pictures! So we are going from not having alot of prim magazines available to at least three now and that’s always a good thing:)
I sure hope to be back sooner than a week next time, I hope you are all having a great weekend and warmer weather where ever you are:) Love you guys!!!
