Good Afternoon Prim-Pals!!
I hope everyone is having a great day.
Not much going on here in Southern IL. It is a little chilly here today, low 50's and cloudy. I shouldn't be complaining because it could be worse, at least it isn't freezing outside. But I guess those 70+ days spoiled me. The kids have been on Spring Break all last week, so I didn't get much done. They go back tomorrow.
Excuse me while I do my happy dance! LOL!!
Just kidding, we have had a good week but I just never seem to get anything done with everyone home.
The biggest news here at our home was my son started his first job!! He has been trying to get one for a couple of years but it wasn't in God's plan until now. He has been so excited. He started work at Krogers this past Tues. Here is a photo of him all dressed and ready for his first day!!
I have been working on adding some labels and making prim jars. This appears to be my newest obsession. I got some amazing prim labels from, Yankee Lane Primitives. So I have been going nuts adding them to everything I can find. Isn't funny how the little things can add so much to a display. I have added some before and after photos to show you what I mean. Take my jars seen below. They look good before but by adding prim labels to the front and filling the jars with beans and oats... Now WOW it looks Great!! Well, at least I think it does.
Just a little detail makes a big impact. Here are so before and after photos of an old whiskey jug I added a label to.
I love these labels. And the ones I have gotten from Yankee Lane Primitives, are some of the very Best I have ever seen!!
Here are just some other pictures of what I have been doing with them.
This one is my Favorite one because it has "Abe" on front!!
Another example of where a little detail can make a big impact is where I added a simple berry vine above my kitchen cabinet. The upper area above my corner kitchen cabinet is so small I couldn't fit anything in there.
And to me it always looked so blaa but I didn't know what to do with it.
Then my Mom brought me home a berry vine from one of her shopping trips. And I knew just where it should go. Yep, that was exactly what that cabinet needed.
Here are the before and after photos of the cabinet.
Now I just need more to fill in some other spots.
So that is pretty much all that I have been doing for the last few days. I need to get started on some dolls but I cant get in the mood. Really what I am in the mood to is plant flowers, mow, and work outside!!! But unfortunately it isn't that time yet. I cant wait!!! There is nothing better than coming in for the night all sweaty and dirty from working in the yard all day. I'm ready to see the flowers, smell fresh cut grass and decorate my porch!!! I keep telling myself... Hang on its almost here!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my blog!!
Hope you have Prim-Perfect Week!! Talk soon!! ~Tammy
