Beautiful Fall Day Here In Southern IL!!

Good Afternoon Ladies!!

It is a beautiful fall day here in Southern IL. Sunny and in the low 70's!!

Yeah Baby!! A Welcome change from all the rain and cold we have had lately.

Not much going on with me. But I just wanted to pop in and share some of the dolls I have made lately.

I got a wonderful round head doll pattern from Sweet Meadows Farm.
I absolutely love this style of doll. I have a Santa and an Raggedy Anne, I am currently working on. I'll show them off when ever I get them done.

But here are some I have finished.

First I'll start with one of the round head dolls I made for my Prim Pal in Australia, Annie.
She just got it in the mail.... so its safe to show it off!! LOL!!

Then I made a slightly different one for my shop.

Both of the above dolls were adapted from a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern.

Next are a couple of my crazy original design dolls.
Definitely only for the Prim Lover!! LOL!!

I absolutely love this next one.
She is one extreme prim baby!! LOL!!

Lastly I wanted to show off the wonderful Early Antique Coverlet I just listed on my website.
I absolutely love it!!

The other side of coverlet.

Anyone interested in it please check out my website: A Primitive Place www.aprimitiveplace.net

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!
Until next time... Have a wonderful Prim Filled day!!

Another Wonderful Swap!!

Hello Ladies!!

I wanted to share with all of you my wonderful new goodies!!
I did a swap with Connie (warmprimheart) and the fabulous goodies she sent me came in yesterday.

I loved everything she sent!!
Once again, I felt like a kid on Christmas opening my box!!

And Oh My... It smelled so yummy!! Because she had so many wonderful tarts inside!!
Below are some photos of my goodies and what I did with them.
I still have to find the perfect place for a couple of the items.
But here is what I have done so far.

Above you will notice I did a touch of whismy with the tray she sent.
I used is as a towel holder in my half bath! :)

Over at J*S*P*F I did a craft swap with Annie.
My prim pal from Australia.

I was so excited when I saw the package in the mail box.

I felt like a kid at Christmas!!!

I didn't even take it inside, I opened right there in the car at the mail box.
