That is what my life has felt like lately. :)

I actually even hear that little boy in my head… “Zoom Zoom”. LOL!!

I can’t believe it has been over a week since my last post.

I have been busy working on finishing up my Christmas creations and shopping.

I’m almost finished with the shopping part.  I have a few more things to pick up payday.  Then I will be done.   And I can just sit back,  and try to relax and enjoy.

You may remember my previous post when I told you all about buying one of Gen's  adorable Santa shelf sitters.

Well, he came in last week and OMGoodness! He is wonderful!!

I had him sitting on my settle, but since the photo was taken, I have moved up on the shelf behind it.  Everyone kept sitting on him and it was making me Mad!! :0

So, I moved him up to safety.

Here’s a picture…

Thank you so much, Gen!!

I absolutely love him.


I also recently did an ornie swap with Lorna.

During the Prim Pals ornie swap, she made this adorable Santa head. 

I was asking around to find out who made him and Lorna emailed me to let me know she did.  She told me she had a couple left and asked if I would be interested in a swap.

Yes, of course, I would!!

Her adorable ornie also arrived in the mail last week.

Here he is…

Thank you so much Lorna!!

I love him.


Last week, I bought two of these wonderful prim ornaments at the Rabbit Patch. One for me and One for Mom.

These were on her 1/2 price table!! Yeah! ;)


Here are a few random photos from my Kitchen and Breakfast Nook Christmas Decor.

I still need to get photos taken of these room.  Some of the close-up ones turned out okay, but the whole room shots still look bad.

I’ll try to get that done before Christmas passes.

I have two little trees in my Breakfast Nook this year.

The above one is my newest.

I'm in love with it. That is why I got carried away with the pictures of it. LOL! :)

This tree has little salt dough ornaments my daughter and I made years ago for it.

I really don’t have much else to talk about.

I’ve been Busy but Boring lately!! :)

I will end this post with a couple photos of my newest creations.

As I mentioned in the beginning of the post, I have been doing some creating lately.

I made these adorable Santa ornies.

They are my original design and pattern.

I am so proud of how they turned out.

Not the best photos.  IMO, they are even cuter in person.

I only made one of the Santa’s with legs. (above)

His little legs and feet are so small and were a pain in the bottom to get turned RSO.  ;)

So I did away with the legs and added two small rusty bells instead, attached with tiny rusty safety pins.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

Just as cute, if you ask me!! :)

Well, that’s about it for me right now.

I’ll try to make it back soon with the last of my Christmas Decor photos.

Hopefully this week will be calmer than the last.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Until Next Time….

Take Care and Prim Filled Blessings to you All!!

You decorating is awesome. It all looks so festive. I especially love all of your trees. Many of my things are still in totes and I can hear them calling my name. I need to get to them in the next couple of days. Like you, the time is just passing too quickly. Thanks for sharing your beautiful decor. Merry Christmas.

Unknown said...

Thanks so much Everyone!!

No I didn't make the garland.
It is faux and manufactured. I believe it came from Target.

Hi Tammy,

Is that a Johnston Benchworks chair? Hubby and I sat on a Settle today that is made by them and I was surprised that it was actually comfortable with the high back. Of course the first thing hubby said was, "Well you can't lay on it." I told him that is what the bed is for lol! I just wanted to get the opinion of someone who lives with their furniture before I spend the small fortune they're asking.

Tammy, everything looks wonderful. I love your Santas and your trees.

Christmas Blessings,

Hi Tammy,
Your Christmas Decorations and displays are absolutely gorgeous. Everything is so warm and beautiful. I love the Santa Ornies you made, too. You are such a talented lady. I adore your blog and enjoy my visits to it very much.

I sure do hope you can relax and enjoy the rest of the Christmas season.

The adorable Santa shelf sitter looks great on your settle, too bad you couldn't keep him there but I totally understand! No one loves our prims as much as we do. =]

Your ornaments and trees look wonderful Tammy. I love all your Christmas decor!
