Slow down and enjoy life….


It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast -

you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.

Hi All!

Well, I can’t believe it has been nearly three weeks since I posted.


What have been up to???

Well, I have been working on my ornaments for Amy and Marie’s swaps.

I got them all finished up and mailed out.

I’m so excited to see what everyone made.

I will be sure to share what I made and received once I give everyone time to get theirs in.

I don't want to ruin anyone's surprise by sharing my ornie creations too soon.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

I have actually been spending most of my free time in my sewing room.

Mom and I are opening a booth at a local crafts and antiques shop.

I’m really excited!

We haven't done anything like this in YEARS!~

I have been trying to get started on making some things for it.

I have made a bunch of extra ornies for the booth, like the ones I mentioned above.

I also made this prim clown bear…

APP ~Tammy

I drew his pattern up myself.  First time making this body style.

I see some tweaking I need to do next time, but I still think he turned out kind of cute.

APP ~Tammy


I used a burlap sack for his body and vintage red and white fabric for the accents.

Of course, everything has been aged for a prim appearance.

I made this large size church doll.

I loved the way she turned out.

APP ~Tammy

I used all vintage fabrics for her and her clothing.

All Grubbed up to prim perfection. ;)

I even used a piece of an old sugar sack for her bonnet.

I made a few more burlap pillows.

And lastly, a primitive snowman doll, adapted from a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern.

I know, I still need much more to a fill a booth, so hopefully I can stay in the creating mood.

Luckily, I do have a little bit of time before the shop is open and ready for business…

So wish me luck!   I’m going to need it.  :)


~Just Something Sweet To Share ~


Awhile back we were visiting my Mom and little Lucy was trying so desperately to see outside, so my daughter decided to help her out.

APP ~Tammy


She looked so sweet and she sat there forever just watching the cars go by. :)

Oh it must be nice to get excited over something so simple.

APP ~Tammy

One final thought before signing off….

Anyone out there watching the new show called, “Nashville”  ???

APP ~Tammy

I’m Loving It!!!

But I am such a Soap Gal. This new show is right up my alley.

So much soapy goodness and there has only been two episodes.


Well, That’s it for me for now.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take Care and Talk Soon…

Such neat creations Tammy. It is neat your mom and you can open a booth together. My daughter and I had an antique booth together a few years ago until my husband got sick and I had to quit. It is Mother/Daughter time well spent. Waiting to see your ornies

Kendra said...

So glad to see you are still crafting. Your bears and burlap creations are always so cute! Good luck with the booth, how exciting!
