Christmas Present From My Mom


Hi All Everyone!

I’m so glad you decided to stop by for a visit.

Where have I been??

Well, I would like to say off doing fun and exciting things, but yet once again, that is not the case.

In fact, I haven't been doing much of anything.

I think I have been suffering from the Winter Blues or Blahs lately, at least that is what I going to blame it on this time. :)

I've lost my mojo for the time being.

I’m sure it will come back, but until then, I’m letting myself be, well, Lazy.

I did want to jump on and share what my Mom made me for Christmas this year.

For the last couple of years she has been making my gift and I love it.

Always a wonderful surprise.

Last year was the pie safe cabinet I have in my breakfast nook.

This year…

A Primitive Place ~Tammy


A huge wooden house.

She originally made it for my porch but I think I’m going to keep it inside and finish it out like a doll house inside.

Should be fun.

But first, I must get it painted.

I’m not sure where I going to put inside though because it is so big.

Here is a photo with a coke can sitting on the porch to give you a better idea…

She really did an awesome job!!

Here are a few more photos…

I’m hoping to get started on the painting tomorrow.

I’ve never tried to paint anything like this before, so wish me luck! :)

I will be sure to show it off if when I get it done.

Take Care and I’ll be back soon to catch up, Promise!

Talk Soon,

What a wonderful treasure that your mom made for you. I can see where you get your talent doesn't fall far from the tree in your case. And what a great project to move you out of the winter blues

I love that as someone said, you can see where you got your talent. That is a beautiful gift and I know you will have so much fun. I can see you decorating it with a country farmhouse, or cabin furniture. Miniatures of all kinds are out there.
Cannot wait to see. Can it go on your hearth? Don't you have a hearth?lol
