I am a true primitive lover. I instantly fall in love with warmth and history of old primitive pieces. love to go to garage sales and auctions to look for treasures to add to our old farmhouse. I specialize in creating primitive stitcheries, seasonal and repurposed items.
Good morning. I hope you are all doing well. I had intentions of jumping right into getting my work done early today, but somewhere along the way have lost all ambition. It is cold and windy out and more rain is on the way. Ugh.....we have had enough for now. DH, along with the other farmers, need to get into the fields again. We have all of our corn in and about half of the beans. It's a good thing DH started as early as he did. Many don't have anything planted. As farmers, we are always leery of wishing for the rain to stop. Because, it might just stop for the summer. So I guess we deal with what we get.
Last weekend was our DDs' dance recital. Here they are in their jazz outfits. Alex, on the left, danced 5 different dances at all 4 performances while Emily, on the right, danced 4 different dances each time. They were tired girls by Sunday. As always, the recital was amazing and the girls did a tremendous job. All the dancers, preschool through high school definitely give it their all. Now the girls are off for the summer and can't wait to start again in the fall.
After redoing my curtains in the bedroom a couple of weeks ago. I changed a few things around here and there and wanted to share a few pics.
I finally got around to refinishing a little chair I found last summer. It didn't take too long to strip the paint...someone had started it and apparently gave up. I was going to just paint it, but liked the look of the wood with a little stain and tung oil. I'm very happy with how it turned out.
Well, I should go and get to work...I can hear the never-ending call of laundry and cleaning. Sure wish I could learn to tune all of that out. Just think how much crafting I could accomplish! Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for taking time to stop by. I truly appreciate it!!!
