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.
Hello. I hope you are all having a great day. I posted wayyyyyy back last fall about wanting to get some different bedroom curtains. Well, I finally did something about that. After looking everywhere it seems, I decided that plaids, checks and stripes were not for me at this time. I am really into plain, plain, plain. So with that being said, I made my own using osnaburg. I really liked this for several reasons....while I do sew, I can only really sew straight lines. I only sewed the rod pocket and just tore the rest of it to have unfinished edges. The material was way cheap so if I messed up, which I did once, it was not too big of a deal. Remember...measure twice, cut once!! They fit into my plain theme and they are light and airy for summer. I coffee-dyed them to age them and ta-dah.......curtains for only $5 per window. Told you it was cheap!! When I tire of them, I can just use the material for some other prim project. I hung them with a curtain rod although I love the look of hanging from jute. We have all new windows and trim so I couldn't bring myself to nail into it. For a tie back, I just used old wooden clothespins. I pin them back during the day for air and light and unpin at night for privacy. I just love them!!
I have also been working on a doll for my selling blog. A few years ago I had seen a breast cancer awareness doll. I made a couple and decided it was too time intensive for me. I like quick and easy. I came up with this doll and will be listing her on my selling blog. A portion of the proceeds will be set aside and donated to our local Relay for Life teams. I'm sure we all know someone affected by this terrible disease and I hope to try to help out a little bit. Stop over and check her out.
I have also been working on refinishing a little chair. I stripped and stained it over the weekend and now it just sits patiently waiting a coat of sealer. Maybe tonight?? I share when I get it finished. Well, that is all for today. Have a great rest of the day and thanks for taking time to stop by.
