I have been crafting and doing shows for 20 plus years. I have 3 children and I love creating primitive country crafts. I am married and my husband is my biggest asset to my success. But I can't forget the help my children have been through the years and still to this day. This has been a true family event. I hope you like what you see. I have made so many friends through the years. They started out as customers an are now dear friends, and that is all worth the long hours that we all put into making our creations. I say our creations, because my husband and children help in so many ways. Enjoy my pictures and posts, have a cup of coffee and some downtime to just relax...and come back soon...from my house to yours, Denise

So Much Talent Out There

Hi Everyone, just dropping you all a quick note to let you know I am still doing my thing. I am working hard on fall and winter items, really do not like spring and summer shows, but I do a few just to pay a few bills. We are having a beautiful day here in Pa. I am working on the items I will be posting in Olde Primitive Peddler on the 15th July. I am so excited to be asked to join this group of wonderful artists. We all have so much to offer, and each person is different in their own way of creating. Like my title says, there is so much talent out there in this world. I am amazed at the work I see others doing.

To keep you up to date on my wildlife zoo here in the back yard. I seen a young buck today, with his antler's just starting to appear. They were about 4 inches in length, he was shy and ran back into the woods. There were 2 doe with 2 fawns this morning running around back by the apple trees. Usually we have doe each year with twin and triplet fawns...they love the corn and old bread I throw out for the animals to enjoy. I love watching the new babies with their mothers. I never get tired of sitting on the deck and seeing the cycle of life in our back yard.

I am going to post a few of my new fall items that are listed on my etsy site. When you have time please check out my etsy shop. Here is the link.

Have a wonderful summer day, and remember when someone does something nice for you to "pay it forward"

Days turn into weeks....

Hi everyone, I don't know where the time goes..all I know is that it went a lot slower when I was a kid. Days turn into weeks in a blink of an eye, we are all so much busier than years ago. Always something to do, somewhere to go...and always things that never get done and have to be put off until another time. I don't know whether this is just because we are older that the time seems to go by faster, as children we didn't have the pressure and responsibilities we do as adults. I miss the hustle and bustle of my home when my children were younger, now it is so quiet compared to before. So in any event, I try to figure out time to get away, one day Vermont and surrounding states is my dream to drive and just sightsee...with the economy today, I am not one of the lucky ones to be able to pick up and leave for a week or two...but one day I hope to be able to go...meanwhile I do what I do best and that is make new things for other peoples homes.

It is a warm morning here, AC is running already, birds are fed, squirrels are hogging all the food as usual, the ants still find the hummingbird feeder although I put a ton of coffee grounds down on the bottom of the pole...these were said to stop ants from either getting to the feeder, and if you put them around your house, stop them from coming in...well I guess I will stop saving the grounds, as they are not doing a very good job of keeping them away from the hummingbirds food...so it will be a bit senseless to spread them around the foundation of my whole house...guess a can of ant and bug spray is in order..anyone have any suggestions how to keep the ants from getting to the feeder, I would love to know them...

Here is some of the things I have posted on my etsy, some are one of a kind..others I have multiples of...enjoy your day...from my house to yours
