Poor Fat Riley


Fat Riley started at 28lbs. 2 months now, down to 24.5. New diet from Vet will crash her down quicker. Goal is to get to 15-17lbs. POOR RILEY! And yes... she oinks.

Black Walnut Dolls... New item


I love working with black walnuts... as you can tell from that basket of black walnuts that's in nearly every item picture I've taken for almost two years! LOL!

So I had this vision last year of these little Ladies and this week I've made them come alive.

(it's just more of a candid picture shot, as you can tell I just plopped them on my prop area there)

All hand stitched, vintage and hand dyed cottons and wools... made into a prairie doll - bottle doll fashion... with of course, black walnut heads. They even have little wooden stands to make them stand up. They're all about 6 inches tall and they look SO CUTE with their full apron's and dresses just standing there.

These were my first three (in order) and I'm working on a bunch more on the craft table... As I work on each one, she'll take on a personality of her own and she'll have to tell me what kind of apron she wants, or what color shawl... and of course, the bonnet... that always determines her first impression when she goes out in public.

Some are very primitive... a couple I even used micro checked and REALLY made full aprons... I'm even working on a pure aged white one (ya ok, it's more blanc). Just having a little fun over here in Kentucky on a cold wet day...

I haven't named them yet... "Nuthead's" came to mind, but that's really not so primitive is it? Hmmmm, someone mentioned "Cupboard Tuck"... I think they look like a Primitive Thumbelina!

I'll have them up for sale when I get more finished here in the next day (or couple of).... I may even save a couple for an update or two on either The Eclectic Artisans Webshow, or The Humble Arts around the first of the month..... decisions... decisions.... ehhhh I'll think of that later. I want to go back and play dress up with my dollies!

I'm in love again.... sighhhh


I want them all!

These are Kelle Arvay's pug puppies... you know, she breeds them. You also know that it's completely unfair that she lives so far away from me. You also know that I often think of dognapping in my spare time... maybe after I hit Annie's house for Marshall, I can cruise on over to Kelle's house and grab an armfull of these. (maybe two armfulls) hehehehe

In Love with another Woman's Guy AND A GIVEAWAY!!!


I just can't deny my feelings about this guy any longer... I was minding my own business one day when out of the blue, Annie posted a picture of him in one of our 'groups' and that was it... I took one look at his picture and fell immediately!

(come on, do you really blame me?)

I understand that this Guy belongs to another Woman... I understand that I have no right... but... well... just LOOK at him! He's so wonderful I can't help myself! You can ALWAYS tell the worth of a man by his eyes... and well... you can't control your heart!

Maybe a dog napping is in order... hmmmmmmmmm



(enough of my personal love interest issues)

Tag Game that Mo is making me do!


Mo Mo Mo.... ::: shakinghead :::

Mo of Wings and Paws Primitives has "Lovingly" tagged me with this game of posting the 4th picture in your 4th folder. (at least I get to torture 4 people if I play right?)

Ok Mo... I do all folders within folders within folders LOL! So I just went with the 4th folder, then the 4th folder in that folder, then went with the 4th folder inside that folder and so on....

This is Alfie... the floppy ear bunny that my Daughter (ex Alien Teen now Princess Pita) adopted months ago. I wanted to call him Stew - with carrots and potatoes.


Now to torture 4 people... hehehehehe

Of course Sarah of The Paisley Studio Life just wouldn't be the same if I couldn't pick on her.

I think I'm going after Annie of Chickadee Primitives

Oh yes... Pam of Goldieloo Woodworks

And last but not least.... Miss Lorraine of Pie Cake Primitives

Welcome to the world Master Chase!


It's a big world and you just made it better.
Happy Birthday Master Chase!
You are a very loved little boy!

I've become a Very Proud Great Aunt today for the first time!

Master Chase was born today, weighing in at 11 pounds 2 ounces and 20.5 inches long. He's 4 weeks premature and he's on oxygen right now but so far doing ok.

His Mommy has Juvenile Diabetes so, there was tons of complications and problems... but I'm hopeful that Mommy and Master Chase will be recovering just fine (cross your fingers)

I don't have any pictures yet... but I'm promised some tomorrow.
I heard he's just gorgeous. :)

I think Master Chase is big enough to go on out and get a job... LOL

Update on The Humble Arts and.......


I've updated my page on The Humble Arts website tonight with a sweet rag doll!

She's so soft and huggable! I wish you could just pick her up through your computer screen!

But I really like her robins egg blue homespun dress. I dyed that fabric last week and I couldn't wait to use it.... This doll just yelled out to wear it!




I've also been tweeking (tweaking?) my website some... adding a few new goodies there.

I've learned that I can add a new product and do this html thing and let my customers view more pictures of that product.

So Since I love slide shows, I've been having fun with it.

This is an example of how I can get more picture's added with just a little link inside the ad that reads "Click for more Pictures".

(click on the picture below to take you to the ad)


Doesn't this stump doll look like she's holding her little stumpy arms out to give you a hug?

Hand Dyed Fabric and Sneak Peek!


This last week I took a day and hand dyed some yardages of cottons I had in my stash. I wanted some drab and soft colors to spark some creativity... I call these my lichen colors.


I decided to use the second fabric from the top of the stack to create my offering for August 1rst on The Humble Arts website.... Please feel free to visit to see the rest of what I'll be offering!
