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)

I found another AMAZING blog give away!

Oh yeah, this one is a good one... Check out Pam from Basketprims blog.

She's giving a first and second place prize(s) away... She'll be drawing names on Friday the 13th so run on over there and enter for this GREAT give away!!!!!

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

(You all can blame Mo for this) hehehehehe
