Yee haw!! I got my surprise package in the mail from Darla over at The Prim Patch!! I won her secret giveaway!! Let me tell you... she is AWESOME! WOW!! She spoiled me with lots of goodies! I was so excited about all the wonderful goodies that I forgot to get a picture of it all together so I'll show you where I put it.
This is in my laundry room. I just finished spring cleaning in there today. It's never been decorated because my crafting area was in there until I moved it all out and put it in another room. This is all the prim I have in there... so far, but that will change. =] Karen (The Barely There Primitive Bear), see my brown Clorox bottle that I found at a yard sale years ago for a quarter? Back to Darla's goodies... the clothespins in the bowl and the spool.
The wooden clothespins are wonderfully made! They are dipped in wax and spices then covered with my favorite.. homespun! They are tied up with jute and embellished with rusty pins and bell. They are too cute sitting in the bowl I just re-did.
The spool.. oh my goodness! I was just telling another prim blog friend that I was gonna have to make me one. How on earth did you know Darla??
It's almost like Darla was reading my mind this week as I was thinking about how I wanted to decorate my laundry room. To get to the only bathroom I have on the main floor, you have to step through the laundry room. I always had my craft table piled high with projects on it and I hated every time someone would be visiting and need to use the bathroom. So I decided to move it all out and now it's fresh, clean and simple in there. But too simple... so I am going to prim it up. My laundry room decorating will be an extension of My sewing half-bath. Don't you just love it when you receive something that works perfect for what you need?! Thanks so much Darla!
My 4 yr old son was so excited about my box. He helped me open it up, unwrap everything and set it in place. These two prim wonderful goodies were in the box also!! Robbie said "Oh how beautiful!" with much excitement, it was so cute! He said he knew the perfect spot for them and this is where he put them... on the entryway bench.
Hanging on a peg hook shelf in the dining room is the temporary home for the star until I get my patriotic living room started this fall. I just love it and it's going to work perfect in there!
I adore sheep and just started collecting them this past year. This is the temporary home of the sheep because I'm going to be painting this room soon and moving things around. Isn't it just the cutest?!
I also received three wonderful smelling tarts! Darla, did you make those and what scent is it? My husband asked what I was cooking because it smelled like maple in the house and I hadn't even had them in the tart warmer yet! Lol! But they will smell wonderful in the new tart warmer my mother-in-law just bought me.
Darla, you're awesome!! =] Every single thing is perfect for me, how'd you know girl?? Love it all! Thanks so much!
