Hey girls! Been missing you all! We are 2.5 weeks into school now so it's catch-up time for me. Yay! Finally...
I bought this awesome hand-painted prim pear trio from Jody over at Primgal's Primitive Palette. Jody does amazing work and I am so thrilled to finally own some of her pieces. I bought these back in the spring and I love looking at them every single day in my dining room. Thank you Jody!! If you don't know Jody or haven't visited her yet, go see her... she is a real sweetheart and you will see all her talent in her blog posts. I love them, thank you Jody!! Aren't they lovely?
My dear, sweet friend Katie and I spent a lot of time antiquing this spring and summer. She has been switching her home over to primitive this year and has down quite well, it is primtastic! =] I've been trying to get her to start blogging but not quite there yet. Anyway, I had been eyeing this sweet little Amish family for a few weeks and my dear friend Katie bought them for me for my birthday! I love them and love her too! They look great sitting on my antique school desk.
Being an old cookie cutter lover, I was beyond thrilled when I came across this cutter in the shape of our great state of Oklahoma for only 80 cents!!
I had to put some fabric behind it for the picture so you could see its shape because here it is in my bowl of cutters... it kinda gets lost in there.
You know how sometimes you start a collection not really meaning to? It just kinda happens?? Well that happened to me a lot this year, hehe! A lot of collections got started. I see graters every single time I go junking but I look for the ones that just jump out at me. I picked up this one on top to buy it and two others came with it. They each had a $2 price sticker on them but all three were wrapped with a price tag of $2 for all! So they all had to come home with me.
Kinda dark, but here is my little collection of graters.
One of my favorite things I bought this summer came from Julie at Polka Dot Pig Primitives. This link is to her blog which she hasn't updated in a few months... shame, shame girl! Lol. But she has been busy cranking out the dolls and all kinds of homemade goodness so you should check out her Facebook page instead: Polka Dot Pig Primitives. Julie was at "An Affair of the Heart" in Tulsa in July so I finally got to meet her!! It is in July and November every year at our fairgrounds. I have been trying for the past year to get there and buy one of her precious Annie's! I was so thrilled to make it this year and when I came around the corner, I knew immediately it was Julie's booth and I had never met her before. There were more than just Annie's in the booth and I had such a very hard time deciding what to buy! Julie is a very kind and beautiful person inside and out and how wonderful to finally meet a fellow blogger! Especially an extremely talented one! Annie is so adorable Julie, I love her so much! Thank you!
I plan to go see her again in November. Maybe a new tradition can be born... a new Annie from Julie every visit to AAOTH? Hmm...
Okay, it's been fun to finally catch up a little but I have lots of totes in the attic of fall goodness that I can hear calling my name so I gots to get busy! Thanks for coming by for a visit. I sure do appreciate you and your sweet comments! Now that all my kids are in school for full days, I will have time to finally catch up on blog reading and hopefully stay caught up this time. There is just so much awesomeness out there in the prim blog community that I wish I had nothing else to do but sit and soak it all up, hahaha!
Have a delightful week my dear friends~
