Goodies, goodies n more goodies:)

Hope this post finds you all doing well!
Its been so long since Ive been able to catch up with you all.
I have been so busy lately left wondering just exactly doing what?

Ive been making alot of dolls and it seems I cant keep up week to week to restock my booth. The beginning of March I was totally wiped out, in just a matter of a few days. I went in one day and the booth was stocked really well. I went back a few days later and there was all but 3 bunnies left. So its been a rush to get it stocked again!

Last Fri night we went to our first auction. It was ok, just ok! Kinda boring sitting through those box lots. I was lucky to pick up a huge crock for only $15. It has a tiny crack in it which is fine because I wanted it to hold shoes right by the kitchen door, and thats where it sits!



I also picked up a REALLY heavy REALLY old oval mirror in a wood frame. I painted the frame black and sanded the edges and am debating on taking it to the booth or not. And 2 wooden skillets that are in the process of being painted and primmed up.
Sorry, no pictures of those!!

Yesterday I received TWO packages in the mail. One I knew was coming, it was a swap Carolyn of Primitive Devotion and I had and the other was a total surprise from Linda of Simple Country Seasons. It was a good day:)

These are my goodies from Carolyn,



See my little pinkeep there? She made that just for me:) I absolutely LOVE it!!

This was also tucked into my box,


It is the neatest little egg carton. Ive been looking for something to display my eggs in for a few days now, it was like she was reading my mind!

I cant say too much more because I dont want to ruin her surprise as she hasnt received her package yet:)

This is what Linda sent me,



There is a HUGE feedsack in there, I am thinking of making myself a sawdust pillow for my bed with that. Ive already used some of the fabric to make pants for a bunny I made yesterday. I just love all that different fabric:)

So we're off to the auction again tonite and last night Jas surprised us with IMAX tickets for Alice in Wonderland Saturday afternoon, Im so excited!!!

Archie is doing VERY well. His vet visit went great, he is very healthy and weighed 3lbs 4oz. He goes back on the 26th and I wanna say hes over 5lbs now. He LOVES to eat!!! Ill get some recent pictures of him.


Heres a few new prims I finished and will be posting on my selling blog when I can find the time.








Have a great weekend!!!
