Winter "Solstice"

Well, I hate to say it, but winter is knocking at our door here in Ohio. The beautiful fall leaves have peaked and they are slowing making their decent downward. The air has turned crisp and cool and believe it or not, we've had a few flakes come down a couple of weeks ago. So, with that said, I thought I better get it in gear and start some winter dollies. Here is my first snowgirl of the season. Her name is Solstice. I love her toile dress with subtle layering of fabrics and just enough bling to make her shine even brighter!
Here is her link if you would like to see more!


Here is hoping the sun is shining where you are and have a Primsical Day!

Happy Monday!

At least I hope it's a happy Monday for you! The only reason I like Monday's is because Dancing with the Stars is on! LOL I admit, I am addicted to it. Unfortunately, I have to work this evening, so my main squeeze is going to record it for me. I don't have anything to list on Ebay this week, but I am working on two new projects. They both will debut next year! Luckily, I will enjoy looking at them for the next 4 months in my workroom. LOL

I was going through some old files on my computer this morning, deleting ones that were no longer important and I found something that made me smile! It was a poem that my daughter wrote in 7th grade and I forgot all about it. I had to share it with you all because I can't believe a then 12 year old wrote this and I'm very proud of my girl!

Who Are Our Future Heroes?

Our future heroes
Are the kind, the caring, and the nice
Our heroes are people who
Give old toys to the poor
Or give up time to volunteer
Heroes are kind and caring

The people who say excuse-me
Or thank-you
Are very polite and have good manners
If they carry the books and binders
At school for those with a
Broken leg or arm
Heroes help one another

Future heroes are responsible
For what they say and do
They are also
People we often look
Up to

Our heroes are the sharing and true
Who never hardly lie
And share their things with
Other people
They are the people who do work
Without wanting pay

Heroes are those who help their
Parent or guardian
Do the dishes or cut the lawn
They try hard in school
And never cheat and play by the rules

They hold fund-raisers
For a good cause
Our future heroes help the elderly
Open doors
Or cross the road
Heroes are those that try to help all ages
Learn and try new things

Those who all they want back
Is knowing they did a good deed
Future heroes need all of these qualities so why don’t you try
To be a good role model to all humanity

Thanks for stopping by and have a Primsical Day!

Fun Filled Weekend!

What a weekend my family and I had! The first leg of our journey took us to Northville, MI to the annual Ghoultide Gathering. I have been wanting to get to this gathering for the past 2 years and finally made it and it was so worth the drive! I will go back each year because the artians and atmosphere is just that good!

I met so many wonderful people and it was so great to be able to put a face with a name. Below is one of the treasures I purchased from my friend Pam Gracia of Soft in the Head. When we got there, it started raining, so I wasn't able to take many pictures. But if you go to Pam's blog, she has some great pics to share with you!

It was just a super fun day! After the show, we traveled north to Bass Pro Shops in Auburn Hills, MI. My hubby was in heaven and soon my daughter was also in heaven when we realized a huge mall was attached to the store. LOL

Four hours later, we were back in our little house ready to start the next day!

Fun Filled Weekend II

One of my most favorite places to shop, was on the second leg of our weekend journey. The Pine Tree Barn in Wooster, OH has a Williamsburg Festival the first weekend of October and this year my family and I were able to go. Williamsburg, VA is my favorite place to visit, so having this so close to home (only an hour away) was such a primsical blessing for me!

There were alot of people dressed in their best Revolutionary garb and

some were just taking a break from all the action!

This one makes me so thankful for my gas stove! LOL

This looks like I caught them in the middle of a heated debate, but looks can be deceiving!

This is one place that I will go back to again and again. Besides the outside activities, the restaurant was booming as well as their primitive store. Here is their link if you would like to see more!


I did buy some great wool from one of the outside vendors that I hope to use on an upcoming project. Also found some kewl, tin clip candleholders.

Thanks for sharing my day with me!
