Primitive Valentine Conversation Hearts

I've been in the mood to make primitive Valentine's Day goodies. I have lots of ideas stuffed in my head and I hope that I have time to get to some of them. I was up kinda late last night trying to finish up these Primitive Ticking Valentine Conversation Hearts. I listed them on eBay this morning. If you would like to get to know them a little better, just click on the photograph to visit them.



I finished making these stars this morning and listed them as well. The pattern for the Primitive Stars is on the side bar on the right or simply visit me on Pattern Mart.



I was wondering . . . Does anyone else start their "Spring Cleaning" right after the Christmas tree is put away? One thing leads to the next and I'm standing on top of the kitchen counters wiping down the top shelves. It's insane!!!

Crazy in Colorado!! Deanna :)

Primitive Valentine Heart Make Do's

Happy New Year Everyone!!

The snow is gently falling outside and it's so pretty! There's about six inches on the front porch. Andy's itching to build a snowman tomorrow morning.

I'm sitting here enjoying a cup of coffee and a quiet house. This evening, I listed two Primitive Valentine Heart Make Do's on eBay so I thought I'd share them with you. If you would like to get to know them a little better, just click on the photograph to visit them on eBay.



I found these neat old rusty bedsprings near an abandoned homestead near our home. My intention was to take a walk in the woods to gather some pine cones and I came home with a bag of springs instead! Cool Beans!


I have old textile spools/bobbins displayed around our home and a few extra ones around to use to create make do's. I think they're just plain cool!

Our Christmas tree is still up. I really don't get a chance to enjoy the tree and all our decorations until AFTER the holidays. Yesterday, I packed away some of the larger items so we have a little more elbow room.

Thanks for stopping by!
