Hello My Pretties!


Yeesh!  It's been 2 months since I posted last.  Shame on me.  But I have not been idle.  I helped my Aunt and Uncle dispose of the remaining contents of my Grandma's house. This property has been in the family since the Revolutionary War...the land was a grant from the Western Reserve of Connecticut,issued to war veterans to help with the growing east coast population  expand westward.  It's a long, long story .. I was the recipient of many, many lovely items. 
There is one story that I have to tell at a later date about a trunk Circa 1828. 
The above wee lass is  Luna, a design from the lovely mind of Jenn West.  I made 4 Luna sisters and the have all found homes throughout the country.  I have just a few more items for the fall and Halloween to complete and then it has to be  only Christmas on my mind.
Salt Box primitive house have found their way in to the  list of offering in the store.  Nancy DeRosa, made one and I knew I had to give it a try.  Love them. 
My dear husband Tim and I have also be cutting out silhouettes of 6ft high witches, scary cats, turkeys, moons and star, roosters and ponies to offer our patrons. 
It will be a busy  upcoming weekend,  Apple Butter Festival, Covered Bridge Festival and more...the leaves on the trees will be peaking next weekend and the glorious color is splendid right now!  This is truly the best time of the year!
Oh! I am on Face Book and I feel quite guilty for neglecting my various blogs.  I find that blogs are so much more personal and you can really get to know about a person through this medium.  But each have their charming features!

  1. Oh my gosh, Carol, you are really a firecracker!! I love love love your Luna, she is amazing (as usual)!! So glad you got your saltbox house done, I love them but in our neck of the woods I'm not sure they would sell...maybe.

    I am SO INTRIGUED about your trunk!!! Since I am into genealogy and family histories I love to hear your stories about your ancestors! I'll be this is a great one to be told! Lucky you!!

    Since our visit to Ohio I can only imagine how beautiful the fall season is there! Maybe the next time we visit (???) it will be a fall trip. How nice would that be?? I love Ohio, so sad it is SO FAR away.

    Lovely post, you always have lots to say! :)
