When I'm out browsing the flea markets I always come across a booth or two with handmade primitive folk art. I love the stuff, but rarely purchase it because I know I can make similar items myself.
Last weekend was no exception.
I came across a wonderful booth all decked out in Primitive Fall Folk Art.
This time I actually got busy and made myself a few simple pieces.
I made these pumpkins from an old chenille bedspread and stained them with a mixture of strong instant coffee and vanilla nut flavoring. They have a wonderful fragrance just like the gift shop candles that smell of gourmet coffee.
The basket was a flea market find that I got for just $2 and the leaves and sunflowers are from my garden.
These were made from an old pillow case and a tattered doily.
I just love Fall.

Our trip to NC was extra special this time.
We met our first grand baby, Vera.
I love her so much!
She thinks Grandpa is pretty funny.
Mommy is so proud and happy.
And Daddy is too.
Here she is showing off her new sun hat.
We missed her the minute we left.
Visiting Vera was the best thing ever!

I'm now a grandma and I get to go to NC this weekend to see Baby Vera in person for the first time. She's so beautiful! I can't wait to meet her!!!
A death. Pappap passed away at age 98.
There was the death of a pet.
Purchasing a home.
Planning a move.
Good days and not so good ones.
This evening is quiet.
Quiet is good.
A storm blew through earlier and now a gentle rain falls.

I had a plan.
The plan was to give my spinning wheel a real work out and keep practicing until I could master it.
That was last years plan too, but life happens.
I did manage to get one day of spinning in a couple of weeks ago.
Once life gets back to normal, I'll begin again.
That's the plan anyway.
Have a great day!
