Some pictures of my Christmas Decor

Hi Prim girls,
Here you will find some pictures of my Christmas decor. I'm not finished yet, the second floor, baths, kitchen and outside are pending. Since I started few weeks ago I was changing some things around the house. I am not completely sure if I will make more changes during this week. Please, give me your opinion.
Today, I was working with the recipe to make my gingerbread men.  I am using the Colleen's recipe  that Linda from Behind my red door shows in her blog.  Also, I bought all the ingredients to make my snowman faces that Kris from Simply Prim post last week.   They looks awesome!

New Santa Make Do for me

Hi Prim girls,
Today I was working in the Santa that you see in the header picture.  Few weeks ago, I posted picture of the primitive horse that I started for selling purposes, but when I finished my Santa I decide to leave it for me. I think that this pair looks awesome together. Santa's clothes are made of wool and natural batting and the horse is made of stained osnaburg, for the legs I used real wood stick from my yard.

If you are interested in a set like this,  just email me to make one for you.

Bye, Bye and see you soon,

Watcha Working on Wednesday and more

Hi girls,
 Today is "Watcha Working on Wednesday" in Leslies' blog My Country Home. Take time and go to her blog to see what other girls are participating.  During the morning, I was working with my final gift for Tammy from Home in Virginia. We are partners in the swap that Mary from Gettysburg Homestead issued for this Christmas.  Tammy if you see this post,  I will send your package tomorrow, hope you enjoy it.


Also, I want to share with you my last makeover.  These are the bowls that I found in TS last week . I already finished three of them.

Remember them before, if not,  see below....

Well, my break is finished.... and now to work with my snowman hat lamps. I hope I finished them for Friday morning and send the package to my client this week. If I finished all my chores this week, I will start my Christmas giveaway on Monday. Please, stay tune for next week.  Love Swaps, do you know if there more swaps in the blog land now? I am in "CREATIVE MODE", LOL.

Bye, bye and see you soon

TS finds

Hi prim girls, 
For several weeks, I was in various TS and GW and returned to my home with nothing in my hands. They had good items, but not in my style or not in my budget. I don't know what happen ultimately but the prices in TS and GW are too high, sometimes like pieces completely new. Do you observed the same in yours?? Well, I want to show you the my last findings. Few weeks ago, I was in the Salvation Army and founded two crocks like this (#5),  one was in mint condition for $100 and another had hair lines and cracks for $75. Do you believed those prices for a TS?, I think they are prices that I will found in an antique store but not for a TS. Well, I love the crocks but  they are above my budget.  I am waiting some weeks and returned to the store this week, and look what I founded the crock in mint condition for $25.  Now, here is it in my home.

 Also, this weekend in the GW I founded two wooden bowls for $2.00/pair. They need a prim makeover so soon, but are in good condition.

More bowls that I founded last week in other TS for $3/set. ( 5 pieces)

Old rug beater for $1.50.

This basket for 50 cents.

Wooden Santa ( in the middle) for $1, others are 50 cents ea. ( Sorry, this picture is too bright). Love the wooden Santa it looks old and is in mint condition.

This wool runner for $2.00. I think is perfect for Christmas.

Iron reindeer for $1.29.

Pineapple lamp for $2.

Bye, bye and see you soon,
