Tuesday Display Chain....Framed In

Happy Tuesday Blogging Friends!!

It is time once again for Misi's display chain. This weeks theme is framed in. I thought all weekend about what I would post & finally decided to show some pics of some of my framed creations.

My first framed pic is the one I love the most. Being on a budget & living in an older home has presented some challenges. We didn't know how long we were going to stay here & didn't want to invest in a kitchen redo, so I painted & antiqued our kitchen cabinets. First I had hubby frame in the cupboard doors with inexpensive trim. These are the finished cabinets.

Here is what they looked like before the transformation. We had to buy one new one to replace this one which was starting to fall apart. It works great in the garage for extra storage though.

A needle felted pumpkin pic made by a fellow crafter. She also made the pumpkins.

My very first punch needle project.

A little wool felt pumpkin pic. Made this one to sell, but couldn't part with it.

Framed piece of crazy quilt.

Christmas gift I made for my mom a couple of years ago. She had a friend make the frame.

I made this pic from an old mirror I picked up at the thrift store. I used a piece of an old quilt for the background. This sits on the fireplace at my Mom's house.

A beautiful quilt in an antique frame made by my very talented mom.

Thanks for stopping by & make sure to check out the other wonderful posts on Misi's blog. You can find her here

See ya!!

Just a Little Peak....

Hello & Happy Thursday!!

Still working on putting out all my Fall goodies. I'm in need of lots of natural goodies so I'll be putting off posting my displays until I am able to go hunting & gathering. Hopefully that will happen this weekend. Crossing my fingers for no rain.

Have a wonderful evening~Becky

Good Evening Blogging Buddies.

I've been so inspired by all the fall decorating I've been seeing here in blogland that today I dug out all my fall/Halloween goodies.

Tomorrow is my day off so I'll be cleaning & working on putting out my goodies.

I'll be sure to show some pics when I finish.

Have a wonderful evening~Becky

It's Back...The Tuesday Display Chain

Misi over at has brought back a blog favorite. It is the Tuesday display chain. This week's theme is Seasonal Peg Racks.

This is a quickie post as I am off to bed soon. I don't have my fall goodies out yet, but wanted to give the chain a whirl. I usually add small bunches of bittersweet to this peg rack, but haven't collected any yet. I added a mini white pumpkin & fall doll to this display. Little touches will soon turn into an all out redo.

And this little peg shelf is in my 1/2 bath. It sports a nice little prim cone light, a prim star pocket with candle, & a basket filled with sweet annie & some dried grasses.

Well~that's all for the evening. Make sure to head over to Misi's blog to check out all the other fabulous peg shelf displays.

Have a wonderful evening~Becky

Craft Show Pics

I'm back today & here to show you some pics from my show this weekend. But first I would like to thank all of you for the nice welcome back to blogging.

I had two big shows back to back & boy oh boy did I sell the goodies. Yippee for me!! I'm hoping this means our economy is on the rebound finally.

My first show was a 2 day show at an historic farm. I am lucky enough to be in a barn on the property. I wish I had remembered my camera for that one, but forgot it 3 days in a row. The weather was beautiful & the sales were excellent.

My show this past Saturday was closer to home. It was held on the beautiful grounds of Holy Hill. Again we were blessed with good weather & a buying crowd. Here are some pics from that day. Thought I had more, but I guess I was too busy checking out all the vendors to take many photos.

This little guy was my only purchase. Love him!! I do needle punch, but decided he was just too cute not to take home with me.

And here is my booth. I wish I could think of a nicer set up, but don't want to haul more for display than I am selling, so this will have to work.

Some Fall/Halloween goodies...

More Fall goodies...

My make do Halloween tree. I used an old metal funnel & some tree branches to hang some ornies. Love how this looked & will be using this in my home this year (if I can find somewhere to put it where it won't get knocked around.)

Pumpkin man...

Pumpkin ornie.... this one is attached to my Witchy Mouse, but I did make some to sell as ornies.

Love how these guys turned out. I should have kept them for myself. Pattern by Soft in the Head. Sold them for too little $$$~should have put a higher price on them. Oh well~they are all sold. Will be making more for me.

Wish I would have taken more pics. Maybe for the next show I'll remember.

Hope you're all having a wonderful Monday. It was my first day back to work & it was brutal. Couldn't sleep last night, so I'm a wee bit tired.

Off to see what you're all up to!!

Have a lovely evening~Becky

Busy...Busy...Busy.. & New Goodie

Happy Thursday Blogging Friends!! It sure is a hot & humid one here in Wisconsin. I've been busy trying to get some goodies finished up for my first show which is next weekend. I've been missing all of you. I've been trying to stay off the blogs~I give myself 10 minutes each day to scroll through the postings. By the time I do that, there is no time to stop in & visit any blogs. I will have lots of catching up to do. Just wanted you to all know that I am still around just not blogging.

Wanted to show you a recent purchase I made for myself. I love cross stitch & when I saw this piece by Nan of Threadworks Primitives, I just had to have it. I have admired her work for a long time & finally purchased one of her pieces. I am so glad I did. Her work is wonderful. It is hanging from my blue cupboard~the perfect spot for it!!

I will show some of my finished goodies soon!!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend~Becky
