Primitive Decoupage Easter Eggs

Finished up another set of my Primitive Easter Eggs. These eggs are made with blown out Goose eggs. They are a good size bigger than a chicken egg. This set of 6 eggs does come with the wood excelsior to make that primitive egg display. Wooden bowl not included.

This set of prim eggs and excelsior is ready to purchase in my Rock River Stitches etsy shop!   

Lately I've been spending a lot of my time on my Red Oak Images Photography etsy shop

I've started selling my photography prints in my shop! I'm very excited about this!

In other news now that the weather has warmed up I've taken up walking. Where I walk is along the Mississippi River, I'm very fortunate to see Bald Eagles in the trees. They winter here to fish out of the Mississippi River.

How majestic are these birds!!!

Here is a shot I took of the Eagles in a tree. I've witnessed many times where there were many more birds in a tree then this. I think this winter was a record breaker for the eagle population. Both of these photos can be purchased from my Red Oak Images Photography etsy shop.

Yes...It is Warming Up!!

Yikes!! I can't believe how long it's been since my last post! Well...I'm here now.

I know like me a lot of you have been dealing with the worst winter in a very long time. Non stop snow and bitter temps. I'm so happy that the daylight hours are getting longer!! So excited we can turn our clocks again an hour. Not happy about losing an hour of sleep. That always messes up my sleep for a good week after the time change. As I type this it's a balmy 47º!! The snow is melting!! yippie!

Here are a few things I've been working on. First off I have something entirely new to offer!! How fun are these magnets!!! So perfect for that Ball Jar Collector like me! These are images of my ball jars.

Trying to add new items to my Red Oak Images Etsy Shop  I have many new photo pillow cases! Check them out with my magnets!! Coming soon...I will be adding photo prints!!

And I have this precious Primitive Mama Bunny Doll in my other etsy shop at Rock River Stitches Etsy Shop  

Trying to get more Primitive Easter items made. More coming soon!!!

Blowing in the Wind

Today the wind is a blowing! We have a wind advisory. We are getting gust up to 20 - 30 plus mph. Today reminds me a lot of March. Wish it was March, would be closer to Spring.

I have a few new goodies for you! I'm stocking up my etsy shop with my Primitive Owl Ornies. I've been out of them for some time and thought it would be a good time to work on them. 

They are all currently for sale in my ETSY SHOP!

Yesterday morning I was sitting at my computer and spied this little guy up in the tree. Looks like he found a nut that had been buried. We've had a couple of warm days in the 40's that has melted some of the snow. And I think he must of dug this little prize up for his breakfast.

That's it for now....I'm working on a couple of Bunny Coin Purses that should be ready hopefully by the end of the week!

More Primitive Valentine Goodies!

Hope you all are staying warm this week! We are having a heat wave today... It's 18º LOL. We were in the deep freeze along with the rest of the nation. I believe the coldest we had was on Monday at -14º with windchills of -41º. Schools were closed Monday and Tuesday. Absolute craziness I tell ya!!! And today we are getting a light snow. But....tomorrow it will be 38º and light rain! I'm so ready for Spring.

On to business...I have a few new Prim Valentines goodies!! Made up a couple of my Primitive Valentine Heart Barn Wood Hangers!

And made up this beautiful Heart Coin purse!
All these items are now listed in my Rock River Stitches Etsy Shop!

On Monday is was so cold that we had frost on our back door!

Just thought this was super cool! Looks like feathers!

Please remember the birds during these bitter cold days. Keep your feeders full!

Time to Relax!

Hope all my blogging friends had a joyful Christmas!! It was a quiet one for us. Glad to have all the hustle and bustle behind me. Now I can just sit, relax and do nothing if I wish!

I've had limited time to take any photos lately, but did manage to get a amazing photo of one of the deer that regularly visit my backyard a few days before Christmas. It was the morning after we had a over night snowfall.

Love the snow on her head from the night before.

Love these Red Bellied Woodpeckers that come to my feeder.

I have a big collection of Vintage Ball Glass Jars on the glass shelf in my kitchen window. This year I decided to buy some battery powered rice lights and put them in a few of my jars. I think they look spectacular at night. Like a jar of fireflies!

I will slowly get back to creating again for my Etsy Shop. I'm thinking of making a few of my coin purses for Valentines day.

New Primitive Icicle Snowman Ornies

Finished the most adorable Primitive Icicle Snowmen Ornaments yesterday. They are newly listed in my Etsy Shop now! I'm selling them in a set of 6.

I have a huge Oak Tree in our back yard that drops the most perfect acorns. I was out looking for tree branches for my owl ornies that I make and came across a ton of the acorn caps laying on the ground. So I collect a bunch and tried to think of something to make with them and thought of these ornaments! What do you say.....should I make a pattern???

Last week I made up a couple more of my Primitive Owl Ornies as I sold the very last one last week in my etsy shop.

They too are now listed in my Shop here----->Rock River Stitches

Making this post very short....Working on a Santa Doll and hope I can get him finished the end of the week!!

Oh my goodness...I can't believe how long it's been since I lasted posted on my blog.

I can tell you that I have been extremely busy creating! And it's awhile since I have made a new pattern. I've noticed that Fox's have become very popular lately and thought I would create one. As of yesterday I now have a new pattern for my Fox pincushion on Pattern Mart and in my etsy shop.

And I have the finished Fox Pincushion for sale in my Etsy Shop too.
I have a few Christmas Items newly made and for sale in my Etsy Shop.
My Primitive Crescent Moon Santa Ornies have always been a hit. They are now listed in my Etsy Shop
And these Snowman and Tree Make Do's are very popular. Get requests for these to be made every year!
I currently have 3 sets of these in my shop!!!
A few weeks ago Hubby and I visited my daughter and family in North Carolina. They live close to the Blue Ridge Mountains and it's just beautiful there in the Fall.

Lake Junaluska

Ducks at Lake Junaluska
Well that's it for now. Need to get back to sewing. Many more primitives to create.

Primitive Halloween Goodies!

I have a few new Primitive Halloween items in my Etsy Shop

We've been getting some wonderful cool fall days lately. And with that I start seeing the Buckeye Butterflies. 

And the hummingbirds are gasing up at my feeders, getting ready to fly south. The Male hummingbirds left a couple of weeks ago. I have a few females and male juveniles still around.

This one is a juvenile male

Please don't forget to check out my phone case etsy shop! I'm always adding new cases each week.
