I had some down time today, and I started another project. I started thumbing thrue my old subscription of "Somerset Life"

If you get the you recall "The Magic of Fairies" By Dawn Edmonson? Such a sweet idea. I thought I'd give it a try.It's always fun to try something new, right?

My fairie is very hard to see due to my camera that needs to be thrown at the wall. Ughhh! My plan is to do more, so I'll share more another time. I have to get to the laundry and the farm animals now. Hope everyone out there in Blogland has a wonderful weekend. I think my bf is taking me out tonight :) no kids this weekend! what a miracle.

I'm putting the gritty Jane tutorials to use now that the Holidays are behind us. :) (wooh hoo) Here's my version of the Gritty Doll. lol  Jane is the best, I was having problems with my classroom and she got right to fixing it.

While I worked on this dollie tonight, just jake and I here so the house is quiet, Jake (my son) thought he'd give one of our cats a bath. We all know how much cat's love water... right? Well, he pulled it off! The poor kitty is lick, lick, licking himself.  Here's my son and his best friend Alex:  a.k.a. Allie Boo

AND last but not least, I thought I throw in a couple of pics of our trip to Chicago just before Christmas. Jimmy and I took Cassidy (My youngest daughter) there as part of her Christmas present to see the Broadway play...."In The Heights" She had never been to Chicago so she was thrilled with the BIG city, buildings, shopping, Rain Forest Cafe, Fancey Italian Resturants, ( she called it) The elavators in our Hotel, The Show it's self and The Sears Tower. Jimmy and I had to laugh at her a little. She was happy and cute. We take for granted everthing we see that her little eyes had never laid on before. Here she is in the new glass box that hangs over the side of the tower. It was a little bit freekie to say the least. :)

Boy it's amazing how out of practice I have become. I kinda like this piece but I know I can do much much better.'s what I did tonight. I'm really going to push myself to at least my old standard of Prim/Folk Art Dollie making. I hope all is good for all of you Bloggers out there!

Happy as a child in a candy shop~

~I will NOT let winter get me down.... least I'm trying not too....

 I sold a few of my Mohair bears on Etsy and E~bay so I had some money to play with, gotta love that, right?

 So a Etsy shopping I went and have started a few new hobbies that I have been wanting to try.

I love opening the mail box to packages and have the mail man come to the door with goodies or should I say "The Goods"

Here are the wonderful 1860's German Frozen Charlottes~ Simply Love them!

and a creation of one turned into this.....

next is the bird assemblage I couldnt wait to put together.... He's a creepy kind-of-cool.
You cannot see a lot of the detail, sorry!

and the newest Mohair, I made him from my own Original pattern, he is a sweet faced chunky, weighted guy with a sort of goofy look. I'm thinking a face only a mother or creator could

OH, I wanted to add.....When boredom hit the other day I came across a blog that I fell in love with, This ladie has the sweetest house. If you have not been to her Blog you should check it out. I'm sorry I dont know how to add the links yet but hopefully you can figure it out! :)
Here's the blog.... taylors*farmhouse*attic
