I need a clone or more hours in the day..My goodies from fellow crafters..

So, what has happened since I last posted?   Last Friday we were closed here at work.  Went to my bosses son's funeral.  It was a very nice funeral and very touching..  I had such a headache after though from all my sniffling.  Saturday my daughter and I went to a small vintage show at someone's beautiful house...  They just set up a bunch of tents and booths in the front yard and made a show out of it..  There weren't alot of booths but we always seem to manage to find someting we can't live without.  I got a yellow enamelware pot with a lid for $9 and there was another one in the same show going for $22 so I felt very lucky to have gotten it...  I also got a tea bag holder that is metal and rusting for $2..  Breanna bought a really cute big basket for $12.  Later we headed to the Spokane County Fair they have every year.. It was so darn hot outside that we barely lasted a couple hours then headed home. 

Sunday we got up early and starting making our snacks that we were going to have during football.  Let's see,,, my hubby made southwest egg rolls and I made a mexican layered dip, chili, cucumbers and onions in vinegar.  My hubby also decided he was going to make Pina Colada's.. Boy were those yummy and went down really easy... teehee...  Breanna and her boyfriend came over in their Seahawks colors and clothing and watched football with us.. I did get some goodies stuffed while watching football but that was it..  Decided no crafting on Sundays so can spend the day with the fam...Even though the Seahawks lost,,, errrrrr..  we had a very nice day

The week so far hasnt been too bad..  Bre did have some thieves steal some things from their backyard on Tuesday morning really early... They have only been in the house a couple months and already this is happening.  We gave them a patio set where the chairs were bar stool height...  The creeps got away with 3 of the chairs and the stool that goes behind the patio set, all the candles and holders we gave them for their set and back yard and Vince's sister's bike...  Said it looked like they were trying to take the patio table too which is quite a big table but must have gotten spooked... Vince went and talked to the neighbors and one said she saw a white truck parked in front of her house hauling furniture away but thought was her other neighbor that had been moving out...  Wow.. how ballsy..  almost in front of their house and walk from the front yard in between both of their houses to steal stuff.. and in the process the creeps put a nasty deep scratch on Bre's car...  The kids couldnt hear cuz they have an air conditioner in their window that is pretty noisy... They took that out of course.. I was just hoping the thieves weren't coming back for the rest of the set...  This just makes me sick to my stomach..  Such low lifes.. Get your own job, your own life and your own stuff...  ugh!!!  Every time I talk about it I get more worked up so let's move onto something else.. teehee...

I have had the hardest time getting all these ornies / tucks / bowl fillers completed... why are they taking me so darn long??  Geesh!!!  Here are a couple of the Gingers and Bats I have finished.

You can find the above goodies and others on my Tina's Primitive Attic Facebook page.

I need to step it up as I have a gal asking me for some goodies and she is thinking she wants 6 of each...  oh boy...  I need two of me, more hours in the day or something.. haha...

Now, I want to share some goodies I have purchased from a couple of great gals...  I am finally the lucky owner of one of Lecia's Bonnets..  omgosh.. don't you just love the color and the print of the fabric..  Reminds me of civil war fabric.. Soooo Love it!!!  Can't thank you enough Lecia for making it for me.

and for my little tree that I keep up all year round in my kitchen...  I asked Rachel at Somewhere in the Middle if she could make me some gingers and stars and look what she made me.... 

Omgosh they are so cute..  Rachel made the gingers and the red and white stars.  I already had the little wooden stars with rusty stars in the center of them.  I bought them at a craft show but she never did the show again and I needed some more goodies for my tree that were more prim that what I had on there...  I couldn't be happier but I might get a few more of them to hang on my little tree...  Thanks so much Rachel!!

Well, I guess that is it for posting today...  Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to read my little blog...  Hugs, Tina

I LOVE your new bowl fillers ~ hope you can find a system to make them quicker because I have a feeling they are going to be really popular! so very cute!!
I love the ornies on your tree! They look great! Glad you still like them! I love your new bonnet ~ she makes the most amazing bonnets ever!! Hope you have a great day!
