Happy Easter

Popping in today to wish my friends and family who celebrate, a very happy Easter!
May your house be filled with the blessings of the day, and hope the Easter Bunny brings you a wee bit of chocolate, too!


As you all know by now, it wouldn’t be much of a holiday at my house without a little seasonal decor. So in honor of this special day, here’s a peek at some of my spring things.


The dining room sideboard is once again filled with vintage ironstone and my favorite transferware dishes. This time, the plates are a combo of Johnson Brothers Friendly Village with some no-name pattern that I like to call “My Happy Place”. I think I would transport myself to that sweet farm house in a heartbeat if I could.


Of course I’ve managed to sneak in a few of my handmade things. Chicks in nests and Old Mother Goose, and some twine-wrapped eggs, too.


For my front entryway table, I went for a very simple and natural look.


White and green, bunnies and chickens, and a few nests, too.


A few more handmade cuties are tucked here and there.


My chocolate bunnies and vintage crepe paper eggs. My new Lori Mitchell figurine I managed to score for a song this year. My mom gave me this amazing antique wooden scoop at Christmas, and I love it for creating a little scene.


The wee bunny in the wire basket is a new guy I made this year at one of my weekly crafty play dates with the girls. The mushrooms are another project we tackled this month, too. Our first attempt at spun cotton. Hope to try that again soon.


It’s so hard to believe that Easter is here already. The year just flies by so quickly, don’t you think? Of course now I’m already thinking ahead to the next thing. I should really get started on crafting some summer things. And my sweet little missy Nik’s 20th birthday is this upcoming week. So lots to do, and lots to celebrate.

But before I move too far forward, I have one last spring bunny to share with you. A custom order I’ve been working on. From my little Easter Bunny to yours, wishing you all a very wonderful day!

Spring Preview- Fresh Produce


Hi friends, happy Wednesday! I’m back today with another sneak peek from my new spring shop goodies. These mischievous guys have been caught red-handed out in the garden, filling their pockets full of fresh produce. Naughty bunnies!


Is it spring in your neck of the woods yet? Our temperatures soared into the mid 70’s last week, but we’ve dipped way down into the gloomy chill again. Looks like March will come in like a lion this year. Even so, I’m taking down the winter snowmen this week. Time for bunnies, don’t you think?

If you’re ready for spring things, too, stay tuned for my upcoming shop opening.

Valentine Love at AudOnes Prims

** Hi, Friends! If you’re looking for my Creativation 2018- Tim Holtz Blog Hop and Give Away post, please click HERE!**

Happy Sunday, everyone! And happy Super Bowl Sunday to all the football fans out there!


It has been quite awhile since I’ve had the chance to share any of my shabby sweet fabric projects with you. The holidays and my new work schedule, and then the Creativation (CHA) show following right behind, has left little time for play…. and I sure do miss it. So I was super excited earlier this week to grab a chance to sit down at my sewing machine and whip up some soft and pretty Valentine hearts for the month of love!


There’s just something about the process of crafting things by hand that brings such a sense of happiness and joy to me. What fun it is to watch the project evolve along every little step of the way, and see that finished spark of an idea come to life. These little cuties have really been put through the ringer, and I love how they turned out. The sweet recycled fabric with the little rips and tears that perfectly meld with the aged painted, stained, and sanded finish. The paper crafting supplies brought in for the finishing touches….Distress inks for dying the fabrics and trims. Archival ink for stamping. Old favorite Hero Arts stamps for verse. Maya Road designer pins. And dies for spiral roses. Makes me smile. Hope you do, too.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your football today!

And in case you’re interested, you can find these shabby little XOXO hearts listed in my AudOnes Prims Shop. ❤ Have a great day!

2017 Halloween Haunted House Tour- The Finale

Happy Friday, friends!
And welcome to the last day of my annual Halloween Haunted House tour.
Today’s stop is the sunroom.


My sunroom is in the back corner of my house and is surrounded by two full walls of windows, letting in lots of natural light. It is, by far, my favorite spot in my house to just sit…. and as a consequence, I’ve absolutely packed the room chock full of spooks. Perfect for taking in over a nice cup of coffee.


As always, I’ve got a ton of photos to share. So you may want to grab a cup of coffee, too.
I hope you enjoy the tour!


Soon the trick or treaters will be here, and it will be time to take down the haunts for another year. But for now, I’m going to enjoy my little ghosts and goblins for as long as I can. And as last minute as it is…. I still have a few special handmade prims left in my shop, for anyone wanting to add to their collection. I’ve added a new princess ghost that you may remember, too.


Giselle the Princess Ghost is now available
HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and for the sweet comments on my Halloween tour! Wishing you all a very wonderful weekend!

2017 Halloween Haunted House Tour Kick-Off

Hello, hello Friends, and welcome to my Haunted House!
As most of you know by now, Fall is my most favorite season of the year, and October is by far my favorite month. It’s become an annual tradition around these parts to share my Halloween haunts and spooks with all of you, and today I am super excited to kick off the start of this year’s house tour. Step this way, my Pretties, and let the haunting begin!


This year I thought we’d begin in my dining room, which is always one of my favorite spots to decorate. Not only is it one of the first rooms you see when entering my house, I also love the decorating potential of all the shelves on my antique sideboard. Such a great spot to pile up lots and lots of spooks!


This year’s theme in the dining room? Skulls and bones and ghosts, in a crisp black and white color palette to match my dishes. With just a hint of pumpkin orange added to the mix.


I know most of you have toured with me many times before, so some of these scenes will have become familiar to you. But hopefully artfully rearranged for this year’s tour. I’ve taken lots of photos to share, zooming in on all the tiny details. So sit back and relax, and welcome to the tour!


I do so hope you enjoyed the beginning of the tour!  And just in case anyone is looking for a few new spooks of their own, I’ve uncovered a few extra goodies from last year while going through my bins…. like these spooky skulls and a few of their friends.
You can find them HERE in my AudOnes Prims Shop!


Until next time, hope you have a wonderful weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by!
