Awesome Mail Day !!!

Well gals I am back from Virginia and have lots to tell you all about our trip, but I will get to that tomorrow. First I want to say a great big thank you to Marie over at Primitives by Olde Lady Morgan. I has sent her a box of wool blends that I couldnt use in hooking and she had asked me what I wanted in return....I had said I would love one of her dammit dolls for a friend who has been ill and maybe a pinkeep or some bowl fillers...Did you catch the OR in there ??? Well if you know Marie , then you know she doesnt "do" anything in a small way....Look at all the wonderful goodies she sent me ....
Can you believe she sent me 2 of the dammit for my friend and one for me to keep (too sweet) and of course she sent 2 different pinkkeeps too...I just LOVE both of them...and she even filled them with vintage sharps and pins !!!

And look at these awesome grungy star bowl fillers....they are huge and look so great in my wooden bowl I just got from my friend Gloria...remember the pics from her awhile back ? Aren't these stars just to die for ????

Oh and I forgot to take pics of the 3 Folk/Prim magazines she sent me too...I am resisting the urge to just throw responsibility to the wind and just curl up for the next several hours and pour over these lovelies...cant wait to see Marie's items in here too !!!! But, I MUST get all my orders filled first, before I have any more fun !!! So I want to say a BIG, BIG thank you to Old Lady Morgan for another wonderful swap...she is a great friend and has spoiled me many times over. I will definatley be sending her out another box of goodies...I hardly think my box of fabric was equal to all the loevly things she made just for me. If you ever get a chance to swap with her, you will be happy you did but in the mean time, you should RUN over to her blog, and check out all the wonderful things she has for sale !!!

Before I go  did want to show you all a picture of a great find I got while I was in Virginia....I got this giant cheese box...
I put it nest to my 4 gallon crock to show how large it is...I absolutely love it. I have never seen a cheese box that was this big and guess what ? I got it for just $9.50...can you believe it ? I saw one in the very next shop for 3 times that much. I dont really like the color...anyone know how I can know if its original ? I would hate to ruin its value, but I really dont like the color at all...I could probably get by with just adding a little stain to tone it down but I would like to re-paint it....What do you gals think I should do ? I have lessened the value of many an item over the years and always hate it when I find that out, although if its an item I plan on keeping, then I dont care as much because I want it to match my home. Oh and did I mention that its filled with pine cones ? I really didnt want those but the lady said I had to take them too...GRRRR...

Well, I am off to finish my last few orders, finish packaging up my items for the Bee Happy swap, finish the new hooked items I made for the Primitive Handmades Mercantile update (June 15th) and then I am hitting the dye pots. I will tell you my hands are ready to fall off....I bound 6 rugs in the last 3 days and I have holes on all my fingers...yep...I have jabbed the same places so many times I think I have permanent holes, haha.

Until next time,
Grace to you,


  1. Oh no hope your fingers heal real fast. Glad to have you back from Va.


  2. Margie,

    So glad you had a great trip! Love the cheese box, I think I would sand it a bit then use say minwzx walnut gel on it to tone it down.. If that doesn't work, then paint. What a great size!
    OH My... you said so many nice things about me! I am blushing!LOL... Seriously, so glad you love all your goodies and know, there is no need to send another box!!!!!!!! Enjoy the day my friend! OLM

  3. Hi Margi, oh what prim goodies you recieved, love them all. Great cheese box,and what a price,can`t go wrong,the color,well. Blessings Francine.

  4. I just love Marie's dammit dolls. I got one to give BFF for her birthday. I know she will love it.
    I'd paint the cheese box, but that's me.
    Hugs :)

  5. Margie, I love your dolls and the grungy stars. They are about perfect for that bowl. The pin keeps are so cute, Love, love that white one. They went to a very deserving person, Always, Gloria
