A little chicken  

Posted by: Crystal Cord in , , , , , , ,

Well, I finished some new goodies over the weekend and got a couple of them listed yesterday. I feel like I'm so behind...Anyways, Ms. Chicken Little made her debut today! She's a little different than my other birds..She has a cute little dress and fabric legs. And for Halloween I finished up Wicked Wanda and her broomstick. I'm really pleased at how she came out and the first of the Christmas ornaments. Sam the snowman. (pics coming soon!) :) Look for a large version of Sam coming in September.

Have a great night I'm off for some much needed sleep!♥

Tattle Tale.....  

Posted by: Crystal Cord in , , , , , , , ,

growing up I wasn't much of a tattle tale, I left that job up to my little sis Kelly, She was the master of telling on you......But, Since I learned from the master I'm going to tattle on two wonderful shops on etsy from the Old Farmhouse gathering team full of prim goodies... First is....

Kit Kat Crafts 

She's a wonderful painter and I just love her goodies!! She has Birdhouses & Plaques for every room in the house....Even the front porch!
I think this one is my favorite.....I can see it hanging on my front porch welcoming visitors..

I don't know I like this one too. I love the little doorknob. What can you hang on it??? I can think of a few things!
Oh, no....I love this too....I guess you'll have to visit her shop... Kit Kat Crafts

I also found a wonderful little shop full of wickedly cute dolls.....

The Night Owl Studio 

She has the most wonderful dolls! But, I must say my favorite is......

How can you resist that face??? So sweet and detailed....I love the button eyes. He just makes me grin!

You all know I love me a pumpkin doll! Well I found one.....

She's a little steam punk beauty. Her dress is just awesome! I love her little hat! Someone will be very lucky to add her to there collection! 

Hop on over and visit these great dolls  @ The Night Owl Studio

Well, atleast this weekend I did. All my new goodies are in one form or another bats. They are all just a little quirky. I also finished up that clown...He was really hard to do since I could only work on him when Paige was assleep. Now he's locked up in a box waiting patiently for some one to adopt him. He'll be listed on Lemon Poppy seeds Halloween Shoppes later today! Here's a little sneaky peek.....

He's a Halloween Clown! I'm not sure of his name yet.....Paige's thought's Creepy little dude. LOL
I think he's adorable!

On to the bat's.....
                                          Clyde is just a ball full of fun!
Kavida is just the cutest little vampire bat. She was so much fun.....but, there will only be this one..she will have a  sister and a couple wicked cousins.
Halloween wouldn't be complete without candy corn! Even little crows eat to much of it! This is what happens when you eat too much!

Have a great day! ♥

Well this weekend just flew by. We redid the bathroom on Sunday. We moved here 7 months ago and I couldn't take very much more of the drab grey in there. The shower/tub, floors, toilet, were new when we moved in So, On a small budget and a little craftiness. I have the bathroom I always wanted. Minus the vanity but hey, it gives me a reason for the flea market. :) the great part is I did it with about $70.00, stuff I had laying around and "found" treasures and goodwill finds, and of course the flea market.

The most expensive thing was the paint and supplies......You would think it was this light.....

 Nope $5.00 Brand new in the box from the goodwill. Great find I must say!
I trimmed out the mirror with some trim we had in the garage...The pump and bird was gifts from my mom....okay the pump I had to beg for.....But, she loves me so, I got it!!! :) Love you Mommy!

I painted the vanity white it was a wood one and changed the handles. I still need to rough it up a bit. But, I want a new top with the bowl thing. But, I like using found things and I just haven't found it yet! LOL
My favorite part....I found the old window and a wooden screen door when they remodeled a house here in town the lady gave them to me for free she was so happy to see them go. For some reason I have a bunch of sets of curtains so I tied a set with a ball jar lid tieback. I Had all the other stuff just waiting for me to use.
Mrs. Tomato Bisque is one of my dolls that I make myself each year. I love her! She is the inspiration for this room. Down to the paint color, Late Summer Tomato I'm in the process of making a new item for that shelf.
 I want to give a shout out to the lady at the flea market in greenwood on us 31! I love my hand made shower curtain....I wish I knew who you were. But if you are in Greenwood. Stop in She is in the front past the registers. It is the cutest eyelet fabric shower curtain it came with the plastic liner for $5.00. She should ask for more money! She also had hankey's and wool candle mats. I also grabbed some of those! ♥

Anyway, I love my new bathroom! Thanks for taking a tour with me. Have a wonderful week!
