Cute primitive shamrocks are available now in my eBay store... eventually they will be on Etsy and my website at www.country-road-primitives.com. Are you ready for March? I can't wait to see the daffodils blooming :) They are popping up now...
I love making these... they are made from vintage cutter quilts. I added some cheese cloth and rusty pin and bells to each of them. The stained hang tag is hand stamped. My friend Deanna gave me a set of letter stamps and I LOVE THEM! I use them for almost all of my tags. I have a couple of heart stamps and star stamps, but the letter stamps are by far, my favorite. Deanna, thank you again for your thoughtfulness :) You can find these eggs in my eBay store and eventually on Etsy, and on my website at www.country-road-primitives.com. Thank you so much for stopping by! I have been so busy spring cleaning and crafting that I have not had much time to blog... Stay warm and be happy!

I love hearts! I made alot of them for Valetine's Day and am still working on some that I didn't have time to finish. Gingham is so pretty and this material is perfect for hearts and bowl fillers. I love the touch of cheesecloth and sweet annie on these... so prim! These can be found on my website at www.country-road-primitives.com, in my Etsy shop and my eBay store at some point this afternoon :) Thanks for popping in and I hope you have a touch of spring in your life today!
As I sit here and look outside, the wind is howling and the snow/ice is falling and blowing in all directions. I must go out and check my parcels on the porch that are awaiting carrier pickup. I took a picture of the tulips grunged. I didn't grunge heavily, but just enough for that prim touch :)
I am going to go start the woodstove now. The temperature was 40 this morning at 6:30 at the bus stop and now they are much cooler, especially with the wind blowing...

Happy Valentine's Day!! Hubby got me this cute little guy that's ears pop up throughout the song "Shout" :) I also received these
He bought each of the girls their own gifts as well... Valentine's Day is a fun holiday for us... It isn't that expensive and we get nice, fun, thoughtful gifts.
I still have heart bowl fillers left in my eBay store, website at www.country-road-primitives.com and in my Etsy shop.
I hope you all had a special day :) Thank you for popping in... xox

School was on time today and we were shocked, until we drove to the bus stop and sw the roads were clear. We got about 3" of snow last night. It was so pretty falling in the light that it almost looked fake. I took that picture from our back porch this morning and the one of the front yard.
After the sun started shining, I grabbed my camera again...
The best snows for us come in February and March. The orginal forecast for our 3" was 1 foot, but we'll take the few inches as it is better than none and so good for our wells. This is the best kind of snow... pretty to look at and the roads are heated enough and still treated that the snow melts off of them.
