Out in the Prairie where the wildflowers grow and the song of the birds like melody flows, there's a peace God bestows that brings joy to the soul...

out in the Prairie where the wildflowers grow.

Took a few days off to do some more thrifting and catch up on some art work. The first picture is a
Pocket Journal I made, which will go in my Etsy Shop, loved how it turned out.

Second is a very nice Purse/overnight bag I found at our local Market Street Days. The lady does such great work and uses mostly vintage fabric.

 Third is a highschool Autograph book from the 1930's (They use the phrase FORGET-ME-NOT quite often, I just love old stuff like this.

And last is this cool white Enamel Pitcher for only $3.00.
A snowy day here again in Wisconsin, but very pretty big flakes.

 Happy day to all.

Did a little thrifting today and found a neat white & red Enamel Wall holder, I can see all sorts of neat things tucked inside it, But it dosen't match my kitchen so it's going in my Etsy Shop.

Also found this Beautiful gold wired ribbon-30 yards of it and it's in new condition, and there's 2 rolls of it WOW!!! It's also going in my Etsy shop.

It was a fun outing today, could have shopped a lot longer, but my dear husband was along.
A great weekend dear friends. Smiles, Carol Mae

I was playing in my Studio today and came up with this Prairie Paper Doll. It has a real dress I made with brown twine hair and cloth hat. NOW I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH HER??? Put her in a frame? Hang her up? HELP!!!! Any idea's out there from your creative minds?  I think she needs shoes but then what?  Maybe just put her away and say I made one once Ha Ha!!

We are getting a good amount of snow here, nice day to stay put. Good tuesday evening to all. Smiles and giggles, Carol Mae

A man's art piece

WOW!!! A clock done by my husband. These are the folk's that get together to do maple syruping in the spring at our friends Sugar Shack. They have been making syrup for a lot of years.

These friends get together several times during the season and tap trees, cut wood and just have a great time. This piece of wood was cut just for doing this clock. It turned out really cool. Way to go Hubby!!!

Sweet Monday to all, Carol Mae
