Welcome everyone to "The Prim Patch"

I have always loved the look of Prim. The last several years I've tried whatever Prim crafting projects I could find. I love workin' with wood, sewing, stitchery, really any crafts...I could work on projects all day everyday!! (If life were that easy...LOL)
I'm hoping to be able to share anything and everything Prim I can do/find with everyone.
Be sure to follow my blog to see what we can create together.

I have a few things on my blog for Sale...you can check them out here.

Watcha Workin' on Wednesday...

Good Morning Everyone!!!
I have another busy, busy day today...but I wanted to get a post in before my day started.

Here's my burlap bag I've made. I have lots of them to make for prezzies this year. Making different styles and sayings too.
I really need to find some "Sweet Annie" to put in them. So, if you have a sellin' blog and have some Sweet Annie....Please leave me a comment with your addy....so I can check it out. I know it's sold on e-bay...but I'd rather buy from my one my Prim Friends.

I forgot to tell everyone....hubby and I made...the pegboard & candle ledge...the candle is a re-do from Mod Podge...and the basket was a GW find that I re-did.

Watcha Think???

Hope Everyone has a Wonderful Primitive Day!!!

Make over Monday...

Today is a very busy,busy day for me....but I wanted to post something really quick for everyone.

These are some of my GW finds...(I have lots...I LOVE GW)
You will notice that I have the glass sundae cup in the first picture...it's the glass I used to make my sugar cone in my "Freebie Friday" post. (Don't forget to check it out)
Also, I'm sure you are saying....Darla, your nice wooden bowl doesn't look any different! Well, you are right...my son, (Ryan) asked I not "Prim" it...he wanted to use it jus' the way it was for our fruit. How can ya say no....LOL
But, I Love, Love the way my little stool and basket turned out.
Hope this gives you some inspiration...
Have a Wonderful Primitive Day!!!

Freebie Friday...

Hmmm...I'm a bit late on this post...So Sorry!!

Anyway, I found a wonderful Free Primitive Grungy Americana Star. You can find the link to the PDF file in my sidebar under "Freebies".

Here's my supplies...

I used a sugar cone I had made last week...(instead of the vase she uses). I rusted some pins, bells and wire last week too...I was able to use each of them in this project. I also made the Star and tag...cut some of my homespun and made it grungy to match everything.

Here's the finished project...

I think it turned out Great!!!
If you are lookin' for a Simple project...this would be perfect for you to try.

Hope Everyone has a Wonderful Primitive Weekend!!!

Watcha Workin' on Wednesday...

Hello Everyone!!
I jus' wanted to stop in and show everyone what I made yesterday and was able to get finished today.

My Little Table Bench was made from a tutorial that I found on Char's blog. If you haven't checked her blog out....you should head right over there and see all the wonderful info she has. Def one of my favorite blogs to follow.
I made my Shutter and Star from ideas from different things around my house.

Hopefully this will give ya a few ideas on some easy simple things you can make yourself.

Watcha Think???
Keep in mind I still need to add a few things to the star and shutter to "Prim" them up.

Hope everyone has a Wonderful Primitive Day.

Trash 2 Treasure

Good Morning Everyone!!
Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. Sometimes everyday life jus' keeps ya busy.
Anyway, I've been workin' on lots of things....
My favorite thing is....my New Remade Table...
I have a trunk in my Family room that jus' wasn't tall enough to be a coffee table. I've been tryin' to figure out how to make it work...cuz, I really like the trunk. Well, I saw a really beat up coffee table in the trash across the street from us. Yep, you guessed it...I made hubby go get it for me!!
I didn't need the table to be too tall....in fact, it's only5 inches tall....but it gave me jus' enough height to my trunk that it now works much better.
Here's my Trash 2 Treasure...Before 'n After


Top had to go...

New top...and legs cut off...

New coat of Black...

Coat of my Favorite "Mustard"paint...


Rubbed down with my Brown Shoe Polish...

In it's new home!!

Close up....(sorry the flash made it too bright)

Hello Everyone!

So today is my first official post to my blog. I really hope you enjoy following me through my Primitive Journey...I'm tryin' to get together a "Themed Blog". Bare with me while I work the kinks out. If there is anything special you'd like for me to blog about...or really any suggestion...Please, feel free to give me a shout. I'm really new to bloggin' and I could use all of the suggestions I can get.
Right now, I have so many different things I'm workin' on....I really need to finish one before I start another...(like that's gonna happen...LOL)
Anyway, I'm in the middle of changing around some of my "Goodies" in the house. Jus' kinda want to re-arrange things to have a new look without really buying new things. Plus, I'm workin' on some of my GW finds....love going to the GW and finding wonderful things to"Prim". Lastly, I've got several sewing projects going on....curtains, Raggie dollie...and a few Prim crafts. Oh...almost forgot...I'm also, rusting some bells, safety pins, and some wire hubby found for me. Now I jus' need him to find me some springs for my crafts.
Ok...so I think todays Theme is gonna be...."Before and After Monday". I'm hoping to finish up my GW finds and post the before and after pictures of them something later today.
Hope everyone has a Wonderful Primitive Day.
