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.

This and That…

Morning everyone!!

Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Life has kept me pretty busy.

Anyway…I wanted to share a few things I’ve been doing.

Don’t forget to click on my pictures to view a larger image.

Here are some Hanging Rusty Wire Elec. Candles I’ve been makin’ and puttin’ everywhere in my house…inside and outside…LOL

These are the electric candle lights you can get at the dollar tree.

These two are in the house…



This one is outside on my back porch…looks awesome at night.


They are so easy to make…and perfect for placing really anywhere.

Here’s a few things the hubs  helped me make.

Jus’ a simple piece of old barn wood with a rusty wire and star added….fits perfect here.


Ok…I don’t have this all the way decorated. I have this hanging in my Living room…it’s the room I’m workin’ on…I pretty much have nothing decorated in this room right now. Plus, I’m not real happy with the way this pic is…it looks as though the shelf is tiny…trust me…it’s not…it measures a little over 3 foot long and 1 1/2 foot wide…it really does fit perfect. Plus, I think the hubs did an awesome job…now I jus’ need to get the right Prim goodies on it.


Here’s the Candle holder that I have hanging on the side of the old barn wood shelf….hubs made it too.


Here’s a few things I picked up yesterday…

I started to paint my basket…then stopped so I could get a before…then ran out of paint…gonna make a run to Wally World for paint…gotta finish my basket today.


Here’s a cute lil rockin’ chair. I’m not likin’ the blue….not sure what I’m gonna do with the blue…any ideas??



Yes…there’s more….LOL

Here’s a stitchery I did the other day…it was inspired by my Prim Friend Brandi Hall. You can find the Free pattern at Primitive Blessings. Thanks so much Tiffany for sharing this pattern with us…and to Brandi for showing us her beautiful version of Tiffany’s pattern.

Here’s my version…


Here’s a couple sign’s my sis and her hubs made for me. I haven’t found a place for them yet. Thanks Cyndy and Steve…I love ‘em!!



Here’s a long book shelf I bought at a YS….forgot to get a before…but it was jus’ plain wood….nothing fancy. Again…I don’t have much on this shelf either…it’s another piece that’s in my Living room…waiting to be decorated…LOL


The doors on the bottom open…I have some of  my favorite books stored in there…


Here’s a close up of the aging look I did to the shelf.


I’ve saved my favorite for last…

The hubs bought this desk for me from our local GW. I did have a nice solid oak old desk…in mint condition…but I changed my desktop computer to a laptop several months ago…and my old desk jus’ wasn’t big enough anymore. So the hubs surprised me with this desk…I didn’t get a before pic…but if you can imagine a Pinkish-Red color…well that’s jus’ what this desk looked like….Not Pretty!! Although, it’s a really nice solid oak desk….the drawers are dove tailed…very nicely made. Please pay no attention to my computer cords…those buggers are so hard to hide…LOL


Much more room for me with my new laptop…


Close up of the aging I did…


Hope you enjoyed seeing the new things that’s been going on here at our home.

Have a Wonderful day everyone!
