Robins Egg Blue Fireplace....

I'm linking up to my first DIY day over at Kimba's a Soft Place to land!! Head on over and check out everyone's projects!

I have been working on the fake fireplace above.

 I headed out the other night to my favorite place Menards, stocked up on wood and Built this beauty.


I love this color.

I have been repainting all of my stuff with Robins Egg Blue.

Of course I rubbed all the edges with antiquing gel.

Here she is all done and decorated.

And another shot with all the dolls I've been making.

So what do you think? Is everyone ready for Christmas? Shopping, baking all done? I know I'm not. Not even close.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

A few pics from around the homestead...

This is Nicole @ Bugaboos Creations posting for my mom today. I got her to email me a few pictures from around her house as well as her craft area. Enjoy!

This is her craft area. I would totally craft here! I wish my living room were as pretty as this! She told me to tell you it's messy as she had been working but uh messy? Yeh you should see ( my grams is crackin up on that about now ) mine.

More crafting space...I love love love that cabinet. She just repainted it, she has been repainting all of her stuff, she does this oh about every 6 months or so, haha.

She is working on this little cutie now for her etsy shop.

And this little guy too :)

I loveeeeee the ceiling tiles, so cool. She makes or buys and refinishes all of her furniture pieces. I wish my paint jobs looked half as good as hers!

Love this, so cute!

Love this.

She made this. Inside is covered in toile paper. I love it. The top opens up and then there is a drawer too.

She collects clocks, she has so many neat ones. She wants a wall of them and I am sure has enough by now.

That's All! I am going to post another with a few new dolls she has going up in etsy. They are so Adorable!

Past creations....lots of pictures...

I don't have anything finished up today, so I thought I would share some past creations...Enjoy :)

A cabinet I made out of old doors.

A door table I made with old door.

A shelf out of an old window. It's amazing what you can do with those old doors and windows!

A dollhouse I built out of a kit. Wouldn't you like to move in?

The inside which as you can see was unfinished.

I made these one year for Valentines day.

Some mitten ornies...

and stockings...Oh wait, what's it hanging on? Yes, an old window.

A snowman....

I liked this guy in his striped pjs.

This is one of my favorite Santas, sometimes it's hard to get rid of your creations.

Gingerbread ornies. These are fun and pretty easy to make, and they smell good and last forever.

Another old door cabinet...

Some dollies I made having tea :)

A bench....

My porch a few years back decorated for Christmas. I have not decorated a thing this year. We have moved and I just haven't gotten into it yet.

That's it! Pretty boring, right? Have a Great Thursday!

New to blogging and some New Angel Dolls....

Welcome to Patty Cake Primitives! I am still trying to figure out this blogging thing. My daughter Nicole over at Bugaboos Creations said it's a must! I have been crafting since my teens, I started out teaching myself how to sew, then I got into woodworking, and now I do a little of both, though it's mostly sewing. I have been selling on ebay under PattyCakePrimitives for a few years now, I stopped last winter as I moved, and tons of other boring things happened that I won't go into detail about. I do construction in the summers which takes up ALL of my time so in the winter I sew sew sew as much as I can. I just listed my first 2 things on etsy tonight here. I am going to try etsy and skip ebay for awhile.

This sweet sweet girl is made of both paper mache and paper clay, I sculpted her head out of paper clay then painted, and antiqued it. She is up in my etsy shop right here.


 Aren't her little ornaments the sweetest?


 I have been making these for years. These are neat displayed on an old door or hanging from a prim shelf or cupboard. She is available in my etsy shop as well right here.


Well I will have lots of things to come! I have been painting and making lots of furniture and will show befores and afters! I hope you stick around as I can't wait to share more of my projects with you!

Thanks for Stopping over at Patty Cake Primitives!
