Feeling like Spring here...

All this warm weather has me daydreaming about Spring around here!  It's been unseasonably warm here in the Atlanta daffodils are already wilting...that's how long they have been blooming!

 and check out our daylilies...they are already 5" to 6" above ground .  It probably doesn't help that we were on Tybee Island this month too.  Roger, my  hubby, and Mary, my sister, ran in the Critz Tybee Run Fest.  We enjoyed beach weather in the 70s and glorious, glorious sunshine for four days!!!  They both ran a good race and Mary even came in 10th in her age group over all!  It was a great weekend. 
Here's Mary getting ready to start her race (Roger is still working on his morning coffee hee hee)

And Mary hamming it up for the camera!

Well, somehow I managed to squeeze in a little bit of creative play this past week.  I just listed these two little Chicks on Etsy so I could spread the Spring Love around a bit.  If you are interested, you can click on the link to my Etsy shop and you will be able to take a closer look. 

Started a workshop this week...I'll share more about that as I get into it, but so far I am loving it.  There's art work and creative journaling so far so how could a girl go wrong, right?  

Wishing you a wonderful week this week....Susan

New Dollie on Etsy!

It's been a fun and busy week at Prim and Proper Folks...and it's only Wednesday! We have had a wonderful response to our Pumpkinvine Primitives wooden treasures...Thank you!!  I have been painting and staining my heart out, getting orders ready to fill and ship.  It's been a nice change of pace and has really sparked my creativity for my doll designs.  There are three new dollies on my worktable this week(that has got to be a record of some sort for me heehee) and this sweet little gal was just finished yesterday.  After a day of picture taking, she is finally ready to be offered in my Etsy shop.  Introducting LuElla Ladybug!

I hope to have another update for you this weekend.  Until then, thank you so much for stopping by...

New Adventure - Pumpkinvine Primitives

I have some exciting news to share with hubby, Roger, and I have started a new business...Pumpkinvine Primitives!  Roger has a natural talent for working with wood and has created many, many pieces for our home.  Now, we are working together to bring our love of primitive wooden treasures to you. We are offering finished and made to order pieces through our newly opened Etsy shop.  There are a few finished pieces there now and we will be adding items weekly, so I hope you can stop by often to take a look around the shop.  And, be sure to sign up for the Pumpkinvine Primitives Newsletter to receive updates when we have new items available!

We are also thrilled to have been accepted into the T.D.I.P.T Mercantile and will be offering finished pieces on the 1st of each month.  Pumpkinvine Primitives debuts today on the Mercantile with several warm and wonderfully prim and early American pieces and one sweet (if I do say so myself) Prim and Proper Folks original dollie!

More to come soon, my friends.....thanks for visiting....Susan
