Finally, a gorgeous spring day working outside all day. These magnificent beasts live near me. I have watched them from little foals to these wonderful young clydesdales. They run around the field chasing each other like colts. Six beauties! I would love to see anyone else's spring pics or animal pics too.

I just wanted to show you the lovely doll I just received from bittersweetprims on etsy. My husband bought her for my birthday and I named her Ophelia.


Luca likes to get involved in my work. I told him if he didn't move when I took this picture he would go up for sale with the other cats. I cannot believe it is taking so long to get sunny weather here. How about my fellow bloggers putting up some spring pics if you have some nice spring weather to cheer me up. I would like to see what it is like for everyone else this time of year. I will check out your blog just let me know if you are putting on some sunny pics. Off to see my grandbaby today, she is having her first shots and my daughter-in-law is in a state. I think it will hurt her more than the baby. We are going to give them both some cuddle time.

Well it's another windy, wet day here. I feel like cuddling under the blankets with a good book but spring cleaning calls. I feel purged when I am finished like I have shed my winter skin. Sometimes I forget where I even got half the stuff I find. Oh well another ones trash and all. My little Luca has the right idea today. Oh but to have a pampered cats life, to stay in bed all day with your favourite mouse!

Just wanted to let you all know that my button is on the Handmade Art Fair blog. Their button is on mine check them out. My new wedding pillow is listed at Wicked Faerie Queen on etsy today. The weather is a little nicer but very gloomy yesterday. The room my computer is in I made into an outdoor room a few years ago so I could feel like summer even in the winter. In front of my computer I painted a window with a summer scene so at least in this room it is cheery.

I had a great day of shopping therapy yesterday. Stocked up on my moisturizers at HomeSense. For those of you in the U.S. it is called something else but I am not sure. If you have never been there, go! Not only does it have great housewares you can't beat their beauty dept. I only use products not tested on animals and they carry basically all of that. I love this line called "blum". They are so cheap $5.99 canadian for eye cream, night cream and day cream. I highly recommend this produce. Go on their website blum naturals for a location. In the U.S. it is sold in drug stores, not here. I wanted to share a couple of my favourite dolls with you. They are made by the Tireless Artist, go to her blog. I cannot believe the work she does. So intricate, she hand sews all her clothes and makes the shoes, each doll has their own wooden box with a drawing of the doll on the box, amazing!

It is a little cooler today but still lovely. I hope you all had a nice Easter. We had a quiet one I worked in my studio ( so nice to be back in there after such a cold winter) Made another wedding pillow. Out today for some shopping therapy. Raining tomorrow so doing

some spring cleaning, I don't know where it all comes from but I swear my clothes mate in the closet all winter because it seems like I have double every spring! Have a beautiful day and don't forget to have a look at the great giveaways from the fab blogs I have listed.

I want to thank everyone who gave me advice on the buttons. As you can see I finally figured it out and you were all right once I got it , it was so easy. Thanks everyone!


I just visited the PAFA blog and read about the wonderful new giveaway. From April 15 to May 15 many talented artists have donated fabulous pieces for this great giveaway. Stop by and have a look. Just go to my PAFA button( which I just put on thanks to the PAFA TEAMS great instructions now I just have to figure out how to do more buttons) and visit their blog.


It's Easter Sunday, a beautiful day, we worked outside yesterday put out a lot of the furniture, we have a screened-in room ( I highly recommend building one) and I can't wait to sit in there on sunny mornings drinking my tea and looking at Country Living Magazine ( I love the British Addition, so country). I just finished this cute wedding pillow and wanted to share. Now I am going to sit on the porch and enjoy this fresh spring Easter morning. Hope you all have a good one!

At last the sun has come out. The birds are singing today hopefully that is a sign of days to come. We have had so much rain there are ponds all over the property. I've been making these little wedding pillows and puncushions with lots of flowers. Maybe I'm channeling summer through my work, what do you think?

For all our friends and family and especially for our little Quinn-Estelle, Happy First Easter Baby.


I love making these little ring bearer pillows so I have decided to make an assortment which will be in my shop "Wickedfaeriequeen" on etsy in a minute. So far Prossers house is still standing, I will update with any news. It is nice to see I am not the only one who prefers the historical old gals.

This lovely old home belonged to a dear friend of ours, Prosser Robinson. Prosser lived here almost all of his life with his greenhouses and his cats. He was a great friend to all of us in the village. We lost him a few years ago and a neighbour bought his home. Recently the old siding has been stripped to reveal even older siding. I hope they will try to restore it, if not I am sad, not only for the loss of this lovely proud old lady but because our house is almost the same design and one of the last in our area Our little Stella was one of Prossers last kittens and I thing of him when I look at her..

Also, our little Stella was one of Prossers last kittens and I remember our dear friend when I look at her.


Just wanted to share some new pillows I am putting in my etsy shop today (Wickedfaeriequeen) Very cute little bird couple. Weather a little nicer today, still cool. I haven't seen many spring flowers although when we were visiting our son, his wife and adorable new baby yesterday there was a nice patch of bluebells coming up in the garden in front of his building. I am going to work on those darn buttons today. Hopefully I can put some of my other team members on my blog this weekend.

I just want to let everyone who has signed up to follow me that I am trying to visit everyones blogs and follow them but I am having a problem with my internet. Living in the country we don't have cable so we use wireless which depending on the weather is really slow. I will visit you all soon. I am having fun looking at your blogs but I will have to follow you later.


It is that time of year when brides are getting down to the wire with the final details of their big day. I am working on some wedding items for my shop, I like doing the little pillows.
I want to thank everyone who has visited and followed me this week. Blogging is so much fun, I get to have contact with so many different people in so many places. I like visiting others blogs and seeing where people live and what they are interested in. It sure is cheaper than a plane ticket! Keep blogging friends!

Well it is another dark, damp day here. If it is now snowing it is raining. I still need help with the buttons, I would love to put up a button and invite others to do so. Any advice? I am sure I will figure it out. Very happy with my blog and visiting other blogs. If you visit leave your blog address I like to see what others are doing. Here are some pics. of my furry family

I almost forgot, I worked all yesterday afternoon trying to figure out how make and put a button on my blog that will connect to my shop. I want to be able to put other peoples buttons on too, who are interested and have etsy shops. I tried to put the PAFA button up and cannot do that. Anyone who can help me I would appreciate it so much. I feel so dumb about this, most computer stuff I can figure out but this has me stumped.


I cannot believe that we have snow again, will it ever end? Been working on orders this weekend and discovered relisting on my etsy shops. Hope this will get some more views. Here are some pics from Lucys Garden, thought you might like to see some of my primitive work. Have a good one!

I just finished the Running Bunny Primitive Garden Stakes for my Etsy Shop "Lucys Garden". They are very cute. For a closer look stop by for a visit at ""



Well the weekend is here and it is a wet one. We will have rain all weekend but that's okay I have work to do for my shop. I will be adding my new garden pieces to Lucys Garden on etsy. I will show you all later. Spent the day with our lovely little grandbaby yesterday. She is so sweet I could hold her all day, I almost did! It is great having a grandbaby while I am younger because even at 12 pounds she is quite a little bundle to carry. Here is a little pillow I made for her it is one of the pillows I have at my Wicked Faerie Queen etsy shop. We have left the Alice in Wonderland figures I made for our sons wedding reciption in the yard, I think she will like that when she is a little older.

Hope wherever you are it is sunny, everyone have a nice weekend.
