Primitive Rocking Horse

Hello everyone, You've probably been wondering where I have been. I've been in a slump every since my daughter and granddaughter went back to NC last month. I miss them. So today I finished up this little primitive rocking horse, isn't he sweet! I will get him listed in my etsy shop tonight. Then will work on a pattern for him this weekend. I'll post a link for the pattern here on my blog when it is finshed.

Did a little yard one day this week when it got up into the 60's. Sure felt good to get out in the sunshine! My tulips are popping up, and already having to battle with the deer again. I bought some stuff that really works good last year to keep the deer away. It's called, This 1 Works Deer Repellent, by Fertilome. I highly recommend it. I am so ready to get out and plant flowers. I know its still a ways off before I can do that. Just happy the days are warming up. Should be in the upper 60's maybe 70 next week!!! yippie! Hope everyone has great weekend!!


  1. Omg! That is the cutest little rocking horse that i have ever seen! I want one! lol hugs Kathy

  2. My dental hygenist helps to care for her parents gardens the Texas Hill Country. Sort of between San Antonio and Austin....well they had BIG deer problems! Every plant they put out...was someone told her to go to her hair stylist and ask for the sweepings (yes it's someone else's hair) and then to throw them on the gardens....she said the deer still visit...but don't stay to eat!

    Love your rocking horse!

    Thank you for sharing!

    I'm sorry you are missing your daughter and grand daughter:('s hard when then come home for a visit and leave again..the house seems so empty it's like they are heading off to college or moving out for the first time all over again!
