Primitive Two Turtle Dove Ornies

Finally after several days of clouds and rain the sun has come out! Had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family this year. Daughter and her family came home from NC. The four days they were here was a whirlwind! Grandchildren sure can wear you out! They safely made their drive back home to NC and now it's time to get busy sewing again!

I listed this sweet pair of doves on ebay last night. It's getting closer and closer to Christmas, so I made this auction a three day listing.

Sunday I made a trip to the antique mall with my sister. My sister who isn't a very crafty person has recently gotten hooked on pinterest and has found several Christmas projects and decorating ideas that she had to try. So off to the antique mall we went. Country Fair Mall is huge! It takes you a good 2 hours to walk through the place. I found a couple of goodies!

Sis bought this vintage cat door stop for me for my birthday, which is in a couple of weeks. I Love it!!!

And I just had to have this wooden spice box, which was the only thing I bought.

The robin is something I made years ago along with the nest. The sweet mouse doll I bought this past summer at a prim shop in LeClaire, Iowa when visiting there for the American Picker's weekend that they have every summer.

If you are looking for a Christmas gift for that hard to buy person, why not a custom made calendar! This quality made calendar is made by me with all my wonderful nature photos!! I have a link on the right hand column of my blog that takes you directly to the purchase page. Be sure to click on the link that shows you all of the pages of the calendar so you can see what each month looks like.

I'm giving these to all my family and friends this year for Christmas. I think they will be surprised!


  1. I like how you did the birds in a prim christmas look. I made one of your birds, but need to spend some more time making things.


  2. Pretty doves~ the kitty door stop makes me giggle~ I have a real one at my bathroom door almost all the time~ favorite spot for him to sleep~
