Cupboard/Penny Rug...

A picture of my new primitive cupboard that I purchased on Saturday. I think it fits perfectly! The three little drawers are so neat...they are dove-tailed. It stands about 4 feet tall and is 32 inches wide. I would like to purchase a little primtive needle punch picture, that is framed up, for the small area above the antique wooden boxes. I think...


Here is my new penny rug. I love that as well. I have never found one (around this area) that was all hand made (not imported). It is the perfect size, matches perfectly and it was the only one. I consider myself lucky! It was tucked away, under some things....

This Pelican flew directly over our heads, with his wings spead wide open. Too bad that I could not grab my camera fast enough. We had a nice day fishing. The girls each caught a Wally...they were a bit small, so we threw them back in...

Jordan found this little Turtle...yup, that is a quarter. He was so cute. When Jordan first brought him over, he had his head and all his limbs tucked inside. I told him, that is no bigger then a quarter...I put a quarter up there and he said, you are right Mom. Kids can be so sweet.

Well, I have much to do and must go. I have tons of patterns to get packed up and sent out. I hope you all enjoy your day. Yesterday was almost in the 80's and Beautiful, now today is very chilly and in the low 40's (and very windy). That is crazy Minnesota for ya! Toodles Kiddies, ~Tonya

OOH I love the cabinet. The penny rug is perfect! I have never bought apenny rug before, but if I were I would have picked that one. The colors are great.

The turtle is tiny, is it a baby?
I saw some big horn sheep while in the mountains, but that is such a normal thing to see here.

Back to work this week for me! Thank gooodness. I am sooo ready!

Hugs,

Thank you so much Jenny. I could not believe the colors matched perfect.

The Painted turtle was a baby. Jordan saved it, a bird was going to have a feast. Poor little thing.

The turtles are pretty common around here too, but I thought the baby one was so sweet.

Yup, back to work and so glad!

Hello Primlin56,
