Lookie here....

It's a woohoo kinda day today!! Today I loved what the postman brought - not just one lovely parcel but a 2nd lovely package!
I know others have maybe got theirs already, but mine came today, woohoo - yes, the premier issue of 'A Primitive Place' magazine!! I've had a quick look through butI'm saving it 'til I get some time alone.....!

But on to the 2nd box! I have been on the look out for rusty bed springs for a while now to use in craft projects and lo and behold my good blogging friend Carole of 'Primnraggedy' just listed some on her new selling blog 'The Primitive Crow's Nest'! (The link is on my sidebar)As I opened the box to see the springs I saw this sweet prim gift wrap paper and wondered what
Carole was up to!! Well, she had tucked in this lovely surprise package of the cutest prim items~
There are prim tags and bowl filler hearts and a heart cookie cutter as well as the most delicious smelling cinnabun tart melts, 'Amish Quilts' - just perfect!

Thanks so much, Carole for such a lovely surprise!!

A question before I go... How much can you pack into a medium size suitcase?
When I got home from 'Primland' I put all my purchases on the kitchen table to see, and this is it:
A nice little booty, methinks! And to think our suitcases were even below the weight limit...
Oh well -
I'll know for again....

Best wishes!


  1. Lucky you! I can not wait to get my first issue. You sure got a lot of prim goodies in that suitcase.
