New Creations And Our First Cozy Fire In Our New Home

Blessings......I had some time the other day to finish up the hearts, bunnies and egg ornies I had been working on last week. I found these hearts at the thrift store for $1.99. Someone had handmade them out of a ticking fabric and strung them together to make a garland. When I saw them, I knew instantly they would make adorable ornies for Valentine's day. I took them apart, coffee stained them and then baked them a bit in the oven to give them that old prim look we all love:)

Finding things like this really saves me so much time...and time is so precious to me these days seeing I am in school full-time:)

And here are the bunny/egg ornie set I finished up....I think they are adorable.

They look so sweet tucked in a bowl with Easter grass.

Lately, while I am on my lunch break from school, I have been heading to Country Freckles to visit with Joni and enjoy looking around her beautiful store.

She has so many awesome groupings...she does such a wonderful job of decorating.

I LOVE these rugs!!!!

Gorgeous store.....she is heading to Pennsylvania soon to go to market...there will soon be new goodies to buy!!!!!

Rug Hooking At Country Freckles
******************


Joni is offering rug hooking classes at Country Freckles. A gal named Kathy comes in one Saturday a month and I think one evening a month and teaches ladies to make these beautiful creations.

I am so impressed with the talent and patience it takes to make and finish one of these babies:)

I took one of Kathy's rug hooking classes at her house about 1 1/2 years ago and loved it. Hopefully I can take another class at Country Freckles soon.

All the beautiful wool Kathy has available for creating.

And here is the little cozy spot in the store where Joni has set aside for the classes......so comfortable and inviting.

A Cozy Fire In Our Fireplace.....We LOVED IT!!!!
**********************


When we were home the other weekend, Brent and I decided it was time to enjoy a fire in our new fireplace. How relaxing and enjoyable!!!!!

We are both so glad that we decided to put a fireplace in our livingroom....LOVE IT!!!!

I have to say, relaxing by the fire was the best part of our weekend....I felt like I was at a lodge....it was so cool

We are going home again this weekend....can't wait to sit by another fire with my sweetie and enjoy our new home:)

And as for what I have been doing with the rest of my time....or should I say the most of my time, I am still in school. It has been going real good and I can actually say I love it (but am so glad the homework has let up some!!!!) We are now on the clinic floor doing hair 4 days a week and we are in the classroom one. I have had several clients now and enjoy it so much!!!!!! I am getting more confident and am feeling more relaxed each day which is a huge relief because I was so nervous at first....school is good and life is good:)

Hope everyone has a great week, Rhonda

Love all your goodies. The handwork on the eggs is so pretty. Thanks for sharing photos of the Shop. We have no primitive stores in my area and What would I give to be close to one. Love your fireplace. Yes they are so cozy. Have a good week.
