Last year's Thanksgiving turkey

This is the turkey from last year's Thanksgiving dinner. It was a little over 30 pounds and was the hit for 11 foreign exchange students that my son invited to stay with us for the week. They were from France, China, Japan, Indonesia, Korea and more.
They were great kids and actually helped with some of the cooking. They were so happy to see a farm here in the U. S. Our weather was a little cooler than they were used to and they thought we were a "hardy" people. They were wonderful guests and we were truly thankful for the time we spent together.

Thanksgiving hangtags !!!!!!!

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year everywhere, but especially on the farm. I love to give gifts to those who share our meal. These hang tags can be used for attaching to gifts, crafts projects, thank yous for hostess gifts, whatever your heart desires.

The background for these hand tags is a soft parchment for that olde time look.

The graphics are all 300 dpi for wonderful printing results.

Find them on my website for $2. , and print as many times as you wish for as many years as you wish. There are other printables to help you enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Happy Harvest.

The gourd pattern is here. Again, Harvest time is a favorite here in farm country and this gourd pattern is a result of bringing the garden. In the family garden we raise useful and decorative plants, and this pattern is from looking at the gourds we brought in this autumn. Hope you like it. It can be found at

It's been so long since my last post. I think there just was so much to do and so little time. Well, things are at an even pace now and I want to get back to my blog and learn more about how to make it better.

Had a couple more baby llamas born this summer and they look as though their wool will be beautiful. Everything here on the farm has grown well this past season. Looking forward to Thanksgiving. This will be the first Thanksgiving in years that all my children have not been together. My second son is studying in China and Japan this semester. It will be very strange to be without him. But the others will all be here and that is wonderful.

I have been working on new ideas and just need to get the patterns done. Will let you know as tis happens.

Here's to a great and beautiful autumn.

Talk to you soon.....

New Blog Design!!!

Just uploaded this new blog design. Just makes me happy!!!
Back to work to get a couple of orders out and them on to new projects.

Please be looking for the new Primitive Crafters and Designers newsletter to be out today. If you haven't signed up for it, please go our site and take a peek. I wrote about starting an herb garden and next month will focus on a crafters garden-including herbs. Which reminds me, will go out later today and see how the boys are doing in the greenhouse. This time of year that is where I will be when not working on folk art and prims.

Spring is here and the sun is out! What could be better. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

New Happenings

Wanted to let everyone know that the new Olde Primitive Sisters Online Market Place group website is up and going. Thanks to Bebe, the graphics are wonderful.
You can take a look at it at:

Also new items were added to the Primitive Crafters and Designers Marketplace at the beginning of the month.
There are many fine primitives people on these sites and you might enjoy shopping at these two great places.

Life continues here at the farm. The snow has started melting and am am looking forward to taking full advantage of the greenhouse, my own little world, this week.

The new line of patterns continues, but is taking a little longer than I wanted, but everything always does.

Hope your spring is coming along. I can't wait to get outside in the garden.

February Finally!!!

Life has been much busier than I thought it would be this time of year, Things are always busier than I think they will be.
The new patterns are coming along well. Just to let you know they are inspired from my summers in Maine, visiting family near the coast. One dear great aunt still lives on the family farm that has been in the family since the 1800s. They still has the legal right to go over whatever land they need to, in order to get to the coast, as the document was signed by a king of England long ago and is still valid. She still runs a vegetable stand on the road to her home and continues to work hard. I believe she is in her mid 80s. I hope to be as active and stubborn as she is down the road.

Another duty is the start working on the Primitive Crafters and Designers Blog with Kim Owens of Folk Art from the Heart. I am looking forward to working with Kim. Should be fun.

Also another group, Olde Primitive Sisters is starting a new website and I am happy to be a part of that also. I enjoy working with Bebe and the other great prim artists there. Will let you know when it is open for business.

Back to work. Hope everyone stays warm. Winter is definitely not over yet.

It's chilly here this morning. At minus ten degrees we worked fast to get all the animals fed and then we hurried back into the house. Thought I would post a several photos of the beauty we see here every day. The farm is a beautiful place any time of year, and I wanted to share it with you. Guess I will work on some pattern ideas this weekend and try to stay warm. Looking forward to letting all of you know when the new line of patterns is available. Stay warm!!

Prairie Harvest Folk Art and Primitives

This is the new blog for Prairie Harvest Folk Art and Primitives. Here at the farm we use the simple hills and pastures for the inspiration to create folk art and primitives. We strive to live the simple life here. It's not hard to do.

When not working the farm, I enjoy creating hand painted folk art that reflects the simple life from years ago and from here today. I enjoy making dolls, make-dos bowl fillers and anything that enhances a primitive style, country style home. I think that it adds to the stability of a home. It makes it seem, though from the past, still timeless.

Check back with us often to see what is new.
