Prayers to her family and the many people who will miss her so much.

They are so creative and will add so much to your home .
See these and more items from Joan at:
1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?

Creating is Therapy for me and helps me to forget the pain and I thoroughly enjoy it!
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
Probably my Art Dolls. I love to dress them in vintage baby clothes from the 1920's and each of them comes out different with their own personality.

The FIrecracker kids always has something to celebrate in her store. Wonderful workmanship and quality throughout all of her work. Take some time to look through her store for that perfect home accessory or Christmas gift. You will not be disappointed.
1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name? Firecrackerkid Primitives. I chose this name, because I was born on the 4th of July, and my family always called me "the firecrackerkid". My father said when I was born I came out with a bang, jokingly of course. Plus it's Independence Day, and I really love my country, and my freedom so it all fits together nicely.
2. How long have you been on Etsy? One year and four months
3. What type of items do you offer? One-of-a-kind Woodcrafts and reproduction woodcrafts of different Early American dough bowl racks and furniture.
4. How long have you been crafting? Twenty years.
5. Who or What inspires you? The love of all things Primitive. Plus, the economy is what inspired my husband and myself to make our own Primitives. My husband is who inspires me, because of his hard work ethics, and the fact that he can do just about anything or any challenge put before him. He's a hard working man. A Jack-of-all-trades so to speak. He was a carpenter since he was a teenager, and even built our home along with several other homes locally. Pretty inspiring and impressive to me.
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why? That would be our one-of-a-kind items. We like to come up with unique primitive woodcrafts that are appealing to others, and yet at the same time are functional in the home.
7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog) http://www.firecrackerkid.etsy.com http://firecrackerkid.blogspot.com/ http://myworld.ebay.com/carola_firecrackerbaby http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/profile.php?id=1817572815&v=wall&ref=name

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name? When I was a little girl, my family moved. I was very lonely but found a library near our home, so I would walk there every day and spend hours browsing at books. I found a book titled Apple Tree Cottage and I was absolutely swept away by it. The cottage was a magical place where peace and love was found. I decided if I would name my shop in honor of this book that has such an impression on me when I was young.
2. How long have you been on Etsy? I joined Etsy in January, 2008.
3. What type of items do you offer? I offer an eclectic mix of vintage, folk art and primitive items. I love to paint on old pieces that have a story to tell when they come my way.
4. How long have you been crafting? FOREVER! I have been fortunate to be surrounded by people who have encouraged me since I was small. My husband and my daughter are my two biggest fans.
5. Who or What inspires you? I love things that come to me with a history. Old boxes, drawers and coffee pots have a story to tell and I like to add just a little “prim” icing on the cake when I find a piece that longs to be reinvented.
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why? I can’t say I have one favorite piece. I love everything I paint… each item in my store is something that I would place in my own home.
7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog) I sell only on Etsy. You may visit my blog at appletreecottage.blogspot.com.

My youngest went off to school!!!!!
It's been so busy around here with kids coming and going. Made me dizzy!
But three are back at school and one is waiting to start a new job so I think there may be some sort of order around here but that is no guarantee.
But when I saw this sign I had to share it with you. It shows where my thinking is and where my time will be spent today.
This sign is from Old Farmhouse Gathering member: curvednoodle at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29788017&ref=sr_gallery_9&&ga_search_query=ofg&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=date_desc&includes=tags&includes=title
This and many other great signs to add to your home can be found there.
So have some tea and browse for a while.

Decorating in the Primitive, country or colonial styles allows so much for for individual personality. Maybe that is one reason I enjoy it so. Maybe that is a reason I was so attracted to making a 100 year old barn a home for my family. The barn has presented us with challenges --- and I keep telling myself that is what makes us strong. That may be true.
This is a photo of how I use antiques, my ornies and hand painted items to decorate my home. I enjoy the symbolism of the bountifulness of the farm we live on and that is shown in the apples and beans. The mortar and pestle are antiques pasted down through the generations. The pestle bowl is an item I painted and the horse (love my horses) photo was something I was able to pick up at a local farm auction.
When decorating your own home, surround yourself and your family with things you love and make you feel content, safe, warm and proud in those who came before you. That is part of prim decorating - making yourself comfortable and your home inviting to those you love and those you have yet to meet. Life is good!

My Etsy shop of the week is: Apple Tree Cottage!
This listing for a vintage lunch box that the artist describes.
Description I love this old vintage lunchbox. I like to think of how many times it was carried to work or to school and what it held to eat for all the years it was used. This lunchbox has been given a new life and would be perfect to hold your autumn correspondance, remote controls or even trick or treat candy! I painted a blackbird on a wagon whose pockets are filled with a little jack o' lantern and bittersweet vines. He holds an autumnal medallion in his beak. Orange pennies with star buttons border both sides. Two curly stemmed pumpkins are painted on the bottom of the front. I wrapped the handle of the lunchbox with orange and black checked homespun and a rusty bell is tied on with novelty yarn. The inside is in great condition and I gave it a spray of rust preventative paint to seal it.
You can this this great piece of art at:

Here is a fun a healthy tip for a midday snack. Easy to prepare and no refined sugar.
Put 2 bananas into the blender. Blend until smooth. Ad two cups of frozen (preferably organic) berries--we love blueberries and blend until the mixture is thick and smooth.
This has the consistency of a sorbet, and is O SO GOOD!
I don't get pictures because it goes right away.
Staying healthy on the farm

Firecracker Kid, aka Carol, is a wonderful prim artisan as well as a great online friend. Always something positive to contribute. So in honor of both her fine craftsmanship and more, she is my Etsy pick of the week.
Get a cup of tea, some time and enjoy her shop at: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5748075
This item is described as: This OOAK(one of a kind) wooden, handcrafted, 4-pin rolling pin rack, or as I like to call it a rolling pin keep, will display your early old antique or vintage farmhouse rolling pins, and primitive related items. This 4-pin rolling pin rack is new and made of 3/4 inch pine wood by my husband and handfinished by me.
I sand it to give it a worn look and rub it with paste stain for an added effect. NOTE: This rolling pin rack can be custom made with measurements to fit your rolling pins. Give us the length of the barrels, and total length of each of your rolling pins at checkout. This listing is for the 4-pin rolling pin rack only. The other pictured items are for decorating ideas and are not for sale.
Since this is a one-of-a-kind item, no two are exactly alike so the measurements are approximate and according to your rolling pin sizes...
14&3/4" W x 4&1/4 D
Below the top shelf...
13" W x 3&3/4" D x 22&1/2" H

Finally I took some time to work on my house. The entry way really needs to be finished and that is what is finally happening. It is still not finished. I am going to put a blue heron in the pond on the right side. I love seeing them in the area. Again, the buildings are very similar to the buildings that were on our farm at the turn of the century.
The doors are the stall doors that were from the days when the barn was actually a barn. Fun stuff!!!!
Talk to you soon!!!!

Family always comes first and maybe soon I will be able to work on new projects in sewing and painting. As soon as Dave graduated, Ted went back to school for the summer session. Then Annie had her orientation at the University this last Monday. Every mom should have a daughter like her. Incredible person! And Ted is bringing home a friend for this weekend! A girlfriend!! I like her.
The top pic shows my daughter with Representative Manzullo. She played at a meeting he was a speaker at earlier in the year. Next she is shown at her last Phi Theta Kappa meeting which is the National Honors Society for 2 year colleges. She was president. The lower picture shows her not wanting her picture taken at summer event. She can get crabby when her picture is taken.
She also got a call from the University asking her if she was interested in applying for the honors program. cool!!!!!!
She is a great farm girl also. She can do almost anything here and is a wonderful equestrian and is nearly a botanist with all that she knows about the plants in our garden.
I think one of the greatest gifts a parent can give their child is the desire to work hard and living here on the farm is a way of doing that. The 4 grown kids here can bale hay, fix fencing, ride and gentle horses, study hard and have fun with family and friends. Not bad.
Its been more than a busy summer, its been a lifetime and a great one at that!!!!
Hugs from a tired but happy mom,

The last couple of weeks have been very full. Dave graduated and then invited one of his friends from China came to spend some time with us. It was a wonderful time. Our guest was so sweet and we will miss her a great deal. We wish her all the best on her return to her home and want her to know that she will always have a another home here when she returns to the U.S. She is on the plane now and on her way.
Now that things are maybe retuning to a dull roar, I am looking forward to getting back to swing of sewing and painting. Today I will clean my studio as therapy and prepare to get back to work.
Life is an adventure and I love it!
But I could use a little more energy right now!!!!!!

Rabbithollowprims is a great place to shop!!!!!! Love this cabbage that has so much personality. This would look great in a kitchen, dining room, porch or sun room all year round.'
Made from muslin and up for your consideration are cabbage heads. They roughly measure 10 inches across and vertically also. They can be made in green or red. Each one has a sculpted face and hand-painted eyes and mouth with separately attached eyelids. Great as bowl fillers or cupboard tucks and more. Pattern by R & K Creations.....
You can see this item and more at the Etsy store by Rabbit Hollow Prims:
Sue does great things, You will enjoy your visit.

Dave's graduation ended up taking the whole week. It was a strenuous and exhilarating week. We drove back and forth the whole week because we had to make sure all the animals here at the farm were taken care of. That went well.
The ceremony was on Saturday. It rained buckets but it went well anyway. I posted a picture of Dave. He has the red stole on because he was one of the students that studied abroad in China. He had to make the cut which was difficult.
It is funny to think of him showing his cattle in the show ring (won Midwest champion for his breed) and also remember how much time he spent with his horse. We will keep that horse forever. Stormy and Dave have been such a team. There are so many great memories of him growing up. He is adventuresome and I am sure there will be many more wonderful memories to come.
He is back on the farm for the summer! Yea!!!!!! Then he will be off on a new adventure. Dave is that way. He has always been great at setting a goal and reaching it. I'd like to think part of it comes from living here and working so hard.
We are so proud of him. He worked hard for this and earned it.
Now back to work here on the farm and looking forward to getting more things done around here.
Big and happy hugs from the Midwest,

These stars looked like something I would have in my home. Love them. Simple, colorful and always appropriate.
They are made by homespunannie who is also a member of OFG or Olde Farmhouse Gathering, a group of folk and primitive artists on Etsy.
They are described as:
Three large Americana stars in coordinating cotton prints. They have been stained in a coffee/spice mix and baked. Each has rusty wire with stars garland wrapped around them. Measures 7 inches by 7 inches. Set of three. Caramel scented.
All my ornies and tucks are made to order, taking 3-5 days to ship. They all stain and bake up differently and no two are ever the same. All my items are handmade in a smoke-free environment!
See them at: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25844513&ref=sr_gallery_5&&ga_search_query=ofg&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=5&includes=tags&includes=title

Stars and Stripes Forever DessertI am going to make this on the weekend. If you try it, please let me know how it goes for you!
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY Weekend to you!!!!
From Taste of Home http://www.tasteofhome.com
Served with a creamy, full-bodied dip, sugared puff pastry stars and a fresh berry medley make a festive dessert. “It’s pretty, delicious and easy to prepare for the Fourth of July or any summer gathering,” says field editor Gail Sykora from Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min. + cooling
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 1 to 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon coarse sugar
- 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
- 1-1/2 cups fresh raspberries
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon Domino® or C&H® Granulated Pure Cane Sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
Directions:On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with floured star-shaped cookie cutters. Place 1 in. apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Brush lightly with water and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Cool.
In a large bowl, combine berries and 1/4 cup sugar; set aside. In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add remaining sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Place sour cream in a small serving bowl; fold in whipped cream.
Place bowl on a serving platter. Spoon berry mixture onto platter; top with pastry stars. Yield: 8 servings.
Spring is especially busy around here. These are pictures of the greenhouse, which my sons built. (Yes, I am a happy and proud mom-most of the time!) The greenhouse has done exceptionally well this year and the herb garden should double in size. YEA!!!!!!!
Today, must get DD ready for her 5 day camping trip for a medieval re-enactment. This is going to be very stressful as she is the ultimate perfectionist. Getting ready for son #2 to come home for the weekend-that's good. He said he would appreciate a break before he graduates. Sheep should be getting sheared today and about the llamas. They too need shearing. That should be interesting! The guys are taking the chainsaw out to the back tree line where a lot a trees went down during the storms this spring. I always worry.
Hopefully, this afternoon, I will be able to sit down, have some tea (my crutch) and do some sewing or painting. I think I will need the therapy.
Enjoy your spring. talk to you tomorrow.

Today I am going to finish up some primitive items for the home. Pictured here is a wall mirror with hooks (I have to put the hooks back and add the mirror) a desk organizer and a letter organizer. They are all done in black and distressed. I am continuing to work on Prim Patriotic dolls. Again, so much to do and so little time.
There is still still to enter the Name the New Kids on the Farm Contest. Please add your suggestions in the comment area. So far the names are terrific. The little goats are female twins and they are pictured in a previous entry. Drawing will be on the last day of the month!!!!!!
Be creative and have some fun with their names.

Well, I have been working on the mural in the entryway, but it is not ready for viewing yet. I did decide on the grey to paint the wainscoting. Maybe it will be ready next week.
So I thought I would show you a part of my studio or work room. When you live in a barn, it can be daunting or a great adventure to turn an area that was once used for milking into a family friendly home. It also helps when your sons are talented and can do the things you ask them to do even if they groan while doing it.
The lower level of our barn was total open space which is great for seeing everything going on in the family but not so good when desiring some peace or privacy. So after showing the guys the "brilliance" of my idea, they built a wall of closets at the back third of the barn. It allows me to attempt to hide my fabric and other items I am working on. They still spill over onto the dining room table and more. But they are great to do this and it does make life a little more livable in our fun home.
There are three boys and one girl in the family and they will soon be home for the summer. The list for this summer includes more closets, new bathroom ceiling and other indoor projects as well as the never ending fencing in and around the pastures. I hope they will be happy to be home.

Today at the grocery store the veterans were taking donations and giving the traditional poppies in return. The veteran I talked to said the money would go to help service people returning from Irag, Afghanistan and other places we have them stationed around the world. Presently they are trying to help a young man who has returned from Iraq and is in need of help paying his mortgage because he can't find a job. There are so many people who do such wonderful and needed things. It's an honor to help them, even if it is in such a small way.
These patriotic ornies are available at:
Have a safe and happy weekend.

The little building with the chimney is still there but in need of TLC. A tornado years ago made it look a little tilted. Friends said they would help make it right this summer.
There is an Amish wagon because I enjoy my Amish friends north of us. Again, years ago, there were Amish in the area but they moved across the border into Wisconsin. They are wonderful and helpful. Two years ago, my son brought 11 foreign exchange students to the farm for Thanksgiving and we showed them the sights in our rural area. They loved their time with the Amish who fed them fresh bread, let them help cover strawberries and explore their wagons and farms. It was a wonderful experience for them and gave them another bit of insight into life in our country.
SO much work and not enough time. But Rome wasn't built in a day and this place will shine!!! It truly is a labor of love.
The land here had not been touched for years and we now graze sheep, llamas and horses on it.
Stayed tuned for more home improvements......
The name the new kids contest is still going on. Name the two new little baby goat girls and win a set of Americana kitties ornies. If you have names to contribute, please add them to the comment section of this post and become a follower of the blog.
The names so far are great!!! Very creative and funny people in this world and happy to know some of them come here. Laughter makes the world go round or at least helps give us all some relief and down time. Thanks for the entrees. Have enjoyed them all.
