OOPS! I Did It AGAIN!!! Summer PRIMS Has 3 OLM Dolls !

Happy Spring everyone!  
I know I have been MIA!  Probably will be for awhile yet.  It's hard to believe my sister only passed away a month ago... Seems like a year already.  I won't go into it.  I just really don't want to talk about it anymore, but sadly she left a whole host of issues that will take months and years to fix.  Sadly.  
I have read all of your wonderful comments!  I know I haven't responded, but please know how much they mean!!  Blogging friends are the best!  I am trying to get back to my life some too as I help my dad navigate through the mess she left him.  He is still healing SLOWLY from his fall in January that required a particle hip replacement...So there is a lot going on...
Yes, I am trying to craft some too... easier said then done, AND finally Spring is coming to my neck of the woods!  It's been cold, record rains, but today FINALLY about 80, so I want to get out and enjoy some of that too!
BUT, first I wanted to share with you what I got in the mail yesterday!  The Summer issue of PRIMS magazine.  I am so honored and excited to have 3 of my OLM original designs in this issue!  Definitely a bright spot to my day!!


 I was reading the Letter from the Editor and was shocked and excited to see I received a mention in her letter!!!  Oh happy day!

 Then the girls!  Once they come home from their travels they will be for sale if anyone is interested.  Email me for info and their adoption fee.
THEN, I have worked on one little thing.... Out front, I don't have a porch, oh so want a porch, oh so can't afford a porch...LOL... BUT, I wanted to change things up this year.  Decided I would like to add a little farm table.  Now it's barely protected with the over hang, So it needed to be cheap so I wouldn't care once it fell apart....
 So here it is before... it's OK, always looks great with all my flowers during the summer....
 But, My GF Sandy that has Poppy Seeds Primitives had this farm table, and she gave me a great deal... So on Saturday off I went to pick it up and hit a couple of barn sales too, for some  R&R!  Then I came home and gave it a couple of good coats of varnish to help protect it some...   Still needs some work, but I like where it's going...
Since taking this picture I have tucked another chair up to the table and took the yellow advertising bucket from the black chair on the step and put that on the table... LOVE IT!  All it needs is a prim runner and flowers!  Of course my neighbors are teasing me for putting a table out in my "yard" LOL... I do it just for them! LOL!  Gives them something to talk about! LOL
So there you have it, I am hanging in there!  I admit it hasn't been easy this last month, but it will get better it has too, my family needs me!  Enjoy the day! HUGS! OLM

Giveaway Winner Tomorrow and Early Work Update!

Happy Sunday everyone!  At least today the sun is out and warmer.. Yesterday was FREEZING cold and snow... Winter just doesn't want to go away!
First, I want to thank everyone for the emails, phone calls, advise, cards and most of all your thoughtfulness and friendship!  Blog friends are the best!  I am hanging in there.  There is a LONG way to go sadly, and it will take months to resolve some of the issues my sister's death left behind.  So I will probably still be MIA quite a bit, sadly. Truthfully it all makes my head hurt and going to try and not talk about  it as much too.  Though I am trying to get back to work, and did create 4 new Uncle Sam make-a-dos for my early work update.
BUT first tomorrow is tax day and mis-matched Florence is going home to someone!  If you haven't had a chance to enter my giveaway I had started before my sister's passing, today is the last day to do so.  Just click on Florence's picture on the left, go to that post, leave a comment and you are in!  That simple!


As for the Uncle Sam's they are here http://earlywork-primsbyoldeladymorgan.blogspot.com/2013/04/tax-day-update-april-15-th.html, if you would like to take a minute to peek.  Thank you again from the bottom of my heart! OLM
