Where Have I disappeared Too?????

Just a quick little post... 
I have been away.... I have gotten back to creating some, which feels sooo good! 
Long over due!  Looking for my Joy... I am finding my center again... 
It really has been a long road... Long than I would of ever thought...

So these days so many things keeping me on the run. 
I am please with my little olde shop and the response, I have to admit, I was very nervous and scared to take this leap again.
It's been a good leap!

I have settled into my routine with helping my dad.. That keeps me on the run some days... 
AND....
Our son Steven bought his first house!
He started looking in January, in the brutally cold winter... 
we hiked through A LOT of snow, and looked at lots with next to no heat... BRRR...This kept us busy most weekends... 

BUT, finally in March he put in a offer and after couple of months of  'things' I won't go into... 
He closed on May 30th!
We are so excited for him... some days... I feel like there is 3 houses I am overseeing/helping with... YIKES!  and mine is the last to get any attention! LOL
So it needs work... Yes, the previous homeowners where not kind to the house when they left..
As I type this hubby and Steven are working on replacing some of the hardwood floors that was damaged by water after they took the garbage disposal and left the sink leak.... 
crash course in fixing up a fixer upper... 
It will be a great home for him and will leave the nest once he gets a few more things fixed up...
I think it has great curb appeal.  It's hard to tell looking at this the painting and such the outside needs... he will become a very good painter by the time he's done!

 Here's a snap shot from last weekend.  BFN Nadine came out and pulled a few weeds for him.
 Time to destroy, I mean replace some flooring.  He was oh so lucky to find replacement flooring to match.  Saved him lots of money there!... I see the hot dog mans feet, he was very kind to come and start patching the million and half holes in the walls for Steven!
No, Knuckle's has not been for a visit yet... to many nails everywhere...
 Dave doing a little supervising of the work....

I have been out picking for the shop... Finding a few too many goodies I want to keep... So that means, I need to take more out of the OLM homestead... 
At some point I will need to take a few pictures of my finds of late... BUT... I have had no time to place them, display with them, sadly... BUT, I will soon!

BUT, I did make a mess to get the wonderful old prim basket to go under my pie safe... 
Got to love cropping! if you only saw the mess around this! LOL!
I even have a "extra" goose neck love seat in my front room... SIGH!  
I am trying real hard to get Steven to let me keep it...
I don't know if anyone remember the story of my love seat rocker from the estate sale from a couple of summer's ago... Love the rocker, as does hubby....
I asked Steven was there anything from the homestead he would like...He wanted the rockers... I said that WASN'T going to happen!  LOL...
You wouldn't believe it, but that weekend I found another at a  estate sale for him!  Talk about luck!  I think if I had the room, I would of kept it... But I don't... He claims my taste has not rubbed off on him... BUT, I think that is NOT completely true! LOL
So that is all OLM has for now.  I so hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day! OLM

Meet BeBe! My Latest OLM Original Design

Oh Happy June!  
Where is the timing flying too???
It is moving to quickly...isn't it?
I have been slowly, painfully slow... that is
creating... I have many dolls in different 
stages of being created.  
They are begging to come to live... and there is just not enough hours in
the day it seems...
BUT... Here is 
BeBe!
I think she is a hoot! 
What about you?
She is a big gal... 
AND... YES,
 She is looking for a home...
 BeBe is about 26" long and her sweet face is about 9" wide... wild wool hair..
Her nose is a scrap of old feather bed ticking along with her arms and legs...
 Old buttons from my collection for her eyes..
Old sweet baby slip for her dress that I grungy up..
AND... do you remember to old block/beads with holes to make necklaces when we where kids?
Few old wood beads around her neck...
Here is a quick shot of her stubbly little feet hiding under her dress..
If you would be interested in adopting her or would like any additional details on her. Please email me at folkart94@msn.com
Kindly asking $65.50 and travel fare for BeBe. 
She is a OLM OOAK original design
