What I like best….

It's a nice, peaceful day today…. actually, all my days are nice and peaceful.  I like it like that.  The past few days I've been just taking my time to piddle around the house and plan some new designs.  As well as mail out orders.
 Last week, I opened my new "Dry Goods " store on the Cinnamon Creek site .  I love being able to create some different, more "farmhouse" things, PLUS I have made some fun new usable bags and totes.

 These are some new pillows that I just finished up this morning.  I'll have to say….these things are what I like best !    I just love creating things with old graphics .  I've got a million and one ideas floating around in my head - I can't wait to get started !
 I"ll be on the hunt for more good old rustic and farmhouse things as well in the coming days.   I'll share more with you soon.  Until then……….
                                            ENJOY EVERY SECOND OF YOUR DAYS !

It's been awhile….

Well, Hello There !

I can't believe it's been almost a year since I have posted here.  I just had so much going on, I had to drop a few things.  This past year has been full of so much joy and good changes for me. I have moved from my little apartment to the farm that I often spoke of in past posts.  I now live in a very special place with the love of my life and all my sweet little creatures !  Yes, I live in a very fine  farmhouse again !

It's been a couple of months since I moved to the farm and  the house is coming along wonderfully !  It's  such a sweet little home to begin with , but we've added on a great space for me and my work. I look forward to sharing it all with you as it comes along.

Ahhh…. Its such a  great feeling to finally be settled.  I can finally get back to focusing on creating. It's what I love to do more than anything. It's my life !   Today, I am posting pics of my "inspiration station" ….  A perfect little space that my Jeff built for me.  I AM INSPIRED !

My calling card , along with a few little treasures…. The MUSTANG emblem is a 1965 ~  The car that he had when we were dating in high school .  
" BEFORE "   Whitewashed walls ,shelving  and cupboard.  I wanted to paint it all the same to make the space feel bigger.  The desktop is old barn wood .

My beautiful mess !   Don't mind the phone…ha !  I have a brand new "retro" phone on the way .
Just a closer view.

I love little trinkets mixed in with my needful things.

rusty-crusty-patina-naturals- paper-old- ironstone……all the things I love !

Little herb boxes that I create - can be found in my "Dry Goods Store"

On a sad note…. we lost our " Abraham" goat last week unexpectedly.  He was 1 1/2 years old . Full of spunk and love.
I copied this picture and mounted it on the clipboard.   A little while later as I was sifting through my treasure box of little papers and such, I found the stamped note ( which amuses me every time I see it )  . It seemed very appropriate to hang it by my little buddy.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit with me.  It's so great to be back here and I'll be posting much more in the future.  House things, Cinnamon Creek things ……Good things !!!

Enjoy your day ,  Dru Ann

Farmhouse Ladies ...

Good Wednesday to you ! 
Perhaps you've seen these ladies before ?  It's been awhile since I've made any - but, I'm back at it again.  These are my ABSOLUTE favorite dolls to make.  They just fit in perfectly with everything that I love.  A doll that's not too cute, A very lovely lady doll with interesting accouterments that adorn them. They look like they have a story to tell.   I love them tucked in a cupboard, atop a mantle, or atop a shelf with rustic, vintage goods.  My brain is a buzzin' with other things to go along with the line this year.... I'm having a ball getting it all going !  So..... off, I go !  Back to seeing how much I can get done these next few days.  BTW... I will now be calling these "Farmhouse Ladies " ( formerly known as kinfolk dolls )
I'm fairly certain that they'll be making their appearance here at my Fine Farmhouse very soon !
