A big time at the Barn Sale !

We had the opportunity over the past weekend to be a part of a new Barnsale in our town.  Actually, right down the road from where we live !   It was Gypsy Moon Marketplace at Highland Stables and let me tell you…. It was awesome !    I can't wait until the next one in the spring ! 

 A pic of our stall almost finished…we added more goodies the next morning before we got mobbed !
 Jeff is building some awesome furniture.  We're so pleased at the response we got. This farmhouse cupboard has sold -  He'll be working on some custom orders plus new pieces soon.  I'm so proud and excited !
This is our new zinc top table that we are making… I'll get better pictures in a few days and share more with you soon.  We'll be opening a new space at a local Antique Mall later this week, so , we have much to do.    It's nice to be back to blogging and actually have some fun things to blog about !   ( smiles )…… Have a wonderful day and I'll be back soon……………………Dru Ann

Time for a cool change ….


Back in March, I spent about 3 weeks on the couch with a bad round of the flu. There was whole lot of daydreaming during that time - wishing and wanting to do something new with my work.   Well, I have bounced back and….. YES , Daydreams do come true !  
Although I've dabbled in bags and jewelry before - I took some time to learn some new ways and techniques, and I must say, I'm very pleased with my results !   

Last week, the first batch of my "DirtBags" was introduced on my picturetrail site.  A line of rugged ~ vintage style ~ aged ~ waxed canvas bags/purses/pouches  adorned with fun "found" accessories.  The "Trinket Necklaces" are fun as well .

 SO very thrilled with the response !    My head is spinning with more ideas and I'm creating up a storm on more designs ~ Both bags and jewelry.   I just love working with all this stuff !  It's a nice change of pace from the same old things that I've made for so many years.   I haven't felt this inspired in many, many years !    
 Perhaps you'll like what I'm doing too …..  I will continue to create bears and other fitting goods as I go along, but, all with a whole new attitude ~ a cool change  !    ~ A new website is in the works too ~   right now, you can still visit me on the Cinnamon Creek picturetrail.   I'll let you know when the new site is up.
Wishing you all a FABULOUS Day!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting

Farmhouse Bedroom

Yes, it's been a long time !  I won't go into any excuses, I've just been busy and blogging has been the last thing on my mind.  Spring is here in Southern Kentucky and I'm just having a good  'ol time working on the house and making lots of plans for it.  

Today, I just wanted to share my little bedroom.  I do love the clean, yet rustic look of all of it.  It just makes me happy !  I'm actually just beginning to decorate it.  As, many of the items you see in these pictures will be for sale on this evenings' website update.   I just figured , since I had all of these fun things to offer , why not set up a room and show it all off , right ?  

I just love little aged, white dresses and hanging putting things where least expected.

Why, yes….. doesn't everybody have pitchforks in their bedroom ?   ( smiles )

I've made these for years.   I've got a few made up and ready to go.

I love my simple life !

The desk was my Mommas' ~  I've always enjoyed displaying my favorite things on it.

Sweet vintage bottles with fun prints and labels.

Jeff just made my bed using old whitewashed fenceposts for the legs.  He made the heart too !  The bed cover came from Target.  I love the ragged look of it !

An old fan that we just found on a recent outing, A doll I just finished made from vintage cloth, oh, and elephant too !

Yep !

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me at the farmhouse !   Be sure to stop by Cinnamon Creek tonight at 6:00 ( central time) for many new handmade and vintage offerings .

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.

Handstamped Cinnamon Creek Tags in a treen bowl

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
