Primmies, it was a fun couple of weeks while it lasted. I
decided to get my gifts this year from my blogging world.
My sister was born in Charleston, SC and she's a true
Southern gal. No matter where she lived her heart was
always in South Carolina. She's back there now and what
a gorgeous house she and hubby bought. Nana Glen Oaks
is living with them now. She missed my sister terribly and
we had many years together. Now she will enjoy the rest
of her time with us with her oldest baby. I got off track,
sorry. So this is a gift for my sister that I thought she'd love.
She's in the Daughters of the Confederacy so this is perfect:
This is the "Civil War Journal" by Jean of Primcrafts. The journal jacket is just like a leather well-worn journal that a soldier would have kept on him. There is a letter on
parchment by "Abigail" to her beloved. Inside are more parchment pages antiqued to look like very old paper.
There is a real feather quill pen tucked inside the top.
It can't be described to do it justice. When you hold it you
feel like you really have a piece of history in your hands.
I love it Jean. You did a fantastic job.
Tomorrow I will post some more photos of work by our
favorite blogger artists. It will include a floral from
Sheila at Seasons Of Thy Heart. Be sure to see her new
offerings for the season at her selling blog Country Impressions. And I also shopped for my Ashley with
Brenda at The Rusty Thimble.
I have to close now. I've posted my little prim heart out
today and read the blog updates and I'm pooped. Just
cleaned up the kitchen from dinner and I'm dragging
myself to the shower. I was in the rubble of my craft room
digging and looking for things and it hurt my back and
neck. So I'll stop for the day on a happy note.
Stay warm (or cool if you are South of me),
