I don't know about you, but I usually have several irons in the fire, so to speak, when I am crafting. Right now I have a penny rug going, some mice I have been working on and I just finished a countertop holder my husband built for me the other day. Poor guy, woodworking is not one of his favorite pasttimes, but I seem to manage to involve him in a project from time to time. SO...I thought I would share a couple of pictures with you of this latest project as I am really pleased with how it turned out. I don't have the patience or eye for great picture taking but I think you will get the idea of what it looks like.

If you are interested in making one of these for your own kitchen, the pattern and instructions can be found on The Pickled Pepper Patch Blog and they are FREE. The labels I used on my jars can be found at Blue Cupboard Primitives, or you could easily make your own if you so choose.

I am so excited that I just have to share the newest addition to my primitive collection. I just won the cutest ladybug from a giveaway on TDIPT Mercantile celebrating their 4th birthday. She was made by one of their very talented artists, Annette, of Confounded Concoctions.

I just couldn't wait to share my newest addition to my Easter/Spring primitive collection. This bunny was made by my dearest friend, Kim, of Old Road Primitives. Doesn't he have the cutest face you have ever seen on a bunny! Although Kim and I have never met, we have formed a great online friendship and are kindred spirits loving all things primitive. If you would like to check out her other handmades and patterns, or make a Bopsy of your own, you can find them at You won't be sorry...her patterns are some of the best I have used.

Thank you, Kim. I just love Bopsy!!!
