My name is Pat. I am a WAHM of four, Grandmother of two.
Our family lives on a Farm/ Nursery in South Jersey.
I have been crafting, sewing, and doing needlework for many years. I did my first craft show 16 years ago. I continue to sell my crafts in local shops, on eBay, Etsy, the Handdid Market, and my website, www.ahlcoopedup.com.
I offer handmade Raggedies, ornies, door greeters, shelf sitters, gatherings, and many seasonal Prim/Country items. Snowmen will always be my favorite!
Thanks for stopping by.
Mark your calendars. The Old Fashioned online Christmas craft show hosted by Old road primitives will be Nov. 11, 12, and 13. This sweet ginger will be one of my offerings. I have 4 finished and listed on my website and Etsy. I'm holding one back for the on line show. All my items for sale will be discounted for all my blogger friends. Please click on the right for all the info. This is going to be lots of fun!
I made this Ginger using a pattern by Kats Country prims.
It's been a while since I've posted. I've busy making, shipping and listing stuff. This pile was larger on Monday!
I want to thank all my wonderful customers and blogger followers. I'm going to give away a set of my best seller. Three of my Prim Santa hat tucks.
The rules are simple. Reply to this post for one entry, and post it on your blog for a second entry. Make sure I know where to find ya!
Winner will be chosen on Nov. 5th. My sons 30th birthday. I should be able to remember that day.
First I want to say that my craftshow was a huge success. I broke my all time record for sales. So much so, that I was too busy to get my camera out and take pictures. Needless to say, I'll be going back next year, as long as my son doesn't get married on that day.
Next, I want to show you my new favorite antique. My father gave this to me on Monday. I just love it! He's had it forever, and I always wanted it. My siblings would poo-poo it anyway! LOL.... I think it will be my new favorite Christmas decoration. It would make an awesome tree topper, or sit on my antique desk with a prim h/c carrot and old mittens. It's out now, and will stay on my desk.
Wouldn't Frosty would be proud to wear this hat? The spectacles were my Grandfathers, the clock was from an old light house that a distant relative lived in. The Ladys desk came from our old historic church. They were throwing it away in the early 1970's and my father rescued it. They used to serve communion from it. It still has the tack holes all around from where they would tack a skirt to it. The top is one board, which shows how old it is.
Just a few of my favorite things!! I love things with history. New just can't compare. I'm getting to be that way too. I'm full of history.
