Bridget Bishop ~ by RKCreations

Karen of R&K Creations has outdone herself on this witch doll she has created. I sent her a message as soon as I saw her and told her that I wanted to blog about her!
Karen says she knew she wanted to try her hand at making a witch and sat down to do some research on the famous "Salem Witch Trials".
Once she started reading about Bridget Bishop.....she knew that was who she was going to base her creation on.
Check out Karen's auction and learn all about this woman who was accused of being a witch and had to pay with her life!
She would make an incredible addition to your Autumn decor.....go check out the auction!
Thanks Karen! I wish you the best of luck...... she is WICKED! ;)

What a little treasure this website is!!!!
You know how someone will mention something and its not always something that is usually "YOU"?
Well that is actually what happened with this website.
More and more folks were mentioning this lady and her cute dolls. She sells patterns and even EPatterns! I thought.....well...... she creates dolls that aren't my usual style. She is new member to the Primmart community and has been such a cheery soul in her posts......I had to go check out her site.
WOW! She has some really wonderful doll patterns! She also let me know that she is working on some new ones as well. So take a few moments and go take a good look around.
You will find something to make you smile!
Tell her Cedara sent you over!
Prim Blessings!

Blog Challenge ~ part 2


That is another collection that I have and just can't stop myself from adding to it. My father and grandmother both have an extensive collection. When my grandmother sold her home, her collection was broken up amongst the family members. I chose the amber bottles from her and my sister got to have all the blue ones. My collection also include such finds as this rare perfume bottle with the old fashioned label still on. Small pharmacy bottles in my collection as well..... blue poison bottles being my fave to find!

Antique bottle come in every shape and size. Seeing them clustered on a shelf or displayed in a window.....just makes me smile.

Blog Challenge #1 - Show your collection

Some of us that "blog" were given a challenge! We were to post and share a picture of something we collect. This was really tough for me! LOL
I collect a few different things and couldn't narrow it down to just one thing. So I am actually going to share 2 of my faves with you.........


Oh how I adore this holiday and all the fun that comes with it. I have just a small amount of my collection showing in this photograph. I always had such a hard time with packing it all away for another year that I opted to find a way that I could display special aspects year round.
I asked Eric's father if he would make me a bookcase. He is so very talented and I knew he'd make me something amazing. When I told him that I needed a bookcase shaped like a coffin.....he rolled his eyes and laughed at me....but he built it!LOL

It makes for quite the conversation piece!!! LOL
