More Ribbon Doll Witches !

I've been having fun making 
these ladies and they've
already begun to sell in my shop .

The one on the left has sold already.
The one on the right still 
I will ship if you are interested .
( The price is 20.00 with 3.00 shipping )

They've all taken on personalities
of their own . 

They measure just under 3 feet long
from the point of her hat to the bottom
of her skirt. 
They look adorable with their 
skirt blowing ever so 
slightly in the breeze of a fan .

My Baby Girl Zoe Modeling My Hand Knit Doggie Sweaters

I couldn't ask for a better model  &
I truly think she enjoys modeling and
having her picture taken .

My sweaters are thick & warm &
cuddly . They will keep your dog 
toasty in the cooler months to come.

This fluffy sweater in shades of pink &
rose is actually way to big for my
Zoe and will fit a dog 12-18 lbs.

This lavender sweater fits Zoe but has room 
to spare and would fit a dog weighing up to 
12 lbs.

They are both available in my
Etsy shop .

cozy stocking hat and it's

I knit it with double and triple
strands of yarn to make 
this hat extra thick , cozy,
and toasty warm for this winter, 
It's 40" long !

My Witch Ribbon Doll

I know it's a little early 
for Halloween Witches &
things but I was totally
inspired by one of my friends
in a FB art group I 
belong to.

This was fun and so easy & I
know I'll be making a few more 
to sell at my little shop 
" Trinkets & Treasures ".

Yellow Plums 
Golden Plums 
Til a week ago I had never even
heard of them . 
I was lucky enough to be given
two heaping bowls full
of fresh picked plums & 
right away I knew I was going 
to make some jam !

I quickly started looking up recipes
for yellow plum jam and finally 
decided to use the one that sounded
best to me and also was flavored
with vanilla and cinnamon . 

My Jam came out perfect &
With all of the plums I was given 
I was able to make quite a few
pint size jars that I will now
store away for future gift giving 
and keep a couple for myself 
of course .

Have you been admiring my plants in the background ?

These clover plants are one of my new loves .

I bought a couple of these plants for a dollar 
a piece at a thrift store and I love them . 
I especially love the deep dark reddish purple 
ones with delicate white flowers ,  
they seem like they are constantly 
in bloom .
