~A gift from Carol at Firecracker Kid Primitives ~

Hi Friends,

Sorry I have been away a few days! Been busy gearing up for the holidays and that means basically tearing the house apart so I can put it back together. O.O Yikes! What a mess!

Last Friday I came home to a package from the wonderful Carol at Firecracker Kid Primitives! She is so sweet. If you remember a couple weeks ago in this post on here blog she made this cute candle board all by herself with power tools!!! (Go Carol!)And she tried her first go at combing paint. (Go Carol!) Well I thought she did an amazing job and I loved it… and said so! So she asked if I would like it. Well DUH! Who wouldn’t one a piece from Carol and Tim’s shop? It arrived safely on my door step along with a few other treasures… Take a look at how she spoiled me…

The OOAK candle board from Carol! Loving! The combing is so pretty! I have to grunge some candles and then this is going up!


The most adorable little pin keep. Awwww. I was so happy she sent this. I have 2 pin keeps besides this one so now it’s official... I have a collection! :) YAY! I NEED more!!!!!!! (Isn’t that how it always works.)


This handmade trivet. So cute. And super useful. It will be a kitchen staple.


And last the cutest little bear and bunny card you have ever seen. SO adorable. :)


Thank you so much Carol for being such a great friend and sharing your amazing talents with me. You are such a kind person and I appreciate you so much. :) Thank you!!!

If you haven’t been to Carol’s personal blog or Selling Blog or Etsy… stop over and say hello by clicking those words above! She is making some of the most adorable combed cupboard tucks right now!

So cute!

She is also sending Tim to set up their Wood Good’s at Angie’s from Just a Little Raggedy’s Open House in Prospect, Ohio on December 3rd. So if you want to take a peek at their woodshop creations, or want to order something and pick it up at the open house… here’s your chance. I am ordering a shelf… and who knows what else! Don’t miss out! 

I also have some other stuff to share with you, like a visit with Earlene from Primitive Passion Decorating… but I will have to get to that tomorrow! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Until Next time…

Carmen and the Primcats

What great gifts you received! I'm in the same mode around here, cleaning and getting ready for Thanksgiving. Our first "happy" holiday in 2 years. Last year hubby was in Afghanistan and the year before that he was getting ready to leave us. Hope you have a good day also Carmen!

Yes, it will all be on us too soon. I love the holidays but it is a lot of preparation. Like my preschool fingerplay--it takes sooooooo long to get here and it's over in a snap!
Love your gifts from Carol. She and Tim are awesome woodworkers, aren't they? I am fortunate to have won a giveaway a while back and I love it.
They will add a lot to Angie's Open House. I'm so glad they are setting up. It will be good for them all. Wish I could be there!
