Just another day in Primitive Heaven

My beautiful sunflowers are blooming like crazy!!! Since we moved to British Columbia last fall I wasn't sure if sunflowers would grow in our very sandy soil...but they are!!! Growing above the roof tops!

This vulture is from a pattern design from Donna Veal at Moonchilds Primitives. I just love this pattern, and I think it turned out so realistic! You will see some additions to the vulture, the hat, and crow are from patterns from Becky from Tennessee Ridge Primitives, the bat is from a pattern from R&K Creations...another very creative pattern designer...and the pumpkin...well I'm sorry I just forget where it came from, but I did use an actual stem that I had saved from the year before! I put them all together and voila...I ended up selling this whole piece together for $55.

From Becky at Tennessee Ridge Primitives...this pattern is one of her Valentines PatternsAnd this is my take on one of her patterns that she made in a snowman hat, but I used this lovely old tin can!
If you are a primitive lover like need to check out these two websites

both of these gals are wonderful primitive artists...their designs are the greatest prims ever!!! Both gals offer free patterns. I have learned so much from both Becky and Donna. I have bought their patterns, and made their products.
I hope you will visit their sites often!!!
Happy Fall Prim Lovers!!!
