Simple Ramblings From A Prim Cottage

Gobble Gobble

Ever feel like this? This is the time of year my mind gets confused.I'm not quite over the summer and the hunt for prim treasures.I'm getting in the nesting mood but one day is 70 degrees and the next 50 degrees and windy.I should be thinking spooky and candy and cute little goblins knocking at the door but I'm thinking christmas and snowmen.. Oh and add a little Turkeys and new recipes to add to the traditional Thanksgiving dinner.The image below reminds me of what is swirling around in my head.(smile)I'll get it right soon I hope.It's just as a crafter and seller and homemaker and decorater we always have to think two seasons ahead.And no matter how hard I try each year to enjoy each season and holiday I either get way ahead of myself or way behind.Maybe this year will be better.(doubtful) But I'm really gonna try to enjoy and savor every minute..Still can't wait for this.....
Thanksgiving is my one day of rest,peace and family gathering! Hubby makes the turkey and most sides,I make the desserts and bread the eve before so I can just savor this day.We have dinner at our house so no running.I think it is one of the best days of the year....I've been getting swap handdids done,christmas gifts ready and a few handdids to sell done.I can't show much yet as they are surprises,but here are what I've been making the past few days.Turkeys!!!!

Spiced rubbed primitive beeswax turkeys in spicy gingerbread scent.Yum they smell so warm
and cozy for fall.They are perfect to tuck in cupboards or bowls..These are brown but I'll be doing black as well.They are done with a vintage mold so they have a great early look.They self stand so they are just perfect.This is the first year I did these.I've done candles and wax pourings for about 15 years though and the creativity never ends for me.If you are interested in one for yourself check out my etsy shop (click button on side bar)....

The indian corn is available too..I'm making several of these for me to tuck in bowls and on shelfs.It's hard to find prim turkeys.

I finally found a menu chalkboard at a yardsale a few weeks ago.I wanted one for awhile and can't wait to write the Thanksgiving menu on it......

So monday I'll go up to the loft and pull out all my Thanksgiving decorating stuff and start dreaming of being like this......

Hope you all have a wonderful fall day.Harvest Blessings!~Amy

Your turkeys and corn look wonderful. I too am looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner with my family. I cook every year for my inlaws and my mom. It is definitely a family day and we love to reflect on how we have been so richly blessed throughout the year.

The turkey is very cool. I love the food, family and football of Thanksgiving.

I love your beeswax turkeys! I might have to get one along with some more of your wonderful corn!

Sorry to hear you had to miss a church sponsored activity. You'd think they would've had it indoors in his weather. It's not unexpected at this time of year!
Thanks for stopping over!
