Struggling Along!

Well, my range still isn't fixed, but I've been making do! I've been using my microwave for all my staining and drying. Had to compromise on a few things, but on a couple of things that I make I actually like the way it turns out in the microwave much better! So I'll be using it even after my range is finally fixed.

Through it all I've been using my electric skillet, the crock pot and the outside grill for well as my large collection of "TAKE OUT MENUS". LOL! I've discovered a couple of really good crock pot recipes and a NOT so good microwave cake in a mug recipe! E--U! LOL!

I've been busy with my orders, but I've also been able to sneak in a few other things. I just listed LOTS of new pin keeps over on my Olde Annie Primitives website! Here's just a few, so if you get a chance, go check them out in my "Pin Keeps" category.

I've also started listing a few of my wonderful finds along the way and will be listing lots more. Check those out in my "Attic Finds" category!

Nice heavy four pedestal courting candle above and old unique square base potato masher below!

And, I am adding more candle mats to my site! I just LOVE how this one stained my microwave!

Celebrated my youngest son's 13th birthday on Monday. So, we once again have a teenager in the house! Oh happy day! (Could you hear the sarcasm in my voice?) LOL! Actually, Justin is the sweetest son a mom could ask for. I could have a dozen teenagers in my house if they were all like him!

And finally, I will be sending out my monthly newsletter tonight! It will contain a free pattern, discount offers and the names of two lucky winners for my monthly ornie giveaway! I didn't get a newsletter out last month, so I will be drawing TWO names tonight. So if you haven't already, make sure to sign up to receive my newsletter over there in the right column!

Hope your March is off to a great start! Spring is in the air!! Whoohoo! ~~Annie
