I hope everyone is getting a taste of spring, I know I was sure ready for winter to end, it was cold and long.  We are expecting some 30 degree temps here a couple of nights this week, but for the most part the trees and allergies are in full bloom.  I sure wish my flowers would grow as well as the weeds do in my beds, been out pulling all weekend, and need to do much more.  I love this time of the year playing in my flower beds, Oliver seems to really love flowers also, wants to pick them, planning on giving him an area to have a wild flower garden with lots to pick.  Well my New Beginnings is that Green Creek Primitives has joined Early Works Mercantile, starting April 15th we will be sharing our creations every month on the 15th.  The lil bluebird in the picture is actually part of a creation my sister, Lisa has come up with, hope you can stop by and check out what we have been doing.  I have some sad news also my friend Bonnie, she has the shop Primitive Gatherings, in Kingsport, Tn. is closing her shop. I went up recently to visit with her and of course check out her goodies in her shop, yes I came back with the van loaded, will share pics of my new goodies when I get them all up.  Hope everyone has a good week, thanks for stopping by and visiting with me.  Vicky

Well Spring has finally arrived, been a long cold winter here. still expecting some readings next week at night around upper 20's, but the calendar says it is officially spring so I have been creating some new items to decorate with.  Sunday, March 23rd at 7 pm est. I will have an update here on my blog, hope you can stop by to see what has been going on in my sewing room.  Actually tomorrow is a special day also, it would have been my dad's 83rd birthday, he is the one I started the blog for in remembrance of my days spent with my dad in his antique shop growing up, my dad had this deep down love of old, and he has passed it down to me.  My blog is named after the town my dad was born in,  Green Creek, NC, so it will be a real special treat to share with you the prim things I love to create on this special day, hope you will join me then.  Vicky

 This little bunny measures 9" tall, she actually is made from a bottle, my sisters design, asking 32.00 plus 5.00 shipping.

Oliver had his first haircut last weekend, seemed really interested in driving the race car, really neat idea to entertain kids while cutting their hair.
Oliver wasn't real sure when she started cutting around his ears, but he loves his new big boy haircut, he is growing so fast can't believe he will be 3 in a couple of months.  Vicky


Thought I would share a picture of Oliver from last weeks snow, we got around 8 inches with some sleet, this Oliver's first big snow, seemed to really enjoy it.  So with school out most of last week Oliver and his mom got to play in the snow, notice the snowman is wearing a Oliver hat.   This week is a different story it was 77 yesterday and will be in the mid 70's again today, you just never know from week to week, I have flowers budding already, I can't wait for spring, have spring fever really bad, actually went a couple of weeks ago and pulled out my spring box and pulled some tulips out and put around the house, made a real difference.  Working on some spring rabbits back soon with an update.  Everyone take care, VickyAdd caption

Oliver Baking cookies

Just wanted to share with everyone what I have been doing with my 2 and half year old grandson, Oliver today, yes our first baking cookie tradition has started.  He enjoyed cutting them out, we decided to make snowmen cookies today, and then after I iced them he picked out the decorations for them and done them all, so much fun watching him enjoy our first cookie baking tradition.  I think he liked the star decorations the best and of course the eating them.  Everyone have a great time this season enjoying your family, they grow up so fast.  Back hopefully with some decorating pictures this week.  Take care,  Vicky
