Good Morning! Sorry it is taking me so long between posts. My husband and I have been traveling to find some new prims for our fall open house. Yes fall. Its hard to believe that that our fall open house is only 4 month away. We have some wonderful new items that we will have at our fall open house. We are also working on new garden primitives. I will be posting these this week. Most of our hand made items are selling before I don't know if anyone can tell me what the purple flower is? It has numerous 6 point star flowers that combine to make a realy large flower. It is about 5-6 inches in diameter. If anyone knows what it is, please let me know. We also will be making more of our sap pails with vine handles and homespun. I Today is beautiful and sunny. A perfect day for our granddaughters 2nd birthday party. Just a reminder, The Crows Corner will be closed over Memorial Day Weekend I hope everyone has a happy, safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend! .

Hello, I wanted to share a few items with you. My wonderful husband is at an auction tonight so I can't wait to see what wonderful treasures he brings home to share with you. (That's if I can let them go, lol.) I never seem to have enough hours or energy to finish everything I want. I have about 15 projects started, so I will try to get these posted here and on our online store as soon as they are done! We have this wonderful trench bowl. It is 13 inches wide, 28 1/2 inches long and 5 1/2 inches deep. This primitive trench bowl would look great anywhere in your home. I have it stuffed with small vintage quilt pillows.

Next we have an old metal cooking pot with handle. It measures 12 inches in diameter. We are selling this for $15.00. I found this wonderful little bench that looks handmade.

Some other items are are small primitive bee keeps, they sell for $6.00 each. We have numerous jugs and crocks for sale. This one is a favorite of mine and is selling for $30.00.

Newest Addition & Happy Mothers Day

Happy Saturday Afternoon! The sun is trying to peek through the clouds, but that wind is something else. Well we finally got the shop put back together and am working on more primitive items. We also will have some new garden items. I will try to list pictures and prices on the blog and our online store.
One thing that I wanted to share with those of you who knew we lost our two precious dogs within two months of each other. Remember I was the one that said I didn't think I could go through with the pain and loss again. Well meet our newest member of the family. His name is Koda, he is 4 year old and is a rescue dog. He was abused and came to us will a broken tail,broken cartilage in his ear, heart worm positive and shaved due to flea infestation. I not sure if he rescued us or we rescued him. He is an absolutely wonderful dog. We feel very blessed that this little guy was sent our way. And so far it looks like that heart worm treatment is working.
I also want to wish everyone a Happy Mothers Day and to my mom.....If roses grow in Heaven Lord, pick a bunch for me. Place them in my Mother's arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her that I love and miss Her and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while. Remembering her is easy, I do it every day. There's an ache inside my heart that will never go away. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, MOM!!!!!
