I’m Laura, owner of Appleberry Cottage. I love to share my primitive stitchery, primitive punch needle, hand crafted folk art, and heirloom crocheted baby afghans with you.
When I'm not crafting, I'm mom to 4 kids: Andrew, Matt, Rachel (17 yrs old), and James (12 yrs old).
I finally got my fall/harvest decorations out. I look at our old tattered, and faded scarecrow that needed replacing. I didn't want another $5 cheap one, but something a little different. After a trip to Menards for a few pumpkins, hay and corn stalks, I was ready to create a new scarecrow. I took the wood cross pieces from the old one, added some old kid jeans, shirt, a bandana from the scout campout last weekend, and a straw hat. I still used the face from the old one, but might change that later on. Now to get some mums for on top of the hay.
I found a deal at Aldi's tonight. A new papercutter for $ 9.99. Of course Matt had to try it out.
