~A Day at the Fair~

**Update**
Despite the cloudy and rainy weather, I've taken pics of Miss Merry.
Here is a link to both
Ebay auctions:

My Ebay Auctions








Starting today, and all through the week on Ebay, TDIPT (To Dwell in Primitive Thymes), will be having a group launch. Here is a link to the group's Ebay offerings:




The theme for the launch is "A Day at the Fair". I've made two items for auction this week that are "Fair" related. One is more "whimsical" than the other. The first offering is a watercolor painting of a sheep. The sheep was a lot of fun to paint. I'm not sure why, but I have a "thing" for sheep! I have a small flock scattered around our home as decoration.
~*~*~*~*~

The second offering is Miss Merry. And yes, she is very whimsical! I had fun creating her too....you can only imagine the comments I kept getting from my boys! But after I painted her face, her "cherry-headed-ness" won them over.

Here is a little poem about Miss Merry, written mostly by my husband (with a little help from me), after I woke him from his afternoon/weekend nap to ask for help!

~Miss Merry is Quite a Cherry~
(a compilation of sweetness and silliness by two cherry lovers)

Miss Merry had always loved cherries,
They were her favorite treat.
She loved them because they were round and red,
And she loved them because they were sweet.

All recipes calling for cherries,
Miss Merry would happily try.
But of all the ways she prepared them,
Her favorite was cherry pie.

At the State Fair she entered her pastry.
And waited for each judge to taste.
In the end, when the votes had been tallied,
Miss Merry was given 1st Place.

Hi Suzanne...hope you had a lovely long weekend. Ow, I love your sheep, what a sweet little guy he looks like. I had sheep growing up, he reminds me of one of mine.

Love your doll, she is so whimsical and sweet, lots of creativity there. You will have great luck with these I'm sure.

Sorry to hear about the death of your Clematis. : ( Who knows, wackier things have happened, maybe it really didn't like your BBQ.

I have a "flock" in my house too- I'd love to have some real ones outside, but hubby says he doesn't want to feed them during the arctic months of January and February.... and I'm not doin' it either, so the indoor flock has to do.

Miss Merry Cherry is really sweet- she certainly cheers my heart!
