That Scarey Halloween Eye is Mine for real~Ouch

Happy Halloween Everyone... Hope you all had a great time Seeing All the Scarey Ghost and Goblins over the weekend and tonight... So much fun to see kids out all dressed up having great fun Tricker Treating!! Even when the weather isn't so good they don't seem to mind.. The girls shared a little bag of there loot with me..Yummy!!
Couldn't spend much time with them tho seems I'm contagous..Yep something else to deal with the Scarey Halloween Eye..or at least that's what I'm choosing to call this new development...

Seems that Thyroid disease & Graves Disease has yet another side affect. You are more susceptible to infections such as Eye infections and sinus infections. Now the Sinus infections is an old friend of mine and I'm pretty used to them...but this new thing is awful, horrible, painful, ugly, scarey and plain down right annoying to say the least....It started in the right eye and we got it under control.. then I felt a sinus infection coming on so I was prepared.. I got this awful headache last Friday.. and the left eye started to bother me. It started swelling up like someone shot fluid all the way around it like like a little inner tube around my eye the size your your pinky. As you can see it turned black like someone punched me... so I applied cool packs to relieve the pain and swelling... I was sitting on the sofa sewing bonnets Friday night and the head ache was driving me nuts along with the eye ache so I gave up and went to bed.. Some time in the middle of the night I got this god awful pain in my eye that woke me up for a few minutes but I feel back to sleep.
When I woke up Saturday Morning my eye was so swollen it wouldn't back with the cool compresses and warm water wash till I was able to get it open .. I about had heart failure when I seen my eye... it was nothing but blood & icky stuff... so all day saturday it was warm water washes and cool compresses... Till finally I could get it open enough to take these pictures ... Really hard to take a picture of your own eye ball..hehe..
Needless to say my weekend plans were shot .. didn't get much stitching of bonnets done, didn't go to town to say Good Bye to many of my friends who left the Island for the winter and didn't get to go to the Toga party.. I did get lots of sleep which I know didn't hurt one bit... other then make me stiff... I cleaned my houses Sunday, then packed up most of my camper.. So I could start toting things home as the season winds down and comes to an end.
I'll be returning to the Island Two more times but can take just what I need for those over night visits and cleaning dates...
This morning I called the Eye Doctor, told him what was going on and he told me to get in there ASAP, so I packed up the van and headed off the Island and south...
When the Doctor seen me he was like Oh my God Tonya that's worse then I sure you didn't get punched in the eye this weekend... it sure looks like it ..... yea no kidding ..Nope did nothing all weekend but nurse this mess...
So he looks at it with his equipment to make sure no real damage and politely informs me I have a severe Infection in my eyes.. DUH.. I think I figured that one out what can we do about it...Antibiotic Eye Drops and Antibiotic pills cause you have a sinus infection as well... DUH.. I figured that one out too... Oh yea by the way you are very very contagous so stay away from people for at least 48 hours, wash your hands every time you touch your eyes, wash your eyes every hour or so with warm water and put these drops in 4 times a day ..see you back here on Friday...we have to get this under control ASAP...

I've had the worst year ever for stupid weird it never gona stop... I'm tired just remembering what pill to take, when and what drop to put in my eyes, when...Now wash my hads every 30 seconds as I wipe away a tear, wash my eyes every hour with warm water..put on a cool compress every hour for swelling and a warm compress to help soothe the eye..

Somebody send me a box of Calgon I need to soak in one of those Baths that take you away..LOL...
I'd go to LilAngies and sneak in her Whrilpool Tube but I'm contagious so that's out of the Question .....Darn don't that just stink..cause it would really feel good about now!!

You know what else really stinks? I would love to go work in the shop but I can't see worth a hoot so no point in going out I'm sure all the dust would just makes things much for creating this week or at least for a couple days..

I'll be uncontagous Thursday the day I have to go for a dentist appointment to fill another cavity.. Mr. Dentist will then poke needles in the roof of my mouth and make that hurt too..

If I could just unattach my head for a week..I could pluck my eye brows, feed it antibiotics, send it over to the dentist let him fix the parts he fixes, have it shipped back around Monday & all would be well.... but no instead my whole body has to suffer & be included in this whole matter that happens to be called my sick head...

I am laughing myself silly.....Wouldn't it be great if it were that simple?  Go ahead think about it and laugh with me...

Boo- Guess where I was last Night & what I did?

Halloween Greeting my Prim Friends... Can you guess what I was doing last night?  I've been just dieing to do it.. and finally last night I did? Have you figured it out yet?
One more hint.... Paint Brush!

Oh come on you really need another hint? Wood!
Yep finally I actually made it out to the shop...that nice clean organized shop to start creating. It wasn't much but it felt so darned good that I could have worked till today...wait I did work till today.. finally quit only cause I knew I had to sleep....It was 4:00 in the morning when I gave up and stepped outside.. You will never guess what I discovered when I went outside... Frost...Yep that nasty cold frozen Dew all over everything including my beautiful Angel Wing Begonia's.. and all my herbs... Burrrrrrrr... its been raining every time I've come home so haven't been able to pick and hang my herbs yet... Not to happy about that but ya gona do when they are soaked to the core with water.. they would just mold and go to waste so waiting patiently for a dry Autumn Day to pick and hang them to dry... We should get some Indian summer hopefully now that it has frosted here in good ole wet Ohio....

Anyway back to my fun night in the Shop... about 6:00 after running errands all day...having a bite to eat for supper and hanging with the kids all day... I decided that I wanted to go sit in my clean shop and create or at least get things rolling...
I turned on the Kerosene Heater to get the dampness and chill out of the room it was toasty by the time I sat down with paint brush in hand and my first wood shelf.. Put in a Rocky movie and away my hand went brushing on paint... I was in heaven.. I felt all the strain go out of my back and neck the longer I sat there was the best feeling I've had in a long time...I managed to get 11 things painted and 1 sanded ready to go when I get back this week from the Island...Of course the Peg Rack is what I sanded because I can't wait to create a gathering with one of the little Dresses I stitched...
I Finished all together. See the one shelf with the space in it...its going to be an old Crow Gathering..Already created it in my head while I was painting it...
1Window Pane
1-Peg Rack

How Do you like my Good Will Witch I found at GW on my way home Wednesday... She's just the cutest and she only cost me $1.50... She Witch laughs and talks too..
I had a great time stopping at all of the GW' on the way way of winding down...I found tons of goodies...It was 50% off at Salvation Army so I went a little nuts but what the heck I needed more stuff in the shop....NOT ..but it makes for a great excuse... and they will all become part of gatherings eventually!!

Last Weekend was Halloween on the Island and I dressed up of course and had a great time with all my friends.. We've done Halloween on the Island now for 13 years.. Boy have I aged a make that alot...but no problem so has everyone else..hehehehe!!

This was just 3 yrs ago.. Yikes ...What 3 much hard work, getting sick, The Graves Disease swelling my eyes & No make-up can do to a lady ...LOL...

Moving on---- Going to wash all the Bird Feeders here before I have to leave to go North to the Island...It's time to start feeding them again... especially now that it frosted... They have been stopping by to nibble a bite of Suet but they were all chirping for the real thing  the past two days...

I wish you all a wonderful weekend filled with happy moments and treasured memories!!

Happy Halloween

Mom Finished Organizing the Shop Take a Peek - Finished Dresses

Hi Mom's Prim Friends... Guess what? Mom finally finished organizing the shop yesterday.. She let me look at the pictures it looks real nice. She doesn't let me and Tasha go to the shop cause we accidentally knock stuff on the floor and break it even tho we don't mean to...its just so fun climbin all over everything..So she says we are banned forever...

 She says this is some of her Baskets, Stoneware Pitchers and Mugs, Tin Mugs & a few vintage Aprons!! These are just to the right as ya walk in the door.

This shelf is right next to the Stoneware rack in he right. She says it has all kinds of Stoneware Crocks on the bottom shelf, Stoneware Pitcher & bowl sets & Apothecary Bottles.

This is shelf has Stoneware Crocks, Glass Apothecary Bottles & Jars and a Rooster.
This shelf  butts up against the corner.

This where we got in trouble when we knocked some of her Stoneware off the last  & only time she took us to the shop with her...She has her dried Herbs from her Herb Garden on the bottom shelf.

Then on the shelves above she has variety of her Little Stoneware Crocks. On the top she has all her dried Beans stored in a lot of Apothecary Jars. All of the drawers are filled with Stoneware Plates, Bowls & wood Books. This Cupboard is on the back wall of the shop to the right.
Next to this cupboard on the back wall she has wire cubes like in the storage area in the barn filled with wood Shelves, open faced cupboards, Peg Racks, Cutting boards, Firkin Boxes, Keeping Racks & other misc wood items to be Primed.

This Rack is on he end of a wood Shelf going down the center of the room. It divides the front from the back so she can walk all the way around the room to get what she needs.

She has all kinds of Kitchen utensils like Graters, Metal Spoons, Cookie Cutters, Mini Wash boards, Strainers.
Sittin here on the floor is a bucket of old Wood Rolling Pins, Spoons, Spatulas.

This is the first shelf going down the center of the room with the Rack of goody's on the end..
She's got all her Tea Stained Quilt Pieces rolled up and stacked real nice along with her Tea Stained Homespun.
This is another place Me & Tasha got in trouble for climbing up and trying to sleep on her good stuff.......Instead we pulled it off on the floor. that's when she took us back in the house and said we couldn't come out anymore... So now we watch for her out the trailer window...
Next to this shelf is an open space between two shelf units, where she puts her kerosene Heater to keep warm in winter...

Now this shelf has all kinds of stuff on it.. Dried Herbs, Bath Salts, Oatmeal, Powdered Milk, Flour, Dried Tea, Coffee Beans, Paints, Candle Sticks, Candle Stick Lamps, Little Mini Wash Tubs & Buckets.
That little White thing to the left with drawers is filled with Labels, Doily's, & Wall Paper Borders,
to the right she took away that shelf and made an open space for her heater for winter.

This shelf had all her Vintage Hand Towels, Tea Stained Towels & Tea Stained Fabric on it but she took it all off and put it in cubes on the end wall beside her TV & VCR player...& the Apothecary Bottle Shelf.
Now her heater sits between those two shelves.

This big shelf was a big No No for Me and Tasha......Mom has all of her vintage Apothecary Spice Bottles, Vintage Medicine Bottles, Milk Bottles, Vases, Glass Globes, Wood Candle lamps, & misc Candle Lamps with Globes.
This shelf is on the end wall to the left and goes to the right back corner of the shop. Next to this shelf to the left is cubes. She has all her Tea Stained Hand towels & Fabric in the first set of cubes. Next to them in the next set of cubes she has her TV & VCR.....In the next set of cubes she has some Plastic containers with some of her hand dipped Spice Rolled Candles, Containers of Dried Fruits, Containers of Dried Bread loaves, containers of Pip Berry rings.

This shelf is Behind the shelf with all the Herbs facing the cubes filled with all her wood supplies used to create her gatherings. On the top of this shelf she has containers filled with Eggs of all kinds. On the second shelf she has all her vintage Sewing Supplies. On the two bottom shelves she has assorted Vintage Candle Stick Lamps.

This Rack hangs on the back of the Shelf with all her Quilt & homespun. It has her Enamelware Pots, Pans, Skillets, Strainers & some other misc. stuff for her gatherings. Right beside it is another Rack where she hangs all those prety little dresses she makes & little Baby shoes she uses in her gatherings.

Now Mom can walk all the way around to get what her needs to create them beautiful gathering she makes... I think she's real happy about how it all turned out..

This Mom's work station which is now organized she forgot to take a new picture... guess she was getting tired or somethin...Above her she has all here Pip Berry Garland hanging.
Under her desk she has a cart with drawers filled with her hand dipped Candles and handmade Oatmeal soap..
On the shelf to the right is all of her books, paper journals, labels, Small Mirrors, Small Wood Frames.
On the shelf on the right she has all her small Candle sticks she uses.
To the right of her work station is where she takes all her pictures. She has a Table and an old piece of Barn Siding hanging above it.

Remeber the dresses Mom's been working on all last week ..? Well got prety close to reaching her goal of 10 dresses... She told me she can't wait to create a gathering with one of her dresses in it...

Well there you have it ladies..Moms clean organized Shop just waiting for her to get busy Creating some new Gatherings.. I listened real good while mom told me all about the shop and I hope you had as much fun as I did tellin you about it...

Mom says she's getting tired so I need to get off her computer and get to bed too. She told me I better not wake her up before the Rooster Crows in the morning either...Hehe..that was prety fun wakin her up.. I was just so excited about all the other animals outside the window I wanted to tell her about them...She hates getting up that early...

Hope you have a great weekend!

Tonya @ My Primitive Creations A to Z

Good Morning.. Carmen over at PrimCats posted the A to Z Challange & has invited everyone to join her in playing.. What a cute way to get to know each other... I'm sure we'll read some great answers and get to know each other... No my A's to Z's.. this will be a little hard for me to do pictures because I'm on the Island with only the laptop. so here we go Tonya from A to Z!!

A~Artistic~I've always been an Artist in some way or another. I took after my mother she was an excellent Artistic woman and so is my daughter.

B~Boating..I've owned my own boat for 13 years. I love the feeling of being out on the lake with the wind in your face & the sun on your back. There's a sort of peacefullness and freedom that settles over me when I'm on my boat. I live on my boat in the summers! 

C~Creating~I love to create things from disguarded and old stuff. Creating is the place I go to be one with myself~a place where I can allow my mind to wonder & be at peace~where there is no stress to crowd out the joys of life..just me & my mind creating something new from something old... Its equally a challange which I crave...

D~Dog~Puddles is my truest Friend. He's been with me 15 years. if you see me you will see Mr.P. Work, play, relaxing, Boating he is always by my side. I love him for always providing me with a best friend at my side!! I can't imagine life without him...It will be one of my hardest days when he leaves me...

E~Efficient~I'm extremely efficient in everything I do ..almost to a fault sometimes...LOL..

F~Faithful~I believe God has blessed me with so many good things in my life. I don't always understand why he leads me down the path he leads me or why he allows suffering in my life but in the end I know he is with me. I know he's always there to pick me up and keep me going!

G~Gifts..I love giving gifts to others and watching them smile! I don't receive gifts very often but when I do I am like a little kid..

H~Honesty~Honesty is probably one of the things I treasure the most. I believe that honesty with self is one of the hardest things we as humans encounter but when we are able to be honest with our self we can be at peace with our self and with others! With Honesty comes Freedom to be who we are not what others expect! 

I~Invision~I've been Blessed with the ability to see things that others don't see when creating and decorating.

J~Joints~LOL~ I've got a lot of achey Joints..

K~Kitty's..I have two Tasha & Mama Kitty. They entertain me daily & are the high light of my life!

L~Loves of my Life~My Family~My Boat~My Fur Babies~Creating~Reading~Good Friends~

M~Meticulous~ some say it's good to be meticulous and that I am but I sometimes it's to a fault and it drives me carzy.. Especially when I am creating...

N~Night Time..I'm a night person.. My favorite time to create is at night. I love the Sky at night. the Stars and moon totally fasinate me. weird as it sounds I actually feel the pull of the moon on me..I feel how it affects my moods!

O~Organizing~I love to organize things..Part of it is my need to know exactly where things are..part of it it seeing a mess turn into something neat and orderly...part of it is that Meticulous part of me.. yes it is also to a fault at times. but the best part of that is people hire me to turn there messes into organization and pay me very well for my ability to do it with ease.

P~Pet Peeves~People saying they will do one thing and doing something else. Not doing what they say they will do. People who stand in your face and straight up lie to you..Breaking promises!

Q~Quiet Time I love Quiet alone working in my shop creating! I love Quiet time reading a good Book! I love Quiet time with a friend just talking and sharing!

R~Reading ~I love to read a good book. problem is when I read I can't do anything else cause I want to finish my book. that used to drive my kids nuts...guess it was my way of escaping...LOL..

S~there are a lot of S's in my life~

S~Sunflowers~they remind me of the Sun that I crave so much~the Stand Tall against the wind~they feed the Red Birds~they smile back at you~

S~Sunshine~Sunshine makes me happy~light at heart~Without sunshine I'm crabby and moody. Sunshine makes them old joints feel better too! Sunshine makes sunflowers grow huge which makes me smile!! I crave it!!

S~Shop~The place I go to create~To let my mind go~Where I get to do a job I love..creating things that make others happy!

T~Trailer~My Trailer.. I've owned many houses some really huge ones..but I love my Trailer..It's small but its inviting, warm, homey, easy to care for & filled with Sunflowers.

U~Ugliness in the world~I hate the ugliness taking place in the world today. It makes me sad to see how ugly people can be to others. How injustice is common place~Where life is so throw away. Where pride seems to have been lost!

V~Victory~I'm proud of the victory's I've accomplished in my life! Parenting my daughter & foster children~Learning to Captian my Boat~ Running my own businesses~Surviving near death health problems~My fight against so many auto-immune diseases & still being able to work!

X~Xrays & Examinations~hate them all and I've had more then my fair share and then some. They cost a fortune & half the time were pointless. Others they saved my life but I still hate them...

Y~You~You in blog land have made my life so much fuller, happier, fun and exciting. You all have shown me another side of things, shared your life threw pictures, been supportive, giving and kind. I may never meet any of you but you have become my friends and what a treasure there is in our friends. God Bless you all!!

Z~Zoo's~ I love the Zoo.. I wish we could experience seeing all the animals in there natural homes but since we can't the Zoo is the next best place to go and see all the gifts in the animal kingdom that God Created..

So there ya have it Tonya from A to Z.. I hope you will join in and share of little of yourself from A to Z.. it should be fun to see how we all preceive ourselves.. Its hard to come up with some of them... but it was fun.. I hope you enjoy!!

I'm off to work... My last day of orgainizing my clients life from A to Z.. Yes I will have accomplished the set goal by the end of today!!

Have a wonderful Saturday...!! Until we meet again may your day e filled with memorable moments!!
