Make Prim Happen~ It's A Marathon

I am jogging in place and throwing some punches.  The gloves are off and the lists are made.  I have reason to take a domestic house~break, a hiatus, a staycation.  Oh, the kids will be fed, but that's about it.  Far too long have I had my pile of "make prim happen" pictures just sitting there in my pinterest account waiting to be made.  So this week's the week.  The marathon is starting.  Everyday will produce a new and wonderful thing (provided the project doesn't flop:)).  So, today I am going shopping for food, paper plates, movies, caffeine, and the items needed to complete my projects. Tomorrow the fun begins.  Here's the line up:

~Day 1~
 I have needed another bonnet for a while now.  I have had the fabric for it just sitting here for just as long.  I have found a great link for a pattern here.  Our Pioneer Homestead

~Day 2~
 Oh, the images that are in my head of the wonderful vignette I want in my kitchen.  I am never going to get it done unless I have something to build it around.  A couple of pantry cakes is a great place to start I think.
I love Carmen's tutorial.

~Day 3~
 All this project takes is some fabric, freezer paper, and a printer.  I need some accents on my couch upstairs and one to sit on my wooden chair. A Fine Farmhouse has the most wonderful inspirations.  Here is a good link for directions~Hazelruthes

~Day 4~
When Mary showed us her faux Redware in miniature I knew I had to make some.  I really don't know what I am going to do with them when I am done, but that's the least of my problems.  

I want to show you all my progress throughout the week.  It's the only way to ensure I stay on track and get it all done in time:)  So, I am putting on my sweats, grabbing my water bottle, stretching to warm up, and getting ready to make it to the finish line.
