On Friday evening, we had a beautiful dinner at the Historic Holly Hotel with Norm and Earlene Landis for her birthday. 


Last Saturday was a primitive dream come true!  My friends Tammy and Debbie went with me to Cabin In The Woods and we had the best time. Cheryl Jones was such a gracious hostess for her Christmas open house. The shop was wonderful, the entertainment great, the fires toasty and OH the log cabins!  Can't wait to go back again!

Thank you Cheryl for a fantastic day!

Saturday afternoon was like a dream. We were invited by Norm and Earlene Landis to attend a dinner set in the 1800s at the Waterloo Farm Museum. The tour was so interesting, the home was out of this world, the actors were outstanding and the food was fabulous. Thank you so much for inviting us!

In less than two weeks Holly Hills Primitives will be hosting our annual Christmas open house. Christmas At The Mill will surely get you in the holiday spirit. Our elves have been so busy getting our handmades all stitched up. I've been on buying trips. Dick has been making a lot of sawdust in his workshop. AND the boxes have been arriving daily!

Who doesn't love an old-fashioned Christmas?  Come join us on November 1 from 10-5 and November 2 from noon-4. The shop will be a winter wonderland! Candles, music, trees, Christmas lights, yummy food and hourly door prizes!

ALSO, Tammy Jias from Grungy Primitives will be unveiling her new series (plus lots more) on November 1.

What a fantastic Harvest At The Mill show we just had!!  It was so much fun both at dinner Friday night and the show on Saturday. We were so fortunate to have some of our very own blogging buddies set up beautiful booths this time. 
Marie Morgan came a long ways to join us and she is as much fun in person as she is on her blog!
Earlene Landis is always a favorite!  Great booth!
Bobbie and Dave Beauchamp outdid themselves!
Kris Miller from Spruce Ridge Studios joined us with her incredible rug hooking!
Teresa and Kevin Kogut are just fantastic!

More pictures will follow after vacation, but Kelly Hollandsworh from Scarecrow Cabin and Janice and Bob Ahee always bring beautiful prims from Prims By The Water (Back Porch Antiques). Hope I didn't leave out any bloggers that joined us. 
Now it's off to pack and head out tomorrow morning for a fun vacation!!!
Until next time...

Made a quick trip up to our Little House last night to do some yard work and cleaning. It was so peaceful and so hard to leave to come home!
When we got home, Abbey and Lucy came over for the last sleepover before school starts. Our son, Chad, brought over a motorized skateboard over for everyone to try. What a blast!!!
Guess my photos got out of order!
Time to get some rest and prepare for a busy week. 
Until next time...

Can you believe that we are only a week away from Harvest At The Mill???  So much to finish up, but oh do worth it!

Can't wait to see blogger and FB friends. We are going to take a group picture of all of you at some point before noon.   Also, if you are a blogger or FB friend and want to meet others, stop at the entrance  and get a name tag. 

This will be one of the very best prim shows in Michigan with antiques, makedos, handmades, a greenhouse, bluegrass music, bar b que and more. 

Hope to see you next Saturday!
Until then...
