House Number Two! This is my friends Debbie and Kenny's new up north house. They have the greatest collections and she is the best at finding good prims for the shop!
Shutters Kenny made for the outside of their house.
Time for a little springtime. Repro candy container bunny and our homemade clove egg, homemade felt eggs and our new carrots!
Old antique toys and tins on the top of the butler's pantry.
Some great old crocks on the fireplace hearth.
I LOVE this stack of old stools!

Two great old cupboards and weathervane. Kenny made the sign.
This old butler's pantry is out of this world. (See the stack of new signs they made for my shop? Lucky me!)
Debbie's latest find was this little old white bench from North Carolina. It's cute as can be with her bunnies and bears.
This old birdhouse is awesome.
OLD wooden washtub, wooden bucket, old tin and basket. Looks just right on top of this stepback.
What a cozy little corner to curl up and watch the fire, read a magazine or work on a craft.
What a collection of old children's clothing. This pie safe is one of my favorites of their cupboards, but I also love the mustard one.
Don't miss the PRIM sled on top of the pie safe! How about the advertising in some of these pictures?
Sorry, you already saw this one (but isn't it worth a second look?).
Blanket chest in living room as a coffee table with a hooked rug and cinnamon sticks in the wooden trencher around the candle.
What a collection of old tins. They are just out of this world.
Don't you love the old screen door going into the pantry and laundry room?
Other view of the kitchen. Look at the old white door for a backsplash!
Little collection of old clocks on a bedroom dresser.
Can you tell that Debbie loves children's dolls, furniture, china?
Another collection of old gowns on a great old hooked rack. Can you see the buttons all the way down the longest gown?
More old tins in the bathroom. Lucky!
Bathroom view with old blue ironing board and white cupboard.
There you have our second little home tour. This just shows you that any style house can go prim! I feel so lucky to have Debbie and Kenny finding antiques for the shop and building some fine pieces of furniture. Thanks for letting me share your home you two!
This has been a day of reflecting for me. My son turned FORTY today!!! Isn't it amazing how fast the time goes? It seems like he was just a little boy and now he's a grown man. I am so proud of Chad. He is just one of those good guys that everybody loves. He is sensitive, caring, hard working, FUN, and just a wonderful son. He is into so many things! He is a ski instructor, a mountain biker, a road biker, a guitarist, a shop owner, but most of all a great partner to Kim. He is a wonderful big brother to my Ashley and takes his roll as an uncle to Abbey very seriously. We were all lucky 40 years ago today. Happy Birthday Chad!
We have had rain all day again today. Is spring ever going to get here?
By the way, 9 more days and I'm meeting my friend Connie in Waynesville, OH. Do any of you gals from that area know of some good prim country stores anywhere from Columbus to the Indiana line? We sure plan on going to Jailhouse Primitives and Lizzie's Cabin. I'd love it if you could clue us in!
Time to fix dinner and get ready to watch Idol. Hope you enjoyed our second tour. Be watching for more soon. Have a great night!
