Hi Prim Pals! Another rainy day in Michigan! I'm starting to wonder if it is ever going to quit! Oh well, we should have beautiful flowers if the sun ever decides to peek out again.
I've been talking about Sally's cards that we now offer, but words do not do them justice. They are SO beautiful and truly frameable. I wanted to be able to share them with you and I'm happy that the pictures came out pretty good. They are so special and I go ga-ga every time she brings another one in. Some cards in the regular stores are $5 or $6, so $9.95 for these beauties is a bargain! Hope you enjoy! I love the old pictures and OLD verses that she uses.
Wouldn't this be adorable for a new baby?
What special friend wouldn't love this?
Isn't this photo something?
Look at the beautiful cutwork on this one!
What a dear Mother's Day card!
Another wonderful Mother's Day card!
What a beautiful little girl!
Hope you enjoyed these as much as I do!
Now, on to our town. I was a little bored today, so I thought I would take a few "downtown" pictures of Holly. It's such a quaint little village and such a fun place to have a shop.
This was originally our firehall, but is now the township office building with Main Street Antiques next door.
Looking down the street from my shop.
The other way from my shop.
Across the street is the original bank building, now village offices.

This is our "Battle Alley" where Carrie Nation once stormed through. Lots of festivities go on here throughout the year. If you look WAY down the street, you will see a red canopy. That is Battle Alley Arcade, which is another great antique mall.
And last, but not least, is Holly Hills Primitives! Hope you enjoyed the little tour. I love our little town and am proud to be a part of it all. Our family has been here FOREVER! My granddaughter is the 6th generation of women to go to Holly schools, which makes me pretty proud.
This is a busy week. Ashley's baby shower is Sunday, so I've been appointed to take care of the game department and some of the food. It should be lots of fun to see all those little clothes and baby goodies. Tonight I'm going to her house to make the bed skirt for the crib - then we should be able to take all the nursery photos to share. It is really incredible! Lucy is going to be a lucky little girl. Dick is going to have to watch the shop for me. He isn't too upset about it, it should be an entertaining day. There is the "Rally on Battle Alley" on Sunday! They close the streets, have a d.j. and there are many, many motorcycles in town.
Well girls, on to Ashley's house toting the sewing machine! Have a great evening and get out and do a SUN dance!
Until tomorrow...


  1. Hi Dawn,
    Great favorite is the one with the rabbit & birds. Your hometown looks so charming and inviting!!...And so does your shop!!!
    Wouldn't do me any good to do the SUN's been raining here for two days and is going to rain for several more. But I would make a fool of myself and do the SUN dance if I knew for sure that it would make the sun shine! LOL...

  2. Love the cards and the pics of Holly are terrific - it really is a cute downtown! Wow! 6 generations of women - very impressive! Be sure to show us pics of the baby bedding!

  3. Dawn, your town looks so charming and quaint, it reminds me of Fredericksburg, Virginia where there's alot of great antique shops....and the cards look lovely, I'm sure they will do well for you....have a wonderful Friday! Janet

  4. Love the cards! They are more beautiful than I pictured from previous posts! Thanks for sharing! She does awesome work! LOVE your little village, reminds me of Germantown! So quaint! It's adorable with a lot of history! Can't wait to visit you, especially because I have MY OWN ROOM to stay in!!!!! LOL Take Care, Missie (; Jailhouse Primitives

  5. Hi Dawn,

    I'm Sally's daughter, Noelle. I've heard a lot about you and your antiques. I have to come out with my mom sometime and check it out. Looks like an adorable shop! I'd just like to say that I think it's wonderful you're featuring my mom's cards on your website and in your shop. She is TRULY amazing and a wonderful artist and a wonderful mom! She is such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing her wonderful works of art with your customers! Good luck with all of your antique endeavors!

  6. Oh Dawn...all those wonderful little panes of windows...(not that I want to clean them...I am not very good with windows) BUT they are just charming...the olde-fashion country store look of your storefront is so inviting.
    Cards are pretty cool too.....Fondly, Judy
