Happy May Day Prim Pals! One of these years I'm actually going to get some baskets ready and go hang them on my friend's doors. I've always wanted to do that, but time always slips away by the time May 1 rolls around. It would just be so much fun!
Today started out chilly, but sunny. As the day went on, guess what? Rain again!!! This darn rain is getting on my last nerve! Oh well, not a darn thing we can do about it. I just putzed around the shop and gathered some Mother's Day things together and played for most of the day. See what you think. This is our newest angel. She is a BIG girl with wooden wings and OLD baby shoes on her feet. Her little hands are together in prayer for her children. The tag reads "Mothers are angels in disguise." $59.95
All of our 8 x 10 stitcheries are $29.95, but I am running a 20% off special.

I've sold SO many of this one! It's one of my favorite verses.

We also have a couple new "Libertys" in. This one has old square nails for her crown, an old quilt piece star, a crow on her shoulder, and a flag. Her tag reads "Sweet Land Of Liberty". $34.95

Another PRIM Liberty. She is painted oransburg with twine hair, cheesecloth top, stick arms, painted crown, and a wool star with rusty pin and rusty bells. Her tag reads "Oh say can you see..." $29.95
I took my Rosie dog over to spend the day with my folks today, they love her company and when I picked her up tonight, my mom had found the best surprise! My son, Chad, is now 40 and she had found two of his little bathing suits from when he was about 2 or 3. They are so darned cute and they look so old! I'm going to take them up to the Little House and put them with my antique wool swimming suit. (Unless Kim and Chad want them back!)
Next week will be a busy week around Holly! Everyone will be getting ready for Ladies Night Out and I have lots to do! I'm trying to gather up lots of old pails, pans, lunch boxes, etc. to plant herbs in for Mother's Day. I have an old flower cart in the shop and they would look so cute displayed on that. Still trying to decide what to do for treats though. Got lots of sewing to finish up and more painting and stitching to do too. Whew! There just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day! Oh well, guess it keeps us young!
Have a great evening and enjoy your weekend. Until another time...


  1. Happy May Day to you, too, Dawn!
    Love your Liberty Dolls ~ so prim and cute. Aren't you tired of this rain & cool weather? I'm beginning to think it will never warm up but my dear hubs keeps reminding me that it's only May 1st. I guess I'm trying to rush things this year cuz it was such a long, hard winter ~ or maybe it's my age?? LOL Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Happy May Day, late in the day! Yep, I'm also sick of the rain and cold. Problem is, 'round here, it goes from cold to hot with not much in between! Have a great weekend - looking forward to GNO - I will be a tad late as I forgot, (how, I don't know) that Prom is on Friday as well. I'll be getting Matt off and then will head up and meet up with all the gals. Don't let Debbie, Sheila and Julie buy all the good stuff!!! LOL!!

  3. Happy May Day - a day late and a dollar short!

    What wonderful sayings on those stitcheries. I can see why that last one sells so well.

    We are supposed to get rain but never do. if only we can share weather like we do ideas huh?

    Have a great weekend! hugs, Linda

  4. I just love the stitcheries..especially the strong women one.

    Have a wonderful day.

  5. Evening Dawn - such beautiful merchandise you have in your shop....and the angel is adorable.
    Hey tell us about Ladies Night Out? Or did I miss it someplace.

  6. I hope you have a great LNO! Love the idea of planting herbs in lunch pails and pots:)

  7. Love all the Mothers Day sticheries, I hope I spelled that right....
    Happy Mothers Day to you.
