Holly Hills Primitives is a brick and mortar storefront in the quaint village of Holly, Michigan. My name is Dawn Rossell and the shop has been in operation for approximately eight years. About three years ago, my husband, Dick, retired and has joined forces with me. We will ship anywhere in the United States, everything but furniture. We hope you will find that most of our merchandise is high quality primitive wares. Give us a call at the shop and we will get your orders out within two to three days. But don't forget, we still want you to come visit us at the shop too!
What a special evening I had tonight! Our Abbey never ceases to amaze me and tonight was no exception. My dad wanted me to pick up a birthday present for her from him, so she went to the nursing home with us tonight and we had a picnic out in the courtyard. When I got there he signed her card, "Love, Grandad", which surprised me so much - he doesn't seem to be able to understand to read any longer. Well, she had decided that he needed some things to cheer him up and she wrapped a whole bag of gifts for him that she thought might help him remember "their" times together. Included were a little box of cars they used to play with, a bright beaded necklace, sunglasses for when he went outside, books they always read, balloons, a picture she had colored, a card she wrote, and lots more. When she goes to visit, Dad just lights up. He loves her with his whole heart. The best were the two pennies she put in the bag, so they could both make a wish in the fountain. I could have cried! She pushes his wheelchair, helps him get his food ready, pats and hugs him and just loves to be his "nurse". My heart just swells with pride when I watch this little 7 year-old girl with her 86 year-old great grandpa. Mom, Dad and Abbey.
Dad and Abbey.
The two of them being silly.

And the two of them making wishes in the fountain.
This will truly be one of those nights I will never forget. Sometimes the best memories are made from nothing that was planned. I love you Abigail Dawn, thanks for being my granddaughter.
