GOOD BYE 2009...

As the new year is coming upon us, it was definately time for a shop redo. It felt so great to move all the Christmas goodies to the back of the shop and put them all on sale for 60% off! While our friends Connie and Rick were here, we went on an antiqueing adventure and definately found some great prims! I couldn't wait to share with you. I LOVE this old nesting box! Sadly, it's for sale, but doesn't it make a great display piece??? I could also see it in a bathroom filled with towels, lotions and prim goodies.
This island is fantastic - with towel bar and all.

This double laundry tub (with the top) could be used for so many things. How about ice and beverages for a party, or a planter on the porch?
This carpenter's tote is the best one I've ever found. It is so big! It covers the top of the trunk. What a wonderful piece on an old harvest table.
This BIG old wooden box is also a keeper! I could just see it next to a fireplace filled with firewood.
It's hard to see this side table, but it is beautiful. The base is an old sewing machine bottom.
I have carpenter's totes in every shape and size!
This old bucket with the screened spout is so different. Wouldn't it be beautiful filled with spring flowers?
Couldn't resist this old rusty mailbox and wooden drawers. I use a wooden drawer to put our dog dishes in - great way to hide them.
I finally found another old chicken feeder. I almost brought it home to use for the birds this winter.
That's just a sampling of what is arriving at the shop. More will be coming in next week, along with handmades and Valentine's goodies.
Oh, I almost forgot! My new winter hours for January and February will be Wed. thru Fri. from 10-5 and Sat. 10-4. This much needed time off will allow me to scout out more prim antiques, create some handmades, go to the shows, schedule our "cabin fever" classes and more.
Be sure to stop in and check out our new look!
Until next time...
