Oh boy! I didn't think the weather could get worse, but zero temps are in the forecast for tonight. This wind cuts right through your clothes and burns your skin. Oh spring, where are you??? Well, it's starting to pop up right inside of Holly Hills Primitives. It feels so good to walk in and see some hints of what's to come. The big daisy just makes me smile.
The light-up bunny would be cute as can be on someone's porch.

These bunny make-do's are on old bobbins and sit in an old electrical outlet.

This one does too.
This little guy would be so cute in the middle of a grapevine wreath!
Betty and her babies is a full-size bunny with an old feedsack for her apron.
This is another guy that would be adorable inside a wreath.
This bunny head is mounted inside an old bundt pan and is surrounded with angel vine, eggs and a carrot.
I know there's some black doll collectors out there and we are getting more and more in the shop. Wish I could get a good picture of the inside of the old window, it has three black dolls with real wool hair in the top panes and it says "Olde Rag Dolls" in the bottom panes. It is held up by an old leather strap.
Cute as can be!
I'm SOOO glad to be home for the evening. I had to stop at the gas station and it was torture standing out there pumping gas! I ran up to visit my dad (so glad I did) and now I'm finally nestled in. I'm going to try to finish up the projects I told you about - so maybe I can share tomorrow.
I hope you are all safe at home doing whatever makes you happy!
Until next time...


  1. You need to move to Texas, it was 70 degree's here today, and has been that and warmer the last couple weeks!

  2. It ten degrees here, the wind is a blowin' and we've had two days of snow. =)
    You have so many great things at the store. I can't wait to get down there sometime and see everything up close. I like that these photos get large when I click on them!
    Bundle up and I'm glad to be with you thinking Spring.

  3. Dawn,
    Love the dolls and the window!! I can't wait to come up in the Spring...think that I better save lots of money to spend, cuz I just know I'm going love everything in your shop.
    Take care and stay warm,

  4. Cold here with snow in the single digets and I know there will be a two hour delay for school tomorrow, so that means I'll have to take Sydney to the bus and Samantha to preschool:)

    Your store does look so springy especially with those sweet rabbits.

  5. It was VERY cold here today the hints of SPRING in your shop!!! I'm starting to paint BUNNIES!
    Stay warm!

  6. The cold is bitter, I agree! The shop looks great, Dawn! I must get back up there soon! Have a great weekend.

  7. Good morning Dawn. It's bitter cold here with a wind chill of 20 below! I can hardly believe though that Ground Hogs day is nearly here!!!! I guess spring is just around the corner.

    Hugs, Doreen
