Oh happy days! Look what I just finished to bring home!!! I've wanted a mantel for quite awhile for our new little nest and I finally got one - I just can't wait to get it home - electric logs and all. it was a creamy white, but that just wouldn't do in our mustard and black color scheme, so out came the paint brushes.
It has been a busy week of getting more things into the shop. It is always such a great feeling to see fresh merchandise!
My very favorite is this Jenny Linn child's bed, including ticking mattress, pillow and quilt. The mattress and pillow are stuffed with corn husks.
Couldn't you just see a collection of dolls sitting in this one?
These cute little tealight holders, both bottle shape and mason jars, are perfect for a porch or patio on a summer's evening.
Cute little Easter socks for adults and babies too.
This old red cupboard is prim perfect! The inside of the door has old printing on it.
Wish this picture had showed up a little better.
I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this old red farm table with drawer. It is shown with two old spindle back chairs in perfect condition.
And picture frames.
This old crate would be the best coffee table. It has the original printing on the outside. It was sent to Detroit, Michigan from Boston, Massachusetts.
More signs and flowers.
Isn't this breadbox perfect for a countertop?
This dress is so delicate and beautiful.
What a great centerpiece this old strawberry carrier would make.
More and more spring!
These metal flowers would look so cheerful in any garden.
Quilts anyone? This one is a real beauty.
This lamp is unusual. It has a blue plaid shade with a platform to set anything you want on it.
Another beautiful old lamp.
These bedsteps are awesome. The tops lift up for storage. Hope you'll come in and check out some of the great things that are arriving almost daily.
This morning I went to Abbey's school before I opened the shop. The second grade had written fictional "books" to read. We were treated with juice and donuts and it was so much fun. Lucy wants to show you her FOUR new teeth.
Soon it was Abbey's turn to read her book. Her teacher held the microphone for each student. I'm SO proud of her!
After work Rosie and I went up to visit my dad at the nursing home. He is one of the biggest dog lovers I know and Rosie is no exception. She just brightens his day! I give him her leash and she just walks around with him in his wheelchair. All of the patients want to pet her and love on her - she should have been a therapy dog.
Dad and Rosie having a little conversation. He told me that bringing her tonight just "made his day".
So today has been a productive day at Holly Hills and around town. It is supposed to rain in Michigan this weekend, so I hope you come see me instead of staying home with nothing to do!
Until next time...
