Hi good friends! I don't even know where to start, this has been one hectic darn month! I guess I'll start with the new finds for the shop and go from there.
Got this cute table with drop/slide leaves at both ends, it is so great with the black chairs.
This is a wall-mount hoosier top. The glass was missing in the middle door, so what else but a feedsack would go in there?
Close-up of the small feedsack.
Drysink ready for the new handles.
This little mustard piece is as prim as can be. It has towel holders on both ends.
We recruited Sharon to come out of "retirement" and get her brushes out again and am I ever glad! This old sunflower stool is prim perfect!
How about this old school desk? The writing arm isn't this light in person - must have been the camera.
Little table just perfect for a screened porch or deck.
This old ironing board is wonderful! Couldn't you just see it all lit up on a covered porch?
Got in this little magazine table with compartments underneath. I should have moved the gameboard before I took the picture.
This "chicken" bin shelf is really a keeper - it might even have to come home with me!
How about an old chair to put your pot of flowers in?
Lots of gardening goodies still here.
This "tilt" quilt rack is really unusual. What a great way to show off a collection.
Darling kindergarden size old desk and child's folding chair.
This desk is really unusual. When you fold up the front of the desk, it looks just like a dresser.
These old white chairs are as sweet as can be - and sturdy!
Need a PRIM bench for your garden - this is it!
And this baby "stroller" from the late 1800's is just made to set one of your favorite dolls in!
Well, that's it for the new goodies and now on to the month I've had.
It started out that we had a chance to rent our wonderful old house to a nice family - but only if they could be in by the end of the week. I really wanted them to have it, so it was the most exhausting week I've had in a long time - but they are in! It's amazing how much you can accumulate over 20 years in one house! I just closed my eyes and pitched - LOTS! When that was done, we took a truckload of things to our cottage - where we did NOTHING for a whole day. It was heaven.
In the middle of all of this move, I had the downtown Holly antique show coming and had to rearrange the whole shop and get it ready. Sure glad I did, we had a great day! Can't wait until October 2nd for the next one.
My sweet dad is slipping and has been very confused, so there have been some extra runs to the nursing home - even though one of us goes every day.
THEN this week my husband and I both came down with the flu! YUK!!!
All is better now and we're back at it. I hope to spend Monday and Tuesday sewing and making more handmades for the shop.
I hope you will all mark your calendars for Friday, July 16th from 5-9 p.m. We are having s "shop hop" called An Evening In the Country with another great country store called Wren In The Willow in Goodrich, Michigan. There will be food, music, prizes, specials... Be watching for more information.
I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day tomorrow. We are taking Dad out to brunch and then going to daughter Amanda's for a picnic and dip in their pool!
That's about it for catch-up news for this time.
Until next time...
