Rainy days are here for awhile in Michigan. I heard it's supposed to rain off and on for most of the week. Oh well, might as well set back and enjoy it. I just wish I could curl up with a cup of coffee and a new magazine!
Watermelons have made their way into the shop in all forms - slices, wreaths, dolls...
This little slice of watermelon with a mouse is mounted on an old bobbin.
These mice have made themselves right at home enjoying their banquet.

This little stump doll caught herself a ladybug!
Another little stump doll is mounted in an old bundt pan and sports the American flag.
Louisa sure loves her sunflowers, all picked with Sweet Annie in a feedsack bag.
Closer look at her sweet face.
This long, skinny gal loves to take her bunny outside to find some wild carrots.
Shhh, don't tell the farmer.
Abbey came to the shop after school to show me her new yearbook and decided to ride up and visit Great-Grandpa with me. She always lights up his day.
We took him a nice cold root beer and one of Zanie Janie's BIG sugar cookies. YUMMY!
REMINDER: Don't forget to mark your calendars for the downtown Holly antique show on June 12th. The street is closed down and the antique vendors come to town! Holly Hills Primitives will have lots of new goodies to share with you too.
Hope your week is going great and we'll talk again soon.
Until next time...


  1. What a great picture of those two! I bet he sure enjoyed that root beer, especially with that cute gal!

  2. very sweet memories to share....★ Linda ★

  3. Love all your new goodies! I sure do wish I could come to the Holly antique show. I bet your Dad enjoyed that root beer and cookie!!

  4. Great new dolls, Dawn! The best pics are those of your dad and Abbey. I am hoping to make it to Holly on the 12th but in the back of my mind, that date seems like it might be saved for something.... if not, you may see me there!

  5. Great reminder that I had better start working on some watermelons...always behind the mice on them. Your Dad looks great Dawn - wish I could come to the antique show - you always have the most interesting items for sale!!! XO, Judy

  6. Please tell Lucy that Lili says THANK YOU and sends hugs and squeals!

  7. The store looks so lovely and ready for summer! Its been so hot here on the prairie, I wish it would rain! Happy summer~

  8. Hi Dawn,
    I LOVE your shop and would like to come and visit. I live in New Baltimore, MI. What are your hours of operation?
