WOW!!! Am I ever tired, but we're ready for our customers and friends to come first thing tomorrow morning. Old man Tobias rabbit is ready and waiting at the front door to greet you.
There are so many prim goodies for you to choose from!
This guy is carrying his berry basket full of carrots.

This make-do bunny has his hat filled with eggs and carrots.
I'm crazy about this antique wheelboro - it would be great for any season!
Need some prim Easter grass?
This potting bench is adorable and would look great in the middle of your garden.
More garden goodies!

And garden signs.

This crow peg rack is my very favorite - I'm having a hard time leaving it at the shop!
Do you do an Easter tree? Cute, cute, cute ornies!
We even have lots of things for you gals that aren't so into prims.

This box is so sweet, the nest is attached to the lid.
These light bulbs are a hoot - especially the chicks.
This sign is just beautiful!
Our table is all painted and waiting to go home with someone. Got the idea from a blog, but forgot which one. (Sorry!) I'll add that when I figure out where I found it.
Great old shelf to go with the table.
This old race car is so unique! Wouldn't it be great in a little boy's room?

The old sleigh is full of sunflowers, crows and birdhouses.

And there's lots!

From every direction!
We have antique parasols everywhere - you know April showers are coming.
Sweet little old hat and glove sets too - Sunday Best!
This rug is just stunning!
Of course this one is too.
Our Sharon painted some great pieces with sunflowers - everyone's favorite.
More sho-flies are in too.
And this window is precious - another piece by Sharon.
So, if you're in the area tomorrow, stop in and have some fun at our Hoe Down Open House. We will have all kinds of "chuckwagon" food and music in Zanie Janie's and you don't want to miss her fabulous coffee. We will open at 10 a.m. and be there until 4 p.m. - or until everyone decides to go home! See you then!
Now I'm ready for a little down time with my hubby.
Until next time...


  1. Just wanted to wish you well with your Open House tomorrow Dawn! I am sure it will be a big success! I'll be there in spirit!! HUGS my friend!!

  2. Evening Dawn, It was so refreshing to come in and check computer and see all your pictures. We just drove out of state, used a tank and half or gas ( you know that's not cheap anymore ) just so I could do some prim shopping. Such a bummer. The shops I was so excited to visit was not in business anymore. I managed to find 1 burlap bag at an antique mall, got a few easter things,(not hamdmade and not prim) a cloche ( that I love ) and an antique music roll that was used on an old self player piano. Why I loved that I don't know. Have plans for it somewhere on my piano. Had a great lunch with Mr. P. who had taken the day off just for me. Sure wish I was going to be there tomorrow. Saw so many neat things in the pictures of your shop. Love the bunnys you have everywhere. Good luck tomorrow. Have fun with all your customers. My heart will be there also.

  3. Hi Dawn~ everything looks "Prim Perfect"!! I know you must be very tired, but it will be worth it!!! Have a VERY SUCCESSFUL open house!!

  4. Oh Dawn everything looks wonderful, I wish you a very busy weekend!, then a little R and R! Love the little red wheelbarrow, primitive crow peg rack and who could resist the very "chick" light bulbs! Looking forward to future photos. Happy Spring!

  5. Can I just snap my fingers and be there in your shop tomorrow? I love everything! Good luck.

  6. Hi Dawn.

  14. HEY I see part of one of my labels in the 17th picture down that I designed.. You just have the SUGAR part.. I saw the rest of the BEETS label in a different picture and the year 1876 label in the same picture. They are part of my set 1 Farmhouse. Nice to see them being used on something.
