Good evening prim pals. Just wanted to pop in and thank everyone that helped make our Fall Open House a success today (and throughout the week too). There's nothing like customers that have turned into friends!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of a great visit from Janet of Old Crow Primitives - all the way from Ontario, Canada. Sure wish she lived closer, she is so much fun and such a sweet gal! Today Earlene from Primitive Passion Decorating came to the open house with her sister Sharon. It is always so much fun to see other bloggers!

Carol, Dick and I had a ball waiting on everyone and chatting it up a bit too. Whew, looks like we might have to go on another buying trip!!!

Mr. Dan Hays came to sing for us again and was a real crowd pleaser! He is getting to be quite popular in our little village. Thanks again to everyone that we've had the pleasure to seeing this week.

As the open house was wrapping up, one of the gals that works in another shop (Natalie) came into town after her wedding for her photographs to be taken. One of Zanie Janie's customers brought their 1959 Ford in for a "prop". All of the bridesmaids, bride and groomsmen were dressed in vintage outfits and it was beyond adorable! Congratulations to the new couple.

Wish you could have seen them all in person!

Click on the picture and check out all of the vintage dresses. What a great idea!

Well friends, time to take a little time to relax and then tomorrow we are going to the Little House for a couple of days. Hope Dick wants to go fishing so I can just sleep, sleep, sleep. I'll be back next week to leave comments on your blogs. I've kept up reading them this week, but just haven't had time to comment. Have a great Sunday!

Until next time...


  1. Dawn, So glad you had a great day. Some great pictures. Just read and saw Earlene's post with her goodies from your shop. Have a great vacation and relax and enjoy yourself.
