Woo Hoo! What a few days Dick and I have had! We have spent so much time creating and getting ready for the Gathering On The Lawn at the Old Granary in Quincy, MI on Saturday. Just thought I'd share a few of the things we are taking that have never been in the shop. Above is a PRIMITIVE "sink". It would be so cool filled with fall or Christmas bowl fillers and naturals.

This little make-do chair in made from an old wooden box. The lid opens and things can be stored inside. It would be adorable with an old doll sitting on the seat.

Sorry this one is the wrong direction, but it is my very favorite. It's a floor candle holder out of an old hand "washer" and a fur stretcher. The reflector is an old spoon held on with leather straps.

Love, love, love this old barrel with the handmade lid. As you can see, it has a hook to hang the lid on the side.

Another unique candle holder from an old masher and wooden spoon.

This candle holder is made using an old sleeve ironing board. So cute hanging on a wall!

Another dark picture. This old bread drawer liner has a pumpkin guy peeking out and is filled with fall goodies. There is an old corn cob and crow attached to the front.

We made so many other things, but you'll just have to come to the show to check them out. Old decorated shutters, windows, and prim dolls. If you've never been to the Old Granary - then you're in for a treat! Joann is giving 10% off storewide, plus you will have a whole lawn to shop from full of great vendors.

Hope to see you there - September 24th from 10-5.

Until next time...
