BACK TO NORMAL...
Come on in! Dick and I spent all day yesterday taking down Christmas and rearranging the shop. Want to see what we've done so far? We're trying to get things ready to bring back lots of goodies from the markets and make room for the new handmades and furniture. The fireplace is still up front waiting to warm you up when you come in the door.
I showed you a picture of our primitive "sink" yesterday, but I forgot to take pictures of the inside. What a great conversation piece this one is!
We moved the dough box up front too, it holds the old handmade towel holder.
We have lots of lighting left for your "redecorating" needs. Rice lights, dipped lights and more!
Lots of 1803 and Black Crow candles are ready to make your homes smell YUMMY!
We moved a section to showcase the mustard pieces together. The dry sink is finally in it's temporary home and is the icing on the cake! The big chimney cupboard with the old screen door has great storage and looks so prim.
The dry sink deserves a second look!
This old table desk with the original pumpkin paint is SOO great. I could just see it on the right countertop to keep bills, misc papers, etc in.
Got grandchildren? The old hired hand's bed would be just right for overnights.
We could set down at the trestle table and get a cup of coffee from Zanie Janie's.
This big laundry tub would make a great place to plant flowers this spring or fill with pumpkins in the fall.
Just got a tool box filled with little drawers. Do any of you "jewelry" gals need a place to store everything?
Who doesn't love old children's furniture? I could just see this in a country kitchen!
Another new piece is the old buggy seat. Just think what you could do on a big trestle table with this one!
Anybody into blue? I LOVE the OLD blue baby bathtub and stand, the little cupboard is an old trunk turned on end with wooden spool legs.
Any doll collectors out there? What am I thinking??? Of course there are. The mid 1800's youth bed would be a real eye catcher for a display.
And last, but not least, is the beautiful OLD tavern table with original green paint.
Are you still with me? It sure feels great to get things back to normal. New prims will be arriving daily by next week and then its time to be off to the markets the next week. I'm SOOOO excited to get the new items in and displayed for your shopping pleasure. In fact, we are going to pick up a load this weekend!
But for now, it's time to pack my bag and get ready to head up north to the Little House for the weekend. I can hear that nice, soft couch calling my name! Looking forward to rest, some movies and a little stitching. The shop will be closed tomorrow through Tuesday and we will be back first thing Wednesday morning just waiting for you.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO THE BEST BLOG BUDDIES A GAL COULD HAVE!
Until next time...
