Gotta love those days that start out fun and end the same way! Soon after I opened the shop yesterday, fellow bloggers Janice and Bob from stopped in for a visit. What a nice couple they both are! Can't wait to go to visit their shop sometime soon!

All of our stove/noodle boards had sold and we have been getting more in again. Of course black is ever popular, but I love the cobblestone color too.

These big gourd spoons are fantastic! Wouldn't they be great displayed with old covered bottles and bowls?

Have you ever seen corncob dolls? I have them hung on our tree and they are just precious little fillers.

More stitcheries are coming in as more go out. "The Old Door" is framed in an old window with a prim star and crow at the bottom.

We also have stitcheries mounted to old boards with rusty wire and Sweet Annie. They are a great alternative to frames.

After the shop closed, I hurried home and we took off to visit Earlene and Norm and had the greatest time. Their house is TO DIE FOR!!! Everyplace you look is perfect prim heaven. I should have taken more pictures, but I was too busy looking. Is this just the coziest spot?

You wouldn't believe this pantry! It is a big walk-in and filled to the brim like a dream come true.

I know this pictures is DARK, but this mustard stepback is amazing. Love all of the shoflies along the front.

Who doesn't love shelves?

Earlene had left her two snowmen out so I could see them. It was love at first sight! What a great way to display them in the old wooden trencher.

And last, but not least, is the wooden box/spoon holder. I went crazy over this piece and have just the place to put one for me! Please Dick...
Anyway, we had Greek salad (delish) and pizza and the best conversation. It snowed like crazy and the roads were like a skating rink, but it was well worth the drive. Who doesn't need an adventure once in awhile? Thank you Norm and Earlene for a wonderful evening. (Now I've got to putz around our house - you inspired me!)
Until next time...
