NO TIME TO TAKE A BREATH...
My word! Things have sure been hopping at Holly Hills Primitives! Dick and I thought we would have a day to rest up a little today, but five pieces of furniture went out of the shop yesterday and another one may go tomorrow! I guess there really is no rest for the wicked! He is back preparing more cupboards to take into the shop, I'm going to paint some things and then I hope I can lock myself in tomorrow to just sew, sew, sew.
I had to show you the newest piece that came into the shop. It's an 1800's wooden cash register and is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Can you see the little piece of glass on the top with the slot? That's where you would put your receipts.
The top opens and the drawer pulls out. It still has the keys and it still rings when you open the drawer.
Side view. I could think of a million things to do with this piece!
Another cute little number we got in is this cubby. Perfect to set on top of a desk to sort all of your goodies.
And, yes, spring is at least very close and it will soon be time to think of planting. This washtub was painted by Sharon and would be a great outdoor accent. Who doesn't love crows and sunflowers?
This whole week is going to be CRAZY, but oh so much fun! We will have to take in the new pieces tomorrow and rearrange the shop. Wednesday is our second rug hooking class (Sue will be sure to tell me about all of my mistakes), and I hope to take off for Ohio to the markets on Thursday. Do you get crazy creative ideas going through your head that just won't shut down? I swear, last night I had hives from being so excited about everything!
I can't wait to bring back wonderful new wares for our Spring Open House on March 24 and 25 from 10-5. Hope you can all come visit with us!
Also, don't forget to check out our new selling blog. Some of you have had a hard time getting in, just type http://hollyhillsprimwares.blogspot.com/ It should take you right to it!
Enjoy this springtime weather. The geese and sand cranes are back early and I've even seen a few robins. It's supposed to hit 70 this week - WOO HOO!!! We'll talk again real soon.
Until next time...
