What a great day! We got to the shop early to turn on lights, put up our tent, set up the yummies and be ready for our customers. It was so much fun to see so many familiar faces and some new ones too.
Our friend Gary Musgrave was kind enough to give us some live entertainment under the tent in front of the shop and he will be back again tomorrow!
Another great creation by Dick, this shelf and crock bench in cobblestone.
Closer view of shelf.
Crock bench filled with crocks and handmade, primitive canisters.
After the open house, we hurried home to get ready for a fabulous wedding reception for our customers/friends Dave and Teresa. The reception was in their beautiful back yard. The tent and decorations were amazing!
Outside of the tent was a "hay bale lounge" complete with a fireplace mantle, electric logs (compliments of Holly Hills Primitives), including wedding pictures and a lamp on the mantle.
They bought this potting bench at our shop to use for a lemonade stand. The lemonade was adults only, but adorable.
Inside of the tent was a "campfire" filled with candles.
Their home has a wonderful wrap-around porch, stone chimney, unbelievable sound system, comfy furniture and overlooks a windchime/rose garden.
They were married yesterday in front of this waterfall next door to their home by Rev. Edward Pedley. We had a delicious meal and great fun. Congratulations to Dave and Theresa. It's been a LONG day with another fun day ahead tomorrow. If you didn't make it to the open house today, we still have lots of great wares to choose from and will be open tomorrow from 10-4 - then it's on to granddaughter Abbey's birthday party. Sleep tight and we hope to see you tomorrow. Until next time...
