Well I started moving things around. Love how the new pieces look in this group! The butcher block is sold but I get to look at it for a while so I moved it up front. Going to be reworking the shop and making what is left of Christmas look better Gotta get going now!Enjoy your day!!
Got this great oyster colored buther block last week!! Love it! I am going to work on putting it in a group with the new cupboard!! Moved all the green pieces to the back this morning and I am putting this group up by the counter. What is so nice about this is you can actually sit at it. It is nice table height and it is not horribly heavy like some I have had. Love the shape and the old paint. Getting some great ideas going with this new stuff. Have to start playing with the furniture again.!! Lots of great Christmas left but it is going out the door with everyone decorating now!
Well I thought I better write something today since I got asked by three people that had checked out my blog and noticed I had not written for quite a while. Just as I was ready to write google told me I had to pay for an upgrade to post more pictures. Just got that done tonight! Had a busy thanksgiving week and feeling ready to change the whole shop around. Just not sure where to start. Brought this great screen front cupboard in today! I thought it was putty colored but today it looked a little green to me. Not quite sure but love the old latch and cut out bottom. It is a nice size! Not too large but just right for many areas!! Still trying to figure out what I can do to fix a grouping around it!! I am feeling the need to shake up the shop but I know what a mess I make when I start this and dragging my feet on making such a mess. Lots of great gift ideas still in the shop so stop in for decorating and gift ideas!
Brought up this little table to add to the foot of the bed!! Just got in this book press that attatches to the table. Early old wood screws to tighten it. The old sifter is holding some pears! This room turned out great but now I have mounds outside!
Started doing some cleaning today! Got the little room upstairs all redone and cleaned. Loved how it turned out!! Took out the minnow buckets and made it more like a log cabin!! Love how it turned out but I sure made a mess everywhere else!!
I love old early mortars!! Can you tell? Just arrived many new dry attic finish mortars!! Some have old iron bands!! The real large one in the other photo sold today!! This is what is left!! Love them!! Trying to fit in all the new prims!!
We are adding many wonderful primitives to the shop this week! We have been out gathering for several days and will be adding more daily. This is a group of two early treen compotes an early matchholder and the tray they are on was used to dry apples!! The match holder sold this morning!
Started redoing the window today into a lodge theme. Lots of soft northern pines. Have some wonderful old green skis with metal repair and tomorrow I have a most amazing piece to add. You will just have to wait and see. We have live window displays the Friday after Thanksgiving so I am getting ready for that!
Thank you to all the wonderful customers that came to our Holiday Open House!! Several people traveled far and spent the nite! It was an amazing sucess!! I am just showing a few of the things that remain!! Plenty of choices to go to new homes!! Will be reworking the shop this week. We have live window displays the Friday nite after Thanksgiving so I have to get working on that. Lots of new ideas buzzing through my head so it will probably all look different next time you stop!!
