Open New Years Day!

Have had several people call and ask if we will be open on New Years Day, and the answer is YES, we will be. Will be open from 10-5, so while the men are watching football, if your not really into football, you can come and get your primitive fix.
Yesterday we got to see our friends that now live in Carlise, Pa, Rebecca Hayes and her family stopped by on their way home from Georgia, always good to see them and their boys, who are both, ALL boy, Will found a pumpkin we had put in the woods and came out dragging it, to take back to Pa, he carried that thing about 1/2 an acre. They are both such sweet little guys!!! And they are growing up so fast.
Wanted to share with you some new dipped strands of lights we got in, but I forgot to take a picture, but will do it tomorrow, they are 35ct strands of lights that are dipped and oh so prim, they are selling like hotcakes and I will need to get in another order. Anyway, more on that tomorrow. We also have single bulbs that are dipped, that are really cool!!!

We finally got our tree up!!!

Thanks to my pal Wendy, in Missouri, I think I can post a pic of the boys on Santas lap, this is one of my favorites, where have the years gone?
Casey made this when he was just 4, that was 21 years ago.

Seems as we get older and with doing things for the shop, every year, getting our tree up gets later and later! I was beginning to wonder if we were gonna get it up this year! Well, yesterday was the day! We finally have our tree in our living room! Putting up the tree for me brings back so many memories, our tree is not a primitive tree, its more a family and friend tree, I have so many wonderful ornaments that friends have made and given me through the years, and lots that Chad and Casey made in preschool and in cub scouts, and then there are the ones of them taken with Santa, those are some of my favorites. When the boys were small we used to go to Lazarus, in Columbus, Ohio every year for them to see Santa and to see the wonderful window displays that Lazarus used to do, they were magical! We would have the boys picture taken on Santas lap, and they were made into ornaments, I tried to take a picture, but it kept glaring, not sure what I was doing wrong, will try again later. Anyway, we now have our tree, and everytime I walk by it, I smile, remembering when the boys were small.

As Time Goes By.....Its Here!!!

We just got our shipment of the new Judy Condon book in today, gonna hunker down with it tonight, flipped through it at the shop today, and its a good one, I noticed there are lots of pictures of bathrooms, or privvys. With the route most magazines have taken, its nice to get a book with some "real" country primitive homes in them. I think you will want to add this to your library!!!!
