A basket full of apples handpainted by Merrilyn. They are actually gourds shaped like apples , that she has painted and aged. The apples would certainly be a good "in between" before we start doing our fall decorating. Add some to an old wood bowl for a bit of color.

Mabel is one of Arnett's Country Store creations with her aged fabric dress and bonnet. She seems right at home in the little make do chair. Mabel is a handmade, limited edition being number twenty nine of a hundred. She is visiting for awhile but is looking for a new home to rest herself.

This old butter mold has eight different designs to imprint the butter. The mold is in two pieces making it easier to remove the butter. I found it in an old kitchen book dating the mold around 1910's. The butter pats are a few examples of a collection I recently purchased.
