This is a closeup of one of our trees that Dianne did. Rusty bell garlands, cream bell wreaths with touches of red to an otherwise neutral tree.  Log houses, snowmen and Santa faces share a spot in this tree, also. Love the banner twinned through and the wired burlap that was added to the top of the tree (we sell by the roll). Also back in are the rice  twinkle lights with their eight functions, way too cool.
Do you need some really prim Christmas cards?  We have a nice selection come see.

All Santas!

Tiny santa sitting in a resin scoop. He adds a nice touch to one of Primitiques smaller wood pieces.

A variety of Santa's ,all handmade by some very talented ladies.

Santa even comes on a hooked pillow, bringing a fun touch to a sofa.
Handpainted Santa gourds by my friend Merrilyn, another very talented lady.

                Prim Santa tucked into some twigs.

These are just a few of the handmade Santa's that are in the shop this year. I just received another box full of Santa's and snowmen but did not have a picture of them yet. To come latter I suppose.

Come by and check us out. We have been busy restocking since last week's open house. I will be going in early today to put out lamps, short glass chimneys, and to be honest not sure what is in all those boxes. More shipments coming, too!

Little More Christmas

Primitive tree with creams and tans. Bags of goodies tied to the tree holding candles,sprigs or even a Santa.
Chubby Snowman sitting proudly in a metal tub surrounded by greens.

   Cupboard shelf filled with Christmas cheer .

Santa jetting away in his airplane.

  Another fat snowman ,wreath and groupings on our old door.

Remember the cabinet at the back from a few weeks ago? Now it is filled with greenery tucked amid the red ware. Santa on table has found a new home but there are still some other great Santa's in the shop.

Christmas Preview

 Getting close now for Candle Light and Cider Nov. 6 -10th and the elves have been hard at work doing their magic in the store.  I enjoy seeing it all come together with touches of Christmas here and there.
 Santa nestles in an old basket. A little more to do tomorrow and we will be ready for the first day on Tuesday.

Almost Time!!

It's about that time to start decorating the shop for Christmas. Can hardly wait but the work does not begin until Sunday and Monday.

This is one of many Arnett's Santa's that we will have for this year. I took a quick picture then tucked him away for Open House week. Only a little peek for now .

Prim Shots

Redware by Stephen Earp. I like the contrast against the black cabinet. Soon we will fill the cabinet with greenery and seasonal delights. A little sparse right now but not for long.
Room shot waiting for Sunday when we start changing out for Christmas. Eager to get started but have to be patient only a few more days to go then viola Candle Light and Cider Open House Nov. 6-10th.
I went on a Witch Hunt today pulling what few witches were still lurking. They have been tucked away safely for next year.
