Wall Cabinet

Two door wall cabinet looks interesting hanging over this little prim table. I had it made in the aged brown paint and had hoped there was a place at home for it but not the case. I had plans for the inside also but it will have to be a treasure for someone else.

These darling jars of cookies are made by OH SUGAR. The crispy little cookies are in chocolate chip or chocolate brownie. Also chocolate covered almonds in cello bags. A perfect gift for someone in your life. Yummy !!

Gathered Oldies

A wood tote made from a box. I love the way the sides are a boot jack shape. The handle is leather and certainly can be put to a ton of uses.

Old children's schoolbooks.

A gathering of containers from stoneware to tinware.

Dough Board and Bowls

The character in this "old " bowl fool's the eye but upon closer examination you will find it is resin. The bowl has all the character marks of an early bowl without out the hefty price of its predecessor. Nice assortment of bowls have just arrived with several having a metal mend.

Two more resin bowls add to this kitchen grouping. The dough board is perfect to add to a counter top because it can be easily moved if needed.

Just The Right Words

I love the saying on this sign. It gives me a warm, comforting feeling. Signs make a perfect addition to a wall grouping. Sometimes it is the one thing that will fit well with pictures and " fill" the space.

A collection of signs of all sizes and shapes.

Cozy Up

When the weather is cold like it is right now I think cozy home thoughts. We are not getting the snow as in other parts of the country but for us the thirties is chilly. It is the perfect time to light those candles , put a log on the fire and enjoy. I am burning Black Crow 's Prairie Butter in the store right now and it has a delicious scent of warm apple butter. Yum !! I love the pantry cake and shoo fly to left of the picture also, they speak "homey".

Speaking of being cozy these new sheets just came in from Pennsylvania this week. They are loom made and have a very soft texture. Now wouldn't it be fun nestled under these sheets?

Mantle Top Groupings

New Year and time to spiff up things. After the Christmas comes down its's time to move and redo.
A little grouping atop one of the mantles. This is all set off by the new paint in the room, Restrained Gold.

Corner Cabinet

This is a wonderful corner cabinet with square nails. It is wide so it really has a lot of space inside. Recently acquired a couple of weeks ago I feel it will make a perfect addition to the country home. On the top sits a crock with the lighted pussy willow. I need to add more crocks, a basket or perhaps a doll. It looks a little sparse at the moment but it will not take long to change that to a grouping.

Fresh Paint !!

I love the new color in the front room of the store. It is called Cardboard and I think it shows the furniture off well. Finally have taken time to take pictures after painting, redoing and putting away Christmas . It has been a busy past week.

The over sized chair and ottoman came in right before Christmas plus the love seat to the left. I know you can barely see but the fabric in the love seat looks like an old coverlet.
