Touches Of Fall

A couple of prim girls with fabric pumpkins.

An old crock topped off with a gourd and pumpkin.

A quilt crane gets a bittersweet wreath for an extra touch of fall. By the way we got in another shipment of wreaths, including the larger size. I can not say enough how I love fresh bittersweet.

I love fresh bittersweet and this shipment just arrived. It came early this year and I am thrilled...it will give us a longer time to enjoy. This is one of the bunches full of berries.

The bittersweet has been added to a birch wreath and it is just one of many sizes.

The cakes are ready ,the store has been tweaked and now pretty bittersweet.....what more could a girl ask for??? Maybe smiling faces this week to celebrate fifteen years of Gatherings. Come see what is new .

Pumpkin Cuties

These little guys have the sweetest faces. They will look cute tucked in a cupboard or just about anywhere. I think maybe they are waiting to greet everyone on Thursday when we will Celebrate Fifteen Years at Gatherings.

Celebrating Fifteen Years!!

Celebrating !!! Sept. 15 ,16,17

Join us as we celebrate the good times together. I appreciate each of you that have walked through the doors over the years. I also thank those that follow the blog and encourage me with your comments. It warms the heart to know there are so many that love prims as I do.

We will be offering a 15 % discount and a drawing for a gift basket in the store. Of course what is a celebration with out cake? I will busy in the kitchen this weekend whipping up some scratch cakes just for you.

Settling In

The red dry sink found a place in the shop after I attached the hand pump. The buggy seat at the left makes a good place to display some of the old brown crocks I just brought in.A little fall tweaking and this dry sink found a spot to sit a spell.

The little wash stand with the scalloped back and pull out board works well as a bed side piece.

Fall Here And There

A mustard cabinet with drawers made in Pennsylvania gets a touch of fall with a fabric pumpkin perched on top. Bits of orange are peeking out everywhere.

This folk art kitty with his jack o' lantern is made in Tennessee by a very talented folk artist. He arrived while I was away and his big smile greeted me when I walked into the store.

Browns on the bed gives a feeling of fall and especially the extra touch of a painted gourd. The coverlet is a perfect weight and the one at home gets my husband's approval.

Primitives Arrived !!

After our trip this is part of the unload. The red dry sink has a nifty pump that will be reattached. I love the dry sink on the right with the scalloped back and a place to sit a candlestick. It is always fun to pull things off to see what we have gathered.

I was at the shop today getting things worked in. My van is loaded with smalls that are priced and ready to make their appearance on Tuesday when we open.

Buying Trip Pictures

Don't you want to be able to peek in an old barn to see if there is a hidden treasure? There were some interesting barns along the way.

An old downtown area that would make interesting shops in this little town. Love the old brick, arched windows and the stone sidewalks.

Brake for any antique sign and you could be rewarded.

We are back from our trip and with a new load of country primitives. We loved seeing the countryside and collecting these treasures.
