Oh, good grief. Again with the prims! Zzzzzzzz...
My mom and I had a few days of Mother/Daughter fun shopping for prim treasures and bargains! My mom is so much fun. I can easily say she is my best friend next to my husband. We just laugh and laugh! God has blessed me with a real treasure!
We stopped by The Blue Snickel. I hadn't been there is a few years. I pass it all the time going to and from school, but it isn't open when I go by. We went to the Christmas Open House. When I was last there, I was more country than prim. So, while I liked some of her stuff, the prim things didn't hold my attention. Now, however, all of that has changed. I believe that someone may have slipped on the drool puddle I left on the floor there. Oops. Isn't my birdy cute? I have a mental shopping list for next time... This really is the only "true" prim shop in my area. It beats out Cocalico Creek.
We stopped by Cocalico Creek. I got this box. I have tons of ideas for it. What ideas do you have? We can compare notes!
Not far from The Blue Snickle is an antique store in an old log cabin. I spent $8 on these two items. The strainer I might use for a make-do shoo-fly screen and put a candle in it.
This guy, well I have plans for him. You will have to wait for Christmas for that one...
I got these on eBay for $5. I like them for decoration, but I also plan to use them as an artifact in my history lessons. They look old. I guess that is a good price?
Also eBay, both for around $10. They are very roughly carved. Love them!
Our local nursery, Black Creek Nursery, has a flea market once a year where they usually keep their perennials. I got all of these things and more for about $30. I didn't show all of it. These are my favorites! Although, I forgot to put a picture of the butter mold I got for $5. I will have to show you later.
This I got at Goodwill for $3. I am going to paint it black, add a quart-round lip, and do some distressing to make a writing table. It is the perfect size to hold my lap top. I thought about drilling a shallow hole to put an ink bottle in. What do you think? Any other ideas?
My parents gave me this spool of awesome thread. It is a much deeper brown than my picture shows. It is on a pink bobbin, though. Any ideas as to how I can primify it?
Have a blessed day, my friends! Next time, I am posting some more FALL decor. I love Thanksgiving! I am not ready to put my tree up! Whew! Everyone needs to slow down! ;)
