Oh My….


It has been over a week since I posted!!!

I can’t hardly believe that.  I apologize for my absence but trust me you haven't missed anything exciting!! LOL!!

Work, Work, Work….. that is just about all that has went on in my world.

Well, Saturday I did make it over to a little antique store.

Where I found a few prim goodies.

Here is what I got.

A small advertising crock. I added the homespun to the top.

Now I have a total of three of these.

One I have one above my stove, the other two I have placed inside my baker’s cabinet.

I also got these two old quilt slices…

I also got some stacks of fabric. Not old but wonderful prim designs. Forgot to take pictures of that though.

Lets see, I bought an adorable little wooden box from Yankee Lane Primitives, it came in this week.

When I first saw the package sitting on my porch, I thought it was the herb boxes I had won. But instead it was my other adorable box. 

My gosh, that was quick!!!  I had only ordered it a few days before.

Check this out…

Isn't it wonderful!!

$3 for the box $2 shipping = Total $5!!!!

Wow! You cant beat that!! :)

It is now displayed in my Americana bedroom with all my other Abe Goodies!!

Susie also included a little bundle of Sweet Ann.

A Prim Girl can never have enough Sweet Ann!! ;)

I placed it inside a little basket I have hanging in my kitchen.

I did find some time to make some grubby candles.

And I made another prim candle sack.

I think these are so cute!

Perfect for sitting inside wood bowls or tucked into a cupboard.

I also placed one of the candles I made inside an antique wooden spool.

I think it made the most adorable prim candle holder.

And that has been my week! :)

I hope you all have had more excitement than I have had lately!! Hehehee!

At least it seems that the snow has stopped. So definitely is something to be happy and excited about!!

Well, I better go get some cleaning done and try to get caught up on things since today is my last day off.

Until Next Time….

Take Care and Prim Filled Blessings to you ALL!!!

My Goodness, Tammy.
If I didn't know better, I'd say that Abe box was MADE for you. He's so at home there. I know he's happy now.

Your herb boxes should be there tomorrow. I checked the tracking number and it says they have arrived in the destination country...lol...that usually means you get them the next day!

Tammy ~ A Primitive Place said...

No problem Holli!!
I didnt mean to sound like I was worried about them. Because Im not at all.
With all the crazy weather and snow I know it has the PO running slow right now.
Please let me apologize if I came across as being worried....because I honestly didnt mean it that way.
Thanks so much,
Tam
