Open House pictures...

Good Morning Folks!!!

and a beautiful morning it is here on the farm today!

here are some snaps of saturday's open house to amuse you ~

first, we started the day off with a rumbling noise coming down the drive:

it was our sweet friend Joan in her gorgeous 1949 candy apple red truck!

we parked it out in front of the shop...oh boy did the men-folk fancy it!!

we had gobs of freshly potted herbs for sale,
and displayed them out front in the garden where they came from....

inside, the shop was dressed to welcome the spring and early summer....
porch doors, flowers, drieds....

lots of new items were added and I'm happy to say that most found new homes!

the little rug hooking section that greets you as you enter....

our expanding fabrics section....

old favorites like dolls, samplers and primitive handmades ~

we had a great turnout and I just wanted to thank all who came out & spent time
visiting with us...
we do this because we love it,
and your friendships and patronage are valued more than you know!

and before I forget, the winner of the raffle goodie basket is ~

congrats Susan!

(much xoxoxox to you & your sweet family!)

I will be photographing the finished models for my
Primitive Alphabet Series cross stitch designs today,
and will release them here this week!


have a great day filled with wonderful things!

Blessings from the Farm...

Just LOVE that truck, but I could spend some serious time in the shop looking around, don't tell my husband, spending some serious money too.

Jane said...

The shop and garden look so lovely! It's always good to see you AND Felicia AND Joan AND Peter (thanks for the bridal veil bush) AND Lazy AND Buddy AND Pinocchio AND Daisy AND all the other critters!

Thanks for sharing these photos with those of us too far away to enjoy the "real" thing....Your shop looks wonderful - and much larger on the inside than it looks from the outside! I think I could get into all sorts of trouble there! ;o) And....that truck! Now I want a TRUCK for heavens' sake! Have a great week! Smiles & Hugs, Robin

Cinlyn said...
