Spring Open House ~ pictures

Hello Folks!

thought you all might like to see a few snaps of todays' open house....
we had a perfect Spring day ~ warm temps, sunshine & light breezes.

the bumbler-bees were out in force today,
and those that visited got to see them firsthand...I love them, but unfortunately, they eat the wood siding, poles and wooden gutters on my shop....

So, here is the inside...have a wander around!!

* old-time goodies & prims *

~ folk art & needful things ~

dolls, quilts, bunnies...oh my!
hooked rugs & mats, woodenware and handwork too!

we had a great crowd...always nice seeing our friends ~
from near & far :)

...unique items for rug hookers ~ one of a kinds and originals!

Peter potted up some fresh herbs,
and everyone went home with some as our gift to enjoy in their gardens...
here are sweet annie & spearmint pots ~

~ we decorated the porch and garden too, with goodies for your primitive home ~

... a little front porch swingin'
(hi Cindy!)

Here's our friends shopping for their goodies ~

...lots to look at, LOTS to love!!!
and sweet treats to eat, too :))

~ wall-to-wall primitives and farmhouse stuff....
love love love ~

we especially love when we have a bunch of folks come in...so exciting and fun for us!
I hope you all enjoyed visiting with us today!

Thanks to Cindy & Joan for helping out today, and for putting up with me (always) ~
and to the kind folk who came on out...and to YOU for your visit here on my blog!
...c'mon by and see us soon!!!!
Blessings from the Farm!

Such a great tour. Love your shop! might have to do a road trip some day :)

Nancee said...

Love, love, love your shop... Wish it was not so far from Wisconsin. I have sweet annie everywhere(literaly) but it's just starting to peek out of the ground. The wraths I made last fall have retained that wonderful smell. Happy Spring.
