Randoms: warning picture heavy.

Happy Wednesday blog friends!

Thought I'd share some random pictures of ~ Old, Antique and Collectibles from around the homestead.
Eve from Lee Hill Primitives shared on her blog and challenged her followers to do the same.

Love the Hoosier! See the little whale tale with the shoofly on top. I won it in one of Carol's from Firecracker Kid's giveaways awhile back. 

Pie Safe~ love the ditty bags Linda from Parkers Paradise gifted me. And the blackened beeswax pineapple from SIL Amy of Bumble Bee Lane.

1800's two piece hutch~ It's too tall for my downstairs rooms, so I have it stored in a spare room upstairs. I wish I could incorporate it somewhere I could enjoy daily. I was told by an antique appraiser, it was originally used as a cabinet in a old pharmacy to store drugs and is a rare find. It has locks on the doors, but the keys are long gone. You can't tell in the pic, but the glass is wavy and has bubbles in it. It's more beautiful in person, than this pic shows.

Showing the bottom of the hutch.
I love old wood boxes. This is an old tool box I keep candle fixings in.

Old baskets. I have two of these 1800's gatherings baskets.
My boyfriends grandfather/mother actually used these back in the late 1800's to take to the market to purchase veggies.

Old typesetters drawer, I use to display my tiny collectibles.

I love old bottles. The ones on the left I found while clearing brush in the woods. The ones on the right I have   purchased from various places.

Old milk bottles are another collectible I love. 

I love to collect Americana too.
 The lantern behind the stars has a history, so I scanned the handwritten note for you to read. How cool is that!

Love old advertisements!

Hand carved Noah's and Ark. Noah is my favorite story in the bible.

I purchased this carved penguin about 10yrs ago. As soon as I seen his name I had to have it. My little brothers name is Tommy. Love ya Tom!

I've done a lot of stitchery's thru the years, but this is my prized possession. It took me a whole year to do~ you see I made this for my grandmom. When she passed away my mom got it and when she was diagnosed with cancer, she gave it back to me. I will always cherish this stitchery.

Not a good pic, but its an oil painting of my boyfriends family business they owned and ran for many years.

Hey Amy, this is the pic that scares Julie when she comes to stay. Lol.
It's an oil painting of my boyfriends great, great grandfather. I don't think it's that scary, do you?

I have so much more I could share, but most of its still in storage. You see, this old farmhouse is small and the rooms are smaller, so I try to surround my self with my most favorites for now. 
I hope you enjoyed your visit as much as I enjoy you all stopping by.

I'll tell ya, I've been busy working on manly bunnies these days and now I'm having nightmares  dreams of them. Lol.
Have a wonderful week my friends!

Hi Blog Friends,

Gosh, it’s already Wednesday! I just don’t know where the time is going!!

Well, today we’re suppose to get some snow~ it’s been nice and sunny up until today, so it’s been easy working on spring items.

I did manage to get some bunnies done this past week.

This standing bunny is a design by Olde Homestead Barn. I changed him a bit and have him carrying grungy carrots instead of flowers.

Prim bunny with a pocket of carrots! I love this bunny tuck~ it’s also an Olde Homestead Barn design.

Awe, little Snooper…. He does this while I’m playing working on the computer. My bratty sweet little boy!

Gonna try an get a bunch more crafting in today. It’s gonna be hard to work on spring when it’s snowing outside. And last night I did something to my right shoulder again. I can hardly lift it. The chiro won’t be in til Monday, so I’ll have to tuff it out til then. ugh!

Have a great day and be safe if your out in the snow.

Baby Chicks

Finished up some of these baby chicks last night. It’s a Bird in the hand primitives pattern. I did some with bonnets and some without.

I love these chicks in a cracked egg! Made from a Kentucky Primitives pattern.

It’s starting to look like spring around my house, with all these chicks, bunnies and carrots. It’ll be here before we know it!

The weather had been feeling like it too, but this morning woke up to 30 degrees and the weekends gonna be cold. What freaky weather we’re having!

I’ll be working on bunnies today and over the weekend. My one consignment shop is setting up for Spring/Easter  Feb. 8th, so I gotta get busy!

Have a wonderful weekend!
