Hi Blog Friends,
I hope everyone is doing well today. I wanted to share some exciting happenings with all my blog buds.
This past weekend I learned of a new prim shop opening in my little town, so I had to go down an check it out. It name is Simple Tymes Primitives. This shop is chocked full of prims and I could not help myself once I walked in. (good thing I just got my tax refund back) heehee.
I have always wanted an antique Hoosier and antique Pie Safe and guess what~ they had both. Most of the ones I’ve seen in my travels where either to high priced for my taste or in very poor condition.
Look at this beautiful Hoosier! It has all the bells and whistles!
The flour sieve even has the original screen and crank in it! I fell in love with it as soon as I seen it.
Here it is all decorated in my kitchen.
See the little chicks in the picture, I got those a few years ago at a shop in PA. They are all hand felted and oh so cute =) The tin box sitting on there is an old biscuit box, it has a paper label inside that reads~Maryland Biscuit Company. One of my favorites.
Here’s the pie safe. Yep, couldn’t leave without it too.
I asked the shop owner if the tin was original to the safe, cause its in such nice condition and he said it was. There’s not a lick of rust on it so I’m not sure.
Here it is all decked out. I'm using the inside for storage since I can’t leave the doors open. Great place to hide some of my craft supplies =)
See the grungy eggs in the pie pan? I made them the other night to put on top of the safe. I used the paper Mache eggs I purchased and just painted them black, sanded lightly and then put another coat of black paint mixed with a little burnt umber and while still wet, rolled them in cinnamon. I love how they turned out. Looks just like blackened wax eggs!
This is one of my favorite Spring items. I purchased this prim duck last year at an art show in VA, from Millstone Gatherings.
I brought my old Pepsi crate wagon out from storage so my girls could enjoy themselves. It now sits under the pie safe.
I’ve been so occupied with my new purchases that I have not gotten any crafts done. Gonna have to get off here an start on them. I purchased a few new patterns and can’t wait to get to work on them!
Thank you so much for stopping by to share in my excitement. See good things do come to those who wait!
Prim Blessings, Jean
