~ a quickie ~

Just a real quick post today...I'm still not quite ready to call my kitchen redecorating done so those pics are still yet to come...but last year when I posted my Christmas decorating pics, many folks inquired about the tree you see in the header picture of my blog so I wanted those folks to know that I have stocked that tree in my shoppe! is the 24 inch Primitive Pine's so cute and looks wonderful plopped into an olde bucket or crock or simply left on its own...I also carry some sweet Treenware pieces, all MADE IN THE USA, that this tree fits perfectly in too!
It's Small Business Saturday but we should all patronize the small businesses before the big box stores EVERYDAY!!!...and buy AMERICAN MADE at any given chance!!...have fun shopping!

~ An Autumn Saturday Afternoon ~

Wow it's been over a month since my last blog post!...time sure does fly!!'s this fine Autumn Saturday afternoon treating you?...ever since we returned from our weekend in New England, I've been inspired to try and add more primitive touches to our home. I really wanted to paint all the woodwork a dark color but have come to the conclusion that it's just not possible in this house because all of the windows are white vinyl and that would just look weird I'm thinking soooo...I will work on changing the things that I can! First project was the lighting in the family room...I have ordered some sconces that I'm waiting on to arrive and when hubs has them installed I will post pictures! Then I've moved to the kitchen...boy it is really hard to prim that place up with the white appliances, formica countertops, and vinyl floor, but I'm trying! I ordered a bunch of signs and gameboards and appliance cupboards for the coffee maker and soon as those arrive I should have quite a few pics to share!! For now though you will have to settle for some foliage pics that I took a couple of weeks ago. I went on a drive up to the Blue Ridge Parkway all by myself and it was actually kinda nice! LOL...hubs was going to go with me but a job popped up that he had to go do. Pictures do not do this place justice I tell ya:

This is at one of the many overlooks:

It's such a nice road to travel:

The colors are really popping all around here at home finally too!...what a lovely time of year Autumn is!

Have a great weekend!
