Just had a great weekend. My sister in law came down from Maynooth to help me set up my shop.
We had a great time and it looks wonderful. Here are few pictures.
Hope you all had a great weekend.

Candle cupboard I purchased in Ohio and I found the perfect table at my friend Gillian's shop, Pine Sampler.

Some plants outside the shop. The little heart is called a puddler and it was a gift hand made by my friend Earlene.  I love it!

I did some weeding and dead heading outside the shop today.
Yesterday we hung the crow.

A picture of some of my graniteware collection.


I just had a great weekend. Spent Saturday working at the "Harvest at the Mill" show in Holly Michigan and then I spent the night at my good friend Earlene's home. I just LOVE Earlene's home. It has been featured in Country Sampler and A Primitive Place magazine in the past. It is just gorgeous, so many great primitives in her home. It was just so cozy. I just loved visiting with Earlene and her husband and of course her 2 lovely cats, they made feel so welcome. Earlene gave me a tour of her lovely gardens and they are just breathtaking.
On Sunday she took me antiquing and we visited a couple of lovely Primitive shops and her daughters Antique Mall. An unforgettable weekend for sure. I hope you all have a great week.

I was out and about last weekend and I made this purchase. I have always wanted an Antique PFAFF machine and I finally got one. It works like a charm! I'll be sewing in style now.
