Don't you just love this "Chippy Cupboard" I just couldn't resisit bringing this one home,,this is what is looks like after I gave it a good wash down,,it was really dirty.I sanded it just a bit as I wanted the paint to stay on hence the name"Chippy Cupboard".You wouldn't believe what I had to dig thru to get this cupboard out. It was a mess,but so well worth it. It is missing some knobs,but I will find some and replace them. I added some stain to it today to tone down some of the white paint. I will post it after I finish it. Seems like I am possessed with buying sellers cabinets and hutches and cupboards. I have bought 3 in the past 3 weeks. They just keep calling my name and I just keep answering the call. This one will go to my new space at the Salisbuy Emporium in Salisbury,NC. I will post all that info later

Here is the latest creation that I had been working on. I named her Annie Mae,I don't know why,just did. She turned out really neat. I did some grunging on her,not too much.She is holding her favorite friend,Ginger.The colors on her just matched her hair,how special??Will be adding more things as I get them ready. It want be long before spring is here( I wish).I hope Spring didn't hear that the groundhog saw his shadow.
Just wanted to share a picture of my old stove that I got for Christmas. It is a 1930's electric stove,and it still works. It is in great shape. This thing was pretty fancy back in 1930,don't you think?? I saw it in a hardware warehouse,couldn't believe it. Bought it,called my husband and told him I needed a favor.He said where are you and what have you bought?Well he went and picked it up for me,it weighs about 300lbs.So it will have to stay put in the spot in the shop for now,,,

Just trying to figure all this blogging out. I do love to read everyones blogs about their favorite things to do and collect. I have a Country/Primitive gift shop.I have been blessed to have had the chance to do this now for about 15 years.It is alot of hard work.My husband and I make some of the things that go in the shop and I order the other amount that goes in. But that is getting harder and harder to do with the economy. Finding things that are not made over seas is just about not gonna happen. I would like some input on this and what other primitive/country people out there think. Here is one of the dolls that I make,it's not as prim as some of my other things,but I thought she was a cutie
Just wanted to share this picture with you and offer you some advice. Don't wear crocks in the snow. I just wanted to walk out in the snow this morning,because it has been along time since we got any. And Bam! I hit the ground.Didn't take hubby long to grab the camera.But it was really cold and wet.All in a good days work of doing nothing and eating.
