This is a picture of 6 olde soup bowls and saucers (Made in England)..the color is bright and cheerful and my first reaction to these is what fun "sugar bowls" they would make ( my dishes at home do not match...a mix-mosh of anything) I added an olde silver-plated sugar spoon to each one (they are tarnished but clean)!! This "A" is an olde pattern for making "umbrella" panels. All wood with metal strips going down each side I am supposing to make nice straight cutting lines.
This is an olde "new" store stock whisk broom....I added the label - saw it somewhere on the internet and thought it would be fun to try -
Very primitive cathedral window has been made into a mirror.....it measures (I think) 39 1/2 in. by 33 1/2 in. - the mirror is new and the window is awesome! It fit perfect in one of the rooms between two windows on the second floor! Leah Webb makes us these reproduction "pockets" for the store...using reproduction civil war fabric - the door leads to our attic classroom - remember the olde nursery rhyme "Lucy Locket lost her pocket" ? A sunflower print......won't be long and sunflowers will be stretching their tall heads to find the sun (they will have a hard time here in PA !!) I think sunflowers are one of the most beautiful and useful flowers...they give much pleasure to the eyes - large or small - Feed the birds and feed us too! I am hooked on chocolate covered sunflower seeds! One of Tony's herb dryers.....I am "TRYING" to harvest the herbs but we are just getting too much rain. Over on The Herbal Bouquet blog - Andrea from Crow's Nest Primitive Shoppe (http://www.crowsnestprimitiveshoppe.com/) has the most beautiful potpourri filled with larkspur (Country Crow Potpourri) - so I want to dry my larkspur (as she wrote how pretty it looked sprinkled in a gift basket).....I did manage to cut some..but it looked so pretty in the front garden that I hesitated and now rain rain rain (Are you sick of me talking about the rain!!) sorry!! Hope you enjoyed alittle bit of The Cinnamon Stick.....Happy Father's Day to all of your hubbies and fathers....we will be celebrating when the kids come home from Disney !!!
