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.
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 !!!

The sun came in and out all day but the best was NO RAIN !! I even sat outside to have lunch - I am grateful for this day....however torrential rains are forecasted for tomorrow (I won't even listen to the weather - customers told me)
Yesterday, after a crappy day, my transmission seized up as I turned in our driveway....I was sick....The car was towed to the Transmission Shop and all I could see was lots of $$$$$ signs. They fixed it....it was a hose that cracked and threw transmission fluid all over the motor and we are the luckiest people today !!! Some days are just made for happiness !!
My son, Tad, called from his vacation at Disney and said it was sunny and 98 degrees....he was calling from poolside - ahhhhh to be young again!!!

Each doll is signed and if you have ever purchased a doll from Turkey Hollow then you know each one has a very special message on the "derriere" (to put it kindly)! If you would like any info or better pictures just email me and I will be happy to oblige. I'll save the "kitties" for tomorrow!!

The green farmhouse worktable made it into the store today too....sadly not many customers did.....(wrinkling my nose in dismay) !!! It was just too pretty of a day - perfect for a picnic or ride in the country (hey I am in the country....maybe everyone decided to have a picnic) !! Monday and Tuesday is MY weekend and I have lots of catching up to do - housework, sewing and creating....my picturetrail has been neglected too....NEVER ENOUGH THYME !!!

We also got these other waterpails on Sunday along with the little #4 ! The one in the middle has great olde light green paint. ...and isn't this red metal tool box a perfect planter !!! Tony planted some thyme, peppermint and a marigold (a very favorite flower of mine) in olde Maxwell House coffee tins. He put holes in the bottom for drainage....container gardening is fun! Sharon and I are taking off together tomorrow to pick up the herbs and have a "play date" !! We are hoping to go to Lititz and then to a NEW antique store I just heard about.....woohoo!!!
