Been doing a little primitive tweaking since it has been so hot lately. In June and July I went to a few shops, Settler's Crossin, Nanbrook Farm, Country Heart, Primitive Souls and Gatherings. This stepback hutch is my favorite, a friend of mine husband made it years ago. It sits in my tavern dining room.
I love the whaler table lamp I purchased from Wanda at Gatherings, she has some fantastic items, she is so kind to ship items to me. The bottles I found at Nanbrook Farm and the two little fly screens at Settlers Crosin, love the table runner from Nanbrook Farm.
The small brown crock I picked up from my last trip to Settler's Crossin, love the old quilt used as a cover. I had picked up the reproduction heart cutting board from Ann years ago.
I love cabinets, decided to put this bittersweet cabinet on top of another one for right now, found it at Country Heart, love the candle scounce found it at splinter and rags. This area needs something, just not quite sure what yet.
Went to Gibson Mill for my anniversary this year, there is a fairly new booth there, Primitive Souls, I actually meet Norma that day, she was putting items in her expanded booth. Love this hanging shelf.
These pictures took dark, just not enough sun light in that room. I have started collecting pinkeeps, fell in love with a few Amy had made at Nanbrook Farm. The one in the background I purchased from Settler's Crossin, just love makedo's.
Another makedo pinkeep found at Gibson Mill, there are several primitive booths at this very large antique mall just outside of Concord, N.C., Nanbrook Farm, Country Heart, Primitive Souls, Ful O' Bright Ideas, and several others, great place to get lost in primitive finds. I also collect covered books.
Sorry for the dark pictures, I have been collecting winders for a while now, Wanda at Gatherings shipped this one to me, just love it. A very old basket holds old gardening tools.
Last time at Settler's Crossin I picked up this shelf, just perfect for my narrow hallway. Another winder I had found, and a new doll, can't pass them up.
Been tweaking with this arrangement, don't know if I am happy with it yet. Another pinkeep, shoes, and a sampler.
I have gone more primitive, especially in my kitchen. I moved my desk out of the kitchen and put it under my new window shelf. Moved my bucket bench in here, loaded it up with resent finds.
Another bottle, found the peach butter jar at Gibson Mill and I love the bean jar, picked it up at Settler's Crossin.
Found the old bowl at Primitive Souls, they do make furniture, know Norma's booth will be one of my favorites when I go to Gibson Mill.
Another find from Gatherings, yes the last box Wanda shipped to me was huge. Love the old nail kegs, this one has the biscuits label on it.
Love the old pinkeep made from a snuff can, another bottle also picked up from Amy at Nanbrook Farm.
This is the view at the end of my kitchen, my kitchen is long and narrow, and hardly no wall space. I will be replacing the floor soon with a wood laminate and repainting my kitchen cabinets.
Fell in love with the corn from Gatherings, just love handmade items, think it really makes a home come together. Well just a few items picked up along the way with my one day trips last couple of months. Several of the shops will be having tax free weekend and yard sales the first of august, never know what primitive finds I will come across. Everyone have a great weekend, I will be working on fall handmades, september is fast approaching. Hugs. Vicky
