Tuesday Display Chain "Stripes"

Sorry, I'am little late getting my display pictures posted. I worked out at the Shop in Genoa today. Working tomorrow too. Making a little pocket change, well maybe. Might have a bit of pile of goodies, I MIGHT like to purchase. Misi's theme today is "STRIPES". I was going to snap pictures around the homestead, then I had a thought...LOL... Take a few out at the shop. So enjoy just a quick couple of shots from the shop today....


When one has enough, of the Family Heirloom Weavers goodies... Well, if it's possible to have enough, then there's Weavers Corner dish towels.... Love these, use them as hand towels in the bathrooms. So hard to fine the perfect prim towels for bathrooms!
Oh, so many FHW'S, SO LITTLE MONEY :(.......
I did start to take pictures around the homestead last night... never finished up... but thought I would at least post the ones I took....


Off to visit every one's posts! Have a great night..... Thoughts on who might be getting the boot on Dancing with the Stars????? OLM

YIPPEE!!! A Estate Sale & most wonderful swap goodies!

OH, Mr. Mailman was at my door this AM!!! Neighbors might say AGAIN??? LOL... Swap goodies from Becky over at primitivesnstitchin! WOW!!! I was spoiled, I really think I came out on the winning end of this swap. We had so much fun teasing each other, oh the hints! So, when John, the mailman, YES, I know my mailman by name, was in the driveway, I was moving pretty fast to see what FINALLY was in the box!!! Becky is a wonderful crafter and made everything herself!

A group shot just doesn't do justice to everything I received! We talked about our favorite season to decorate, collect etc..... so......


With Halloween being my favorite time of year, look at the great witch!! OMG!!! LOVE HER!!! Hubby, is going to call her names! So you know she's good and ugly, and prim perfect!


I am a major snowman collector, Love this guy! He is going to stay out all year, just can't bring myself to put him away... Well that is true of Ms. QUEENIE WITCH! YUP, just named her that. LOL
Oh the penny rug. I have not done one of these yet, have several patterns, always in the plans to get to0...but.....


OH MY!!! I don't quilt at all! Truly, I am not a good sewer, that is why making prims work, any mistake, well it's prim! LOL... This in itself would of been good enough, the work... What a great runner!!! thanks Becky!---still a few more


OK, I have to admit, love the box when I pulled it out... BUT until I took the picture I NEVER saw this side with the great little penny rug on the side, I admit, a blond moment... LOL


Super cute bunny and eggs in the old berry basket... I LOVE everything, THANKS so much Becky!!!!


WELL..... Then on my way out to run errors ESTATE SALE!!! U-turn!!! Now in my area, garage sales not so good... so much kids stuff. so little antique prim and if there is some, it's so expense.... Now there was some stuff so expensive, so passed that over that stuff, BUT still found a few goodies....image that....


Great water crock, only $35....look at the child's toy tops... $5 each

close up of the tops, love these.....


Few small goodies and good prices....

These vintage table clothes, in really good shape both for $20. Definitely worth the stop, even if I was late to a appointment.... OOPS!

Newly Acquired!!! Tuesday Display Chain

My name is Olde Lady Morgan and I have a addiction! Primitives!!! I need to stop, I need to pass up that great deal, I need to say enough is enough, YA RIGHT! LOL
I feed off my other prim friends, these wonderful prim blogs... I ONLY wish I had a bigger home? Well, Probably not, I would have to keep it clean, UGH!

I mentioned before I worked at the shop last week, and had a few pennies in my pocket, just screaming for a "FEW" new prims to come to their forever home.... How perfect is Misi's theme this week... Perfect timing to show off.... Now I haven't found everything a new home yet. Homestead really a mess... I need to clean, those shoots for the back can't some soon enough. Here's keeping my fingers crossed they work!.....

So I have wanted a blanket crane since the gathering room finished up... Haven't come across one...Then Sandy at the Shop has a couple make some great prim furniture. They made a great shelf with a blanket crane attached... Didn't need the shelf... asked if they would make just the crane... 2 days later done! OMG!!! Hubby hung it on Sunday for me.... Wasn't sure it would make the area I wanted it in "too busy".... but I love it!



All it needs is a prim doll to hang off the end, I think.... I wonder who can make one???

Found this yesterday at the Primitive Chick... this will make a great planter for the all summer flowers!!!

Some fun, unique mashers...Oh ya, the new Family Heirloom Weavers table square too.. The new grid pattern....

Inspired from last weeks display chain, Baskets... Got this great old basket!! I had seen it at the antique shop in Genoa a while back, lucky for me it was still there!

Need to fill it up a bit, but I will leave it on the riser on the table....


Then lastly a few little goodies! I am really lovin child size prims! Of course, the homestead is filling up, so smalls are a good thing! Love the little child's bread board, found that yesterday for $6.00!!! The little wooden toy phone with the 100 year anniversary for western electric, too cute!!! So I have been a little bad, must go craft now! I am out of money!!! Off to peek at everyone else's goodies! OLM

YIKES! Where did the time go....????

YEAH! Happy Spring. I always have a extra special reminder of Spring, Our son Alex is 23 today! Now I am still a young 22, haven't aged a day, so how can I possible have a 23 year old son??? Time flys in a blink of a eye! Here he is a few weeks back, all dressed and ready for his internship at the Police Department! Happy Birthday Alex!!! We are so proud!!! I worked last Thursday and Friday over at the shop. I meant to take some pictures to share, but I left the camera on the table. Hard to take pictures that way...OOPS....

I wanted to share with everyone this great surprise box I received from Angie over at www.lilraggedyangie.blogspot.com ! She wanted to send me a "old goat" after reading about my bags trip... I was a little afraid...LOL... Then there was so many other wonderful goodies and such a great card! Thanks so much!!!!
Now the minute Knuckles saw the goat, he thought it was for him. He has even stolen it once! LOL.... I think he can become the new "bag" mascot! I might have to let knuckles play with him a bit to make him a little "worn" LOL.... See the Bags had a mascot, this REALLY ugly old, stuffed dog we named "Spike"...but spike has gone missing.... So what better to guard the bags, but a old goat?????

YUMMO! so chocolate, fun prim eggs, a little raggedy Ann pillow, towel, basket, plate & more... I was spoiled!!!! How lucky was I???? Thanks again Angie! Your thoughtfulness, WOW!!!


Well, speaking of Knuckles, he has gone MIA, AGAIN!!!..... Next door, won't come home.... I am over there visiting for a bit... Knuckles see us all there, along with the HOT DOG MAN JEFF... So of course he wants over, we bring him over, now he won't come home! No loyalty here! He seems to have forgotten which side his bread is buttered on.. Tossed us under the bus for a few losey hot dogs!?!?!!? As I type this he's still there.....maybe he feels bad for HOT DOG man??? he fell this weekend and broke his arm... WELL..... that is one spoiled dog!
Then lastly, off today exploring... MAYBE being a little bad.....Went to see one of the prim gal pals at the Primitive Chick in Dekalb.... Maybe acquired a few goodies... Will share tomorrow for the display....I am already out on the scavenger hunt...DARN!!!
So here is just a couple of pictures of the shop... Lots of eye candy... so many goodies so little space......





Off to try and collect Knuckles, AGAIN! Have a great night! OLM

Though If you see something you can't live without, email me.
Opened another box of the Morning Glory.... My supply is getting down there.... My oldest gets excited everytime I get another box, since I have been keeping them in his room. We don't have a basement, and I had to order 20 at once to get the price break, UGH! When I did this, he was away at school.....WELL...now he's home doing is internship, OOPS! Sorry Alex, mommy loves you!!!

Few kitties out drying in the sun for a change! These go to the Antique shop in Genoa. I designed these just for that shop.'The laughing Cat"....
