My new obsession

Wow!!!! it has been forever since my last post. So much has been going on this summer, but now it is almost time for school to start back up and for things to get back to normal. I wanted to share some pictures of my new collections I have started. I have to admit, I think I am a bit obsessed with the old typewritters. In my kitchen I collect old scales buy my livingroom looked like it needed a collections so this is what I have been finding.
This is an old Corona, It was heading for the trash, Can you believe someone would throw this away, it even has the original case....
I found this Royal typewritter at a fun place called Pa's Trading Post in Oxford, ME... I love that place

my other Obsession is these baskets. I just love them hung on the wall, I need to fill them with some berries or something

This one has two large handles. Love Love Love this one...It is HUGE
So there you have it, my new collections.

We are bracing for Hurricaine Irene this weekend, I hope everyone stays safe.
Prim Blessings

hard lesson learned and sad news made for a low key Memorial day weekend

Hello Blog Friends,
I haven't been out here in what seems like forever. This would be where the Hard Lesson Learned comes in... My computers hard drive died and did I have a back up???? NO! I lost everything, Pictures, business stuff, all my documents, all my patterns that I have bought, YUP all of it. I am most sad about losing my photos. I never printed pictures, just kept them on my computer and now they are all gone.

The sad news is that my Dad's prostate cancer has come back. We thought the surgery had done the trick but he had blood work last week and the Dr said it has returned. I know he is lucky that it is prostate as that is very curable but it is still hard to go through. Cancer Sucks no matter how you look at it.

Now I have to tell you all that the one bright spot in my week last week was opening the mail box and seeing a package from Lil Raggedy Angie at . She sent me some very nice items including a lil raggedy doll, an americana rug, a candle and some yo yo flowers . This was her *RAGS* to me and it couldn't have come at a better time. I Thank her so much for putting a smile on my face when I really didn't have to much to smile about. so THANK YOU ANGIE

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial weekend, I want to extend a huge thank you to the men and women who serve this country
Blessings to all

2 packages in the mail today... also met a fellow blogger at the show Sunday

Hello Blog Friends, Today is very rainy in Maine but it got brighter when the mail lady came and brought me 2 packages. One from the Giveaway I won a while ago... this package came from over the Pond so it took longer but was worth the wait. Thank you Silvia

Look at the postage from Europe... I have never seen such a large beautiful stamp
Silvia sent this beautiful stitchery and and Egg and she also sent me a magazine of her neck of the woods to show me what it is like over there. I have always wanted to visit so for now I am going to just sit and read that magazine and dream. Thank you so much

Here is my package from Samantha, She hosted an Easter swap. This box smelled so good even before I opened it.

and look at all the goodies inside. Samantha made some fabric covered eggs, the most adorable bunny pillows, my favorite pattern of hers, Washday... and I wish you could smell the soy tarts, O Holy Moly my house smells good. My favorite is the Apple and Maple Bourbon, it smells so good. She was so sweet to include my daughter too, She sent the most adorable apron , Kennedy put it on so I could take her picture, then she ran upstairs to play at her kitchen with it.

Here is Kennedy in her Jelly Bean apron making a goofy face. Thank you so much Samantha.. everyone should go check out her blog, Samantha's accessories

So now to the weekend... the Hubs and I headed to Mass to attend the Market Square Cash and Carry show. We got there a little early to get in line and then a couple came up in line after us... We all just kind of stood there for a minute and then the lady said, excuse me, I just want to tell you "I love your Coach purse, Pink is my favorite color" and that started our conversation. Her name is Tricia and her husband is Ken. These are two of the nicest people we have met in a long time. So we chatted while waiting in line to get in to the show and Tricia and I soon realized that we both blog and followed many of the same blogs. Her blog is Hillcrest Home Prims, I was already a follower of hers. Isn't it amazing how small a world we live in. Both Paul and I are very thankful to have met Tricia and Ken and hope to keep in touch  with them.

Well I hope you all have a great week

Another package and a snow storm

So the only light in my day today was getting the mail and there was a wonderful package... I am so thankful for getting that package today because I've gotta tell you this snow storm has made for a grumpy day. I tried to shovel the 3 inches of snow on top of 4 inches of slush, that resulted in a very sore back. Had to call a plow guy to come clean up the driveway. Thank goodness for the plow guy. So here are some pictures of my new package

Gina from Cat Nap Inn Primitives sent me this package
and once again, the picture does not do any justice. This is an absolutely beautiful bag. Thank you Gina 
now on to the Nor'easter that hit Maine and the rest of New England today, I really thought the weather guys all got together and were pulling a big April fools joke on us with the weather forecast but to my surprise, they were serious. We got alot of snow that resulted in about 4 inches of slush with 3 or so inches of snow on top. Impossible to shovel, but great for a snowman. Kennedy had fun making a snowman in the middle of the turnaround.

see all this snow, yesterday this was grass...we really got alot of that white stuff. I sure hope mother nature starts to get in a better mood soon. Enough with winter and time for spring.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend

Here it is, the colors are beautiful and that bunny is so darn cute

Sunday here in Maine was Maple syrup Sunday so we got up early and headed to a small maple sugar house in Gorham, Maine

It was freezing outside, inside smelled like Heaven

getting ready to add more wood to the sap boiler

gotta keep that fire hot for the sap

samples of ice cream and fresh maple syrup

Here is the outside of the shack... it is a really cute building 
Then even though it was freezing, we decided to go to the beach to look at the ocean and get some Pier fries for lunch.. It is so worth the drive for those pier fries.. YUMMO!!!

Not sure what was up with my camera, these pictures are soooo bright, it was very sunny out but these are just so bright
Kennedy wrote her name in the sand, we were all freezing and she was ready to play in the water, crazy girl...

I hope you all had a great weekend as well.

I have been so busy painting as my husband is building... we have orders to fill and they seem to be never ending. I have paint tables set up all over the place trying to get it all done..I thought I would share some pictures of what got done so far this week.
Here is a coffee table, all black and distressed. I am a big fan of black distressed pieces.
here is another coffee table with a stained top, that is how the customer wanted it. I like it but prefer the all black look

lots and lots of peg racks

These are our primitive shelves, the will have black hooks put on the bar in the middle, they are a great seller

just a coupe more primitive shelves. This black one will have rusty hooks put on, it looks so nice, I will need to take a picture with the hooks on

Peg shelves in all sorts of colors

a couple small cupboards, we call these medicine cabinets, Paul needs to put the hinges on

and my flowers, these will be all over the outside of the shop, makes it feel like spring

some paper towel holders, need to distress and put the poll in to hold the roll of towels.

last but not least, some bowl racks...

so that was this weeks projects... can't wait to see what he builds for next week.
Have a great weekend, It is maple syrup Sunday here in Maine this weekend. We will be going to visit sugar shacks to try their maple syrup...YUMMO!!!
