Updating on The Primitive Gathering

Well..the first of March is almost here...(can't believe it)..and I DID hear birds singing right outside my window it's not to far away!!

After being down for almost 2 weeks sick....I had a lot of catching up to do. Between boxing up orders I was working on some new dolls for the March 1st update on 'The Primitive Gathering'. This guy is Tom...all ragstuffed and hand sewn. A real sweetheart I must say....if you'd like to adopt him,or any of the other dolls.. check out 'The Primitive gathering' March 1st.

And it finally happened.....hubby said no more shoppin' till I get rid of some of my stuff. (meanie) So...we are having a sale on most of the antiques. Good prices. So hopefully we can get some more stuff on the site. So shop, shop, shop!!

And..we've had quite a few gals ask if we could make it easier to find out the shipping prices on our furniture...and we did! THERE ISN'T ANY!! Yup...we decided to just make it as simple as can be for you and have FREE SHIPPING on ALL of our furniture and most of our smalls! Isn't that great! And trust me girls, when I say that our furniture is wonderful!! I've got a few pictures from a couple customers that ordered...and sent along happy's just a matter of getting them on the site.AAuugh! The pretty piece below is probably one of my favorites!

Hope your all well....I'll try not to sneeze on you....and getting in the Spring mood! Keep peeking in on the site. We are adding things every couple of days!
Take care and stay well!

It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature!

I'm so in love with Spring...the sights...the sounds...the smells. And being the middle of February I KNOW that Spring isn't here yet..but how can I not get Spring fever with weather in the *50's! Even though it's melting the snow faster then the streams and creeks can keep up's still so wonderful to be outside hanging up clothes.

My husband is afraid that Winter is over(remember they have a snow machine in the basement STILL)..but I assured him that I hardly think that Winter will give up so easily. As a matter of fact, we had snow in the middle of May last year.

So with fingers crossed that it won't be another Spring like last year where the flooding took so many homes, I hang my clothes out on the line for the first time today...and breath deeply the fresh warm smells of February.

I am in the process of adding the primitives we have for you. We babysat our grandson this weekend which left me exahuasted....but very happy. So I will get those goods added for you tomorrow..and I even have some new handmades for you to view as well.

Please do stop by tomorrow for a peek and a chat. It's always so very nice to hear from you.

I've snapped just a few pictures of my livingroom. Nothing fancy...but it's were our heart is.

I'm here........really I am! never fails. No matter how much sanitizer I keep in my purse, or how many times I wash my hands.....I get that darn flu bug ..every year!! I thought I had it made...usually it hits me at Christmas time...but..oh no...silly me for thinking I was safe! This time it got me.. WHAMOO...WORSE then usual. Down a whole week this time. Spring ever coming?? I have noticed that the days are getting a bit longer...and that my girls are laying a few more I think it is creeping closer.

Ok..story time. Car wash...automatic...Sitting in there jammin' to the radio with son as he pipes up and says' Mom..wouldn't it be funny if the water didn't come out'. Laughing..I said 'ya it sure would'. At this time the thingie has already gone around with the prewash and is making it's way back from the 2nd time with the soap. It makes it's way to the front...and just as the water SHOULD be shooting out the only thing it's spiting is AIR!!!!!! YA! So there I am...full of prewash, soap...and NO WATER!! But that's not even the best part......NOW comes the WAX!! And still no water. So here I am..prewash, soap AND wax......and then THE DRYER COMES ON!!! OMG.....The heat just baked all that stuff to my car.....Son is laughing hysterically..and I'm swearing like a sailor! Ofcourse I couldn't go anywhere....and God help the poor old man that was using the stall next to me. He must have thought I had turrets!!!

So... after the little green light came on happily blinking for me to 'PULL AHEAD', I exited...only to drive back around wash it by hand.

This little adventure cost me $35.00.and I did leave the caretaker a nasty note expecting to be repaid for atleast the automatic wash! Haven't heard from him yet. Go figure.

So..on to business. As you may have noticed we've added tons of new items to the store. I'm SO excited about it all...and we do have more on the way! I've searched for a very long time for some really outstanding artists...and with my quest finished...I'm come up with the most talented folks in their fields.

Everything we now have is ALL made right here in the USA!! No oversea items!! NO machine made items!! Everything we offer is being all handmade by this group of very talented artists. Some of them have won awards for their talents....and all just amaze me with their kindness and goods.

I hope you enjoy the way we have the website set up now. All antiques are in the 'Antique' area....sometimes it was a bit confusing I know. You can now find just about everything for your Home & Heart in one store.

I will still be making my handmades....are you's what keeps me sane! And ofcourse we'll have bunches of more primitive antiques for you as well. I hope you like the look of the store...and the ability to shop in one area....I know it makes me feel good to be able to offer these new items to you.

So, if you have any questions about the new stuff....or just want to chat, just step outside and holler. I'll hear ya!!

Till next time....get your flu shot!!
