WISCONSIN SHOPS

 
MY FRIEND KATHY AND I WENT ON A THREE
DAY, TWO NIGHT TRIP INTO WISCONSIN THIS
PAST WEEKEND. WE VISITED PRIMITIVE GATHERINGS
QUILT SHOP AND COTTAGE HOUSE PRIMITIVES.
WE ALSO STOPPED AT AN ANTIQUE MALL THAT
HAS SOME NICE PRIMITIVE ANTIQUES. I WAS
DRAWN TO THIS TOTE THERE. THE PAINT COLOR
APPEALED TO ME AND WHEN I GOT IT HOME
I REALIZED IT WAS CLOSE TO THE COLOR OF
A LARGE SUGAR BUCKET/FIRKIN I ALREADY HAD.

 
THE TOTE HAS CANTED SIDES.

 
I FOUND THIS SLED THERE ALSO. IT SAID
FARM SLED ON THE TAG. I LOVE ANYTHING
WEATHERED FOR OUTSIDE. IT LOOKS TO BE
A LITTLE WORKING SLED FOR HAULING.
I JUST LOVE IT AND IT WILL BE FUN TO USE
OUTSIDE FOR HOLIDAY DECORATING.

 
IT HAS METAL ON THE RUNNERS.

 
AND THIS METAL HOOK WHICH MAKES ME
WONDER WHAT THEY HOOKED ONTO THE
SLED. MAYBE ANOTHER LITTLE SLED?

 
I FOUND THIS WONDERFUL TALL, NARROWER
BROWN CROCK JUG AT COTTAGE HOUSE PRIMITIVES.
CAROL HAS SOME GREAT PRIMITIVE ANTIQUES, REPRODUCTION
FURNITURE AND HOOKED RUG SUPPLIES. A REALLY FUN SHOP!

 
THESE GOURDS AND GOURD/NUT SWAY WERE
PURCHASED AT A SIMPLER TIME. JUDY HAS
SOME GREAT FALL ITEMS IN HER SHOP
ALONG WITH OTHER WONDERFUL PRIMITIVE
DECOR ITEMS. IT'S ALWAYS A TREAT TO VISIT
WITH JUDY. SHE'S THE BEST!!!

 
OVER DYED CROSS STITCH LINEN FROM
COUNTRY SAMPLER QUILT SHOP.

 
COTTON PRINTS, WEAVERS CLOTH AND
VALDANI PEARL COTTONS FROM
PRIMITIVE GATHERINGS QUILT SHOP.

 
WOOL FROM COTTAGE HOUSE PRIMITIVES,
HOLLY & IVY IN RIPON, WI AND PRIMITIVE
GATHERINGS.  I'M PLANNING ON DOING A
LARGE DEER RUG FOR OUR HOME SOON AND
THE BOTTOM WOOL WILL BE THE DEER. IT'S
AWESOME HOOKED. IT'S FROM CHP IN LODI.
THE DARKS WILL BE USED IN THE BACKGROUND
OF THE DEER RUG. THE ONE LOOKS BLUE BUT
IT'S NOT IN PERSON.

 
THIS WONDERFUL CHEST WITH DRAWERS
WAS WAITING FOR ME WHEN I RETURNED HOME.
I PURCHASED IT ON LINE AND IT ARRIVED WHILE
I WAS AWAY. I WANTED IT FOR BESIDE MY CHAIR
TO STORE MANY OF MY SEWING/STITCHING
SUPPLIES TO KEEP THEM HANDY AND NEAT.

 
IT FIT PERFECTLY ON TOP OF A LITTLE
MUSTARD BENCH I HAD BESIDE MY CHAIR.
 
 
THE DRAWERS AREN'T DEEP BUT PLENTY OF
ROOM FOR LOTS OF SUPPLIES.
 
THANK YOU FOR A GREAT TIME KATHY!  I LOVED
EVERY MINUTE OF OUR LITTLE TRIP TOGETHER.
 
I'M WORKING HARD ON MY UPDATE AND MAY HAVE
IT THE END OF NEXT WEEK IF THINGS GO WELL.
PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR MORE INFO.
 
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY.
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI
