*~Pretty Things~* Red White & Blue


Sorry for the looong pause.  Summer is here and I’ve been dreaming away new ideas for creating and gardening.  I swear the flowers are singing to me early in the morning ”come out come out wherever you are…”  Those Wizard of Oz song's are always stuck in my head..."if I only had a brain"  :)

We are getting ready for Independence Day.  Our home is situated where we have a lovely view of the fireworks from the park.  This year will be our 17th Fourth of July picnic.  Getting geared up for it,here are a few photos to gather up some energy for decorating …what do you think?

Thank you for making my days with your visits and kind comments!

A big hug ~

Lots of New Primitives at Rabbit Hill

Olde and Worn Looking Teddy

Summers almost here hurray!  And that means its flea market season hurray again!  I've been searching the last month for some great new antiques to offer.  It's been awhile since I've been able to find anything...it gets tougher every year.  Plus I have been sewing like crazy and have some new primitive folk art to offer.  If you have some time please stop by for a little look...  www.rabbithillprimitives.com

Old Strawberry Make-do from James Cramer Collection.

This is the last update until August.  New look and new prims are coming....

Thank you kindly for visiting.

Update on Primitive Gatherings

My offering for the Primitive Gathering for the month of June.  Sorry I only have one.  Once September rolls around there will be more. Click here for more info.

Primitive Seed Box and Prairie Doll Set...also comes with a packet of forget me not seeds from my garden

I'll be updating my website tomorrow evening.  If you'd like to stop by and take a look it will open with lots of new primitives at 8:00 p.m. eastern.  Thanks!

Well it's been a long day pickin' strawberries, my feet are going to fall off.  I'll tell you about it later this week.  Have a good night all!

"Learn to pause....or nothing worthwhile will catch up to you."

 As I sit here writing this blog I am watching a pair of crazy wrens build a nest on my front porch window box.  I wonder if I should let them or shoo them away for fear of the neighborhood cats.  Old lady kitty is to lazy now to got after them but I'm sure they will bring back some good memories for her.

Busy little things they are...not a great picture, they won't let me get to close.

Another busy week has come and gone.  We've had some bad weather, as has the rest of the country, with heavy rain, hail and even a few small tornadoes.  I hope that is all in the past...I'm tired of cleaning up and also being freaked out by the wind.

My sister and I had our birthdays last week.  I'm STILL 28 and she's STILL 24.  When we were kids we used to share our birthday party at our cabin.  Her's on the 1st of June and mine on the 5th.  That's always when summer started for me.  I love having our birthdays so close.  We still get together one way or another to celebrate....this year we went to see "Sex in the City 2" and bought some birthday shoes.  We needed them.  Our souls needed them.   

Adult ADD kicking in now but does anyone remember the faze in the 70's were your mom would dress you and your sister the same?  It didn't matter how old you were.  I was 10 and she was 6 and we would have the same dress on for Easter.  We were highly influenced by the Partridge Family and the Osmonds.  Maybe that's why we turned out like this.....

I REALLY LIKE this bath soap!

She's the "cool" one.

One last thing....

I'm having a huge update on the 15th.  The last one for a while.  I'll still be posting on Early Work Mercantile and Primitive Gatherings each month but my next update won't be until August.  This one will have lots of gardening and summery primitives and antiques....I actually have finally found a few antiques to post.  Hope you can visit me then.

Well until next time...thank you always for reading my nonsense.  I surely enjoy writing about it.
