Got the Itch and Finished Creations!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
It's a Beautiful sunny Sunday here in WI ~ But it is quite chilly out there!!!
But any who ~  I have the winter time itch ~ This is the time of year when I start to yearn to go to flea markets and can't wait for them to start up again.  So off to the Antique store I go.
My girlfriend Diane and I went for a ride in the country and the roads took us to a small town called Pardeeville where we found a cute Antique store  called Pardeeville Wisconsin Antiques Mall.
(Yep I forgot my camera)  This place was one of the nicest antique stores that I have been in ~ in a long time.  The booths were set up so nice, some looked like little store fronts complete with little porches and some booths made you feel like you were stepping inside little log cabins.  The store owners were so sweet and they wrapped all of our treasures with such care.

 Here's some of the treasures I found!
Some treenware bowls, bobbins, springs, buttons, & wooden spools.

cutter quilt heart, cookie cutter, vintage gloves, and some old bottles!

I'm always on the look out for old and unusual glass jars and bottles.
Here's a close up of the two I got.
dog shaped candy dispenser jar with the candy still in it!
a baby bottle for twins ~ how unique is that???

I've been busy working on some Valentine creations and such to fill my booth back up after the holidays.  Here's what I've been up to.

Prairie doll bowl fillers

pattern by: Chestnut Junction

Valentine cupboard hangers

Redwork L is for Love heart
pattern by: Country Rustic Primitives

Basket of scrap hearts.

Some shelf sitter signs.

Now my booth is starting to fill back up.

So tell me ~  What have you been working on???
I still have a few more Valentine creations to make and then I need to start working on some Easter items.

Well that's about it for today ~ I just wanted to pop in and say Hi and let you know I'm still alive.
I'm suppose to be working on my taxes ~ YUK
So I better get to it ~ not one of my favorite things to do!

Until Next Time
Stay Warm My Friend!
Prim Blessings

Hopefully soon I'll make a post and explain.


Your booth looks great. I would love to shop there! And that antique mall sounds like Heaven. Have a great week!

Hi Robin... Your booth looks amazing, best of luck selling all those newly made Valentine's Prims. Love those stitchery pin keeps!

Great finds on your outing, never seen a bottle for twins. I too get the treasure seeking itch this time of year, been thinking of markets and garage sales for a couple weeks now. Can't wait for spring... ♥Traci

Hi Robin~

That antique mall is one of my favorites!! I discovered it about 6 months ago & love how the booths are set up. My favorite the booth on the main floor in the back (the one that looks like the inside of a cabin). Love your new Valentine goodies!!

Have a wonderful day~Becky

Hi Robin...do you ever not create...lol
Everything is beautiful.
I will have to go to Pardeeville... I don't think it's too far a drive for me...all us WI girls should meet there sometime - although it would probably be a 'fight fest' with all of us clamoring for the same things...lol
You purchased some great items.
What a wonderful space you have - now i'm sure I can find it someplace but where is it located?


Angie Berry said...

Hmmm.... I see that you and I could never shop together because all the things that I see pictured here, are things that I look for and love to buy. We would be fighting over everything, lol!

Your handmades are lovely and your booth is looking wonderful! I would love to shop in it!!

Have a wonderful week~

Vera Kauffman said...

Love your booth! Your stuff is always so nice. I will have to get out there one of these days... I also can't wait to go to the flea markets. This weather really makes it hard to wait... 60 today, I can't believe it. Is it really Jan 31st.. :D

Cave Creek Primitives said...

That was a warm and fuzzy post :-). I feel better already. Love your booth, and the haul from the antique shop too! I love flea markets too and though it seems like spring out there, sadly our outdoor markets are still closed.

Hello....hello....it's me....I feel awkward and clumsy barging in here like this after being MIA for so very long....way, way. too long since I visited one of my very best besties....forgive me??? Love your new Valentine creations - your stitcheries are amazing and make me want to even quit trying. But my favorite this post 'round I think have to be those darling little prairie doll bowl fillers. Too, too, sweet. And Pardeeville you say??? Hmmmm...I think that's only a few hours from here...might make for a good road trip this summer. Where, exactly, do you have your booth??? I would so love to shop THERE some day!!! Hope all is well in your world....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
