More Auction Treasures!!!

Today, I went along with my husband to my first farm auction.  It was a small one, and it was also wet, muddy and cold.  Now that my feet are starting to warm up, it was worth it.  I was too nervous to bid on anything myself, so I told my husband what I wanted and how much I was willing to pay.  The one thing that caught my eye as soon as I walked up to the wagons, were three bundles of linen seed sacks!  Beautiful!  Once he won them, I was weak in the knees.  It really was exciting.   The weave and colours are gorgeous!  Here are a few of the ones I managed to get washed.

This is my favorite!

They get really wrinkled when they come out of the wash.  I've got a few projects in mind for these and hope to put them on the selling blog.

Swap Package Received Today!

I received my swap from Faye at Primitive Lace today!  This was from the "So you, So me" swap that Tammy from A Primitive Place put on.  I love everything so much Faye.  Thank You!!!  She sent me a beautiful doll (so her) and a set of pineapple stitched coasters, a star checked cloth and a yummy smelling little star (so me).
 The coasters are made by Karen of My Colonial Home.
This is my first prim doll.  I love her!
 While the mail man was at it, he also delivered one of the blog giveaways that I had won.  It was the beautiful earrings from Primitive Post.  They were donated by Dreamy Vintage.  They really are so pretty.
 Hope everyone is having a great day.  It's a little on the wet side were, but the temps are just right!

My husband surprised me with another antique!!

He brought home an antique from a farm auction today.  He knows I really want an old platform scale, with a wood platform.  His parents have a beautiful one that I drool over whenever I am there.  When he called me and told me he bought one, I was a little scared.  Around here, these things go for a pretty penny and I knew that was not in the budget at this time.  But this one was in the budget because he got it for $15.  It needs a little cleaning, painting, some fabricating, and some TLC.  I love it already though.  It's dated 1905.  He's getting pretty good at this.

I also have forgotten to mention something.  Heather and I have entered our selling blog in a contest here on the web.  It is being put on by the Sunburnt Cow Handmade Shop.  The rest of the contestants are very talented.  Wish us luck!!!!

My Winnings from The Prairie Patch

I received my package in the mail yesterday from Tracy's giveaway at The Prairie Patch!  I knew what this box was when I picked it up from the post office without even looking at the mailing address, just from the scent.  So many wonderful goodies and a few extras too!  Thanks so much Tracy!!  Now to find homes for everything.

The show was a success

A few weeks ago, Heather and I started a selling blog.  In celebration of this, we had an open house this evening.  We put a lot of work into it and are so happy with how it went.  Many friends and family came out to support us and I can not express how grateful we are that they did.  Thank you!!!  We sold out of a few items and have taken orders for more.  So overwhelming, in a good way!
