A New Friend and New Goodies

Isn't it fun to meet the gals that you get to know online?  Back in December I got the chance to stop by Black Cat Primitives shop.  The owner Carolyn and I have gotten to know each other online and I was happy to meet her in person.  

(Carolyn on the left)
Her shop is full of the neatest prim items, many items are the best kind - handmade!

I picked up this cute little pillow/stump doll.

and this little pinkeep made from an old tin lunch pail.  Love them both!  

From  Willow B Primitives on Etsy a blackened beeswax bunny.  He smells SO good.
This next photo is a "new" bookcase that I brought home from my Mom's house when we were packing her up to move.  Sorry for the grainy photo - Our good camera was left at my sister's house in Wisconsin a couple weeks ago. 
I filled the shelf in a matter of 3 minutes - I think I have too much stuff! I pulled items that were in storage in different cupboards and now I can enjoy them out on display.   
The band boxes on the top shelf are from Marly at Samplers and Santas.  I won the one on left and purchased the one on the right.  Marly's work is wonderful - check her out!
Finally, I think everyone is healthy at our house.  The strep throat went on and infected 2/3 kids.  Luckily my husband and I escaped it.  


  1. I love the little stump doll. We had strep here too..but somehow it managed to only hit one kid! Probably because he's the one that kisses girls!!! Or a girl anyway, lol!! Glad your all feeing better. Katie

  2. Love the little stump doll. Glad that your family is feeling better.

  5. Hi Ann,
    How fun to meet Carolyn - I am familiar with her site.
    Your new bookcase is beautiful - quite prim looking.
    What a sweet doll/pillow. Hopefully someday if I get to Ohio again I will visit her shop.

  6. Hi Ann, I just found your blog, love the pillow with the doll and the lunch pail pinkeep, really love it, I love to collect unusual pinkeeps. Drop by for a visit sometime. Vicky

  7. Looks like you had a wonderful visit and what beautiful prims! ;)

  8. Hello, Ann: I'm popping over from your other blog. I really like the bookcase you brought home from your mom's. You filled it just right and I recognized the bandboxes before I read your description. I love Marly's sampler bandboxes.
    The blackened beeswax bunny must smell divine.

  9. How fun to meet a blog friend! Wonderful goodies, glad that everyone is back to being healthy.


  10. Good Morning, Ann,
    I love your little shelf and it's even more special that it came from your mom's.
    You did a great job displaying your little prim goodies.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend. ~Natalie

  11. Hi Ann! I was going through the list of followers on my primitive blog and see that you follow me so I thought I would come over here and meet you. =]

    You picked up some great prims at the shop! I've always wanted to meet a fellow online friend, how fun that must have been.

    Love the new bookcase and everything you have in it, wonderfully prim!

    Looking forward to following your blog, love it already! Have a delightful week~


Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm so happy to "meet" you through blog land. ~Ann
