A TRIP TO MELISSA'S AND THE GATHERED TREASURES SHOW
Yesterday, I went to my friend Melissa's home in Ohio..she's probably going to kill me...but I wanted to share pictures of her beautiful home. She has it decorated nicely so with tons of primitive pieces in every room. We then went to the Gathered Treasures show in Mansfield and course, brought lots or treasures back home with us. It was a wonderful show! We met up with Lauren (Rugs and Pugs) and Sheila (a fellow hooker from the Mansfield area..no blog..yet). We visited for a while with Julie Thorton and and another fellow hooker, Tammy. They had such a nice booth with lots of primitives and handmades. I think we went thru the show at least 4 times..it was so worth the trip! I'll post pictures of my things later this week...found some goodies! The above picture, is a reproduction dough box Melissa purchased from the "Hidden Den". They do an awesome job making their "new" things look old. I would love to go to their shop one day...
I love this antique penny rug she has displayed on her dining room table..lucky girl...she bought it at a garage sale and I won't even tell you how much she paid for it...it is even more beautiful in person.
Melissa's hooking room is just wonderful! So light and airy and she has everything so nicely dislayed and in easy reach and viewing for all of her hooking projects. I love her primitive cupboards and shelves...and her hooking chair looks so comfortable. Her husband, Michael, even bought her an HDTV for her room! How sweet is that?? He installed it on the wall so it doesn't interfer with any of her "primitive" decor.
