Boy...when you sell in an antique mall and do a primitive show twice a year....it really keeps you on your toes!!  It seems like I go out just about every weekend treasure hunting...the only problem is...when I find something I like...I have a hard time parting with it!

My husband & I love to go together....I'm lucky I have a guy who will take me just about everywhere...and when he gets bored....he brings his book and a pair of reading glasses and sits in the truck waiting patiently!

A couple of weekends ago, we went to a couple of shops not far from the house,  I didn't know  existed until some of my hooking buddies informed me...it was a fun day!!

First is a shabby, white cupboard I picked up for a song in Goodrich MI, Yellow Dog Antiques.  I fell in love with it, because my kitchen is mostly in farmhouse whites...it will be hard to part with..well...if I decide to part with it!

Next, is an old bird house I purchased this weekend....I think it is a "Martin Birdhouse"...another treasure I'll have a hard time parting with....

Three pieces I've had for a little while....still haven't made their way to the show or the mall....the checkerboard is a beautiful, original mustard and barn red (very faded) piece from the 1800's.  I bought it at the mall that I sell from, The Antique Mercantile in Jackson, MI.  The crock I purchased in Seville, OH from a lady that was closing her booth...she had been selling antiques for over 50 years and had a hard time keeping up, so sadly she closed her little booth.  The black trunk is a Kathy Graybill piece  that I purchased right before Christmas. I love Kathy's painted pieces!!!

Well..that's it for today....I'm making very little progress on my hooked rug...seems I've not been in the hooking mood lately....I guess I'm too busy shopping!  Have a great day!


  1. excellent pieces Bobbie...the bird house has me green with envy!

  2. Oh my I really think the white cupboard is right at home where she is and you should not make her sad by getting rid of her!
    Be blessed,
