A few of my friends from Saturdays show over at Holly Hills Primitives…oh my goodness what a show it was.
This was Dawn’s first attempt at this type of show and it went over big time.
And I was in awe at the number of bloggers that showed up there to shop and also to sell. If only I had been up to it I would have done it this year as well…but you all know that story and I won’t go in to it anymore.
The weather was just perfect up to noon anyway when it down poured but people still arrived and it went on until closing.
We were to stay for the evening get together but I could not take much more waling or standing so we headed home.
But…I did get to meet everyone there and hope someday to see them again.
We stopped over there on Friday while everyone was setting up and got to meet a few gals.
I am leaving the pictures small because there are several…

My purchases from Ann…
A basket with legs
(I know there’s a name for it but can’t remember)
In the basket is a Black Walnut garland that I forgot to take out to get a picture of.
Lauren from Rugs and Pugs

Not sure what was said but Lauren liked it!
Sweet Bobbie from The Evening Stitcher

Doug enjoyed their booth because her husband Dave and him seemed to click
Friday while we were over watching all the vendors set up and shop in Dawns shop we stopped at Bobbies booth and I saw this Halloween pillow and wanted it badly…I even thought about it that night and hoped that it would not have been sold to someone early on…but I got it! That’s a happy face!!!
And an antique Gold bowl
I met Pam from Basket N Prims
( http://basketsnprims.blogspot.com/ )
And Lori from Homespun Prims
( http://homespunprims.blogspot.com/ )
We met Pam also to give her the Bittersweet plant she had me bring to her
Some very special ladies I met while in line for the show…actually I met the lady in the Gold top on Friday while snooping at Dawns early! She’s Susan from Canada and she knew who I was right away and said ‘Hi Karen’ – goodness you can’t go ANYWHERE that someone doesn’t know you – anyway, Susan was there with her daughter and a friend and we enjoyed chatting – they were also at the same hotel as us and we saw them at breakfast and then what do you know…they were right there next to us in line.
Now the lady on the other side of me is Janet from Canada ( http://oldecrowprimitives-janet.blogspot.com/ ). I didn’t know Janet either and she was standing in front of me in line and said ‘Hi Karen’….so strange to be known and not know them.
I do believe that was all the people I met, if I met someone and forgot to mention it, I’m sorry – as you can see it was several to keep track of – how wonderful to meet all these sweet gals.
Just a few more purchases at the show – but I don’t know who the vendors are personally.
Two lovely yards of wool from The Wool Room
From The Parsons Daughter

I got this Wool pin – It’s actually a brighter Green than it is showing
And these button ‘magnets’
may use these for Christmas stocking stuffers or add in gifts
And last..yesterday Dan DiPaolo
had his monthly shop open at the farm and I never miss that!
I just love that guy…he’s so happy and personable all the time and always shares we us his newest ideas and creations.
He had these out at the shop and I snagged one.
It’s from his new retro line
( Silverstri by Demdaco )
It’s all wood and I love how the lines in the wood show through.
My goodness I almost forgot…on the way to the show we stopped at a blog friends house to pick up the JB Settle we bought from her…some of you may know she was selling all of her Colonial furniture – changing over to comfy casual now.
This is at her house
Here’s Linda’s blog ( http://primpyourpad3.blogspot.com/ )
Although she goes by ‘Earthy Comfy Casual’ in the header, but the blog link says ‘Primitive Pond Homestead’…so however you get to her, that’s who it is.
…And after getting it in our house (yes, I helped carry it in!)
I do not know how this room will be arranged but I am putting the Oriental rug down again now that the settle is in there. The fabric is the Wedding Ring design in Black with Mustard
So there you have it.
I think we did pretty good for a days outing don’t you???
Hope you get on over to the blogs I listed here.
Next year I hope to meet many more of you.
