Goodies From Trade Show!

Good Saturday Afternoon Friends!

What a beautiful Saturday we are having! It is sunny and just about 60 degrees out, but unfortunately I am stuck in the house cleaning.

It has been a week since my last update, and what a busy week it has been. Ed and I had a absolutely wonderful time at The Offerings Cash & Carry Show, and I have some pics to share with you all of some of the things we purchased for both ourselves and the website. I got 4 pieces from Doug of Olde Tyme Sales. He does beautiful work and has some really unique pieces. Here are 2 of the pieces in the dining room along with a taller cupboard we purchased from "The Settlement Trading Co.

Love this hanging cupboard with the rough sewn edge, and lumpy finish on the interior section.

The Pie Safe is my absolute favorite piece if that is even possible! ;-)  How do you even pick a favorite? I love all my pieces obviously, or I wouldn't buy them! lol!

The two  pieces together, and I didn't buy them with the intentions of displaying them together, but when something comes together and works... well, why mess with perfection!

This taller cupboard is from "The Olde Settlement Co". I did buy two. This one and another done in a brown color.

Another hanging cupboard from the same company.

This is another item from Doug at Olde Tyme Sales! Isn't it just wonderful?! Anna has fallen in love with this rocker, and I had no room for it, so I have actually moved my desk from the kitchen and made room for this in there. :-)

Last two pictures are a couple wood candle sconces I grabbed. Love them booth!

After we did our stint at the show we headed about 30 minutes north of Columbus and stopped at Delaware, OH so I could see "The Seraph" with my very own eyes. I have been drooling over this place for a couple years on the web, and to see it all in person was just so...yummy!!! I bought a throw rug and a swag curtain for my dining room window at The Seraph! I have taken so many pics, but with the light coming in the window I just can't get a good one. We plan on adding bottom shutters to this winow so I just wanted a simple swag for the top and this fit the bill perfectly!

After leaving there we headed back toward home, and swung by and stopped at "North Shore Primitives"...Wow!!! This place was great! So much to see and drool over. I did buy myself a little treasure! I feel in love with this guy.

We got home late Saturday night, and we then spent the next 3 days filling orders and trying to get the house ready for out of town guest. My cousin and her husband from NY came for a little visit. We had a wonderful time with them both, and only wish their visit could have been longer. We took them to Glendale for a little Prim/Antique shopping and I got this little darling!

Is she too stinking cute or what?!

They left yesterday morning, and my sister Lisa and Mom are due to arrive later this evening from Maine & NY, so I have been busy cleaning again. Mom and Sis will be here a week, and then we are following them back up to Maine and will stay there for about a week, so the next couple of weeks are going to be crazy, and I probably will find little time for blogging. Hopefully after we get back from Maine we can get the last bit of the kitchen finished and done, which I of course will be sharing with my blog friends!

One quick last picture is a x-stitch I finished up a couple weeks ago and forgot to post. This was done using a wonderful pattern from Stacy Nash! It is suppose to have a longer loop on it to hang around your neck to hold scissors, but I wanted it to hang on a cupboard so I shortened it up.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a blessed next week. Thanks for dropping by!
