Some things to share...A few fellow Bloggers site's...A few Creations....

Hi y'all ! I sure hope this post finds you in GREAT spirits !
Wow how does time pass by soooo quickly ?!? Seems like just a few days ago I posted last...not weeks ago ! I have sooo many things I wanna share with y'all. First and foremost I want to say that my Daddy is still doing well. And that is thanks to the many prayers from loving people like y'all.
My camera was broken but I have a new one finally so I can take some pics to share with ya's.....(which I have done lol)

I have to share this wonderful Prim store we stumbled on in Mitchell, Indiana called This And That Antiques. The owner Vicki is just one of the sweetest gals I have ever met ! She and her husband treated us all as if we were old friends instead of just another customer walkin' thru the door. And it just soooo happens that Vicki also has a blog and a picture trail as well.
Here is Vicki's blog address....Out My Window stop by and say hello to her. Here are a few pics I asked her if I could share with y'all......

Vicki has some of THE MOST Primtastic treasures in her store...
As soon as you step thru the doors there is eye candy galore !

Just look at the goodies on the porch !

A few inside pictures.....

Just look at that fantastic cupboard !
And the mercantile sign and the and the lol
Seriously primtastic offerings to be had at
this Primtastic shop ! From Prim magazines
to cupboards to a real feather for
your ink well to dough bowls. A Prim
Lovers dream.... Vicki thank you sooo
much for the use of the pics ! And for
your warm heart and friendship you have
extended to me ! If any of you are ever in the
area be sure and make This N That Antiques
a stop on your list ! You'll NOT be disapointed.
You can also check out Vicki on
picture trail at
Where you can see some of the wonderful
things she carries in her store.....

I recently wrote a tutorial complete with
pictures for Prim Pals forum on how
to make these
grubby items below....

I used a small reed difuser bottle to make this
look like an ink well to sit atop
my slanted laptop desk...

And yepp the feather came from Vicki's Store
Here it is on my desk .....

I also made this can.....

I recieved the label along with
many more from a fellow Bloggin' Pal
Natalie of Blue Cupboard Primitives...

you sent to me !

I am so happy to read the good report on your dad. Praise the Lord for what he has done and for what he is still able to do.
Sounds like you had a wonderful time at the antique shop. Don't you just love looking around at all the goodies! Your labels are great. I think just about everything in my kitchen has a label on it somewhere or another.
Enjoy your week.

Well it's about time you came back home. Lol! I know you've been busy with the Prim Pals blog. It's looking wonderful.. you all are doing a great job with it. I just wish I had more time to check everything out. I'm reminded why I don't join forums.. I don't have time!!

What a wonderful store! I need one of those ink wells and cool looking feather for my old school desk. That would look so neat. Now I'm gonna have to go look that up on the forum and add it to my mile-long project list. Thanks girl! =] Love the labels too, they are prim wonderful!
