Some Great Prim Goodies

Have you ever needed something so bad and knew there was no where close by to purchase it?  Yes, shopping the interent is so easy to do, but I am very impatient and I wanted the item NOW.  So,,, after a call to the only shop that I thought might possibly have a set of brown cord white lights for a little tree I was wanting to decorate, I set out on a journey.

Yes, Mr. P., I know I am stuborn and hard headed, but I am WOMAN and I want what I want.  Now ladies tell me I am NOT the only one who thinks this way.  I hopped into my car and started my drive some 60 miles away to get my lights.  Chris at the shop was going to hold them for me. As I pulled from our driveway and in front of the house , I saw a package on the porch.  What did I do?  Yep, turned that car around and came back to see what the mail lady had left for me.  It was a package from my friend Kim in TN. You have seen many of her prim goodies throughout my home .  I was so excited with my goodies she was so sweet to share with me.  You are going to be jealous!! Kim needs a blog and selling blog so badly.

Don't you just love Santa's Tool Bag?  I have an idea how I am going to display this.  Can't wait to show you.  Kim, I simply love this idea.  It is going to look so cute in my special place.

Love these little ditty bags filled with sweet annie.  They have a special place hanging  on my German Twig 


Love this old book that she covered and stitched .  It will not have to wait until Spring to go on display.  I am going to display it on my potter's bench in the sunroom right away and then will  decorate with it inside this Spring.  Love it! She also included some great Christmas labels that I can't wait to create with. 

Didn't I get some neat goodies?  Thanks again Kim.... Okay leaving all the goodies and to get back on my way was hard to do. I wanted to stay home and play.  But once again I was on my way.  What really made this trip special was the fact I was going shopping ALONE.  That doesn't happen much since Holly is a professional shopper. (ha). But she had plans with her family.

I visited a total of 3 different towns and actually found a few great Christmas gifts.  Can't show you as She and Darbee Rae look at the blog.  Can you figure out who they are for? (smile) At the shop where Chris was holding the lights I got the lights, a scented candle bulb and a small feather tree.  Can't have too many of those little trees.  Got back in just before dark , happy to have my lights, and tickled over my other few finds.  Such a great day and hey, couldn't have been in better company, huh?

Today 's weather started out with rain, but the temps have fallen all day.  It is so cold this afternoon and the wind is blowing very hard.  Our weatherman is calling for snow flurries this evening and just a few minutes ago it was sleeting lightly.  Nothing is going to stick as the ground is too warm, but sleet and snow in Ga. especially in Nov, is so unreal.   Don't know if you can tell it or not but the windows in my sunroom was fogged over earlier today as it was so cold.

Well folks that is all for today.  Mr. P. is home from work, supper is done and dishes are clean.  He is building a fire in the fireplace and all is well in my little corner of the world.  Hope each and everyone of you can say the same.

I so enjoyed your visit and I cherish all of my loyal followers. Have a good night
Until we talk again....


  1. Wow Angela, Kim sent you some awesome goodies. Santa's tool bag is way too cute, can't wait to see where you display it.
    About the brown cord lights...have you ever shopped Factory Direct Craft online? I just placed an order on Friday Night and received it today, Monday. They have primitive items as well as thousands of craft items. factorydirectcraft.com is the link.

  3. Angela ... You are right! Kim needs a blog/selling blog! What wonderful goodies she sent you! You are one lucky nana! And of course I would drive 60 miles to get something I want! I've actually driven way farther than that! Last winter I made a 14-hour round trip to Michigan & back to get an old baker cabinet I saw on someone's Facebook page for sale. John even came with me although he says "never again" ... lol! Enjoy your wonderful new goodies! Blessings, Shirlee
