Gathered Treasures ~ Mansfield, Ohio

I’m happy to say that we made it to the Gathered Treasures show last Saturday! We didn’t arrive until 2pm but we did make it!
The moment I walked in the door I knew I was done for! Everything was prim perfect from wall to wall! So pretty!
I didn’t take pictures because time was short and I didn’t want to waste what little time we had taking photos. If you want to see what this show is all about head on over to http://blackcatprimitivesgatheredtreasures.blogspot.com/ . There is a slide show from last year under the header and lots of links to this years vendors on the left side.

So first lets look at my purchases and then we will look at Jamie's. I think a lot of you must think I buy more than I do because whenever I show what my shopping buddy bought it always seems to be referred to as mine. LOL. It’s not. i.e.…. yesterdays pictures were mostly all Jamie's purchases, not mine. I do like to keep the economy going but I don’t buy it all!
So here are MY purchases. :)
It seemed to be all about the one thing I can not do for me Saturday.
Stitching, Sewing and what not.
I have SEVERE tendonitis in my right arm, from the first knuckles to my shoulder,  making it painful to try to hand sew anything. Which really bums me out because I used to LOVE to crochet and that has been taken from me. I bought a sewing machine a few year but I haven’t even opened it because I really have no interest in it. I want to hand stitch things and I can not./. :(
I bought this sampler. Isn’t it so pretty!
I thought it was hand stitched when I fell in love with it, only to find out it was made on a sewing machine.
Oh well. I like it anyway. :)
I got this cute little bees keep to go with my collection.
Another hand stitched item. How cute is this?
Look how little! 
I also fell in love with this little guy. Obviously we like the mice at Primcats house. ;)
Is this not the cutest thing you have ever seen!?!

Got a bag of cranberry smell good that I promptly poured into a bowl in the kitchen! Smells so good in there!
So here is where a few things ended up…
Mousie in the kitchen! Millie and tuck are not doing their jobs!
My pin keep landed in my “spot” in the living room. This is where I sit when ever I’m sitting and since she makes me smile so I figured she belonged there. Now every time I look at her I smile!
My last purchase was this… and it was the deal of the day! I paid $40.00 for this great crock bench which landed in the bedroom, my least decorated room of the house. Sorry the pic is so bad… but it gives you an idea.
Last thing of mine that I FINALLY remembered to take a pic of was this bunny and carrot I got 2 Saturdays ago! I keep talking about him but kept forgetting to take a pic.
Here he is in the strainer. Hippity hoppity!
If you look down below him you will see the gathering basket I bought a few weeks ago. I filled it with dried orange slices and a primcat. :)

I’m going to need a bigger Zoo shelf! Where oh where am I going to put all these bunnies when Spring is over? LOL!
Ok… now… Jamie’s purchases!
These are not mine! These are hers! :D
A great little box. A candle to put in it. And some smell goods to put around it! Yum!
An adorable little candle box.

And this little garden mouse! Love him!

Until next time…
