Hello Prim friends! I am so excited to share this post with you! This last Saturday Jamie and I set out on a shopping trip south of Columbus, Ohio… the trip was to go to North Shore Primitives and hit up whatever else we could find along the way.
Last year on our way to North Shore, I was driving along and as I came to a rail road underpass, just on the other side I spotted a sign… Primitive Blessings. I slammed on the brakes! LOL! No really. Ask Tammy and Jamie. SLAMMED them on an screeched into the lot! It’s a miracle I didn’t get rear-ended!
So we get out of the car and go in and this is your first look…
Stunning right? White and clean and gorgeous!
And I would love to tell you that I kept my big trap shut… but I didn’t. Out of my mouth comes disappointment. “Aw Man. It’s all white. Bummer.”
(You all know I intentionally don’t use white in my home. I went from Shabby Chic whites and pastels to Primitive. I am all whited out. )
And right then around the corner pops Pam… the lovely owner, and she heard me… oops. :/ I explained myself, my deferment to white, and we made friends. She is so nice and her store is amazing anyway. Nothing but good to say about it as you are about to see. And I came out of there that day with a great scale that I haven’t hung yet… but with my growing kitchen collection I need to get it hung soon! So that was late last fall.
Last weekend we walked in and everything is all decked out for spring and Easter and it’s just beautiful. And around the corner pops Pam and says, “Well I was wondering if you ladies were going to come back!” I said, “You remember us?” She said, “Of course! You said my store was to white!” And we had a great laugh! I just love kind, kindred spirits!
Pam is just the best. We had so much fun shopping with her and she just made it so much more fun with the personal service she gave us. I asked her if I could share her wonderful store on my blog and she said yes! So I just started snapping away! Now I really wish I would have gotten a picture with her! She really was so good to Jamie and I.
So… let me stop making you read and let you get to the pics! Here we go on a tour of
My spoils you ask?
Here are my wonderful treasures from Primitive blessings! And friends let me tell you… DEALS!!!!!!!! I got everything you see here for… are you ready for this? Less than $50 bucks!
YOU MUST GO VISIT PAM!
Here is my new favorite spring piece! It’s a huge bowl filled with crinkled paper, with an adorable bunny setting atop a cabbage leaf with moss, eggs and a carrot! I purchased the bunny to set atop the scale and Pam helped me pull together the rest of the gathering.
Then I got it home and set it in the bowl and thought it looked great there too! So it’s my new table scape for a while! Don’t you love!?
I did change out the carrot to one I got at NSP later in the day because I ended up putting the other carrot with a Honey and Me bunny I also picked up later and the day. I’ll show it to you later.
Next up… a prim little bunny in a jar with eggs and grass. So cute and a must have for my mason jar collection!
This fantastic scale! LOVE!!!!
This adorable little Prim bunny tuck! So cute!
He landed here.
I just HAD to have this. Mr. and Mrs. Primcats last name actually starts with E!! Cutest ever!
He landed on the pie safe!
And just to be even more of a sweetheart she threw in the yummiest spring smelling bag of potpourri goodies ever! right there on the scale! How sweet is that?
So there you have it! A table full of not white prims from a beautiful white store with the friendliest owner ever!!
Pam,if you’re reading this thank you for letting me share your wonderful prim shop with all my blogging friends! I am sure we will be back again sooner than you think! And hopefully some of my friends will be making their way to you too now that they know what they are missing!

After we left Primitive Blessings we hit up North Shore and a few other places. I’ll post about my North Shore goodies next!
Until next time…
Carmen and the Primcats
Thanks for stopping by my blog. My name is Carmen and this is my little corner of the internet. Since June 2009 my blog has focused on my love of primitive décor but I am currently delving into my other passion as well... cats and their wellbeing. Ergo… Primcats!
I am a Feline Wellness Advocate and Nutritional Consultant. I believe in and support ideals for a high quality of life for all our furry friends. I also participate in rescue, transport & feline education. I am a huge supporter of early Spay/Neuter and Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) programs. I hope by sharing my knowledge here that Feline Wellness ideology will spread far & wide so we can all contribute to make a positive difference in the lives of cats.
Please take a moment to leave me a comment or send me a message and say hello! I love to meet new friends.
