Happy Birthday to me!


Hi Friends!

It was time for a trip down south to shop and since my birthday is this Friday… I treated myself to a few new pieces.

I picked out this wonderful box from Marples Tattered and Torn Primitive in Greenfield, Ohio.



I just LOVE it!


The hanging tin lamp also came from Marples.

The cat in the wreath came from Lecia at

The pretty little pin keep you see on the first shelf was  gift from Earlene at as were the cute little kitty and baby to the right of it.

The buckets on the bottom shelf came from Primitive blessings at


That cute little mouse in the cubby is from Carol at

The Bird Pinkeep came from

The stitchery came from the Simple Goods Show in Mansfield, Ohio.


And I promise you everything else is Goodwill finds. The blue cabinet, the wreath, the olde canning jars, the firkin, the candle jar, the light, the candle warmer, the Pfaltzgraff Folk Art Tart Burner… all years of goodwill scouting.

I love this piece. It’s going to be fun to work with through the seasons.

I picked up one other treasure at Marples… be back later with that!

Until next time…

Carmen and the Primcats
