Past, Present and Future

As for the present, Judy Hill's Open House is this coming Thursday, December 3, from 10 - 5. If you need directions, per Judy, call now, as in presently. Thursday morning will be insane. Here is her website with her blog. Check it out. If you didn't get to go last year, well, here are the pictures I took at the 2008 Christmas show. Judy and her hubby, Bill, are A-ma-ZING!

In regard to the past, last weekend, we enjoyed a wonderful Open House at Winnie & Tulula's. Thank you everyone who came out! It was a pleasure sharing my egg nog with some of you!

I finally got all of my pictures up. Most of them were taken Saturday, after the dust had settled. If it's not labelled, I believe it's mine. I think I got everyone else's identified. I hope! Here's a little taste:

Did you see my vintage taxidermy forms? I think these are to die for! Imagine one with a paper mache dress pattern, or atlas pages, or colored comic strips, or even newspaper. Oh, the possibilities! I like them as is, myself.

It's like having a dead animal on your wall and the killing wasn't necessary. Well, kinda!

Now, regarding the future. In the very near future, this Saturday, as a matter of fact, Primitiques will enjoy a Christmas Open House from 10am-3pm. Today, my sister came up to the store to help with preparations. I am getting excited!!!

  10. Should we play hooky on Thursday? I'm kidding, I know neither of use can afford the time off. But I sure enjoyed Judy Hill's summer home show! And it is a photographer's dreamland and very, very good for my Flickr stats! lol

    Do you remember the chippy white cabinet and dresser? And the dresser had ribbon drawer pulls? My photo of that is number 3 in "interesting rating" out of all my Flickr photos with 99 views, 6 times favorited, 4 group invites and a gallery entry!

  11. David, I don't know if they are favoriting you or Judy. Both, I imagine. You are both brilliant!

    Lee, you'd love it. Hope you feel better soon.

    Judy, you are very welcome. I hope it's a great show for you. Great seeing you Friday night!

    You Six Girls need to just bring it on to Poetry. And we'll create some new memories. K?
