New Goods at The P

There is a framed photo of my first cat, Ellie Mae, in my entry way. I have owned that frame for at least 10 years. For whatever reason (I am old), I can't remember where I bought the frame. This would be a good place to insert said framed photo, but I didn't take a picture of it. Just believe me. It's there and I like it.

So, I recently decided to expand inventory at The Primitique.

I do love creating space with antiques.Which one?
And Robelyn's redneck chic line is sew much fun to carry!
The corner
The Swan Creek Candles we sell are amazing!

So, what was next? Thinking along the lines of what The P is about, I knew that whatever I brought in should be made in America. I like supporting artists. I like the idea of someone making something out of salvaged goods/recycling.

I looked at the framed Ellie Mae and wondered...

Upon removing the back covering of the frame, I saw it. The name of the company. Dare I hope that it was still up and running? A quick search revealed that indeed, Dryads Dancing was still in bidness. I read about Margaret, the owner and artist. I perused the website. I appreciated the "feel". I signed on and placed an order.

I love Dryads Dancing.

Did I mention that I love the magnet boards? Dryads Dancing is going to be a fun company to re-order from over and over again. Don't you think?

Oh. I bought more frames. Come to The P and check 'em out!

Happy Weekend!
