Yesterday Dave and I went for a short drive to my friend Vicki's primitive shop! Remember Vicki was one of my beginning rug hooking students in my last class... she has started on her next hooking project and is hooking "The Flower Pot," my latest design. Her hooking is fabulous as is her sweet primitive shop which you are about to see!
Vicki calls her shop Simply
So come along now.... we have a LOT to see!
The entrance is a wonderful old covered porch with a tin ceiling! The ceilings in the shop are all old salvaged tin as well
So many primitive goodies on that porch! Took me awhile to even get in the door!
This neat primitive birdhouse really caught my eye!
One of the sweetest things in the shop of course is the proprietor herself! Vicki waits on a customer who was loading up the goodies! The laughter and good energy abound here! The walls radiate with home sweet home and primitive comfy coziness!
There is just the right blend of old and worn with hand made like this simple and sweet little pillow. I love the stitched saying.
and a very primitive angel with wonderful quilted wings!
Old galvanized tubs full of flowers and ....
Shelves full of homespuns, linens and old quilts!
Even Betsy Ross is perched on a shelf quietly stitching her flag!
There is a whole lot of great primitive flags and buntings to choose from! Dave bought me one of the outdoor buntings for the front deck for Mother's Day! I am a dog mother of two furry boys don't forget! :-)
There are Mothers who I'm sure can identify with the saying in this neat piece with the sweet old photo!
You can never leave a place without a peek into the washroom! Just a peek... there's more stuff to see outside!!
Like this WONDERFUL old painted wheelbarrow!! Want!!!
And these adorable little pigs who appeared to have just flown in and landed with their little blue and red wings! The gardens are whimsical and charming even though they are waiting the first little blooms with our late Spring here in northern WI!
This huge old slowly spinning metal wind turbine sits in the yard and makes your blood pressure come down a notch or two as you gaze upon it! Vicki's hubby owns a salvage yard and brings her the most awesome things she turns into yard art and goodies for her shop! Now that's a match made in heaven!
So if you live in or are traveling to this neck of the woods.... about 3 miles north of Trego on a hill on Highway 53 you'll find one of our state's little treasures of a shop named simply...
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
