Simple Ramblings From A Prim Cottage

Saturday, December 18, 2010

Christmas came early

Let me just say I feel really blessed this year..So many wonderful new friends with similiar interest, warm hearts and generous spirits.A big family,hubby blessed with plenty of work,warm house,good food and so many little things that I well keep in my hear rather than drag you on all day.LoL....I always get excited about christmas the week before.That magic creeps in slowly and I feel like a kid.Yes I like the presents but I think it's more the warmth and magic that excites me.Getting up christmas morn to open presents than watching TV while hubby makes breakfast,then off to gradma's farmhouse to be with all the family.Reading the christmas story to the little ones so they know the true spirit and if it snows sledding and hot cocoa..Oh what fun! So as I the title say Christmas came early.My dear hubby already gave me the two putz sheep which would have been enough.But look what he brought home last night! A wonderfully prim antique cupboard.Of course I had to cram it in somewhere even though I'll have to wait till after christmas to open the doors.Oh I just Love it!
The paint is a little more weathered and age crackled than it appears in the pics..And of course I had to decorate the top..Took tons of pics so you can see in the nooks and corners....Click on the pics to enlarge if you want....

I couldn't get a clear pic of the slave doll and wanted to show his features.He's supposed to look like a loved doll that was found in a field..He even has little pieces of straw sticking out of the worn spots...So here is a better pic.I got him from Missouri Dry Goods....

Another one of my favorites old wood trenchers....

Hope you enjoyed the pics.I might change it up after christmas when I can open the doors.I'm on my 9 days of baking I've been baking two treats a day.Today I think I'll do chocolate chip cookies and look for my buttercream cookie recipe they are a butter cookie with buttercream filling and melt in your mouth.Might go visit dad and take him some goodies and some of my handpoured candles.Hope you all are done with the rush and enjoying the spirit of the season.Warm Blessings!~Amy

That is a great piece! A little place to display but doors to hide the mess. Well, that's what it would do at my house anyway. :)

Oh Amy,
I love it! It's beautiful! I am sorry I haven't posted of late, my work has been VERY busy, and today is the first time I have been able to get on here. Thank you for the Santa! I love him, I have him on my cupboard downstairs. I haven't had much time to do anything, but I am looking foward to some much needed time off after this week is done!
I also would like to get some other things finished that I am working on for our swap!
I can see why you would be so thrilled with that cupboard, I LOVE the slave doll, but then again, I LOVE all your displays anyhow!
Have a good evening,
