Simple Ramblings From A Prim Cottage

Hippity Hop

 Well since Old Man Winter has forgotten to do his job this year I figured I might as well start spring early too...Now that it's decorated it'll probably cause a snow storm..LoL.. I keep expecting that winter is coming late but since we are almost to march I'm having doubts. Above the display on top of the old mercantile cabinet..The bunny below I purchased over the summer not real old but well made.The lady said she bought it from Germany with her..It has a putz sheep and wood bunny in his basket....
 My roses still living from Valentines...
 The shelf  I change for each season...The bunny in the blue coat I bought from Barefoot primitives to give as a gift but hubby loved him so I gave it to him....

Not much exciting this week. I was wrong about the real estate auction it's today.Hubby and I went and looked at it last night.  So many beautiful details but huge.All of the stained glass they remove would definitely come home to me.Part of the building has a attached tobacco store/lunch counter that has been closed for years but still has some of the old signs on the wall.The realtor said it will have to go fairly low though because it needs so much work.I'm still so hopeful he gets it so I can explore every nook while hubby works.It's 3 stories and a block deep.Stuff has been left behind over the years.Well girls today I need to pour some orders and a gift or two.Plus I need to finish sewing up my bunny make do.Then I want to read some magazines.There's a new one out called The olden days it has some good prims and is the premier issue.I'm on the fence as it has potential but needs a few tweaks.The early prim pictures are wonderful though.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Love your Easter/Spring displays.
I just Love bunnies!
We had some crazy weather here yesterday, cloudy, cold, rain, snow, rain/snow mix then snow. Today is breezy and the sun is shining. Go figure. Can't wait for Spring! Have a wonderful day, Amy!!


Katherine said...

Love your bunnies! I'm stitching on a few, but haven't pulled any of my own out yet. Fingers crossed that the building deal comes through for your hubby.
Have a great day!

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

So many sweet bunnies! I like how you have them all gathered together.
Goodness I hope you win the auction...just imagine what treasures are left behind.

Susan At Glen Oaks Primitives said...

Wow, look at that rabbit collection!
I like every single one of them.
The house decorating looks terrific.
Good luck with the auction.

Linda ★ Parker's Paradise said...

Loving the buns, but like you, I feel there is a snow storm left. I'm waiting a little longer.
OK, maybe it's laziness. There is so much spring cleaning that needs to be done!
Praying for this job. Hoping to see lots of great goodies coming home with you!!!!

HOLD OFF ON THE DANG BUNNIES ALREADY!! They're saying we're in for a doozy - 10-12" of snow on the weekend.....(Of course, it's only Wednesday, and that prediction could change a hundred times before then - but, they could up the inches too....) Seriously - love your bunnies....and Madalynne's sheep always makes me smile....Hoping the sale goes your hubby's boss's way....sounds like a project with tons of potential.....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I am obsessed with bunnies! Love all of yours. Your stuff is always so cute!

Karen~The Barely There Primitive Bear said...

You know what they say about March, if it comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb and also the other way around! We haven't had much cold this winter, either. It is supposed to be 70 degrees today and 76 tomorrow and cool back to the 50's. Ya never know what to wear!..lol...At least I don't need a snowsuit! You always have such cute decor.

Love your bunnies and how you have them displayed!! I've been thinking about getting mine out. It really felt like Spring today...it is in the low 50's here, but I keep wondering if we are going to get a big snow storm before Spring really get here.

Love all of your bunnies, I think spring is here, we had only 3 freezing nights this year. Almost time to plant some flowers. It sound like you will have so much fun going thru that old house, keeping my fingers crossed for you. Have a great week! Cyndy

You have a lot of neat springy decor! I love the bunnies! I can't believe your Valentine roses are still so nice!

alltheseboys said...

We haven't had winter either...yet..I am quite sure..the first weekend in March we will have a major snowstorm. Seeing as that's when I should be moving, lol!!! Katie

Theresa said...

I hope your Hubby gets the job...it will be so amazing to walk through the old building...plus to see all the goodies it's got hidden deep with in. :0) I also have my bunnies out for spring...I only have a several...so it didn't take me long LOL.

Prims By The Water said...

So am I to blame you for this snowstorm that is headed our way..suppose to get 10 inches in our neck of the woods here in Michigan. :0) Your bunnies are adorable. I've been debating myself whether or not to get my spring stuff out...guess I will wait a bit now. Take care, Janic

Danice said...

I love the bunnies, Amy, especially the Germany one. They are all so cute. 'Seems Winter forgot the South this year also, as we are under thunderstorm watches and warnings. Very unusual for Alabama in February.

michelle said...

Love your spring goodies displayed!we had not much of a winter either and now the hubs is ready to start some seeds!I learned my lesson last year from sarting them too soon,so no way yet,lol.Have a great week sweetie!Big hugs michelle

Angie Berry said...

I'm with you girl. I am packing up my snowmen which is very early for me. My daffodils are about to bloom out already, goodness!! You have some really cute bunnies!

Wow, that abandoned building sounds like a picker's paradise! You would be having too much fun in there alone, too bad I'm not close so I could keep you company, LOL! Praying your hubby gets it for the work, sounds like it would keep him busy for quite some time.

Have a terrific week~

Robin at The Primitive Hutch said...

Fingers crossed that your hubby gets the job.
Wishing for spring!

Hi Amy,
Love all your bunnies!! We didn't have much of a winter either. We were talking the other day though that the few times we have had snow was in March!! Texas.....always has to be different.:-)

Deppen homestead 1862 said...

hi, Amy ~ I have the spring fever also~ mild winter, but I have the bug for daffys, bunnies, and all the warmth of a spring breeze~
beautiful displays~

Kendra said...

So Amy, did he get the house?!
Lovin' the spring decor, I have been working on mine also...then last night we got several inches of snow (so much that the boys have a snow day today)! Jinx
Amy, what is the stitchery in the back ground of one of your pics, I can read the "and these things do please me..." part but what is the rest?
I like the new mag. but I do think that there will be some tweaking along the way. Great pics and some great ideas too.

Enjoy your day!

Kudos to you for spring decorating. Love those bunnies! I still have yet to implement any spring/Easter decorating and I'm hoping to finally do some this year.
