Simple Ramblings From A Prim Cottage

Saturday Find Rearranging and Prayer Answered

This week has flown by alot of good and bad this week but such is life.Saturday I went on my adventure...I found nothing but Hubby found this....
He liked the handle on it and the price was right it fits in nicely with his collection (it's the third one in)
We decided to also head to the city because this one store was having blow out TV deals and hubby has waited 4 years to buy a TV they had them really cheap at this store and We've had a 52 inch projection TV so we are selling that.Anyhow we missed the exit and ended up in the city.Hubby does not do well when lost,me not a big deal.(especially since I have GPS) He tells me to stop staring at people,well really I wasn't I was looking at the houses which had lovely details but alot were left to dilapidate and yes I might have looked at the man riding his bike drinking a 40 oz beer.Just me I like to look.For me I thought new things to look at.I also asked him to stop at one place and he said don't you watch the news? He said what street are we on? I told him and he said there were just 2 shootings last night on this street.Well my hubby is a big sturdy guy but he was right he definitely didn't fit in with his camo hat,hunting shirt and country boy style..LoL.. So we did find the place  and hubby bought his TV which lead to me having to rearrange the whole living room.What I haven't figured out was the projection TV was much bigger and had a case built around it so I could display things.Well the smaller TV set the room off so I had to rearrange everything....Moved the large crock and box here.Also changed out the crocks under the spinning wheel...
So he comes home from work and see's everything stacked in the middle of the living room..I'm not good with change so it takes me awhile to decided exactly how I want things.Once I got things displayed I don't change often like alot of you except the seasonal areas.Anyhow he says You are not getting rid of all that it's your good stuff.LoL..Glad he realizes..smile..I explain that I'm just rearranging which he totally didn't get since the new TV is half the space as the old....Had to move the dough riser it was on the other side of the room....
See the TV peeking out..
This old shelf is were the TV sits on now.I'm still working on the displays in there..The other problem was the horse.I've always displayed him with the rocker off.Well hubby decided about 2 weeks ago to put the rocker on.I appreciate that he notices and takes interest in things I love so when he does things I try not to be negative but the rocker takes up alot of room so it took some finagling to.(is that a real word?)
So the pitch fork,horse,firkin stack and jug got moved to this side of the room.Ignore the tape measure it's not part of my decor just needed it to help figure space..smile...

So now the house is back together...Wanted to update you on dad the prayers must have worked the new lump is not a tumor they said it is a side effect from the chemo.Thank goodness! Hubby's friend was in a bad accident this week he is going to live but will probably be in the hospital 6 months sad as he has a baby due this week..Hubby also had a tooth break so today we are trying to get him into the oral surgeon he is in so much pain.I'm not looking forward to the cost as we do not have insurance.Always something but I will say in general I am Blessed.Some days you just gotta look a little harder.Yesterday was 60 degrees Today 40's just crazy weather this year.My flowers are popping up then it gets cold and they wilt.I'm hoping the Ground hog predicts 6 more weeks.I want at least one good snow.Yep I'm one of those that enjoys winter.It's my nesting instinct..Oh and for everyone in the swap your partners were sent.Any questions just email me..Well girls I've gabbed long enough so enjoy your day! Warm Blessings!~Amy

Traci said...

Lost in the city...one of my worst fears, LOL... Neither hubby or I do good in the city, we are just too country, LOL

Your redecorating looks great, everything fits perfectly. Hope hubby gets his tooth fixed soon, ouch.

Great news about Dad, that's a true blessing! Hugs, Traci

Sheila said...

Good morning Amy~
Wonderful news for your Dad! Hope your hubby can get his tooth taken care of quickly.
Loved seeing the pics of your rearranging project and the new coffee pot!
Have a great day~

Kerri Arthur said...

Great job rearranging your displays!
Congrats to Hubbie on the new tv! Sounds like a great ending to a crazy adventure!

So glad your Dad is doing better and that worked out well!

Weather here has been totally nuts too! Was 70 here yesterday today much cooler and raining.

Looking forward to the Bunny swap! Thanks so much for hosting!

Have a great day! and good luck to Hubbie on getting his tooth filled!


Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

Wow, so much going on in your life right now...good news about your Dad and so sad about hubby's friend. I'll be praying for him...and for you dear, that things calm down a bit and you can relsx.
That silly ole groundhog does say more winter, and from experience I know that Feb and March can really sock a punch, so I'm prepared, but have been enjoying the mild weather too.
I'd better get busy on bunnies! Hugs and blessings

Hi Amy, so glad your Dad got good news!! I know that was a relief for him and you. Poor Hubby, I hate toothaches, hope it goes well.

I love the new coffeepot!! Like seeing all your wonderful treasures again too!!
Take care!!

Sandi @ The Primitive Skate said...

Hello Amy-
Great news about your dad. I will keep him in my Prayers.
Sorry to hear about your Hubby's tooth. I have one that's bothering me, but no insurance and no money. So I have been dealing with it.
Everything is looking good with you rearranging.
Have a wonderful day!

Christine said...

Thank the LORD for answered prayers re. your dad!
Rearranging is a big deal for me too but afterwards I'm glad I tried smthg. new.
Blessings to you - and your hubby and tooth!

Glad to hear the good news regarding your Dad. Your trip to the city was quite an adventure. I love all the neat things that you have to decorate with. Good Job.

You have had quite the week! Love all the rearranged goods and hubby's new find! My hubby changed TV's on me in the Fall &caused the same display dilemma here too! So happy to hear about your dad. Will pray for hubby's friend & his painful tooth & that God will provide the money.

Penny said...

Hi Amy! I'm so happy to hear the good news about your dad! What a relief to you all.... Sorry about your hubby's friend's accident, and the pain your hubby is in. Prayers being lifted for everyone....

Love the rearranging you did to accommodate the new t.v.!! The room looks great. Love that rocking horse -- what a great piece!!

Take care, Amy.... blessings to you and your family.

What a extensive collection of graniteware coffee pots!I love how they go from biggest to smallest.
Good new about your Dad~ I don't know how people do it in the U.S. with no insurance. They must do something. In Quebec almost everything is free, except dental,eye exams for those over 18 (children are free) and breast ultrasounds. (and medications of course) Everytime I have used my medicare card, I have been thinking of you, and your Dad. I do hope that something is done, no one should have to pay to get medical care.

Linda ★ Parker's Paradise said...

Thank the good Lord for your Dad's positive results, but really sorry to hear of the broken tooth. OUCH! I know how you feel. We are uninsured people, as well. So much for the Obama plan there.
You have many beautiful things and they look wonderful to me.
I, too, hope we get snow! Our ground is so dry. We need the moisture!

Hi Amy, I am so thankful for the good news about your father! Hope your hubby's tooth starts feeling better. Love your decorating, you have that special prim touch. Hugs, Lecia

frontporchprims said...

Your husband had a good weekend it sounds like:) "Stop staring" is something I hear too. I can't help it. I like to watch people. I like the way you are rearranging things. I like the stack of firkins. Glad to hear your father is fine. Take care. -Steph-

tj said...

...That is such good new about your father! Behold the power of prayer I say. :o)

...Sorry to here about the chipped tooth and no health insurance. We too are living without health insurance at this time and I don't like it at all. You have to do what you have to do but I will certainly rest easier when we have it again.

...I just adore your home! You have a keen eye for decorating and placement. I too don't change things around very often. It seems if I find the right place for something that is where it stays. My husband had to have a big flat screen and it hangs in our living room but our plan, or should I say "my plan", is to purchase an antique stepback cupboard for it to be housed in. When times get better of course. ;o)

...Thank you for sharing your photos - just wonderful!

...Blessings :o)

WOW! I can't believe your hubby comes home and says to you, you're not getting rid of that stuff are you? Mine would be jumping for joy at the thought! LOL....
So glad the lump for your dad is jsut a side effect and not another issue... and fingers crossed that everything works out! OLM

cynthia lee designs said...

Great news about your dad.
So sorry about your hubby's friend...sent up a prayer for him and his family.
Love your decorating...everything looks great.
I remember all the redecorating that I did when my hubby got a new flat screen tv. Got to make those big tv's look great amoung our prims. LOL...

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

Hi Amy...I guess you did have a busy few day.
So happy your father's outcome was good...prayers are strong...and will pray for your husbands friend.

Goodness you two went through a lot to get that TV...and such a huge project in the living room as well after getting it...you have quite a collection of treasures to find homes for and it looks like you succeeded!


Kendra said...

Yep, that's a word, so is frugality: the state of being frugal...in my dictionary anyway : ).
The house looks great. I agree, I don't like change either, it's unsettling, creature of habit I guess!
Dad's still on The List and I am adding hubby ; ).

Hugs and smiles,

Hi Amy, So glad your dad to hear the good news about your dad, I know it is one less thing to worry about. Isn't that the way it is, bring home one thing and have to rearrange the whole room. It takes me forever to figure out what goes were, stuff may sit around for days. I love you stepback cabinet, great primitives, love your dolls. Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving me a sweet comment, I always love hearing from you. Take care, Hugs Vicky

Prims By The Water said...

Glad your dad is doing better Amy. Am loving all of your crocks! It takes me awhile to redo stuff too. You did a great job on your redo. Stay warm, Janice

Lee Hill Primitives said...

Amy, Thanks for visit my blog and leave a sweet comment. You have amazing antiques in this pictures too. You need to make the challenge, I am sure that we will enjoy it so much. Hugs, Eve

Vicki said...

Hi,Amy. Glad you Dad got that good news. Hope hubby's tooth is on the mend and didn't break the bank. Prayers for your friend that had the car accident. I hope his wife is surrounded by family and friends as the baby comes. Hugs!

TheCrankyCrow said...

Wonderful news about your dad!! Hope he continues to get good news and prognoses (ok - I THINK that's the plural of "prognosis"!!) ;o) Love your hubby's new treasure. Wow - lucky thing you - wish my hubby would have a collection of ANYTHING I could enjoy. His display is pretty amazing. And loving all your "tweaks" to accommodate the new telly. You have so many wonderful treasures. I so feel your pain about the insurance....Our dental insurance wasn't the best, but it's definitely better than none which is where we are now as well. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
