New Products Added...

We are bursting at the seams with new merchandise for our online shoppe and I'm so excited to show just a few of my favorites to you here on my blog.

First is a great sign that would look perfect over your door or propped up on a shelf with your favorite crow collectibles.

Our Colonial style candle sconces are very popular and the new Washington's Sconce is a double candle sconce with an area around the base of the candles to hold pip berry candle rings or potpourri.

We have a new supplier and are excited about the stackable boxes they offer. We also brought in many of their sampler pillows and this one is my personal favorite out of them all.

We are also restocked with many of our favorite treenware including the egg tray below filled with realistic looking brown eggs. We have new treenware as well including pantry buckets and scoops!

Something my husband gave me....

This is an excerpt from a book on Colonial/Early American Times that my husband passed on to me and I just love it.

Noah Webster, "Advice to the Young" 1834

"In your mode of living, be not ambitious of adopting every extravagant fashion. Many fashions are not inconvenient and expensive, but inconsistent with good taste. The love of finery is of savage origin; the rude inhabitant of the forest delights to deck his person with pieces of shining metal, with painted feathers, and with some appendage dangling from the ears or nose. The same love of finery infects civilized men and women, more or less, in every country, and the body is adorned with brilliant gems and gaudy attire. But true taste demands great simplicity of dress. A well made person is one of the most beautiful of all God's works, and a simple neat dress, displays this person to the best advantage."

Since my husband, and especially myself, dress simply and plain, he knew how much I would appreciate that "Advice to the Young" even though I'm not so young anymore. LOL!

Many Blessings,

I'm still here.....

It's been so long since my last post, I just wanted to pop on here and say that I'm still here!

We've been so busy with our online business, and I just returned from a shopping trip yesterday where I shopped with a new vendor and am bringing in a whole new line of products! It was a fun day, and I shopped until I dropped. If bringing home a van full of primitives for my website wasn't enough, two shipments came in today as well! It will take some time for me to get them added, literally about 90 new products (if not more) and restocking old favorites! I told you it was alot! So worth the wait, I'm excited!

We've been enjoying lovely Spring weather with today nearly 70 degrees! We're getting spoiled, but I'll take it....we had school lessons on the sunny porch today, why stay inside!

Speaking of lessons, homeschooling our oldest, Seth, is going wonderfully through Agora Cyber School. My only regret is not doing it sooner. Even though it adds to our busy day, it's well worth it and we are all enjoying it! Sam is excited that we can start the enrollment for him for first grade next year.

And if that isn't enough, I'm starting a new quilt...no more throws or wall hangings...I'm going for the big one! Wish me luck!

That's it for now....pop on over to our website http://www.finecountrylivingprimitives.com/ to see the treenware I stocked and other favorites back online. New items are coming as soon as I possibly can!

Many Blessings,
Mary Jo
