Greetings everyone! What a fun Saturday! The weather was gorgeous, the trees are beautiful and my daughter and I had a girls day out! We left Dad and the boys home watching football while we went out for the day!
We stopped at Nelly’s Nest! I had never been there before. One word, fabulous! It is a cute little house filled with primitive, antique and handmade treasures. You can check out Nelly’s Nest’s Facebook page HERE. Become a fan!
Janelle, the sweet shop owner let me take some photos to show all of you. Are you ready for some primitive eye candy?….. Enjoy!
My daughter and I met the artist who crafts these dolls! She was in the shop. Her name is Paula Conner and her work is amazing ! (Red Door Primitives)
Doesn’t it make you just want to “come on in” and browse!?
I saw so many things I would like to have, but settled on just a few. I got a faux grapevine garland, that looks so real. Some mini gourds, a bundle of wool samples and a cool iron jack o lantern. When I get all of my goodies displayed I will post photos!
I will definitely be going back to Nelly’s Nest!
My daughter and I went to a paint your own pottery shop called Paint Yourself Silly! Fun, fun, fun!
We have been there before and always have such a good time! Here are a couple of the pieces I have painted on other visits~
Leaf and Berry Platter~
Trick Or Treat candy bowl~
Here is the piece that I just picked up from the pottery shop today. I painted a bittersweet plate~
And here is the piece I painted tonight. It should match the bittersweet plate after it is fired, It is amazing to me how incredibly different the colors look before the glazing and firing process.
Here is my daughter Emily’s two creations! She painted the names of all of her favorite t.v. shows around the plate and calls it her “t.v. dinner” plate! How cute! She also made herself a cereal bowl! These will be SO bright and colorful after firing! We CAN’T wait!! We really did paint ourselves silly! FUN TIMES!
Fun day! Next time I will have another prim shop to share, a WONDERFUL swap package that I received in the mail today from a special friend. And photos of where I put those swap goodies and all my new goodies from today’s shopping trip! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
Until next time, take care.
