My Prim Goodies and Antique shopping!

Today sitting on my porch was my order from Lisa at Prims from Above. I did a happy dance all the way into the house. She did a fabulous job ladies! I just love my signs. I'm not sure if I will keep them there or not but I may end up hanging my yellow ware sign up above my pie safe. We'll see! Until then I thought I would give you a glimpse of what they look like. If you want to check out more of her work check out her selling blog too Londonberry Primitives. She did a custom job on my yellow ware sign to match my bowls too. Isn't she fab? Thanks so much Lisa!

The olde crow sign

I put this on my little table in my bathroom.

I took the kids to the library for a sign language program this morning and then to lunch at our own little Antique station. I was on the hunt for some new things. You just never know what you might find. I found a great big wicker basket that I will probably use for laundry or to display some of my quilts. Then I find a vintage pyrex pie dish (score!) and some pretty little dessert cups. I made some yummy Strawberry Granitas the other night for dessert and didn't have a thing to serve them in so I think these little babies fit the bill. Also, I love this little batter pitcher. Something about it said take me home! Well, I'm off to go try another pie crust. If anyone wants to share I'd love some advice. I'm on a quest to perfect pie making. The crust is what's giving me trouble. So I'm trying to learn all I can about it so far I haven't made anything tender or flaky. Wish me luck!

  1.

  2. The little batter pitcher is so it and the nice size basket!

  3. Hi Carey,
    Love the signs that Lisa made for you. They look great where you put them. I love the little batter pitcher...I collect white pitchers and I've never seen one like it before.

  4. Great thrift finds! I especially like the basket. :) And I love your new signs. Can't have enough of them. :)

  5. Love your new sign, Lisa did a wonderful job :)
    Great finds too, love that pitcher!!

    Have a happy weekend!

  6. Hi Carey,

    LOVE the basket and of course the sign with your yellow ware!!

    I don't make pie crust often but I do know that not overworking it and chilling everything helps keep it flakey. My freind puts her ice trays on the counter where she is going to roll out it, and even chills the flour ahead of time! Good luck!!

    hugs, Linda

  7. What great finds Carey - I sure love the little batter pitcher.
    Lisa does just awesome work doesn't she. I'm thinking I'm going to be needing something from her soon!
