Downsizing our collections...

Hello all! Well, our jobs, finances, health and a few other factors have caused us to realize that we must move onto other pastures. In order to do that we will have to lose about 1500 square feet of stuff. Our Picture Trail is just beginning to list some of our favored collections.
Drop by and take a gander, if you see something you are interested in then give us a shout. More to come...

Pinkeep Doll ~ (SOLD but her sisters are coming!)

Thought I would share a picture of a Pinkeep Doll I created today. She is posted on my PT and others will follow. She is an adaptation of one that I own with changes to protect the original designer. She is filled with poly and crushed corncob. Her body is a textured fabric that resembles linen and has been painted as are her eyes and lips and large head pins make her hair do. She is 6.5 inches tall and 5.5 inches at the base. A 100% cotton 'dress' in blue print adorns the bottom and a vintage button necklace is around her neck. Her nose and brow is pinch sewn. She is $24.95 plus travel. Check it out on our Picture Trail, Shadetree Primitives.

Paul Revere Lanterns ~ Authentic Reproduction of North Church Lanterns

(Lanterns are SOLD!)
We are selling these registered and commissioned Bicentennial Lanterns on our website at

Here the pair is pictured on their Walnut or Mahogany bases. The bases are 9.5 wide x 9.5 deep and are 1 3/8 inch thick. They have a 1/4 inch green velvet covered recessed well where the lantern sits.

Research shows: These are exact museum reproductions of the famous Paul Revere~Old North Church Lantern made available in 1975 as an official bicentennial collectible. Only 1000 pairs were sold and were produced in sterling silver.

The pair we have are numbered EP1021 and EP1022. They were commissioned by the Concord Antiquarian Society of Concord, Mass.

We are asking $750.00 for the pair (under market value) plus travel and insurance.

They truly are works of art that will keep on giving, immaculately clean and show just a few marks on the wooden bases in the upper finish.

If you have questions or can offer any additional information, please contact us through our blog or the Picture Trail.

Well, I guess we are out of the starting gates with this new selling blog. Pamela and I plan to offer a variety of homemade, one-of-a-kind primitives, a few antiques, some refurbished country items, a real mish-mash of things.

So join us as we venture down this new road in our lives!

We are starting off with a new idea (at least to us) of Yo-Yo Bracelets. Each one is handcrafted from print cotton fabrics. They come in toddler size, child size and teen/adult size. They are $5.00 each plus shipping and we will be presenting them later with buttons, bells, etc.

The bracelets are quite the fad at our granddaughters school. They surely are prettier than those rubber band thingys.
