Show-off Time


I finally got around to taking a few pictures of some recent goodies.  Well, in all honesty... I guess I should say I finally got around to doing some dusting before I could take these pictures, hehe!

Don't you just love this adorable bonnet that I bought from Lecia over at Farmhouse Prims?

I was so shocked to learn that she has only been creating and crafting this past year!  Her bonnets are wonderfully made and primmed!  Lecia was so sweet to let me pick out what color I wanted and how primmed I wanted it to be!  I love it and I knew exactly where I wanted it to go... on one of my favorite family heirlooms.  This awesome highchair has a lever on the back that can lower it to become a carriage!

I will share more of the highchair later, that will be a post for another day.  I love the beautiful mustard color of my bonnet!  Thank you so much Lecia, I love it!!

My sweet and beautiful friend Katie gave these adorable little vases to me "just because".  Love them and love her!  I am going to get some single spring flowers to put in each one.

Katie is my one and only friend that lives near me that is getting into prims, YAY!  Finally someone to share prims with!!  She doesn't know it yet, but she will be starting a blog hopefully soon, hehe!  We are going to the Amish community down the road from me tomorrow.  I can't wait to eat at The Dutch Pantry, shop at The Amish Cheese House and hit the antique malls there!

I also received a wonderful box of goodies from winning the giveaway that Tricia over at Hillcrest Home Prims was hosting.  This adorable little shirt is going in my laundry room as soon as I get a peg hook board made for it but for now it looks right at home with my little Amish collection.  It's so sweet with its little cinnamon stick and homespun hanger and it is primmed perfectly with little holes and stains, love it!

I really love this beautiful throw but I'm not sure where to put it.

My daughter got the bright idea to put it on the school desk and since I'm too lazy right now to move everything off of it, this is where it will stay for awhile.  I will probably end up draping it over the desk instead of laying it across it.  Thank you Tricia, I love them both so much!!

Lots of deep cleaning going on here at the Berry Homestead.  Trying to get as much done as I possibly can so I'm not stuck inside when we reach that 70 and 80 degree beautiful, sunshiny weather!

I hope you all are having a blessed and delightful week so far!  Spring will be here in a few weeks...

Hey Angie!
That bonnet looks adorable on your beautiful highchair!
I'm jealous of you going to all those Amish shops. Yrs. ago, our living room was decorated w/an Amish theme. I'd send ya the rest of it if I still had some. :))

Warm hugs!

Hi Angie! Spring cleaning can be so much fun...putting away the winter woolens and brightening up with spring pretties. I love your bonnet and the vases your friend gave you. They will be so pretty with the single flowers in them.

Happy March ~ Happy (almost) Spring!
