~*Friday Finishes*~

Hi ya Dear Friends & Happy Friday!  Oh goodness... this has been yet another whirlwind of a week!  I've been busy trying to get things together for the new shop.  I've met with the county to get permits... and talked with the insurance company to make things straight with them.  My beloved husband built me some General Store shelves... and I sanded, primed, and painted them.  He also patched up the floor on the porch... and I painted that.  Then today... I visited some sales looking for more inventory.  Oh... and I have baked 3 pies just this week!  One peach pie for my dear MIL for her birthday (Happy Birthday Mary), one cherry pie for my dear StepDad for his belated birthday (Happy Birthday John), and one chocolate cream pie for my husband... just because he needs treated after all he does for me!

Also this week... I did a little stitching!  I never can get enough of that done!

Thank you, everyone, for the continued thoughts and prayers for my StepDad.  He is doing alright.  His doctor exams have been well.  He will still be having surgery in the next few weeks.  His spirits are up... thank you again for your prayers!

Here is a lovely ~*Friday Finish*~ shared by Ana Christina... ~*Sunflowers N' Crows*~ Freebie...
 Lovely work, Ana Christina!  The sunflowers are so cheery!  Thank you for stitching and sharing. *smile*

Here is what I was able to finish... amidst all the other stuff I've been working on... my own finish of my latest freebie ~*Halloween Freebie 2012*~...
 Would you like to see the front of my future shop?  Here is the future... Primitivebettys...
 As seen from across the road with the trees in the yard... I just love all the trees we have!  To the north (left side of the house) is a small, cozy wooded area.  Some day, I hope to host primitive gatherings here.  Vendors could be set up in and about the yard and woods.  Oh, I think that would be so dreamy!  Don't you?
 And my new shelves thanks to the handy work of my darling Tony!  I have plans to fill them with all sorts of goodies... handmades, antique, and vintage.  The items setting on it are newly acquired goods as of this morning...
Wishing you all warm smiles... and a blessed weekend...
