Girl's Day Out!

Today was my friend Sandy's birthday, and we have always celebrated each other's birthday's by having lunch, exchanging gifts, and if we can we always try to do a little prim shopping. We are fortunate here in this small town to have three wonderful primitive shops. Along with them are several antique malls also, so you can spend the entire day out and never leave town.


This is my favorite shop......Two Sisters. I never leave that shop without finding something I just have to have. Today I found a prim reindeer, a feather tree, and a couple new prim ornaments, and a small candle wreath. But my favorite find was a darling primitive gingerbread that I will be showing you later on when I start decorating for Christmas. This shop is just crammed full of primitives, but they are best known for their fabulous candles that are made right here in our area, exclusively for them. I can spend hours here......it is a two story home, and every room is just filled to the brim with fantastic items.


The rain stopped just long enough for me to snap a couple of photos.......this is Sandy on her 53rd birthday! She would probably kill me if she knew I was posting this photo...:) If you look to the left you will see another favorite shop, and that one is the "Farmers Daughter". We were hoping to go there today also, but between the rain, and running short on time we didn't make it, but in a week or so we will be visiting that one too, so I will snap some better photos then.
Even with the rain, it was a wonderful day......we spent time here at my home, having coffee, and catching up, and then of course it was present time. So after opening gifts, we went out and had a great lunch, and then hit a couple stores, with Two Sisters being our last stop, and of course the one we were in the longest. The shops are all decorated for the holidays, and I cannot wait to start mine soon. It has always been a tradition with us, to get our lights on the house, and get our porch decorated on Thanksgiving day. Then the decorating begins in the house the following day over the long weekend. I have decided that this year......less is more. I want everything to be rather simple, so hopefully I can get it all done in three days.
Hope everyone has had a good day today! I just came from visiting blogs, and the creations are just amazing, and the makeovers are all fabulous! I just love visiting all of you! Till next time.........Blessings to ya!

  1. I don't think I could enter a cute shop like that and come out empty handed either!
    Enjoy your fun stuff.

  2. It is my dream to visit your town someday and linger in those shoppes for a couple days. Will certainly need a tour guide if I do. Can't wait to see the pictures when you post them.

  4. You are so lucky to have prim shops in your
    town, they don't have many of them in the
    South. I can't find them anyway. What a great
    way to spend the day with a friend!
