What I did for my birthday!!!


On Saturday it was my birthday and Sim took me out for the day. We went to Holly Michigan. This is an old town that still keeps it's history. It has alot of Antique shops. But one of my favorite shops was "Holly Hills Primitives". The shop owner is Dawn and she is a blogger too. http://www.hollyhillsprimitive.blogspot.com/ She took my picture while I was there and has it posted on her blog. You can see more of the inside of her adorable prim shop on her blog. This cute picture of her front window with the clothesline was one of the first things I noticed when we drove through town. So cute! It was pretty cool to meet my first blogger in person!! Dawn was so sweet!!

Sim and I have been looking for a garden gate for the longest time for me to use for my inspiration board in my new studio. Sim was so sweet he found one on Craiglist! and surprised me with a road trip on Friday night. This is the first time we have ever bought anything on Craigslist. He hooked up his trailer and we drove Friday night down to the town of Saline Michigan. The lady was also very sweet and she had the most awesome primitive house I've ever seen!! She took us inside to see a few things!! It was like walking into a prim shop!! Every room was prim. She even took us out back and showed us her guest house and greenhouse, and backyard. It all was very cool.

Sim and I have been very sick lately with this darn cold we keep passing back and forth. But we both sucked it up for my birthday and spent the weekend together. I love our dates!! I'll show pics of my gate soon, it's already up on the wall over my desk and is perfect!!  XO Fran.
