Merry Little Junky Tree

This was so unique that I just had to share!  This is a true 'junkers' Christmas!  Enjoy!  Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!

Livin' The Dream...

This is a great little vid from one of my favorite magazines!  I sure miss living in the south where one would have more access to such fun!  Check it out:   Flea Market Stylin'

Beaming for Burlap!

I am attracted to burlap this year!  It's just so 'earthy' and warm looking and reminds me of  down-home, natural things!  Found some fun ideas for you to tackle, in your spare time!

Thought I would post some 'before' and 'afters'.  I'll try to be better about taking pics of the projects before I dive into them!  It seems to always be an after thought for me!  Here are just a couple projects done in the past couple of months...more to come!

Freaky Weather...

This weather for this time of year, here in Minnesoooota, is so weird!  Don't get me wrong...I'm not complaining by any means because our yard couldn't look better!  For the first time ever, we have everything cleared away for when that snowfall hits!  Yard is raked, toys are picked up, bikes are put away, etc!  So, since the weather was in the high 40's today....this is what I was up to!  Check out the fun rocker with the chair pad I rigged up from sewing the ends together of a fun, braided rug I tripped over at an estate sale!  And this cute Sellers table couldn't look more sweet with a better set of chairs...I just happened to be 'sitting on' within the back of the 'storage'....which, was my main objective for the garages are for parking in!?  What?  A two-stall garage is supposed to hold the two vehicles we possess and not seven dressers, three table sets, two hutches and numerous chairs, hutches, and end tables!?  Such sad news!  So as I can continue to reside here, I have successfully accomplished moving 20+ pieces of furniture so that the vehicles can safely park away from the future elements.  Geesh.

Blog Slacker but not in the Daily Grind!

Holy Cow!  I knew I needed to get onto the blog and update it but certainly didn't realize how many months have gone by!  I assure you I have not been sitting around!  It has been a manifest of flea markets, estate sales and uncovering of junque yard finds!  I recently got into my booth at Annabella's Antique Mall in Bovey and updated with some Seasons Greetings and super fun finds!  Check it out on here and then scurry yourself on over there to grab it before the great get going!  The family and I are headed to Southern Minnesota for the holidays and do I ever have hunting on the brain...for finds, that is...not critters! :(

Also brought in new seasonal scents in your favorite soy candles of all time!  Absolutely sold out over the Hunting Season openers on the soy melts, but I've slowly recovered the stash!  Enjoy!....

I've been busy working today on fun Valentines projects to bring into Annabella's Antique Mall!  Stay tuned and I will post pictures of the end results!  * New News:  Instead of just having a FaceBook page...I now have an actual "Friend" please be sure to search for Prairie River Primitives on FaceBook and befriend me to stay more current on what will be going on this new year!  The nice thing of being back in business is that people have hunted me down and let me know when they have really fun and cool things to sell, I've been buying up lots of great pieces I'm working keep watch!  I sell allot of ladders at my booths in Annabella's , so I wanted to quick post a fun photo of a 'ladder idea' for you all!  I'll try to be more creative this new year with ideas for your fun primitive/shabby finds!  Many blessings to you all in this next new year!
