Saying Goodbye To Sale Blog

Saying goodbye to our sale blog was hard.
Knowing soon we will be closing our doors to the cottage.....we felt having a sale blog would be pretty useless- and then we will be saying goodbye to Simple Dimple Primitives blog.
We will keep this blog in use until after our Closing Sale.

Thanks to our readers who made blogging fun..... we send {{hugs}} & love!

Don'tcha just Love Antiques?!

From old crocks...........
to old barn wood & hooks......
and let us not forget old windows......

Simply put.....we love antiques!
There are new arrivals at Simple Dimple Primitives~ and here is a sneak peek.
The coolest thing about antiques~ they came from another time period.....another home where the old farm table was used to knead dough for dinner bread........the old chippy chair was once Grandpa's favorite to sit while eating lunch...........the galvanized bucket that was used for milkin' cows or scrubbing the kitchen floor.
There are endless possibilities for antiques & junque!
We have the ideas and possibilities!!
Come and see what we can offer at Simple Dimple Primitives!

Stay cozy!

*Stay Warm & Cozy~

Winter Wonderland

We decided to take a winter walk this afternoon. Everything looked as if it were inside a snow shaker. Trying to capture the wintery scene behind our property~ it was impossible to capture it all. The beauty of snow covered trees and farmhouses looked very much like an Ansel Adams photo.

My Dream Job!

Perhaps I could turn Simple Dimple Primitives into a chocolate factory?
I am a choco-holic. I hide it, I eat it, I hide it to eat it more, I purchase more after IT has been eaten, and then I hide it for later...... BUT 15 minutes LATER I'm eating IT again!
If I were to be hired at a chocolate factory, within 15 minutes I would be FIRED. Yes, sadly I wouldn't be able to keep up with packaging - not due to the chocolates moving too quickly on the chocolate line.....but due to my chocolate obsession.....there wouldn't be any chocolates to package! I would hear those two words......YOUR FIRED!
Oh, Mr. Hershey, Mr. Cadbury, Mrs. Godiva and Ms. Ghirardelli I thank you all for creating what every chocolate lover needs........weekly trips to the gym! Enjoy your chocolate moments this month!

New Employees?

Be My.....

A friend is like a Valentine~
Heartwarming, bringing pleasure.
Connected to good feelings,
With memories to treasure.
Seeing a special Valentine~
Brings happiness to stay;
And that's what you do, friend.
You brighten every day!

Dance {dans} verb
1. move rhythmically to music,typically following a set sequence of steps:
their cheeks were pressed together as they danced.

2. {with adverbial of direction} (someone)
in a particular direction while dancing

What does dance mean to you?

My a dance.

I mentioned this fabulous little book in a recent post- so I'm going to mention it again......
DANCE While You Can~ Lance Wubbels

Though I have many favorite "dances" in this book, my most favorite is:
"While I can still dance, I will dare to open the vaults of my heart and mind and express my feelings for others. And I welcome others to share their hearts and minds with me."

I decided I would like to have this structure for Simple Dimple Primitives II.

Oh, Baby it's cold outside!

On this last Saturday in January- I decided to spend some quality time in the cottage and do my inventory. What??!! It's cold here in PA today.....and as much as it may seem like I'm whining....I am! It's only the end of January....and while I invite the month of February with all it's red and's velvet heart shaped boxes filled with chocolates......celebrating Valentines Day, my sister-in-law has a birthday and the Chinese New Year.....I will be anxious to begin filling the cottage with new furnishings and decorative items. Cold or not....I am looking forward to a new month.
I've been networking with some wonderful ladies who own small businesses and we are coming up with some very new and exciting ideas for spring and summer events.
There are a few surprises up Simple Dimples sleeves too!

Here's wishing you a very cozy end of January weekend.......
Stay *warm* & cozy!

Tender "home" moment.......
Oh, let it snow....let it snow....let it snow! *

Following Mrs. Sharp

"Home is where we start from", T.S. Eliot observed. Today a century after he was born, "Home" is the place where may people are longing to return.
In "Mrs. Sharp's TRADITIONS" book, readers may find themselves returning to home.
January might seem bleak after the bright lights of Christmas and Chanukah. But Mrs. Sharp believes this season of King Jack Frost offers families enriching opportunities for "getting to know you" with both healthy outdoor pursuits and relaxed indoor pleasures.

I remember, I remember
How my childhood fleeted by,
The mirth of its December
And the warmth of its July......

Eating Goober Peas......

"Peas, peas, peas, eating goober peas- goodness how delicious eating goober peas...
When a horse-man passes, the soldiers have a rule- to cry out their loudest "Mr. heres your mule!"
"But another custom, enchanting-er than wearing out your grinders eating
goober peas!"
"Peas, peas, peas, eating goober peas- goodness how delicious eating goober peas!"

My plantation rocker moment

As I mentioned in a recent post~ I love sitting on a plantation rocker!
While relaxing on this dark "apple green" rocker, I was taking in all the sites
and sounds.....when a very not so little visitor came and jumped up
on my lap. I'm a cat lover, so to me, this was a moment of "ahhhh how
sweet!" Within a few seconds I learned that my tabby visitor had no
intension of curling up on my lap.....he wanted my caramel-coffee crumb
cake that my hubby just brought out to me! As you can see by my expression
it was a shock that "Yankee Jake" was pretty determined to grab a corner of
my cake......and all along, I thought it was my lovin' he wanted. Oh, well....
He never got my cake.....but he did get some lovin'.
Side porch of the "Lightener Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast".

While searching for Antique Samplers....I found this one
on an antique site......I've never seen anything like this before.
I am not a collector, but when I occasionally find a sampler that
really catches my eye- I can't help but think of the person who created such time
consuming art work! I've never been one for needle point, cross stitch,
or anything that has to do with needle and thread. Let's just say, I'm lucky if
I can sew on a button! But I do love and admire the work and skill that goes
into samplers. Last evening, I found myself watching the Antique Road Show.
A woman from Georgia was on with her great-great aunts sampler- and it was in
perfect condition! That particular sampler went for $3,000. I'm not thinking I'll
be purchasing any samplers any time soon! But you must admit, they are a beautiful
work of art.
