On Saturday morning, the sun shined brightly as Audrey and I gathered ourselves up, despite our heavy hearts and sadness that Bonnie was not joining us, and we headed down to Rochester, MA to meet up with our cover photographer Margo at the Gingham Goose signing event. This had been planned for some time and Barb and her staff did a wonderful job getting the shop filled to the brim with prims, antiques and spring goodies and getting word out to her customers about the event. We were not about to let them all down!
Margo took some great pictures of the shop for the blog….
Love this bedding…
We met so many wonderful folks that stopped by to have us sign their copies of the magazine and share their love of primitive decorating with us.
Rob and Judy O’Bryan – I loved hearing how they came to primitive decorating and how they share the quest for the next piece.
Gail and John Werra – you will see their home in a future issue!
My dear friend Donna Glidden who told me about the Gingham Goose a few years ago. You will see her gardens in a coming issue…
She also blogs over a The Country Nest! Look at the gorgeous cabinet she is taking home. She has great taste!!
Audrey chatted with 2 gals that were admiring her home feature in the spring issue…
..and Barb had a gorgeous cake for us and coffee and cold drinks too. It was so yummy!!
And then Barb so graciously let me take some new shots from around the house…
Look at this gorgeous (new to her) old cupboard…
…and I love how she used an old corn dryer to hold her bobbins! Shh .. don’t tell anyone that I am stealing that idea!
And just look at those firkins…
Now don’t be mad at me that I focused a lot on redware and yellow ware….
BE STILL MY HEART…..
Look at the arks and animals…..
LOVE this old stone fruit…
Oh wait – who do we have here… some fur babies wanting to join the fun and eat some cake!!
As the afternoon wound down, Barb said she had something made especially for each of us…a gorgeous sign! Well that had my eyes leaking – such a thoughtful generous gesture. I know we will each treasure this forever!
Thank you, Barb, for making us feel so welcome and to all your customers that came by to see us. It was a very special day! To find out more about the Gingham Goose, you can click ~HERE~.

Warm hugs and prim blessings, Linda
