We’ve been Goosed!


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….lindas3
Love this bedding…lindas4

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…040
She also blogs over a The Country Nest! Look at the gorgeous cabinet she is taking home. She has great taste!! 051
Audrey chatted with 2 gals that were admiring her home feature in the spring issue…053
..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… 003
Now don’t be mad at me that I focused a lot on redware and yellow ware….006
BE STILL MY HEART….. 008

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!

Beautiful pictures! What a great shop and home! Didn't mind the yellow & redware pics at all! I halted at the corn dryer with the bobbins, and then I read your comment. Too funny. What a clever idea and why didn't we think of it before? Thanks for sharing your day. What fun!

It looks like it was a wonderful day! The pictures are wonderful, the shop looks amazing, and Barb's house just keeps getting better and better.

I was also surprised to see that it looks like Barb has schnauzers. They are the best dogs ever!

The sign she gave you is wonderful! What a treasured gift! I am so happy that the day went so smoothly!
