Another sneak peek and some giveaway news…

Yes, it’s true!! Another sneak peek already!! This past Tuesday, Audrey and I stayed fairly local for a shoot at a wonderfully prim home. Cathy has an amazing collection of antiques and  she displays them perfectly! It was hard to narrow these down to just a handful…
How about a few more????
And what is this I see?? AHA – the Premier Issue!! Didn’t I tell you Cathy has great taste?
It was such a pleasure to visit and shoot this home – and spend a little time getting to know Cathy.  Watch for her home is an issue later this year!!
Giveaway news!!
This month’s giveaway is an original handmade from a dear blogging friend. How I wish I could show it to you right now ~~~~~ but you’ll just have to come back Tuesday for all the exciting details!!
Everyone at APP would like to wish our Jewish friends a very Happy Passover and to all our Christian friends, a very Happy Easter.
Thank you for making the APP blog a part of your reading today!

Are you ready for another sneak peek?

Once again Audrey and I had the pleasure of visiting another gorgeous home here in New England and meeting another delightful couple.  While Audrey spent time with Tommy and Linda finding out all the wonderful details of their home, I got busy taking lots of photos! Of course I can only share some little snippets - I hope you enjoy them!
And last, but certainly not least…391
After the shoot, we made a stop at a sweet prim store right down the street - Bittersweet Blessings, 465 Derry Road, Chester, NH 03036. Michelle and Barbara Stein had copies of APP right out on the counter and were delighted to learn we worked for the magazine. They graciously gave me permission  to share a few photos with you ~
After a yummy lunch at Cracker Barrel, we stopped at a wonderful antique store – Upton House Antiques, 275 King Street, Littleton, Massachusetts   01460

where we both rewarded ourselves with some small treasures.  Audrey introduced me to this great shop last fall.  Click on the store name to take a tour inside. You won’t be sorry!
And today we are staying local for another photo shoot so please do stop back later this week for even more sneak peeks!
And if you haven’t seen it yet, click ~HERE~ to see APP on YouTube!
Thanks for making A Primitive Place a part of your day today!

Awake, Thou Wintry Earth

No matter how long the winter, 
spring is sure to follow"

It has been the longest winter in history 
for all of us in North Dakota. 
We dodged a major winter storm yesterday. 
Some areas received 11" of snow. 
We ended up with about an inch. 
The snow was very pretty this morning.
I captured this photo in our backyard 
here at A Primitive Place. 
I love the contrast 
of winter and spring in this photo.

"And spring arose on the garden fair, like the spirit of love felt everywhere; 
And each flower and herb on earth's dark breast rose from the dreams 
of its wintry rest." 
~Percy Bysshe Shelley
