Falling for primitives and the Cat’s Cradle!



As I mentioned in the last post, each time I take photos of a featured home, there are always more pics than Kristine can print. When I photographed the home of Lana and David Testa last fall, I knew from the minute I got out of the car that this would most certainly be the case. Their Cape Cod colonial was a feast for the eyes both inside and out!  Fall was spilling over every window box and corner of their yard and continued inside. Please enjoy these extra photos taken that delightful fall day!













If Lana’s name sounds familiar to you it is because she creates the exclusive APP Collector Series dolls that are offered in each issue.  To see Percy, the newest member of the family and the rest of the series, please click ~HERE~!


This coming Saturday, Sept 3rd, Audrey and I will head to South Hadley, MA and we’ll be at the Cat’s Cradle Country Shoppe,  265 Hadley St {route 47},   from 12-3 to sell and sign the fall issue. We always enjoy our visits with Sandi and Wayne and if you know them, then you know why we always leave Cat’s Cradle with a smile!  If you haven’t met them yet, we’d love to introduce you so please join us! ! You can visit their FB page by clicking ~here~!


  Our hearts and prayers go out to those who lost loved ones, homes, property or their livelihood during Irene’s wrath.

Until next time, prim blessings,

Linda and the APP staff

The Cat's Cradle is my favorite primitive shop! Sandi and Wayne always have the most amazing and unique pieces made or repurposed with their own special touch! Always a pleasure to stop in for a visit!

Love APP magazine, and am sorry that I will miss meeting Linda and Audrey on your upcoming September 3rd visit to Cat's Cradle. Have to work Saturdays, so hopefully we'll meet another time! Enjoy your day!
