It's been a while since I have sat down to write in this blog.  This has been some "winter" hasn't it?  It sure hasn't been the typical Ohio winter.  We have only used the fireplace in our family room just a few times.  I am wishing for at least one really good snow before spring arrives.  I miss seeing the snowflakes coming down.  I love sitting by the window in my sunroom with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee.  It just makes for a fantastic day!  The world seems so quiet and at peace.

I have come to a difficult decision.  I have decided to close the Persnickety Primitives gift shop.  We just don't have enough traffic here to sustain a gift shop.  We roll up the sidewalks in our little village at night (wink).  Really, we only have a bank, post office, gas station, dairy bar and a Subway.  That's just about it.  I don't mind, though.  I love the quaint quietness of our village.  That's why we live here.
I will be taking my merchandise from the gift shop to my friend, Janie's shop (Janie's Closet) in Hillsboro, OH who will sell it for me.  This is the shop where I sell my primitive bag dolls.  I will keep several things in the cabin: the wood stove, the hoosier cabinet, the fireplace, the dry sink and several pieces of wall decor to keep the cabin decorated in the primitive style.  We have a fire ring beside the cabin where we often have cookouts and weiner roasts and make Smores.  The cabin will make a nice addition to our cookouts for our friends and family.

I will continue to write in this blog promoting the primitive and country decorating style and way of life.  I will be visiting many prim shops and attractions that I will write about in this blog as well as writing about my "treasures" that I find when I am out and about.  Please check back often as I am back in the blogging business!


  1. So sorry to hear you have to close your shop Frieda. We live in a small town too and my dream is to open up a primitive shop.
    I hope you continue to blog, it's always nice to see everyone's treasures!
    Welcome back by the way!
    Looking forward to hearing from you again!
    Prim Blessings
