I'm Gonna "Tattle"

There are so many wonderful shops on ETSY.  Sometimes it is difficult to find what you are looking for.  One way to help you find a particular "look" is to go to a Team.  I am a super happy member of
a team called Old Farmhouse Gathering.  If you LOVE the primitive look you will LOVE OFG.  All you have to do is go to the window and type in OFG and all of the items from all of the shops will come up or you can limit it a bit by typing in OFG Halloween...and you'll be in Halloween Heaven.

Let me introduce you to two wonderful shops.  The first shop is FirecrackerKid Primitives.  Tim and Carol are the talented couple who together make up FirecrackerKid. Together they make the neatest primitive wooden items.  Everything from a simple candle sconce to an entire wall of cubbies. Tim is the man behind the saw and Carol is the finisher.  She offers so many authentic colors and finishes. Your wish is truly their command.  They are always open to special orders.

Let's take a look at some of Tim and Carol's items:

Rolling Pin, Bowl and Paper Towel Holder

Wooden Hotel Key Cubbie
Candle Sconce
These are just three of the 75 items you will find my typing FirecrackerKid into your window.

The second shop I'd like to introduce you to is BasketsbyRose of Farmington, Michigan.  Rose is the wife of a veteran and her son's are both currently serving our nation in the military...and I don't mean state side.  Rose is proud of her military men.  She is equally proud of her Etsy shop and the baskets that fill it.

Rose's baskets are unbelievably useful..yes I said it...useful.  There is a "Crayon Basket" made with primary color trim that is so perfect for children's coloring books and crayon container.  Rose also makes the best "Stair Basket" made to set on the bottom stair with items to be brought I'm not promising someone will come along and actually bring it upstairs but it sure will look beautiful while it sits there. Another basket I love is the "Watermelon Basket".  Yes Rose actually paints a beautiful slic of watermelon on the inside bottom of the basket.  Rose is a one person wonder.

It's time to show you some of Rose's Baskets:

Crayon Baskets
Watermelon Basket

Stair Baket

Visit BasketsbyRose at your earliest convenience.  I promise you some fun browsing.

Well that's it for today.  Hope you enjoy the two shops I've "Tattled" about today.
