The Apple Tree

While we were preparing to leave Nebraska, I was worried about finding my next new favorite place to shop in our new area. I asked on A Primitive Place if anybody knew of a place in AZ that wood be what a girl like me was looking for. Well- one person answered with an awesome suggestion. It is called The Apple Tree. Girls, when I finally made the trip to this store and walked inside the door, it was instant love. I was like a little kid at a toy store. I wanted 1 of everything. It was so much fun to just walk around. In the back of the shop is a section of stuff that must be there on consignment. I found a platter that matched the dishes that I started collecting over the summer. This platter and a copy of A Primitive Place magazine are the only 2 things I walked out of there with. I was trying to be good, but I had my husband with me, too. For Christmas my dear, sweet husband came back to this shop, all my himself, to buy me a gift certificate. He also walked around the nearby antique stores and found more of my dishes(i'll post more on this later). So here is what my gift certificate went to...

A cute little gameboard. I'll have a gameroom in the new house where this will look perfect.

A small crock of fake pomegranents. Too bad only 1 pommigranant shows.

The rest... a washboard, wooden bucket, basket, 2 candle holders w/ battery candles, and another crock.

So right now I'm just stocking up on things for the new house. We aren't puting anything on the walls in this house since we know we don't have a lot of time here. I can't wait to be in the new house so I can get everything out to look at until my heart's content.

Also, I'm looking to change the name of my blog. I just don't like the current name at all. I would love some help with this if anybody has any suggestions. Maybe something like My primitive desert home??? I don't know.

Thanks for coming by.
