Good evening! I think it’s official – Spring never existed! I believe we went straight from Winter to Summer. Although, with that said, I think we are going to have a cooling next week. Sad to see so many are suffering from severe storms across the country though.
The recent Simple Goods show was a huge hit! I had a wonderful time and want to thank everyone who came out to see us at our new location in Berlin, Ohio. Berlin is a quaint town in the middle of Ohio Amish Country. The new facility was spacious and incredible. If you missed the spring show – be sure and put the fall show on your calendars for Nov. 3rd. Here’s just one corner of the Simple Life booth!
That reminds me too, that discounted admission tickets are now on sale for our Days of the Pioneer Antique show on Sept. 14th and 15th! As you know, all the money raised at this event goes directly to support the museum. This is going to be our best year yet so I hope you’ll join us!
I always like to share good things I’ve found or experienced like books, movies, events etc. Although this is not historical or primitive – I’ve been binge watching six seasons of the television show, “Parenthood.” It is so great and while I saw (and cried through) the final episode last night, today I feel like I lost a dear friend! Check it out on Hulu. It’s wholesome and so real – you’ll find yourself reliving many moments that have probably happened in your own families. The excellent sound tracks throughout all six seasons is an added bonus!
After Simple Goods, I went up to Alliance, Ohio and picked up our newest family member! Meet “Folsom!” I met Folsom last fall at a book signing event at Bridgewater Primitives. Lesa, the owner, knows I love dogs and support dog rescue so she had their local shelter bring a dog for the event and encouraged guests to bring food to donate. I fell in love with this boy – but was not in a position to get him then. Sadly we lost our senior dog in January and as our hearts mended, we knew we were ready for a new boy on the farm. “Opie” was his name at the shelter and sadly he had been there for over 3 years. After watching him at the open house last fall I knew he was a wonderful dog that was well socialized. The owner of the shelter told me that Opie made other dogs better and that they always put dogs with severe anxiety in with him and they always got adopted but he didn’t. Well Folsom is now the love of our lives and we absolutely adore him. He is perfect! Please friends, when considering a new pet for your home – go and save a life at your local shelter. So many amazing animals are in need of your love! And you might just find that they end up rescuing YOU! I know Folsom rescued ME!
