Do you see camping in the background? Now all entrances where blocked off with signs and barriers.
This just to the right of the sign inside the park
Nice cloths line...
Okay Ragbrai came into town for a over night FREE stay. For those of you who don't know what Ragbrai is... they are cyclists who ride across the state. Ride so many miles then stop overnight for a rest then and they move on. Friday night was our town for a stop. We had an estimate 20,000 people come in for the night. The chamber of commerce decided that they needed to close down the entire town square-both blocks, open schools that have just been cleaned, free electric, showers, lights, gyms etc. Well the chamber thought that this would bring business into our town. Well I don't know how much money they brought in but I can say they or some don't obey laws, rules or signs as you can see from above. Just wanted to share another just when you thought you seen it all....
Okay here is the last sign. I was informed they will be removing my lawn ornament tomorrow morning. So here it is.... Does anyone know what the initials mean - it is a saying? BOHIC... Post what you think the saying is in the comment section. The first one to answer it correctly will win..... drum roll please....
My brand new set of Primitive Black Lumpy Pumpkins.
I have received so many emails with some great signs to hang on the porta potty. Now there is no way I will be able to post all the signs because the lawn ornament is only going to be here for a short period of time so I have decided to make this into a contest. Send my your saying that you would post on the porta potty to my email - firstname.lastname@example.org. I will then gather all the phrases and post them for a vote. Everyone will be able to vote on there favorite sign for the porta potty and the one with the most votes will win a prize. I will be accepting sign phrases starting now till July 24. I will then post all the phrases for a vote. On July 31 I will post the most popular phrase and that person will win a prize! Plus I will find a porta potty (if the one in my yard is not here anymore), make the sign and post it for all to see! So you have just over a week to come up with the best PORTA POTTY SIGN!! Have a POTTY OF A TIME!!! Just can't wait to see them all!
Well....today is Wednesday and I think the sign sums up today. Yes, girls its hump day and I have already had a heck of a morning and quite behind. Hope you all enjoy today's inspirational sign. I need to get to work. Blessings Vicky
Good Morning to all my faithful followers. I have posted my sign of the day for my lawn ornament. I think the sign speaks for itself. ENJOY!!!
Okay the last sign which I will not know when that will be depending on when they take the potty away, I will be having a contest. This is the ultimate sign that one of my friends was so wonderful to share with me. Hint... it will just be a bunch of letters and you will have to figure out what it is. The first one to guess the correct sign will win a prize from me. It will be something primitive and a handmade item so keep an eye out for the posting.
Well today is Monday and I have vowed that I would hang a new sign while my new lawn ornament was in my yard. So today's sign is The Crap Stops Here. Now I have to say hubby is not happy with me due he thinks that this will make them take even longer to put down the new road. He advised me not to do it but you know me I just had too! I took an oath. Until tomorrow...
Okay, with my warp sense of humor I have decided to make a sign of the day. I went to post today's sign and one of the workers was so kind to help me post the sign with duck tape. Now I can't all the credit because my partner in crime egged me on. Until Monday.... LOL
I forgot to mention in my previous posting that about 2 weeks ago I saw a truck pull up to my front lawn and drop one of these off.
Yes, a porta potty on my lawn front/side lawn. My home with the window in the background is my house. The little tractor is in my driveway on my property. Do you think they are here for a while? There is a empty lot just up from my home you think they would of had some dignity and placed it there. Not on someones lawn. Just when I thought I have seen it all.
Okay I will start off with the good news. I participated in a swap with the prim sisters gathering and received a wonderful item from a good friend Valerie. Now I have to say I have had my goodies and it has been displayed for the 4Th but I am now just getting around to posting the awesome American Display. SORRY!!! I was so thrilled when I received my goodies. She not only sent this entire display but she sent a photo of how it went together. Hats off to you Val!! I LOVE IT!!!! Thank you so much!!! Here is a link to some of Valeries goodies she has for sale: http://primsistershoppe.com/Vendors/sites/YorkiesPrimitives/index.php
So yesterday I decided to go outside and take a few photos of what a bang up job our small town is doing with giving us a brand new street. They started the street the week before Memorial Day. Its now 8 weeks later and they have a quarter of the street done. It wouldn't be so bad but I have no access to my drive way and with all the trucks and equipment I have to park a 1/2 block away on a side street. Now we all know its not really that bad but after you have gone shopping for groceries and have to lug them a half a block and its hot with lots of cement dust it gets old real quick. Now on behalf of the workers I have to say the weather has not helped in them fixing the road any quicker. The story continues....
These photos are taken on my front porch My husbands boat is our new lawn fixture because we can't get it to the garage The photo above is what is left of my drive way.
Okay now those photo's were taken about 9:00am so later that afternoon this is what it looked like. I happened to look out the window while cooking supper and this is what I saw....
MORE STORMS ROLLING IN.... is it ever going to end? I turn on the weather channel and they were on there way along with funnel clouds that were spotted south of us. Well I'm hoping to have a road and a drive way by winter. LOL
I was born and raised in Rhode Island but now reside with my family in a small town in Iowa. I began my business in the mid-nineties, traveling from craft show to craft show and also displaying my items in local craft stores and then opening my own store. As the public's interest in primitive decor grew throughout the years, so did my business. I decided it was time to expand and offer my handcrafted items over the internet.
I have a true passion for primitives and just can't get it out of my system! I take items from the past and give them a true primitive look! All my items are handcrafted by me and I believe in quality not quantity.
