I knew that it was coming because I had ordered it, but I wasn’t quite sure what was inside. Let me explain…..You see we moved to California from New Hampshire about three years ago. Back in NH, especially the Seacoast Area, there are many little shops that sell handmade items. There are antique shops, craft malls, country stores that sell homemade breads and cheeses, boardwalks on the coast, and so many fun shops too numerous to mention. One shop in particular became one of my absolute favorites. As soon as you enter the driveway you are surrounded with “Primitive Goodness”! The grounds are beautifully landscaped, there are large and small decorative items everywhere you look. There are birdhouses, flowers, wagons, barn stars…well you get the point. When you enter the shop, your senses awaken with the delights of potpourri and candles wafting in the air. Well since we have moved it has been hared to find some of the “necessary items” that I so took for granted. Buying from the internet is wonderful, but there are some things that you just can’t be sure of what you are getting, especially when it comes to your senses. Well the shop I am talking about is Susie's Bittersweet Treasures. It is an amazing shop and if you are ever in or near Rochester NH, I urge you to drive on over and check it out. You surely wont be disappointed. Well I e-mailed Susie when I found out that A Primitive Place magazine was holding a magazine signing at Susie's shop. I explained the things that I would like her to send me including a signed copy of A Primitive Place magazine and she responded, “I know exactly what you want and I will get that right out to you”. Well she DID know “EXACTLY” what I wanted because as you can see from the pictures it is all simply amazing. I just wish that you could smell the wonderful potpourri that includes little white stars and rusty bells, that is filling my house with a wonderful aroma.
This is what arrived in the box…..
