Country Freckles: Primitives, Antiques & Hooking...What's Not to Love??!

Oh my HECK!! I had some kind of fun yesterday!!
My friend, Cathy, from Red Barn Rugs was teaching a rug hooking "finishing" class yesterday at Country Freckles in Wisconsin Rapids.  Joni from Country Freckles carries some of Cathy's patterns and wools, and Cathy teaches various classes there from time to time.  Yesterday was one of those days, and I seldom pass up a chance to tag along....

Now...I ask - what's not to love about a store that has primitives (furnishings AND decor), antiques, and rug hooking??! Yikes!  Country Freckles is one of my favorite places to go....It's a little hike for us (about an hour and a half away), but WELL worth it.  Soothes my primitive soul just walking in the door.....

Joni graciously let me take some pictures to share with you:

These are a couple of smalls I brought home with me:   :o)

A bunny poke:

Another bunny (a girl can never have too many bunnies...or bears...or birdies....or sheep....or....):

And a little Family Heirloom Weavers tablecover:

And some eggs....ones on the right (the ones on the left are from Wanda at Gatherings...):

If you are ever in our parts, stop in at Country Freckles...Trust me, you're gonna love it! And it's HUGE....What I've shown you is just a smattering of what's in this place.  Holy cow!
Tell Joni "TheCrankyCrow" says "hi"!
The store is located at 1010 8th Street in Wisconsin Rapids (Wisconsin, of course).
Joni also has a blog:

You can see more of her store there!

Robin, You were at Country Freckles on Friday? My husband and I were there on Friday later in the afternoon. That's the first time we've been there and I really loved it. You live in Hamburg, WI? I live in Antigo so we actually aren't that far from each other. Maybe someday we can meet.

Ok, I'll take the dark red cupboard with all the luscious wools in it. You can just have it shipped up here to MA! I'm trapped here with a major cold, so I really appreciate that you took me antiquing today!
