A Peek Around My Festive Home

I thought I would snap some pictures of my house all decorated up! It's been an ongoing thing since the beginning of December. I have pictures of the bathroom, to the kitchen, living room and porch! Hope you enjoy!

It's Snowing Again In Northern Iowa

No, I don't believe it'll stop 'til April! This is the third big snow storm we've had in the past 14 days. They are calling for more snow through out this week. Never good the week before Christmas. Way too much to do and get done! Luckily, we had a very sunny Saturday and lots of people showed up at The Rusty Nickel to finish their purchasing. Let's hope Thursday and Friday can be just as nice for all you last minute shoppers (don't worry, I am one of you!) Just wanted to let you know we are open 10-5 Thursday and 10-3 Friday, Christmas Eve. I have actually gotten a few things done over the weekend so I do have a few new wooden, stenciled and distressed signs done. A few you can use all winter long, and we know how long the winter weather lasts in Iowa. We could have snow until Easter :(  Many blessings until the next time!

A Very Snowy Weekend

Unfortunately, the weather was not cooperative this weekend. I don't know officially, but we got atleast 6+ inches here in Northern Iowa. Along with that 40+ mph winds. It was not pleasant! It did help me get into a bit more of the holiday spirit. I did do some more decorating and bought several new items on eBay (my weakness these days.) I've been working on a few things that you can see at the shop this Thursday - Saturday 10-5. Hope to see you there :)

Christmas Is In Full Swing at The Rusty Nickel

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Erin Petersen and I live in Manly, IA. I have recently been able to follow my dream and put it into action. This fall I opened my own business. We are a small antiques/primitives/home decor shop! We have lots of seasonal items. We are not open everyday and I think that helps us stay so unique. I wanted to share a few pictures of our offerings.
