Dewey Ok is the place to go for.......

I promised to tell you about Dewey OK! This is a wonderful little town right outside Bartlesville and not to far from Tulsa. My sister took my hubby and I to visit late on a Saturday afternoon. Some of the little shoppes were already closed up I did get to visit Cedar Creek Collectibles and talk with the wonderful owner Judie. If you ever get around there pop in. You open the door to this amazing shop and it just smells like yesteryear. It is full of vintage, primitive and antique steals. They carry Swam Lake Candles which smell out of this world. You can find very unqiue cards and posters as well as dolls and signs. Check them out if you get to Dewey, OK.
After we left Cedar Creek Collectibles we were walking around the town and we saw a sign that said handmade fudge. Just a little hole in the wall but who can say NO to fudge especially homemade fudge so off we go. Well, when you walk into this store there is a small outer porch area, covered that is filled with jelly beans. THEN you push open the first door into the real store and you are amazed at the wonderful reproduction FABRIC!!! Yes there is a small area with homemade fudge but the fabric is to die for! Fat quarters and by the bolt you are amazed at this little space the wonder it holds. The name of this shoppe is Featherbed Fabrics & Fudge. My hubby said it was a "TRICK STORE" they tricked him into taking me into a fabric store.

So if you get around Northern OK check out the wonderful little stores in Dewey OK!

Cruising Bartlesville OK

The family took a little trip north of the red river to Bartlesville, Ok last weekend. My sister lives there with her family of teens and we went to visit. I LOVE BARTLESVILLE! Driving through Texas and Ok is fun the sites were awesome and since I love vintage and primitive, you can imagine how much fun i had. Keelee took some snaps as we past of old farms and homes. It was amazing to see the damage of this years ice storms on the trees. WOW!
Once we arrived in Bartlesville we checked into our pet friendly hotel MicoInn and headed to see the family! Everyone in bartlesville is just so nice and friendly. My sister and I talked for hours it seemed like. ALL the kids were laughing at us cause we are both deaf and it seemed to them like we never stopped talking to each other.

Saturday we set out to visit some of the places in Bartlesville that I wanted to see. The first place we visited was the Red Dirt Soap Company in their new downtown location. OH my the wonderful scents that slap you in the face when you open their front door!!!!! All their soap is created right there on site using the cold press method. They carry soaps, bath products and awesome teas. You can check them out online at http://www.reddirtsoap.com. YOU will not be sorry!

Once we grabbed some lunch we headed out of town to check out Keepsake Candles. I had visited this candleshoppe about 12 years before and wanted to see if it still grabbed my attention like it did them. YES it does and more. To begin with when you pull into the parking lot you are pulling into the neatest log cabin you have ever seen. Outside you will see an old train (not a small one a HUGE one) and old farm equipment. I knew the first time we visited i would love this place. Once inside you will find all kinds of candles! It is so hard to explain the beauty of this shop and i can tell you their website does NOT do them justice. You can see them online at http://www.keepsakecandles.com.
Let me tell you they make all their own candles right there and you can actually watch them create candles and melts. I brought home one of their very unique candles. Keepsake candles creates a style of candle that is made into a candle. The outer containers are created from a high quality wax into which they pour wax that will melt. YOU will be amazed when you see the containers that they are not the real deal. Teapot candles that are amazing....
