What Do You Like?
I was asked yesterday by Donna (Sweet Prairie Dwellings) what I liked...I almost could not answer her. I love anything that is old and was "used" back then. I call my house primitive...MY style of primitive...with stuff everywhere. Some people call it country and yet some call it a mess, but it's my mess!! I read the post on Jen's blog (Taylor's Farmhouse Attic) and really was amazed at what a person would say about someone's home. True, I do not have the off white walls...I LOVE COLOR. True again that my house is NOT sparsley furnished as it was way back when...not all houses were, but it is my love of things of olde that tug at my heart and make me want to collect...it all!! How could you leave something behind that you truly loved just because it will mean that there will be "too much"? My home is full, but that does not mean that I will not find"the perfect piece" to add to my collection. Will I pass it up? Not on your life, it will come home with me and be displayed with pride. Almost every piece that I have I can tell you where it was from and what it was used for...and I feel very honored to have history in my home. So with my mix of primitive, colonial and country I am happy and you can tell that my home is full of love. Your home is beautiful Jen, keep collecting!
O.K. The post title...What do you like? I have already said I have a mixture of prim and colonial with a lot of collecting going on...what's your home like? Do you have that one thing that no matter how many you have you still need more of (crocks...be still my heart).
I am working in the home shoppe today...lots of painting still needs to be done and I will also be working on the horse pull toy needlepunch.
Here's to finding the perfect piece and happy collecting what's in your heart.
