Perfect Country Weekend!!

where does one go for the perfect primitive needful for our home?
to a good old Cabin Sale!
This is my friend Donna Smith and her husband Don's beeeeautiful cabin
in Afton Virginia...

...that's where i was yesterday,
demonstrating and selling some of my rugs & punchneedle pieces...
her little cabin is just perfect for her antiques and primitive sales,
and she asked a few good country friends to join in on the fun!

dolls and textiles from Hen House Primitives,

Mike Marshall's handmade furniture...

Cabin in the Woods (from North Carolina) beautiful booth

country wares...

clever displays!
I had a great time there with friends,
I even learned to play the Mountain Dulcimer, and now I have to buy one for myself!!!

you can see more of Donna's offerings on her website:
Today will be spent going through my house...
I have again, as in the past, somehow cluttered it all up again with little knick-knacks and tchotchkes that I really don't need, so I'll be boxing them up for a yard sale...
after being in Donna's cabin, and seeing that clean, refined and uncluttered look, I have to get my little farmhouse back to that...
a breath of fresh air!!
Do any of you find yourselves doing the same thing?
or am i just wonky?
Blessed be, Country Friends!!

No Lori...you're not "wonky"! I do the same thing. That's why it is so nice going to people's homes to get ideas. I do it all the time! I look at your farmhouse pictures and get inspired. Your friend's cabin looks wonderful! What a fun time you must have had!

Oh La La! I am loving those log cabin walls, they look like a faux job I did on a house in Santa Barbara. What a cool backdrop for your gorgeous needlework. It all has so much "atmosphere", Thanks for giving me a little inspiration tonight! See you soon, Will

There isn't much I like better than a good clear out! It makes me feel SO good! I love the idea of "traveling lightly." What a lovely day the sale was held on and how pretty everything looked. Makes me happy just to look at it!

Doreen said...

Ohhh..just gorgeous. Look at all that wonderful furniture! I do that same thing....now and again I will get the need to declutter and rearrange everything. :)

Have a great day!

How wonderful! I would have been in heaven surrounded by all those country goodies!

Cinlyn said...

What a wonderful weekend! And you are not alone dear friend...Since moving into this house, I've gone thru and weeded out in all areas on a pretty regular basis! I still don't know how I accumulate so much in a short amount of time!

I'm cleaning out as we speak, I tend to load up on the gadgets, tire of cleaning them, move'em out, couple of months, move'em back in or get new. It's the primitive cyle of life!
