{ a few of my favorite things... }

Our humble farmhouse is filled with things that I love....
the smell of fresh herbs,
...the texture of chipped paint & hooked rugs...

redware & transferware and
abandoned turtle shells found in the woods....

old childrens clothing,
tin candle sticks...

old weathered barrels,
discarded textile spools....

fabric covered boxes, old bottles, ironstone china,
feathers and birds nests...

all keep me happy, searching for things to fill my heart...
The new issue of the Country Sampler Special Homes Tour magazine has me going crazy.
I am loving the more primitive, austere homes in it, yet am also drawn to the bright, cottage, garden-esque look that a couple homes share too...
how do I mix it up for my home?
I call it
"Primitive Farmhouse Style"

what style of decorating is your favorite???
{please take my poll at the top of this blog}
I'm headed out to town today, to ship off orders and go to market...
thinking about fresh salmon for supper, with garlic potatoes and asparagus...
Hoping you all have a bright & cheerful day, regardless of your weather!!!
Blessed be~
Lori

thanks for sharing your favorite things...all lovely! I too have my favorites but am drawn to differnt styles when reading country magazines...I've decide that I just am going to have to own different homes, each decorated in a different style! :) The dinner menu sounds great, what time should I be there???

Oh I do love your style!! I just wish I had an old farmhouse to put my things in, not that I don't love my home or that I'm not thankful for it, but an old farmhome is my dream!

Hi Lori,
Kirby was reading your post me just a bit ago and said "WOW you two women think just alike!" I love your blog and enjoyed seeing your favorite things. I'm a primitive lover too but I've been kicking around the idea of making my bedroom white on white for over a year now. There's something about the shabby cottage style that calls too me but I could never give my primitive style all together. I guess I just love everything! Thanks again for the wonderful post and have a bright, blessed day!

Oh Yes . . . on the salmon and asparagus!
In my mind Asparagus is a vegetable to be eaten DAILY!
