this old farmhouse....
then dress her in hues of bittersweet, orange, sky blue & brown....
nothing too fancy or store-bought ~ old & worn is so much better.
her stately old brick chimney lends an air of colonial sophistication to an otherwise simple home.
always ready to offer her warmth and hospitality,
my old farmhouse seems to hug me when I come home...
as I've mentioned in my previous postings,
I am carefully choosing what beloved items to adorn her with ~
Halloween Dolls & Folk Art are my absolute favorite :
filled with old tools
memories of the hands that used them ~
my Feather Tree dressed for Hallow's Eve glows softly in the evening hours ~
~ our blue mantle is set for the Harvest Season...
can you see that his tail is a blur?
can you also see that my cuckoo clock's weights and chains are now hung on the clock itself?
Hmmmm.....I wonder what (who) could have made me do such a silly thing....
All in all,
I am simplifying...in my own way I guess!!!!
I still love 'stuff' and really have paired down quite a bit in the last two days ~
really, I HAVE! :)
