On The Road Again

      Well the movers have taken all our things and headed in the direction of Virginia. Now that the whirl off that part of the move is over I am tired, and ready for the drive to be over. This is an exciting move for us. We will be meeting some family along the way and they are going to travel the rest of the way to the new house with us.

   It will be wonderful first week in our new house. Not only will it be Thanksgiving week, but we will be surrounded by family. It may not be a grand Thanksgiving, but it will be a memorably sweet one. Hope that all has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Primitive and Rustic

       That is me, I am a primitive and rustic kinda girl. Don't get me wrong I love girlie and pretty things too, but primitives set my heart a flutter. Rustic things grab my attention, when other would usually just walk on by. I had an identity crisis a few months back, I was seeing beautiful shabby painted furniture and lovely white linens and thought that I wanted to re-decorate. Yet, when I would pull to far away from my primitive roots it didn't feel right. I was attempting to put a disguise on my true decorating style. I have found however that some of my shabby finds blend beautifully with my simple, primitive treasures. Lesson learned don't pretend to be someone you are not even when it comes to decor.
