The love of the primitive...






I love the texture of old feed sacks, plus the concept of using them to cover 'not so perfect' surfaces, is to me a really cute touch...very PRIMITIVE. Yes it isn't for everyone, but what cute accent pieces here and there in your home, on a porch or in the kitchen, with the lil' prim lampshade to shine through a glow. I can see them mixed in with whites or a French country look. I just love so many looks, it's hard for me to choose a favorite...so I won't...I want them all!!!

I am also getting ready for the pours on my primitive candles for fall. The scent is called 'Fireside' and has a slight scent of the campfire with a floraly, kinda masculine cologne scent. I love this one, it is just screaming FALL and that cozy inside, kinda book readin' weather.

These are all displayed in The Candle Shed, but will be taken to Sisters' for the Fall Open House in two weeks.

I am becoming mesmerised by all these treasures you find! I used to wander garage sales and 2nd hand places in Sydney NSW and Launceston in Tasmania. But since being in Melbourne Victoria, I am not seeing them around so much!

But now I have found your lttle corner of the world, and the old juices are rising again! Love all these pieces! What a magic atmosphere they create!

Just getting caught up! Being away from home makes me miss my strong internet service. I've been at my mother's and hers was dismal.

I hope biz picks up for you! But the thought of a warm winter in Florida looking at and smelling the ocean does seem wonderful!
