Saturday Drive and Some Prim Shopping
Dh and I had a nice day today. We took a leisurely drive down Rte 28, through Middleboro, Lakeville, Marion and Rochester. I love that road because there is a lot of historical areas with 18th century homes and I enjoy looking at them and imagining what they are like inside. We stopped at a couple of nice gift shops on our trip. One was the Gingham Goose in Rochester which I love! The owner has such lovely prim gifts and reproductions and the set up of her store is so gorgeous. I bought a long iron hook to hang a period betty lamp that I have on, and a few placemats to make pillows out of. Yes, I make pillows out of placemats. lol I will show you a picture when I am done with these. I always have a huge wishlist when I leave her shop! The next stop was the Ansel Gurney house in Marion. It is a nice shop in an 18th century home. It has 11 rooms of this and that. I didn't buy anything there, but it was fun to look around. On the way back home we saw another shop in Middleboro that has primitives and there was a sign in the window that said 40% off. We are going back tomorrow I think because Dh was tired by the time we passed this one and a tired Dh doesn't make for a good shopping experience..lol. I hope everyone had a great day today.
Hello, I have loved and decorated in the primitive/farmhouse style for over 30 years. I love to shop for antiques and love garage sales and thrift shops. I like to try to repurpose things that I already have and live a pretty thrifty lifestyle. My husband and I live in a late 1800's farmhouse style home along with our 3 children and numerous cats and one dog in Massachusetts. We have lived in this house for a year and a half. We have been collecting antiques for many years. I am always thinking of new ideas for display of my beloved prim accents, and wanted to share them with others. I will also be talking about my prim style gardening when the seasons allow, family life, pets, cooking and whatever else comes to mind.
