What a Difference a Year Makes!
This was the backyard last year at this time! We had over a foot of snow on the ground and icy temperatures. This year we have had not more than a stray flurry since a weird storm in October and it is already January. The temperatures have been for the most part in the 40's and 50's. I keep thinking we are in for a biggie soon, but it just doesn't seem to be in our future ( for the next week anyway). I guess I should be grateful, but I do love seeing the snow on the ground. I love sitting at the kitchen table and looking out across the river and seeing the Canadian geese with a snowy backdrop. I love the bright red of the cardinals against the pure white getting their seeds from the feeders. Hubby and I are thinking about taking a ride out to a an antique/prim shop we have never been to before this weekend. It's about an hour drive, but since the weather is so favorable, I figure we might as well do it while we can. I hope you have a great weekend!
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.
