Hello, hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
We took a trip South to Huntington for a surprise ‘75th’ birthday party for my sister. So much fun to chat with family!
This morning I was thinking about all of the ‘bling’ that is so popular now days. And although I love it, I still have a fondness for primitives.
See, even my holiday décor is eclectic. A mixture of styles.
I have pulled a small amount of primitives together here in our basement family room. A few primitives mixed in with a bit of junk.
Sitting atop my incubator I have a trio of vintage suitcases.
Inside one I placed an old Clorox bottle, a wooden bowl with etched stars and a cute kids Halloween book. A rusty rack of some kind holds a couple of Halloween graphics. More rust is added with the fireplace shovel and the splatter utensil. Must confess, the shovel is there to hide a t.v. outlet. lol!
It’s so fun to read about the adventures of ‘The Jack-o-lantern Twins”.
A smaller Clorox bottle holds a branch to pull your eyes up to my primitive ‘October’ stitching.
A few more brown bottles sit on the cabinet with two wooden spools.
I found this old key amongst my sisters items I was selling for her at our vintage sale. Loved the case and the patina on the key.
Another brown bottle sits inside a rusty tin.
I have had this primitive pumpkin head doll for years. I thought she was perfect for this vignette! Notice the little brown insulator on top of one of my spools?
In the window sill I have a funny ‘primitive’ cat hanging from an old shutter. I bought him in CO 6 or so years ago. I thought he was so funny that it made him cute! A white and black (spray painted) pumpkin sit atop a rusty metal tray.
As you can see, I don’t have curtains yet. Still trying to decide what I want to do. I did buy the chair at Pier 1. Threw a gold pillow in it for Fall. The light fixture turned candle holder I bought from Tracie at Fishtail Cottage,
Sitting next to them are a couple of fun radios.
The other window sill holds pumpkins in a ‘primitive’ carved wooden black bowl.
There you have it, Primitives,Pumpkins, and Junk!
I will be sharing with these fun blogs:
