Handicrafts, Quilts and collections have always had an important place in my country home. Out of necessity, I am often stepping over the threshold of a thrift or antique store to find that special piece to bring home. By bringing a bit of outside inside like displaying flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables enables me to enjoy the textures and delicate perfumes of nature all year round. Using baskets of all shapes and sizes help organize me as well. Irrisitable aromas of cooking make my country kitchen the heart of my home. Oh how I love to cook, and my cookbook collection continues to grow.
I really like the warm inviting color of red in the hub of my activies. Somehow the kitchen is my center..and it is full of chicken things.....that spill into my diningroom... I can honestly say it is like playing house, and you are never to old to do that. Spring will be coming someday soon. ( I hope) and I know I will be working on adding a few New touches so that will mean more trips to the fabric store, collectors corners and the bank account. That's where it may get challenging.... going over the budget I'd better go count my pennies, I wonder if there are coins in the couch? and ya know I am sure glad I don't need to buy film for my camera....batteries are bad enough.
