NEW RUG FINISH....


I RECENTLY HOOKED THIS RUG FOR OVER
MY BED AND LOVE HOW IT CAME OUT.
IT’S CALLED THE HOMESTEAD 
BY WINTER COTTAGE STUDIO ON ETSY.
I ELONGATED IT A LITTLE ON EACH END
TO MAKE IT FIT MY SPACE.


I LIKE HOW IT LOOKS WITH MY 
SALTBOX LOG CABINS QUILT.


I ALSO FRAMED A SAMPLER WITH LOG 
CABINS I STITCHED SEVERAL MONTHS AGO
FOR OVER MY ANTIQUE WALL BOX.
THE SAMPLER PATTERN IS BY JOYCE REED.
I DID CHANGE IT SOME TO SUIT MYSELF.


HERE ARE MORE VIEWS OF MY BEDROOM.
I LOVE TO DECORATE WITH PRIMITIVE HOOKED
RUGS, SAMPLERS AND QUILTS.  THEY SOFTEN
THE ROOM AND GO WELL WITH MY PRIMITIVE
ANTIQUES.  AS YOU CAN SEE I HAVE A BIT
OF A LOG CABIN THEME GOING


THE RUG WITH HUGE CABIN ON THE FLOOR
IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS.
THE DESIGN IS BY LINDA BRANNOCK AND SOLD
BY WOOLY WOOLENS.  



THE QUILTS ON THE RACK I MADE SEVERAL YEARS
AGO FROM PATTERNS BY MY FRIEND 
CAROLE COLLINS OF LADY OF THE LAKE QUILTS.

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY LITTLE BEDROOM TOUR.

UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI

MY GARDEN AREAS......










I CHANGED UP THE GARDEN BEDS IN FRONT
OF OUR HOUSE THIS YEAR.  MOSTLY GARDEN
ART, OLD WATER CANS AND OLD RUSTY THINGS.  THEY 
MAKE MY HEART HAPPY.  A FEW POTS OF FLOWERS
FOR COLOR.  SIMPLE AND EASY FOR ME TO 
CARE FOR.  THE LOG CABIN ON THE PORCH POST
AND HANGING ON THE END OF A FENCE ARE 
NEWLY MADE BY A COUPLE OUT OF OHIO, 
KEVIN AND BONNIE GALLAWAY.  MY FRIENDS
MAREE AND BILL HELPED ME GET THE ONE
ON THE POST AND IN THE GROUND.  I SALVAGED
THE OLD POST FROM MY NEIGHBORS BURN 
PILE A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, HOPING
TO HAVE A BIRDHOUSE ON IT AT SOME POINT.
I’M SO GLAD TO SEE IT COME TO FRUITION! 
SIMPLE SUMMER PLEASURES.

UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI

LITTLE BOOKS.......


ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO 
COLLECT ARE LITTLE LEATHER
COVERED RELIGIOUS BOOKS
FROM THE 1800’s.


THEY ARE FUN TO USE TOGETHER IN
 AN ANTIQUE TOTE OR LITTLE 
WOODEN BOX ABOVE......


OR ON THEIR OWN!
