Primitive decorating is a feeling of warmth and simplicity. It speaks to our very soul and brings us back to a time of quiet, uncomplicated living.

|Another rustic church - loved the stone-like exterior and blue doors.|
|We saw lots of benches and chairs i|
|I loved the shutters on this mirror (and table underneath) - what a charming look!|
Another great visit to the market and no purchases - sometimes that is a good thing!
