So yes, I am still a little MIA from Blogland. I just need to concentrate on quilting for a little longer to make some upcoming deadlines, then you should see me a little more....hopefully. :-) I thought I would share how I decorated with my goodies that I brought home recently. While I love primitives, I don't like a cluttered look. Nor do I like a "dark" look. I love antiques. I would pick an antique over a piece of reproduction furniture that has been painted to look old given the choice. Not always, but most of the time. I'll start with the kitchen. I wanted to change out my roosters that were above my cabinets. I was accumulating a few too many and they were looking a little too cutesy for me.
