A lot of us are just one generation removed from farm life at most. Maybe that's why there is such a romantic association with farmhouse living.
It's not for everyone. But fortunately you don't have to actually live on a farm to appreciate its virtues.
Like this planter made of old metal and garden wire.
And a rusty old metal stool.
The wash on the line.
I can hardly hang a thing without remembering my favorite farmhouse movie character. . . .
Edna Spaulding of Places in the Heart.
Old blue canning jars.
The life barely distinguishes between the inside and out. It's back and forth all day long.
There are the fineries, like lace curtains at the window.
And the kitchen utilities.
Potholders and dishtowels handmade right alongside the pies.
Nothing like a farm fresh egg!
Farm things are about simple living, and simple pleasures. Finding beauty in the ordinary. And while we can't all live on a farm, it's easy enough to get in touch with our farmhouse dreams.
How about you?
Ciao! for now!
