Oh, Just  a mess! A destruction zone with no end in sight any time soon...Every day things disappear and maybe appear somewhere else or not at all...Curtains have come down over the kitchen window and I think it will stay that way for a while until I decide exactly what I want to replace them with...I have things in laundry baskets everywhere undecided on what to do with it and I'm in no hurry...It is refreshing looking at everything with sort of a clean slate.. I just keep stacking things in the laundry baskets and in the hallway....

I'm going to stencil at some point when I decide exactly what stencils i want for each room...Trying to decide if we should paint the gathering room a lighter brown...I like that it is brown and the rest of the walls in the house are white...It sets the gathering room a bit apart from the other rooms..But if we do it will be a lighter brown to make it look brighter in there...This house is so dark....Or Tim suggested maybe a gray...

But we are starting with the laundry room I do know that...More on that room in another post...

But in the meantime, I'm working on some new offerings at night and removing things a bit each day...Some walls are completely bare already...All I know is I want a "simpler" primitive look...I'm definitely not getting rid of my primitive look...

As I got in bed this morning at 5 am Tim says..."Jenny, what happened to the picture over the bed?"..."You better not have sold it"....I had to laugh...Sooo funny as I drifted off to dream world! 


~~Until next time from the homestead! 
hugs, Jen

Your home always looks so nice! I'll be anxious to see how you decide to make some changes!

SO HAPPY you are not changing your style! Too many homes that have inspired me are going to a different style and it bums me out. :( I love the drieds above your kitchen window, simply done!

Oooh taht little pile of quilties is gorgeous...how I would love to rummage through those! ;)

I totally relate to your wanting to "simplify". I used to *cough* hoard prim and country decor until it just got overwhelming. I don't have nearly the amount of things in my home that I used to...but it's still my taste and I have A LOT less dusting!
