    I think it's seadream on here that is really into it and has a blog. Speaking of seadream--where is she and has her bundle of joy arrived yet?

    I use to buy & sell antiques and primitives were my favorite! My family used to make fun of me . I love the textures and feel of primitives, they remind me of a much simpler time.

    My home is almost 100 years old and is mission-style. I don't have a lot of space (and I hate clutter) so I've sold most of my stuff. But I have a few favorites I'll never part with!

    How can you help out with decorating? Are primitive antiques a passion of yours? I'd love to see photos!!!

    I LOVE primitives, or, as my family calls it, "beat up old junk".

    My style is primitive (I call it prarie.....) anyway, I hate clutter with a passion, so there is not alot of "stuff" to define my style, it;s mostly furniture choices. Like a wide board farm table with benches, and mixes woods (antique white, "battered black", and oak) all in the same room....my bedroom furniture is mission......I say my style would best be described as this:
    I want all my stuff to look like an Amish man made it in his barn. I like things to look "rough". My new home has a white pillar inside, kinda dividing the dining room and family room. When we redo the floor, I am replacing it with a rough hewn timber...

    i used to make primitives. i know quite a few people who make furniture, candles, dolls, and all sorts of primitive decorating items.

    i love that style myself, but dh is not into it. but we do have a few primitives in the house. i told him when we get our dreamhouse - the one in the country, then i am doing it how i want and if he doesn't like it, well, he can stay out in the barn!

    Cricket, I'm still here and no, our bundle of joy has not arrived yet. We are currently #5 on the list so we are getting closer to that time.

    Anyway I love primitives and my whole house is decorated in country prim, I am slowing making it more prim instead of country, but at a slow pace as I will not pay some of the prices people want for their items. I can usually find it cheaper at yard sales, etc and will just wait.

    Check out my blog for pictures of my home and prim items I have made.

    I love , love , love prim. I am slowly transforming the house. we moved in about a year and a half ago and since then I have been working one room at a time but I have such a tiny budget its going to take me forever.

    Just a few weeks ago I have my dh remove the mirrored wall in the dinning room ( so not prim) and we put up real wood and painted in in a nice pine green. The wood was of poor quality so it was nice and beat up.

    What would you say is the most important thing a prim decorator should do?

    don't spend a lot of money.

    if you are crafty, then you can make a lot of things. even if you aren't, then you can still make a lot of things, you just need to learn how!
    that's the beauty of them. they don't need to look perfect.

    i can help you a lot with making things. and to make them, does not require a lot of knowledge. you just make what you like!

    go trash digging! really, you can get all sorts of things that people throw away because they are redoing their house.
    go to thrift stores or yard sales looking for old furniture.

    making a lot of things yourself is real easy! just browse sites that specialize in primitives. if you find something that you like, then use things you have on hand to duplicate or as close to and viola`!
