Hardworking, reclaimed vintage farm goods, down to earth charm...that is Farmhouse Style to me. It is an egg basket filled with gardening supplies, an ironstone bowl overflowing with old wooden clothespins, even a chicken in the house (wink). There is nothing pretentious about this style...it is sun on your shoulders, dirt under your nails, straw in your pockets & joy found in the every day routine of life. From aprons to blue Ball jars to chippy farm cupboards to well loved quilts...this style has "home" within it.
Today I was on a mission at the Elko Flea Market in Minnesota....I could only purchase items that met these qualities. It didn't take long to fill my arms -- with multiple trips to the car! I hope to start in on my booth redo at the Hixton Schoolhouse Antique Mall soon, and will share when done. Farmhouse Style is what I have finally come home to.
