… at least, that’s what she calls it. Some people refer to these timeworn treasures as primitive or rustic antiques. Not Carol. She calls her decor “crappy-style” in an affectionate way that speaks volumes about her adoration for days gone by. Carol likes well worn, purposeful items. And they can’t have any shine.
No shiners here, baby.
Grubby old farm implements, one-of-a-kind crocks, Sweet Annie wreaths and tea-stained ticking pillows … the only creature comforts this genuine farm girl needs.
I have table envy. Carol did too —that’s how this sweet little piece ended up in her kitchen.
Have you met Carol? If you’ve been to FARMGIRL FINDS you may have — or at the very least, you’ve encountered Carol’s treasures. She’s my main source for crappy items. Carol scours the countryside looking for primitive perfection every week. And every week, you can discover her newest finds at FARMGIRL FINDS . Because this farm girl loves Carol’s crappy crap as much as my customers. And when they’re in my shop, I get to live with them for a little while!
You know what? Carol doesn’t just live with this stuff, she uses it.
In fact, this is the table Carol’s family sits around on Thanksgiving Day. Can you imagine eating your turkey and trimmings in such primitive splendor?
Oh, now, don’t fret! I took a close-up for ya!
I have many more photos of Carol’s home. I couldn’t stop myself. It’s breathtaking in a crappy sort of way! You can experience Carol’s decorating drama in your own home … stop by FARMGIRL FINDS for new primitives every week.
And don’t miss a truly grand reopening — with coffee and donuts — on Saturday, June 20 at 9 a.m. The shop is now located on State Route 9 in Augusta, beside Manfull Orchards Farm Market. Get there early for best selection!
