than buy a new "reproduction" of one.
My house is full of "old-fashioned" things that many might turn their nose up at, but to me, all those things are beautiful.
They represent ME. Call me old-fashioned I guess, and don't get me wrong, I'll follow a trend like anyone else, but only if it's a good one. You won't catch me sportin' legwarmers just because someone in Hollywood is.
You'll most often find me with my rubber boots on in the garden or flowerbed.
I'll continue to make my own jam, and freeze and can vegetables and fruit. I'll continue to grow a large garden and hang up my clothes on the clothesline my husband put up one year for me for Mother's day.
I'll hang up a framed box top of my favorite childhood art supplies
and use old pharmacy containers for purposes other than what they're intended for.
I will be a "vintage country girl" even when it may no longer be cool. I am what I am. And I like it that way.
Tonight I'm linking up to Verde Farm's farm friend/Farmgirl friday party. Come and join me.
