A primitive homestead tour.....

I'm not going to write much because really, these pictures pretty much make me speechless, but what I will tell you is that I was getting worried that I wasn't going to find any good primitive places to visit here in Missouri.  I knew they were here because I've been to this state before.  Well, my mother and I found a wonderful primitive Antique shop with a very friendly owner named Dee.  To make things short, we now have a tiny booth in her store, come back to see pictures in a day or two.  And, she told us about her friend Denine who was having an Antique show that we just had to attend if we loved antiques.  This is what we witnessed..................

I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing this place and these people were.  Denine and here husband were so friendly.  They had a pot of chili, some hot dogs and cookies for everyone........for free.  They were obviously gracious enough to let me go crazy with photographs.  
This is not a museum, they are just serious collectors who love the simple life.  These cabins were all relatively new.  The main cabin had all the comforts of a modern home, tv, computer, AC.  
It was truly an amazing tour and yes, we did indulge in the shop a bit too!!  I thought you'd all enjoy seeing it.  It was in Dixon, MO.
Until next time...............

About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
