A Primitive Place Premier Issue

I have been very busy the past few weeks but in between everything that has been going on I have been looking and reading and looking at my first issue of A Primitive Place magazine. I am truly happy with my decision to subscribe. It may be a magazine but to me it is more like a book. There are so many lovely homes featured in this issue that have one or more feature in them that I have been dreaming of having here at the homestead. To find the article on peg boards was an added surprise considering that is the latest item being added to the homestead these days. Mine is a bit different than the peg boards in the earlier times since it has a quilt rack and plate rack being incorporated into the peg board.

I do not like to see appliances since it takes away from the old fashioned looks of a kitchen. To see the custom built cabinet to hide and house the frig was a surprise to. I so much want one someday to hide and house my frig too.

I have been dreaming of remove a 6 foot wall in the kitchen that goes into a very small room behind it where I would love to have a walk in pantry with lots of shelves for canned goods. My thought is to also have a long narrow wood farm table in the center where I could put my sewing machine cabinet and sewing machine. So the article on the buttery - pantry was a surprise to.

This issue was packed with so much that hit home for me and the photos were beautiful. I am so much looking forward to my next issue. This magazine is a must have.

Blessings Til Next Time!
