Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

What Primitive People Do...Part Four

They have extra examples to trade sometimes.

They like paintings of animals.

They sometimes fill cupboards with too much stuff.

They like game boards and will put them on tables, lean them against walls, or hang them on a door.

They put rugs under tables.

Primitive people fill cupboards with crocks and churns.

They put more boxes and containers on the wall than most people would.

They hang Jacquard coverlets from cranes.

They fill grain painted wall cupboards with all sorts of old stuff.

They hang hand dipped candles from grappling hooks suspended from ceiling beams.

Now you know what Primitive People do.
