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 One... I walked around my house making pictures....

Primitive People agree that children's chairs aren't just for children any more.

Primitive People don't think old portraits are spookly.

They wish Staffordshire dishes were still the rage.

They believe tea boxes under tin lights are a little glimpse of heaven.

They know that one can never stack books too high.

  3. We are now followers. You are so blessed to live in an ancestral log home in the South. Your furniture and accessories are a wonderful collection of primitive, just the things we love.
