More Prim Lights and What Moves You?
Last time I shared a few of my prim lighting. It seems lighting is important in Prim decorating. I love lamps and have them everywhere. You know I like candles too and am absolutely in love with the battery candles on a timer. They look wonderful in your chandeliers that are not electrified, and they come on automatically. I'll get a picture when mine come on next time and show you.
Remember Picket over at Pickets Place and her What Moves You? I did it last time and want to do it again. I have to give you a little background first.(of course I would lol) How many of you had someone in your life, other than Mother or Grandmother who influenced you? I was lucky, because I had Ila. She was my Mothers first cousin's wife. She was 10 years older than me, but lessons she taught me over the years have been valuable. She taught me to peel my first potato, biting her tongue as it whittled away to nothing.I had never peeled a potato before! She was the mother of triplett boys and a daughter. When you are 14 and 24, 10 years are a lot. When you are 24 and 34 , they are nothing. We became very close and remained that way until her death in 2001. Any way we both loved antiques and I wanted a coffee grinder. I had 3 young children and the budget didn't allow it. One visit, (they lived in Ohio, we lived in Tennessee,) when she got out of the car, in her hands was a coffee grinder! YES! I was so excited I grabbed it and ran into the house!! Leaving them standing outside laughing so hard they couldn't see. Whenever I see this coffee grinder, it moves me!
Thank you for coming Through My Back Door today, where life is good.
The devastation through out the south has been heart breaking. I didn't do this post today out of insensitivity to those who have lost everything. I did it to maybe brighten someones day. As I have said before, Prim lovers know what is important and have our priorities in order.We know it is not things.
Picket we are all so thankful you and your family is okay, there in Tuscaloosa.
