MY BROTHERS PLACE

If you haven't already done so - please sign up for TODAY'S PRIMITIVE HOME NEWSLETTER...I have a pretty good article running this month....here's the link: http://www.todaysprimitivehome.com/

Last weekend while we were at my brothers I took a few picture of the interior - notice all the snow? Well, there wasn't that much when we were there but they certainly did have more on the ground than we do here - they live north of us by 3 hours in the area all of us call 'up north'!

Thier all brick home sits on 5 absolutely gorgeous acres. Gene has worked so hard clearing the land , replanting trees and making it the most peaceful place I've ever seen....while Gail makes the inside just as comfortable.

I thought I'd share a few pictures of their place
The first two speak for themselves




One day a couple years ago we all went shopping and Gail saw this great wall shelf but the price was way over the top so Gene came home and built her one - it looks just like the store one (but better). Hard to judge size in the picture but it is approx. 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 and it hangs on the open stairway wall leading down to the basement.


Sofa in living room - we have the same one


Loveseat in same room


Basket on French doors leading to entry


Top of cupboard in dining room


Neat bucket with pretties!


Corner cupboard in dining room

Thanks for visiting

  7. What a beautiful place! We vacationed a couple of summers when I was younger in northern Wisconsin...a place called Three Rivers. Beautiful country up there.
    I love the decor, and the setting is gorgeous!
