The Simple Life

A stroll into
Wood Mist Forest

As morning twilight streaks ever so slightly thru the dense thickets of trees
 my forest takes on a magical misty glow of fog like shadows.


Dampness settles on aging branches,
 nourishing them as a mother would her young.


A faint scent of wood mist rises into the still of the air.


Wood mist, 
a woodsy enticing scent reaching into every inch of your being,
captivating the soul, tantalizing the spirit.  


Oh how I cherish this twilight time,
when night's dark softness rolls over, bids farewell,
 and welcomes mornings ray. 


Mornings rays engulfing Woodmist Hideout

Welcome to a little cabin in the big woods.

Shall we take a quick peek,

 of course my door is always open
please step inside.

Oh look at this quaint kitchen,
except for the "white" gas fridge, better than
cold storage in the hill side.

Chippy Sellars cabinet top with rusty panel doors. 
Behind the rusty panels are the original cream color
chippy doors with faded painted flowers.
I did not have the heart to paint over them.
Distressed cream plate cabinet and sink cabinet
were made by a local primitive craftsman.
Love my double drain board sink,
had it in storage for 12 years!!


Absolute favorite "Antique  Stove"

Make do cabinet - second try
 Make do cabinet - first try
Make do cabinet - third try is a charm.

This barn wood cabinet was purchased 20 years ago,
my first primitive piece,
how fitting it should have a new home.

Serene simplicity

Primitive jelly cabinet was hand made by Mr B for our Colorado Cabin

You already know Miss Blair, the overseer at
Woodmist Hideout.

Oh look, here is Annie from Colorado,
she is settling in rather nicely, playing hide and seek today.
Look at that chippy stair railing taken from a 100 year old house!

Where did the time go, the gas lights are lite, dusk is upon us.
Please come back and visit again.

Maybe we will go upstairs and see who lingers there.

Or meander into the necessary room!!!

A Simple Life,
keeping it simple was my goal.
Primitive on the inside
maintenance free on the outside.
The best of both world's.

This evening a full moon looms over my forest.
Peaceful dark of night,
with just a touch of God's wondrous light.

Introducing Miss Blair

Miss Blair
Miss Blair is the overseer at 
Woodmist Hideout, aka Ozark Cabin.
She will go out of her way to make sure your 
visit is " primly perfect." 
Don't let her stern appearance fool you, 
she is as sweet as the tea she serves you
 from her pewter teapot.
Miss Blair came highly recommended  from Dru Ann,
creator of the Kinfolk Collection.
Dru Ann is a talented artist, you can find her awesome creations
over at her blog A Fine Farmhouse
stop bye for a visit and tell her Connie sent you.

Seven months in the making
Woodmist Hideout is nearing completion.
I will be sharing pics soon, 
hoping not to bore you with construction details.
I am still putting on the primitive touches we all love.
Primitive verses Maintenance Free
"compromise and move on"....
words I repeated many times these past seven months.

Just a sneak peak....
