My name is Suzy and I am a primitive folk artist whose first love has become the creation of all things primitive.I just love to create and let my art take on its own personality. I live in Maine with my wonderful husband,Rob,and together we have 4 grown children, 4 grandchildren, and our wonderful youngest son,Ben,who is 10 and very active. However.. he has been known from time to time to be right beside Mom working in the studio!
Good Morning all... Life sure has been busy here at the Millhouse... I decided it was time to reorganize and redo my kitchen...need more room and less clutter...trying to go back to the simpler thymes.. hopefully making life a little less hectic...of course, I pick the hottest days of the summer to do that! It's almost done and I will share some pictures soon, I promise!!! Just doing some much needed computer work this morning while Ben is still snoozing away...and I was just looking at some really cool old pictures on my computer that Rob's cousin and my dearest friend, Barbara, shared with us... I just love looking at old pictures and thinking how simple life was back then.... Obviously, procrastinating on the tasks that need to be done...but I came across this really neat picture of Robs great-grandparents, Fred and Lottie Young, taken sometime between the mid to late 1800's... I just love it... maybe its her apron( aprons are an addiction to me), maybe its the hard work but simple life that their faces show... or maybe its just because they are family.. What do you think? Well.. I guess I better get my work done.. because Ben will be up soon and there will be lots of kids in the yard playing and enjoying a lazy summer day! I love to listen to their chatter and laughter as I know all too well... that soon he will be all grown up and leave the nest.... Until next time, Suzy
