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!
Time just never slows down here at the Mill House~ Fall always seems to be a busy time~Ben going back to school~ apple picking~trips to the pumpkin patch~fall decorating~preparing the gardens for the long Maine winters~

Well~ Labor Day has come and gone! Rob is back to work and Ben is back to school~ the only sounds I hear now is the music playing softly~washer and dryer doing their job~ and the dog whimpering cause he just watched the Ben walk off to school! We had a busy weekend here at the Mill House~ saw some old friends, lots of playing time, ripped out some old carpets, and I redid my Etsy shoppe finally! It was one of those things that I kept saying~I'll get to it~ but I never did~ so I FINALLY DID IT! I am also proud to know be a part of the Old Farmhouse Gathering group on Etsy~ what a wonderfully talented group of artists~ I can't wait to meet more of them~ Please do stop by and look around~ Well~ I must get busy now~ the studio has now taken over two rooms of the house instead of one~ the office has been turned into just that~ my office and Ben's music room~ he will be starting piano lessons very soon~ My parents bought him this beautiful antique piano last spring~ and he is very excited~ So~ I need to do some more reorganizing in the studio part~ and then out to the deck to do some hooking and enjoying these last great days of summer~ Until next time, Suzy
Another August is gone~ but September 1 brings some new and exciting things at the Mill House~ I have joined two very talented groups of artisans in the primitive folk art world~ Simply Primitives and The Primitive Gatherings.

Well, Ben starts Jr High tomorrow ~ I'm so not ready for my baby to grow up~ but as we all know~ they do~ So I'm off to enjoy the final day of summer with my baby before he starts school~ Until next time, Suzy
