I have this affinity to old things. I love primitive, grungy furniture. Square nails set my heart a flutter. 100 year old pine is close to my soul. I have been collecting old furniture for about 20 years and have some family pieces in my trove of treasures. Bead board cupboards and dovetailed edges are top notch in my world. I have several collections; old crocks, grain scoops, wooden buckets, dough troughs, and pewter. I recently went to an antique sale and acquired this old cupboard that is perfect for the top of my counter. It is up for debate as to whether I was born in the wrong century or if I am just fond of the way antiques seem to be reminiscent of bygone days.
