Hello there...

Our hostess this week at Our Beautiful World is Wendy
And the prompt she has chosen this week is

  1. of or relating to the countryside; rural.
  2. made in a plain and simple fashion, in particular:
  1. an unsophisticated country person.
  2. a small brownish European moth.

You all know I love to 'dress' things up from time to time ... but there are certain things in my home that have their own Rustic charm ... plain and simple

... a few rough edges and lines of natural character

A little of the outside to grace the inside

I've spent a few holidays in simple cabins in the heart of woodlands ... just me my husband and my dog 

... and I've seen a little of the Rustic life in Norway

The thing that amazed my about this cabin that was so high up in the snow covered mountains, was how it was supported ... 

... simple logs placed underneath it ... I guess it works

My maternal grandmother was Swiss ... she lived a Rustic life in the mountains until she came to the city of London ... a complete contrast where she was surrounded in modern day life ... but amongst the glamour and glitz stood the biggest Rustic dresser which she kept until the day she died ... every room revealed something of the simple life she left behind ... hand knitted blankets and shawls in every hue that sometimes looked out of place... Even the food she cooked was wholesome 'peasant food' as she called it ... And these have remained my favourites
