~The Joy of Collecting! A Photo Shoot Sneak Peek.~

Last Saturday, Kimberlee and I traveled to the small town of Lebanon, Illinois to do a photo shoot for an upcoming issue of A Primitive Place magazine.  

The homeowner's name is Joy and it was certainly a joy filled day at her home on Saturday.  I knew that Joy was an avid collector, but I was not prepared for what I saw when she opened her door and let me in.  I have never seen so many collections in one place.  You name an item and Joy has it!  Her home is a primitive dream come true in every way.  All I could think as I walked through her home was, "I want that, and that, and that, oh, and that!"  

Here is just a small sampling of some of Joy's awe inspiring collections.   

If these pictures leave you wanting more, I just have one suggestion.  Order a subscription to the best magazine on the market.  To subscribe, click ~here~.

Thank you for visiting A Primitive Place.  We appreciate you stopping by and hope you will come back as often as possible.
