Well, Hopefully this post will be a little more slow paced than my previous one!
My last one was sort of a jump on and jump off post.
Lately that is all I have been able to accomplish on my blog. Life sure hasn’t slowed down any.
Lets try to relax and enjoy some photos.
I didn’t do as much decorating this year, but I am proud of myself that I actually accomplished some.
Below are some more pictures of Fall 2012 here at the Young’s Homestead.
A few may look like the same shot, but I promise they are different. LOL!
I played around with all of the photos @Befunky.com.
I got this large crock bowl at a local antique store last week.
I love it and I couldn't pass it up for $15.
I have it filled up with dried sunflower heads and tiny gourds.
Below: For some reason I really Love the way this photo turned out. ;)
ABOVE: Pumpkins were swap goodies from Lorna @ Live Oak Primitive Peddler.
BELOW: Handmade cloth leaves were swap goodies from Kimberly @ My Brown Bag Studio.
Orange pumpkin was a swap goody from Char @ The Pickled Pepper Patch.
White pumpkin was a swap goody from Marie @ Primitives By Olde Lady Morgan.
Well, that is pretty much it for the Fall decor this year.
I have a bunch more goodies packed up, but with the house being on the market I wanted to try to keep it somewhat simple this year.
Yes, wish me luck when Christmas rolls around and if the house isn’t sold.
My house at Christmas time usually looks like Santa threw up all over it. LOL!!
*Those are the words my children have used to describe it in the past. :)
I am hoping to find the time soon to get outside and do a little decorating on my porch.

Now for the second part of my post title.
As some of you may know, Karen @ My Colonial Home is hosting a Blog Challenge with a winner!

She has challenged us to make a blog post about, “How You Came Up With The Name Of Your Blog”.
So, here is my entry…
I am afraid there is no cute or funny story behind it.
Basically, it all started with eBay.
Well, way back on Feb 14, 1998 I joined eBay but gave myself just a boring generic name. As I began to sell more and more antique and primitive type items I wanted to change my name to reflect that.
On September 12, 2000, I changed my ID to a*primitive*place, and so it began.
From there, I went on to purchase the web url www.aprimitiveplace.net on May 13, 2004.
I joined a few other selling sites using that name in the past, but no longer sell on them.
So, of course, when I decided to open a blog over three years ago in January of 2009, A Primitive Place was the name that I picked for it.
And there you have it….
The Oh, So Exciting story of my blog name. :)
Karen, I hope you don’t take points away from me for being boring. Heehee!
