I have to share a funny story with you all. My mom and I were out shopping the other day and went into this little shop. A very nice older gentleman was tending the store for his wife. As we were looking around, he informed us, “My wife called and said to mark down all the Primitive dolls half price. To me, primitive means ugly, so I just went around and marked down all the ugly things.”
I had to smile to myself because as you know, some people just don’t get “primitive” and they either like it or they don’t.
When checking out, he was making out my ticket trying to write down what I had bought and with a puzzled but serious look on his face he said to me, “I don’t know what you’d call that thing… maybe you do?” Every time I think about it, I just burst out laughing.
Although he wasn’t impressed with my purchases, I sure am. I love my grubby little gingerbread man tied on to a tea stained red ticking candy cane and…

Yes, I suppose what appeals to me, to some, may most certainly appear strange to them. But given the choice over the newest sparkling glassware or an old door knob topped with a snowman head, you can bet your fanciest overalls, I’m gonna go with the door knob!
