Folk Art and Crafts

The Appalachian cabin of yore was a 16 x 20 foot windowless room decorated with a fireplace at one end, a crudely fashioned table, nail less chairs or puncheon stools, home made candles for light, a spinning wheel for making thread, and maybe a quilting frame, some pottery, and some baskets for gathering vegetables in the garden. A bed frame, "stitched" with taut rope that held a mattress of straw, was a "modern day" convenience that gave us the saying "Sleep tight, and don't let the bed bugs bite." (Probably a bigger summer problem than winter.) Today's cozy homes and cabins are made that more decorative with hand-crafted furniture and accessories from the past. Of course we've put our own finishing touches to yesteryear's improvisations.
