Love of country: a barn-style Ohio home
Designed for displays
A blue corner cabinet and adjacent pantry store vintage vessels.
A collection of primitive antiques—bird and dog sculptures, woven baskets, quilts and even a dress form wearing an apron—fills the house like a museum (but one that encourages touching).
“I buy things that make me smile and feel happy when I look at them,” Deb says. She and Ed frequent antiques shows such as the Heartland Antiques Show and the Pure and Simple Show, both in Indiana. The couple’s passion for collecting outgrew their home, so they sell some finds at Jeffrey’s Antique Gallery in nearby Findlay.
