ASHLAND A Greenup woman found a new undertaking through decorating her house.
Cindy Wilson was raising four children and didn’t think about choosing a style for her home.
“Icouldn’t make up my mind and with four children, my house was like a play center all over,”she said. “My friend taught me how to embroider and make things and I just started doing it.”
She said when her children grew up and moved away, she knew she wanted a primitive look in her home.
She said her friends liked her handiwork and encouraged her to make it to sell. Saturday at the Greenup County Extension Office.
Items Wilson said she makes include pillows, quilted items and light switch covers, but there is no limit to where her imaginaton might lead her.
“If I see something and it pops in my head that I can do something with it,I do,”she said, noting she collects buttons, skeleton keys, marbles and other items she can incorporate into primitive decor.
“Everything I sell is handmade,”she said. “A lot of people will buy new things and make them look old. Saturday. The church is at 3132 Haverhill Ohio Furnace Road inIronton. Nov. 10 at the Boyd County Extension Office in Catlettsburg. Hayrides planned; free soup and sandwich dinner.

President Donald J. Trump signed into law tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from several countries. The tariff for steel is 25 percent and 10 percent for aluminum. Trump believes the move will help domestic steel and aluminum producers.
Critics of the move, including Republican leaders like Paul Ryan, fear a trade war could be looming. The European Union has already threatened new tariffs on American exports if Trump’s proposal becomes reality. Trump says trade wars are “good, and easy to win.”
