We, as humans, are constantly striving for perfection of which we will never attain in this life. Primitives strive for that bit of imperfection. They are never quite perfect and that is a good thing! That is part of their charm.
I love making primitives for that reason. I don't have to worry about being perfect. I made some awesome grubby candles this weekend. They are up for sale in my Etsy shop. Grubby candles are great for that early lighting look. My Grubbiest Grunge Dusted candles truly look 100 years old. They are 3rd from the right at top of picture. How cool is that?!
