Making Christmas Gifts!!!
Finances are tough this year at my house, like it probably is with most of us with the economy. So I have decided to make some of my gifts. Here are a few pictures. I enjoy making Christmas gifts. I made my Grandmothers gifts for Christmas when I was a little girl, because I didn't have money to buy them things. I remember one year in 7th. grade making my one Grandmother a set of pillows in home ec. class.
She must have really liked them, because she would only put them on her sofa on Sundays and then she would put them back in a plastic bag and store them until the following Sun.
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
