New Sofa Cover and Chair Rail

After.....................Before.....................
I have been wanting a new sofa cover for along time, but just couldn't see paying $100.00 for one. I found this one on clearance at Walmart for $45.00. And my son put up my chair Rail up for me. I am so proud. It is amazing what a piece of wood can do for a room.

Gooseberry Patch

Gooseberry Patch


As most of you already know, I am a huge fan of "Gooseberry Patch", I think I own all of their spiral cookbooks and even have two which are signed by them. I sell them in my hair salon.

They share wallpaper (desktop), backgrounds for your computer. They are sharing some beautiful ones for fall. I thought you may enjoy them too!!!

About Me

My photo
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.
