Today I went to my first craft show for this fall season, I just love the atmosphere and the beautiful colors for fall that are displayed and the vendors with apple dumplings and fall goodies. Here is a picture of my scarecrow, isn't he cute!
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.
Alright, this is a first etsy listings for me. I have worked for hours and hours trying to list things on etsy. I took nice photo's and was in the middle of listing and my photo's were tooo large and wouldn't go through.(And I didn't know how to make them smaller). HELP< despiration>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I could have cried. So I listed the best way that I could. Please check out my etsy and here are some of the photo's that I was going to list on etsy. They really are nice photo's compared to what I could list. P.S. An uupdate, I received some emails to help me, I have it figured out a little better. Thanks to all my prim friends.

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.
