Thankful for family.




I had a lovely Thanksgiving with my family. It is like Christmas to me, because we can't all get together at Christmas.  We give gifts to the younger ones. We laugh and eat and laugh and eat!!! I have so much to be thankful to God for. I thank him for blessing me with a wonderful family, two jobs that I love, and some wonderful blogging friends. I thank him that my children are such wonderful parents. And I can't be thankful enough that my daughter isn't suffering with pain and sick like she was last year at this time.And of course my three beautiful Gramdbabies, that I live in America, I could go on and on..... And even though we have an empty place at our table ( my brother is no longer with us). I have wonderful memories and know that he is in heaven and I will see him again one day. God is good!

Christmas Decorating





I have been doing some decorating for Christmas today. I have never decorated before Thanksgiving. I like to reverence Thanksgiving first. But with working one job, being on call on another and helping with my Grandson, I thought I better do it while I had a little time. I didn't put near the decorations on the Christmas tree that I usually do, and I like to decorate with snowman, since I can leave them out all Winter.

New Shelf from Sawdusty's Cabin

Here is a photo of a new scoop shelf that I got from Denise at http://www.sawdustys-cabin.com/

Denise is so talented, the new shelf is the one on the left, farmhouse tan, then the black one on the right side

I had gotten several months ago. As you can see all of my shelves are different colors, I have no

color theme, if I like something I get it. Besides I am the queen of my castle and I make the rules. HE HE

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.
