Since we have gotten snow my business has been slow so I have been making some bonnets. I am making a longer length, which I really like. I made two really heavily grunged bonnets and the others are lightly coffee stained. How do you prefer your bonnets, lightly primmed, heavily primmed or not primed at at???
This weekend my BF Shelia and I went to our farmhouse in WV. I have been wanting to show off my Christmas gift from my hubby. It was a two sided wash tub set for the farmhouse. I was so excited. I wanted one of these so bad for our upstairs bathroom to store towels and wash cloths in. So what do you think???

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.
