Farmhouse weekend and Christmas gift!!



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???
  Awhile ago Marie , from http://primitivesbyoldeladymorgan.blogspot.com/  and I had a swap, don't you just love my candle display on the beautiful candle mat that she gave me!!!
New quilt given to me by my mom!!!
From Family Heirloom Weavers...

Old wood cookstove and enamel table...
breadbox and toaster cover....
Old Sign collection....

 We relaxed, ate, read, laughed and she helped me carry the tubs upstairs to the bathroom!!!! A much needed time of relaxation for us both!!

  4. I love your view. You must see lots of fantastic wildlife.
    Your knotty pine is an all time favorite of both hubby and me.
    In fact, your home is very beautiful.
    I would love to have a bathroom big enough to use a double tub for storage. I can't even fit in a single. *sigh* But I will have it on our patio with plants in it!

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.
