Look what I received in the mail today!!!

I was so excited to arrive home from work and have this package waiting on my door step for me.

Traci, from York Mountain Primitives and I decided to do a swap. I had asked her if she could make me one

of her beautiful summer time wreaths. Wow, was I ever surprised when I opened the package, this wreath is

absolutely stunning. It is full of garden veggies and has two of the cutest crows on it. 


I had to put it on my door right away!!! Isn't it gorgeous!!!! Those veggies look good enough to eat!!!

This really touched my heart a flicker light candle
with Farmhouse Prims on it, I love it Traci!!! This is so special!!!

You talk about an awesome prim candle mat, look at the penny rugs and 1851 tag!!!!  It is prim perfect!!!

The cutest crow pillow and wooden board with stitchery and bumble bee attached!!! I love them Traci!!!

The wreath was way to much, I love each and everything Traci, but when I read her card about this bear, it brought tears to my eyes, but happy tears.
This is one of Traci's bears, and does she every make wonderful bears, she named this one, "Darwin", it's an Old English name for "dear friend"!!!!!


Traci is a wonderful, talented lady, you need to check out her blog and website.
And she is one of the sweetest persons that I have ever met, I feel a special bond between us. I guess you would call it, Kindred Spirits!!!
Thank you Traci for everything, you really spoiled me, and I will treasure your goodies forever!!!
Blogging friends are the best, and Traci you will be a friend for life!!!!!!

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.
