Uncle Sam!!!

Mandy from "Bittersweet Folk Art", and I decided to do our own swap.

She gave me one of her " Uncle Sam"  dolls and a Primitive Star that matches his clothes!

I have never owned an "Uncle Sam" doll,
You talk about nice, I am just in love with him!!! He is totally adorable.

Doesn't he look great with my, "Americana Display"!

Mandy you have outdid yourself, I have to have the best "Uncle Sam" doll ever!!
Mandy is one talented lady, and there is an article about her and her work, in the summer issue
of "Merchantile Gatherings" magazine. You have to check that out!

I am thrilled to own one of Mandy's dolls, you have to check out her blog, everyone needs one
of her dolls, you are in for a treat!!!

Thank you so much Mandy for swapping, I love, love my doll!!! I will treasure him forever!!!

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.
