Surprise in the mail!!!!

Today I was surprised to receive an unexpected package in the mail today from "Lil Raggedy Angie"

and I just cried. I  am a very private person, but have been dealing with some things lately as we all do in life.

I was just having a bad day and here came this unexpected package from Angie.

 She sent me the most gorgeous fabric, any guesses what I might make with it!!! Whatever I make I

might just keep for me. He He And a beautiful notepad and  a everyday blessings book, ( I love books like

this, and it couldn't have came on a better day)!!!

 All I can say is Thank you Angie, I wish I could give you a big hug in person, I love you girl,

I truly love my blogging friends, what would I do without you.  You have such a sweet, kind heart Angie,

and thank you for thinking of me. Your kindness is amazing!!!

What is wrapped up here, I love the notepad and book, and the outhouse card. I have used a couple of them in my time. He He

Ahhhh, the most gorgeous fabric!!!
It sure has that old timey look to it, right up my alley. he he

I wish my area sold some beautiful fabric like this,
It is so pretty!!!! I love, love it!!! Thank you so much Angie!!!!

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.
