My first attempt at making a scarecrow and a surprise in the mail

The first of the year I bought 10 patterns from Tennessee Ridge Primitives, they have just been laying around.

I just thought I would never be able to make them. Well this is my first ever scarecrow and I am

pretty darn proud of how he turned out. He He

I also see that I now have 250 followers, it is time for me to think of what to have for a giveaway.

I will be having a 250 follower giveaway in a few days, so check back.

  I also received a cute surprise in the mail today, that sweet Cyndy, "Crafty Stitchers"   sent

me the cutest snowman ornament. I love snowmen and this ornament is soooo cute. Cyndy

is such an awesome crafter, check out her blog and a wonderful prim friend. Thanks Cyndy!!!

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.
