Surprise in the mail and a winning!

Today I received a sweet surprise in the mail from one of my awesome prim friends Sheila, "Seasons of thy heart" . Sheila is one of the sweetest persons that I know and has a heart of gold. Not to mention the wonderful arrangements that she makes. If you don't own one of Shelia's arrangements you don't know what you are missing.
  We were both friends with Jan of "Black Creek Primitives"  , Jan recently passed away suddenly, such
a tragedy. She was such a wonderful lady and talented crafter.
  Sheila had used many of Jan's prims for her arrangements, and knew that Jan was also special to me.
She sent me a surprise package today with a pear/crow arrangement and pantry cakes made by Jan,
and do they ever smell yummy.
She also sent a pin keep and towel, Sheila made the pin keep and it is awesome.
What a wonderful surprise from a wonderful prim friend, it made me get tears in my eyes, to have
something of Jan's and also some wonderful things of Sheila's, thank you Sheila you are the sweetest!!!!!

And Becky, "Primitive N Stitchin"  had a giveaway, she was giving away prim valentines to the first five
bloggers who left comments, I was lucky enough to be number five. I love this valentine, prim perfect,
thank you Becky.

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.
