My new Basket!

Ann from " 1803 Ohio Farm Baskets"  and I did a swap. She made me one of her long skinny baskets for

my table. I absolutely love it!! She also made me a label that I could attach if I wanted to. I  think I will.

I love sheep, especially since my grandmother used to live on a farm and raise them, I can remember

feeding the little orphan lambs with a bottle, sooooo cute.

  Now I think I am hooked on Ann's baskets. She does such nice work. She also does

demonstrations of her basket making. She is one talented lady, If you don't own one

of Ann's baskets you don't know what you are missing. Thank you Ann, thank you for

swapping and sharing your awesome talent with me.

And one of my awesome arrangements from
Sheila, "Seasons of thy heart"


  1. Love that basket! and your new mouse and the arrangement! So pretty!!!!

    Have a beautiful day!

  12. Hi, I received one of these this week. I ordered Ann one of them and I can not be happier with it. You are correct about her work is wonderful and the basket is gorgeous. I love mine, I think I'll have a new addiction, LOL. Carol's work is with extreme detail, I won a giveaway of her and my snowman is the most beautiful I have ever seen . Hugs, Eve

  13. Hi Lecia,
    for some reason my comment didn't go through this morning! Really love that basket! I'm going to go visit Ann's blog and order one. I've always had a thing for baskets! Yes, you could say I'm a basket case ;-)
    I'm also on a quest for some remnant or runner like you and so many others have on your table. I've looked around here but nothing as usual!
    We're enjoying a beautiful day of sunshine and it's 67. The boys just went home and the house is quiet again.

  14. Just think of all of the fun you will have filling that wonderful basket!

  15. I love these long, skinny baskets. I'm going to have to look into getting one. I have one of her Cherokee comb baskets and I love it!
    Love the mice, as well.
    Have a great weekend!

  16. OH do I love that basket!!!! YOur so so lucky Lecia. Katie

  19. Hi Lecia,
    I dearly love this basket...isn't it fun to do a swap with someone - both get the best of the deal....
    Oh, I am getting one of Carols little sheep - I asked her to make me one today - and I have one of her adorable mousers too.
    Everything is lovely.

  20. Lecia, I love your new basket and Sheila's arrangement.
    I used to make baskets a few years back but now I can't seem to find where to buy the supplies. Looks good on your table.
    Country at heart

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.
