New Pumpkin Guy

I made my first pumpkin doll, for this fall. " BurLee," I used an Olde Homestead Barn pattern,

just love the burlap. He is 22" tall, asking $38.99 plus traveling fee if interested, "Farmhouse Prims"

   I have also been tweaking my kitchen cabinets, I love the black, but I was wondering if it was too

much black, I was thinking of getting new handles for my doors, but just can't afford them right now.

A sweet lady on FB told me about a tutorial she had read about on a blog (wish I knew the name

so I could give the person credit), where you wrap the handles with jute, I thought what have I got

to loose, if I don't like the jute, I can always take it off. It really added something to the cabinets I think.

  Then above my sink I have 2 shelves to display things, I thought what can I do there, I made a

curtain out of a flour sack, I hung it above the shelf  with jute, it looks adorable I think,

thought I would share some photos.

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.
