Mr. Jack!

I was thrilled to find out that I was one of the winners of Karen "My Colonial Home"  giveaway,

Karen makes the most wonderful penny rugs and also has penny rug patterns to sell. I was thrilled to

find out that I had won one of her wonderful penny rugs, wow, does Karen do nice work,

her stitching is perfect. I love Mr. Jack, and not only did she send me a penny rug,

but a beautiful sheep pillow, I really love both items. Thank you Karen for sharing your

awesome talent and for hosting a wonderful giveaway!!!!!  Go over to Karens blog

and look at all of her lovely penny rugs. She has a lovely blog!!! Her beautiful home

has also been featured in "Country Sampler" magazine, she is quite the decorator and

such a sweetie!!!


  1. Congrats on your win! They are both very nice!
    Be blessed,

  2. Lecia you lucky girl! I've admired Karen's work since beginning my blog......still don't own one of them though, and I agree she is very talented and I've enjoyed the photos of her home too.
    Hope you are doing well this Monday. I've got quite a list of errands and such for today, as well as taking my MIL to do hers if she's up to it. Tom will be cleaning out her little flower bed and helping me with some of her inside housework too. It never ends!
    Take care.
    Blessings & hugs,

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.
