Weekend Getaway









 This weekend one of my friends and I spent the weekend at our farmhouse in WV.

We just relaxed, went to a few thrift and antique shops and rode around in the country

and just enjoyed  the beauty of the fall season. We also talked and  laughed alot.

It was a real nice girls weekend.   I also worked on a pennyrug, the pattern

I used was from Karen, "My Colonial Home" .  I love her patterns.  The pattern didn't call

for buttons, but I decided to add them to the tree. Love how it turned out.

  7. Oh how I wish I could have joined you gals at the farmhouse, it all looks so peaceful and relaxing. I love it that your dad's old 2 room schoolhouse still stands today, too many are torn down these days.

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.
