Some new things I have been working on.

I recently made a Primitive Prairie Stocking, I was inspired by a pattern by "Sweetmeadows Farm".

 I used coverlet fabric for the stocking. The stocking is approx. 19" long.

I am asking $32.99 plus traveling fee. Only one available.

Email me if interested

Next I have a set of dollhouse dolls. inspired by Norma Schneeman dolls,

The dolls are small Mamma approx. 10" and daughter approx. 8" tall. Asking $32.99 plus traveling fee for

the set. One set available.

Remember a few months ago I painted my kitchen cabinets black and put down new flooring,

Well it was too much black with with old cabinet handles. I wrapped them in jute for a twist,

which really perked them up. I had went into a habitat for humanity store and found some

really cute white knobs for less that $10.00 for all of the cabinets, I am attaching a before

and after picture, really love the new knobs.


  1. What a difference those knobs it really perked the cupboard up.
    Everything looks so pretty. Your new dolls and the stocking are beautiful...great work.

  2. I love how the new knobs stand out. I used white porcelain knobs on my desk. It is such a dramatic difference.
    Love your new flooring, too.
    Merry Christmas, my friend.

  3. Excellent switch on the cabinet knobs. Looks great :) I'm working up the energy and nerve to paint our kitchen cabinets and get new handles.
    You're really an excellent doll maker and the stocking is primtastic.

  4. Wonderful new creations!Love how the new knobs look on the cabinets.Hugs,Jen

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.
