More Bonnets!!!

Whoo have I been sewing up a storm, I am trying to get stocked up on my bonnets, since

school has started again. All of my bonnets are $20.99 plus traveling fee, contact me if interested.

Lecia  Many of my fabrics are one of a kind, a few I do have extra fabric for others.

This style of bonnet is approx. 26" long, it is inspired by a "Drakestone Primitive" pattern,
which I made longer and changed the ties.

Decorating for Fall

I have been doing a little decorating for fall, thought I would share some pictures.

I have also added some items to my selling blog if you would like to check that out.

I love fall, love the beautiful colors the crisp fall nights, hayrides, pumpkins, apples,

apple cider, mum, the beautiful leaves, scarecrows, candy corn, I could just go on and on.

 Many of my wonderful blogger friends have helped to decorate my house, and some of the

things I made myself. I think of each one of you when I look at your wonderful creations!

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.

Vacation

    Last week, my husband and I and our two children and three grandchildren, along with my Son in Law,

his sister and parents rented a beach house in Myrtle Beach, S C. We had the most wonderful time

We ate alot of good food, played alot with the grandbabies and talked and laughed alot.

  My SIL has the most wonderful family, we just enjoyed their company so much.

I took a few pictures and then my camera bit the dust. I thought it needed new batteries, but

it is broken. I will share a few photo's, sure wish I had some of my SIL family.

I was also able to finish two fall stitcheries.  I am starting to think of fall, and am thinking what am

I going to make next??????

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.
