Happy New Year

I want to wish all of my blogger friends a happy and blessed New Year. I am so fortunate to

have met so many wonderful friends through blogging and cherish each and every friendship.

I love Christmas and am usually on vacation until after the holidays, so I try to have most of my

Christmas decor taken down and put away so that I can be ready to get back to work and

in the swing of things .But it is always a little depressing and sad to put it all

away. Next Monday my mom is finally having surgery on her arm, can you

believe that her arm has just been hanging for 9 months. I knew it wouldn't heal on it's own,

how can something heal if the bone isn't even touching together. Well it will be a big surgery

with bone grafts, plates and screws. Please keep her in your prayers for a complete recovery

and successful surgery.

 I put most of my decor away but do leave out a few snowmen and I just didn't have the heart

to put away some of my Christmas pin keeps, I have enjoyed them so much.

My daughter got me a gift cert. from a local primitive store, I got some woolfelt and a yard

of reproduction fabic with my cert. I love to wash the woolfelt and dry it in a dryer, I love the

nubby feel of the wool. I need to have some projects while I am setting at the hospital with mom.

I am going to make some new penny rugs. And  the yard of fabric, even on sale it was $8.00,

so I am thinking of maybe making another primitive prairie doll  and use the fabric for her dress.

It has to be something very special. I am still thinking. he he

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!

I love decorating my hoosier for the different seasons, I got this snowgirl from
Sandra, "Country at Heart", I just love her, she was a special request order.
She made her just the way I was wanting!
The hanging sheep ornie I just love was made by Karen of "My Colonial Home" I was lucky enough
to win one of Karens giveaways, along with a Pumpkin Jack penny rug candle mat.
The basket on top of my hoosier was made by Ann "Ohio Farm Baskets" 
I love Ann's baskets, her and I had done a swap, and I made the Santa and Snowmen inside the basket.

Candle called "Christmas Eve", is awesome made byBrandy "The Little Prim Cabin"

Sleigh sampler and pin keep made by
Brenda of "Pine Tree Prims"

Jean "Prim Crafts" and Noel pinkeep , a swap gift from

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.
