Gatherings

I love prim decorating. I love to make gatherings and take pictures of them, I would love to be a

photographer

for a primitive magazine. I am showing a little gathering that I put together for the kitchen with an old

Betty Crocker cookbook. When I was a little girl, for a long time this was the only cookbook my

mother had. There are four of us sisters, so as you can tell only one would get the cookbook someday.

We would go through the cookbook, looking at the pictures and trying new recipes.

 One year I went on an adventure, It took me several months, but I was able through ebay to get each

one of my sisters one of these cookbooks for their birthdays. When they opened up their gifts you

would have thought they all won the lottery, they were so tickled with their very own cookbook.

Here is a picture of my gathering.

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.
