New Mouser and Winnings

 My wonderful friend Carol of "Buttermilk Creek Farm" makes the most wonderful mousers,

she sent me one of her adorable mousers.  This is my second mouse from Carol and let me

tell you they are quite addicting. If you get one, you will have to get more.

  Carol is just so talented and puts so much detail in her work, I truly admire her talent.

I love my mouser and thank you from the bottom of my heart.  ( Don't you just love her little

candle that she is holding.) Carol you are awesome and such a wonderful friend!!!

I was also lucky enough to be one of the winners of an awesome giveaway that the talented group
The Folkart and Primitives Etsy Team 

They sure gave some wonderful prize. Thank you, I am loving my awesome winnings!!!!

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.
