Wonderful visit and swap goodies!

As most of you know I am so fortunate to live near Jean "Prim Crafts"  . We didn't even know each other
until we met through blogging. And am I ever the lucky one. Jean has given me so many wonderful pointers
and advice about crafting and has now became a really good friend! She is so kind and generous.
I have to watch about telling Jean that I like something that she makes or she will just give it to me.
  We recently decided to do a personal swap, of course I like anything that Jean makes, but I told her
that I would like an Uncle Sam and anything Americana, I also found out that she makes bottle dolls,
and told her that I would love one of them. She  gave me a glass bottle so that I could make one,
sorry but I forgot to take a picture of the bottle.
 Jean I love everything and have had such a wonderful time placing my goodies throughout my house!
I am so lucky to have you for a friend!!!!! I enjoyed our visit yesterday!!!
Yesterday I also went with my parents to Charlottesville for mom a check up, her arm and leg are healing beautiful!!! She is walking with a walker and we hope soon she won't even need that!!!!
She is enjoying being home so much!!!

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.
