Awesome Swap!

I am not quite sure how long I have been blogging but it has been a few years now. My very first swap ever was with  Tammy "North Carolina Primitives from the Past" since then we have become very good friends and do a swap with each other at least once a year. Tammy has been such an inspiration to me, and was
always encouraging me and helping me with my crafting. I feel like I probably wouldn't have ever
tried making a bonnet without Tammy backing me up and being my cheerleader. Then I started branching
out and making more things.
Tammy is so talented and constantly spoils me with her primitive creations! One of the things I have planned
 on my bucket list is to meet Tammy in person one day! The first thing I want to do is give her a big hug!
Now I will share pictures of the wonderful goodies that Tammy made me. Thank you Tammy, I love everything so much, but most of all I cherish our friendship!!!

Look how Tammy has everything wrapped so lovely!


Wonderful beeskep, watermelon/crow, School daze doll, hook and pods

Wonderful Civil War Sam!, he is really awesome!!!

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.
