New Penny Rug

 I made a new penny rug , it is nothing but penny's. I am quite tickled with it.

Ronnie and I spent the other weekend at the farmhouse in WV and after mowing and giving it a good

cleaning we took a drive in the country and ended up going to Dolly Sods a national park,

the landscaping there is much like Canada, and all the tree branches grow to one side.

 I have been working on a few fall crafts for next months Early Work Mercantile.

  I love things from the garden, even though I don't have a garden I live in an area where

I have the opportunity to get garden food. Yesterday I had fresh green beans with country ham

pieces, fried yellow squash and fresh corn on the cob. I bought the corn off of a local farmer,

while I was there the sweetest lady came up to me and was talking. She recognized me from my blog.

Even though she doesn't have a blog she loves reading them. She was telling me how much she loved

Jean of Prim Crafts blog, Trace, Grannie, Trace and Scraps, Linda, Parkers Paradise and Karen

Of My Colonial Home, We had such a nice conversation, and can you believe that I forgot to ask

her her name, but it was nice talking to you if you read this, and I almost got tears in my eyes when

she told me that she prayers for my daughter. That really touched my heart.

Wishing you all a lovely summer day!

Old farmhouse when we first bought it.

A sign I have back there.

This old handpump still works.

Beautiful senic view, there are windmills on the top of the mountain.

Love the view of the mountains

This farm is near us, it was owned by the Tusing sisters, their coverlets were displayed at the Smithsonian, A documentary was made of their lives.

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.
