Wonderful surprise in the mail.

Today when I went out to check the mail, there was a package on my porch, when I picked it up,
I kept thinking, I don't remember ordering anything, it must be something that my son ordered.
But when I looked at the package, I saw my name on it.

It was from a dear friend  Trish "Ladybug" Wenzl, that I had met a couple years ago through blogging.
Trish has been a wonderful friend and encourager to me, she uplifts me in her prayers and
is always giving me words of encouragement. I cherish and appreciate her friendship.
Thank you Trish for your kindness, I cherish your friendship.
I love everything!!!!

Now to show you what was in the package.

Can't wait to see what is in the box, excitement!

Look at the is beautiful wooden bowl.

Love the stars on the bottom and outside also.

I love this beautiful Gathering board, so lovely for fall.

The cutest civil war doll that she designed, love how she is holding the flag, she is adorable.

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.
