Some good finds, and a visit to the greenhouse

 My husband brought me home a few surprises this week, An old hanging coffee grinder,
an old crock and a sign. I think the sign is a reproduction but still like it. If you have any information
on the coffee grinder or pitcher I would appreciate it.
   I think he paid $20 for the coffee grinder and $12 for the pitcher, so I know he got good deals
on both of those. I can't find any writing on either piece though so I know that makes them of less
value.



I am really fortunate to live near several greenhouses, I  went to one last week and had so much fun after
the long cold winter. The flowers just made me feel so good and everything was so lovely.
I don't like to plant my annual flowers until about the 15th. of May due to frost, but I had to
buy something. I like planting unusual things or things I have never planted before.
Check out the beautiful flowers that I bought.

Super Bells Cherry Stars, I love the yellow with the pink.

This is a wave petunia, Called Moonnight Eclipse, she how the edges of the flower is green.

  7. Great finds from your hubby, I've never seen a hanging coffee grinder before! Your flowers are very pretty and my FIL has always said to never plant outdoors until after the full moon in May for fear of frost. He's usually right!

  8. Love your finds - coveting them actually! lol
    I, too, like to find unusual and unique plants! My old neighbor plants the same red geraniums and pink petunias each year...can't understand that when there are so many wonderful new plants to try! Enjoy Lecia!

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.
