I was able to finish 8 new bonnets this week in between working my jobs.

All of these bonnets are available at this time.

 I also want to show you my Americana Wreath that I purchased from Sheila "Country Impressions"
she does beautiful work. I love how it has the little flags, berries, rusty star and burlap.
I am also excited, I have always wanted a bunting flag for my porch, I finally got one and
Ronnie put it up for me today.
It looks good along with Sheila's wreath.

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.
