New kitchen faucet and bedroom closet doors.

  Since I am off for the summer from my school job I am tackling some major cleaning that I haven't done for a long time. I am still working in my hair salon, but have been doing some major cleaning on my days off. I have alot accomplished, but alot still to do. I have washed windows, cleaned kitchen cabinets Defrosted my old freezer. I am cleaning out drawers and closets. I want to get these jobs completed so I can enjoy the summer. I want to do some fun things with my grandchildren. I have been trying to get things together to have a yard sale with my friend in July. And I hate yard sales .But I am hoping to get rid of a few things to help buy some new flooring for my LR.
  I don't know if you are like me or not, but I get really excited when I am able to do things to my house,even little things. Like painting my kitchen cabinets. I love my big old kitchen sink but wanted a new farmhouse style faucet. My husband installed one today for me and I love it.
   I have never shown any pictures of my bedroom on my blog because it always looked like
I was ready to have a rummage sale and I was embarrassed. I decided this year to do some major decluttering in my bedroom. Last year I thought about doing it, but the more I would think about
doing that major cleaning I would grab my purse and get in my car and take off down the road. he he
 I  put a new quilt on my bed, that I had in the packages for at least 3 years, and put up my new curtains.What a difference that made.
   I had old sliding bifold closet doors which were ancient. My husband recently installed new
closet doors and I painted them wicker white to make the room more open and lighter. Added a peg
rack which I hung a dress and bonnet and ditty doll that I made.
 I have also been buying a few fall patterns that I want to make before school starts. I love making
fall prims. I have alot of big plans for the summer.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.

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.
