Wonderful swap goodies!

Sara "Salmon Falls Prims"  and I  did a personal swap. I am always so thrilled to receive anything

from Sara, since her and her husband make the most wonderful wooden items. Sara  is

always coming up with something new.

  She spoiled me with so many wonderful things. If you don't know Sara, please stop by

her blog and check out her wonderful items. Thank you Sara, I love everything, and

I was certainly spoiled. I cherish my beautiful things from you Sara, but most of all

I cherish your friendship.

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.
