New pinkeep and some Christmas decor

I recently finished a pinkeep, I stitched on 18 count aida cloth. I don't think I will ever be able to stitch on linen.But am right proud of it.  I also have done some Christmas decorating and will share some photo's.
I enjoy the entire Christmas season, I celebrate all month. I enjoy the beautiful lights, baking cookies,
the excitement on childrens faces, listening to the ringing of the bell for the salvation army kettle,
the Christmas carols, the Christmas parties and Christmas plays at church, Christmas cards, looking for that perfect Christmas bargain, wrapping gifts, putting up my tree and looking at all of the
ornaments that have special memories for me. I could go on and on.
 Some of my favorite childhood memories was going Christmas caroling and taking the older folks
baskets of cookies, fruit and candy.Then we would have a party afterwards with hot chocolate and other Christmas goodies. My siblings and I would go out in the woods and find our Christmas tree, many times it would be a cedar tree.
Our church Christmas program, was always a high light.We would practice for weeks and weeks.  I also love watching Christmas movies,
especially, "It's a Wonderful Life", and "A Christmas Story". I have to watch these
two movies every year.  What are some of your favorite Christmas things to do or memories? Wishing everyone a joyous Christmas, with beautiful memories. Don't forget to remember the
true meaning of Christmas, the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.

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.
