Santa came to my house early!

I am so honored to have Jean "Prim Crafts" as my friend and neighbor. We actually met though
blogging and found out that we only live 8 miles apart. Jean and I had such a nice visit yesterday.
She came with a gift bag full of goodies. Jean has such a kind heart and is always willing to help me
with any crafting questions.
 I am just thrilled with everything that Jean brought me. One thing she made me was a punched needle wall hanging. Now I want to learn to do punched needle.
I admire Jean's talent and am proud to own some of her goodies. Most of all I am
blessed to have Jean for a friend!  Thank you Jean!!!

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.
