Wonderful Surprise in the Mail!

Yesterday I went to the mailbox to get my mail and on my porch I spotted a package,
I thought humm who could that be from.
What a wonderful surprise, when I saw it was from Wendy "Ravenwood Whimzies"
 I opened the package like a little kid on Christmas morning. She got me a beautiful sifter,
she must have spotted my collection in a picture. And by the way I didn't have the sifter she
sent me. And a wonderful bar of peppermint goats milk soap, It smells wonderful.
 I will be so proud to display my sifter and love how the goats mild soap is making my bathroom smell, can't wait to use it.
 Thank you Wendy, that was so sweet, I will think of you whenever I see my sifter and use my soap.

I love how Wendy wrapped the gift.

Beautful sifter and yummy soap.
I haven't been very creative lately, but I did manage to make an Amish snow girl,
that I gave away for a gift and a standing snowman. I haven't decided but may just
keep him for myself. I don't know if other crafters are like me or not, but I rarely keep
anything that I make for myself. Now I need to concentrate on baking and getting ready for Christmas. I have a Christmas "Chicken Soup for the Soul", book I love reading it the month of Dec.
so many of the stories concentrate on the true meaning of Christmas.
Wishing you all a beautiful week.

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.
