Summer time fun

We recently took a family vacation to Ocean City, Md. we had a wonderful time.
It was wonderful being together as a family, and I ate my share of seafood, which I love.
 One of the highlights for me was having my grandchildren take an old timey photo,
they had so much fun dressing up and getting the photo's taken. Ocean City has sand sculptures
on the beach of Jesus, pictures just don't do justice, they are so beautiful in person.
 I also want to show my newest finished cross stitch, I am beginning to think of fall.
Lots of photo's to share.

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.
