Wonderful Visit and a Snow Day

Yesterday my sweet friend Jean, formally of "Prim Crafts", met for supper and exchanged Birthday gifts. As always Jean spoiled me and gave me way too much. We caught up on the happenings in our lives and laughed and really enjoyed ourselves, but as always are visit went way too fast.
Jean and I actually met through blogging and we had no idea, but we only live 8 miles apart.

Isn't she the cutest bunny girl ever!

Look at the tiny baby bunny sleeping in a carrott

Today snowed so I took advantage of having a day off. I worked on a needle punch project
and a Spring wool applique. I also made some homemade cinnamon rolls, I bet it had been
20 years since I last made them. I was afraid I lost the touch, but was quite pleased with how they turned out.

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.
