Photo's of my goodies from Family Heirloom Weavers

Here are a few photo's of my bedding from, "Family Heirloom Weavers", I decided to put them in my

bedroom at our farmhouse we are remodeling. I am using a blanket for the bedspread and a throw across

the bottom of the bed. (Couldn't afford a coverlet at this time, so I am pretending).

And check out the awesome curtains I got there. OMG I love their things, and to be able to see

them actually making them was an experience I will cherish for a long time.

Diabetic Research Walk!!

My daughter raised over $500. 00 for Diabetic Research and walked in support of this on Sat. I am so thankful to God that she was able to do this, her health didn't allow her to do it last year. Here is a photo of her and my precious Grandbabies. I know one day there will be a cure(.I pray for a cure, as I watch her live with the struggles of this disease.) She has type 1 Juvenile diabetics. I call her children the miracle babies!!! You  Rock Steph!!!!

Cole's favorite truck, Mater

My husband is from Preston Co. WV old coal mining country. We hadn't been back to his roots for a couple years. Me, Ronnie and my daughter and her family went there to visit for the weekend. We attended the Buckwheat festival, ate Buckwheat cakes and sausage, went to a horse pulling contest and attended church where he went as a little boy. Only 17 attended church on Sun. I wish I had a picture, the church was built in 1861.

About Me

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.
