one of the students drew me a picture. I told him that I knew he was going to be a famous artist

one day and that I would proudly display his picture on my fridge . I thought I would

My new Basket!

Ann from " 1803 Ohio Farm Baskets"  and I did a swap. She made me one of her long skinny baskets for

my table. I absolutely love it!! She also made me a label that I could attach if I wanted to. I  think I will.

I love sheep, especially since my grandmother used to live on a farm and raise them, I can remember

feeding the little orphan lambs with a bottle, sooooo cute.

  Now I think I am hooked on Ann's baskets. She does such nice work. She also does

demonstrations of her basket making. She is one talented lady, If you don't own one

of Ann's baskets you don't know what you are missing. Thank you Ann, thank you for

swapping and sharing your awesome talent with me.

And one of my awesome arrangements from
Sheila, "Seasons of thy heart"

the mail from a wonderful friend Sheila "Seasons of thy Heart"     .  She sent me the most wonderful

arrangement, it is beautiful and smells yummy!!! It is extra special because of the label. It has a

prairie bonnet label on it. It is lovely!!! Thank you Sheila, if you know Sheila she has a heart of gold,

and she is always thinking of others before herself. If you have never owned one of Sheila's arrangements

Uncle Sam dolls

I think I have pretty much made all of the bunnies that I am going to make for this year, I try to think ahead,

so I have finished two Uncle Sam dolls. I used a Bittersweetfolkart Pattern.

I made one a black  and one white. I am quite pleased how they turned out. I used raw sheep wool

for their beards. They are grungy and prim. Pictures don't do justice, they have rusty pins and

bells going down the front of their shirts. (Beards are covering them up.)

Surprise from hubby!

Yesterday my hubby stopped at a yardsale and picked me up a little antique lunch pail for $3.00.

I love it when he thinks of me. I love the lunch pail, I do have another one just like it, that I would never part with,

that was my dad's when he went to school, it touched my heart when my dad gave it to me, he knew

that I loved it and it was so special to him. This is a photo of the one Ronnie gave me

I also wanted to share a picture of Riley my granddaughter, she just recently had to get glasses and

she loves pink, so of course she chose pink frames, isn't she adorable!!
And she is growing up sooo fast. She loves her glasses and couldn't wait to show everyone at school.

I rem. getting glasses in the sixth grade and didn't want to go to school for nothing, but mine were ugly.

So many pretty glasses to choose from now.

New Treasure

I have admired Carol, "Buttermilk Creek Farm". wonderful mice creations for a long time.

I decided to splurge and get myself one of her awesome mice. This one was very tempting, since

I love old Bemis Seamless feedsacks. And this Granny Girt is wearing a feedsack apron.

I love little dilly that granny is holding. Carol puts so much details into her creations.

I love my Granny Girt. Thank you Carol, stop by her blog, she is also hosting a wonderful giveaway

of one of her mice.

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.
