Pictures from the old Farmhouse

My husband and I went to WV this past weekend and stayed in our old farmhouse that we are remodeling.

One thing I love about it there is the peace and quiet and love the old out buildings.

 They are home to some of the old home place treasures.

I wanted to share some photo's. You all come back now, ya hear!!!!!

Wonderful packages in the mail

Carol "Buttermilk Creek Farm"  asked me if I would like to have some fabric from her that she was

parting with. I said yes, and it arrived today. What a beautiful selection of fabric, each piece that I looked at,

I was already dreaming of what I would be making. Little doll dresses, pumpkin and scarecrow clothes,

snowman and santa outfits, table runners, my mind was just running on and on.

 I want to thank you Carol from the bottom of my heart, that was sooo sweet of you to offer the

fabric to me. I appreciate it so much. My stash of fabric usually fits in one bag, I do need to branch

out and get a plastic tote for storage now.

I met Carol though her blog. And for a long time I wanted one of her mousers, well I am crazy over

feedsacks and she made one that I couldn't resist with a feedsack apron. Am I ever proud that I

got that little mouser. I display her proudly and she also has the cutest feedsack and sheep to go with

her. If you have never seen Carol's work you don't know what you are missing. She uses so much

detail in her work. I don't know how she does it. Stop by her blog and check out her creations.

I am already in anticipation of what she is going to come up with for fall.

Birthday Celebration and some wonderful news!

Sunday we celebrated my grandson Coles' 6th. Birthday! I want to share some pictures.

The little smile on his face is worth a million dollars to me. He sure had a grand old time!!

And I want to thank each one of your for praying for my mom's arm. I went with my parents

to UVA today and the Dr. is very pleased with how her arm is healing, she is able to move

it some now. Four weeks ago he was pretty much sure she would require surgery.

I do believe in pray and I know for a fact that it helped my mom. I am just so thrilled!!!

God is good!!

Prairie Doll

I love anything prairie, I recently made this prairie doll for someone. Love how she turned out.

I used a Sweetmeadowsfarm pattern.

I stopped by to visit  Jean "Prim Crafts" a week ago, boy do I ever have fun talking to Jean.

And she is always so helpful giving me craft pointers, I am so glad I live near her.

Well she always makes sure I go home with a special treasure, She gave me one of her cute,

sunflower dolls, I put her in a flower pot, isn't she adorable. Thank you Jean, so glad you are

my friend.

Everyone please keep my mom in your prayers this week. We go back to UVA Wed. to see if

her arm is healing or if she requires surgery. It has been a long road for my mom.

I am expecting the best for her!

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.
