New Primitives that I have made

We were really fortunate in this part of  Va. we had high winds and rain but thankfully no damage

at my house due to Hurricaine Sandy. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the people effected by Sandy.

School was closed  for two days so I decided to do some sewing. I made Mr. and Mrs.

Santa, I was inspired by a pattern by, "The Goode Wife of Washington County".

I also made a Santa using a "Bittersweetfolkart" Pattern.

I like to add my own touches to patterns, as I am sure most crafters do.

Email me if you are ever interested in anything that I make. FARMHOUSE PRIMS

Weekend Getaway

 This weekend one of my friends and I spent the weekend at our farmhouse in WV.

We just relaxed, went to a few thrift and antique shops and rode around in the country

and just enjoyed  the beauty of the fall season. We also talked and  laughed alot.

It was a real nice girls weekend.   I also worked on a pennyrug, the pattern

I used was from Karen, "My Colonial Home" .  I love her patterns.  The pattern didn't call

for buttons, but I decided to add them to the tree. Love how it turned out.

New addition to my Prims!

My awesome friend  Jean "Prim Crafts" made me the most awesome cats. Boo and Hiss, don't you just love

them. I met Jean through blogging and come to find out we only live 8 miles from each other. So we

have visited with each other several times,

Jean is so sweet and caring, I feel like I have known her for years, she feels just like

what do we country people say, "Kinfolk". Even the first time I met Jean, I felt like we had

been friends for years.

She has been a real inspiration and help in my crafting too.

I am just so tickled with Hiss and Boo," thank you Jean."  And I hope Jean doesn't mind me

posting this, but I have a request. Please keep Jean and her doggy  in your prayers, her

little dog is very sick and it is breaking Jeans heart. Jean is a very special friend and I

hate to see her hurting. Love you Jean!

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.
