About Me

My photo
I have been married to my childhood sweetheart for 42 wonderful years. I have been blessed with one daughter who is grown and gone! She and her hubby have blessed us with a precious grandchild, Darbee Rae. She is eight years old and the sunshine in our days. I have always been a stay at home maid, cook, doctor, babysitter, taxi, wife, mother, and grandmother. I enjoy crafting. My interests include primitives, vintage and colonial styles. I love decorating my home. I enjoy traveling with my hubby and friends, reading, and trying different recipes. I am a Christian and enjoy activities within my church. I hope you enjoy reading about my daily adventures in crafting, shopping, and enjoying life thru the eyes of my darling grand daughter.

Test Run

Daughter is here to help me with pictures.  I am learning...hope to be able to load pics. on here very soon! Gonna post one today to learn how...here is where I wish I was today...

We visited Berlin, Ohio on vacation in September.  This little town made a lasting impression. The simple and serene lifestyle of the Amish ceased to amaze me.  Hopefully we can return there again this fall.  There is so much to see and do.  The shopping was great. Never have I seen the variety of primitives in one place.


  1. Hi,
    Hey my favorite store is in Berlin
    "Country Gatherings" I love it!
    Beautiful pic of the buggy!
    I live in Ohio,it takes me about 1hour & 15 minutes to get to Berlin! It is worth the drive anytime of year!
    Also love all the surrounding little towns!
    enjoy your day

  2. I hope to make it to Ohio some day. I have read so much about all the great shopping spots on other blogs. I get to travel to an Amish community once a year a ways from here. It is always fun. Blessings!

  3. I forgot to say welcome to blog land!! It is addicting. If I can help you in any way let me know. You are a no reply blogger which means that your email is not attached to your blog so that is why I am writing all this here. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment.

  5. I wish I was there also!

    I adore the Amish! I have a corner of my living room that is devoted to the Amish. I have so much respect for them. There is a small community of them about 20 miles from my home and I visit it as often as I can.

  6. I just found your blog tonight. Sure have enjoyed your post. I'm also from Ohio and I love going to Berlin and the surrounding areas. There is a really great Thrift Store in Millersburg if you come back.

  7. You were only about 1-1/2 hours from me in Berlin! I went for the first time this summer with my parents and my teenage son. I can't wait to get back with the hubs. The best fabric store is there, Country Craft Cupboard.
